What a great place. It is very family friendly and the food is great! It is very reasonably priced and the portions not are ample! Have not had anything there I didn't like.

First time at Famous Dave's, probably will not return. I've eaten better BBQ brisket sandwich at Arby's. The fries were cold. Got this to go or I would have spoken with the manager.Certainly not worth 10 bucks.

They have improved. Service was fast and friendly. The food was good and plenty of it. The manager is a good change. He'll gain a little confidence with the customers, but he's running the house right. Just sayin

Every time we come to Springfield, we will eat one of our meals at Famous Dave's. Excellent BBQ, service and atmosphere. It can easily accommodate a large group. You food is served quickly and is family orientated.

Got to come back! Not only were the rib tips fantastic, their vegetable soup of the day was well prepared with a full-bodied cream & tease of spicyness. I also had their mashed potatoes. My server was super helpful & knew the menu offerings. I found out later he had only been serving there two weeks. I cannot wait to... More

The place is a chain, but that is were it stops. It feels like a local place and has the bar-b-que that competes with all the other local places at the high end. That means it is GOOD! Try not to go at the rush hour, because it is located near a set of intersections that the City of Springfield... More

Everything I've had here is great...chicken, burnt ends, sausage and ribs. Their coleslaw and cornbread is wonderful, too. Everyone seems friendly and provides good service. Prices not bad either.

Emergency trip to Springfield. Knew nothing about the city or where to eat. The hotel recommended this place. Salmon appetizer was fabulous, served on amazing grilled pita. BBQ (pork and brisket) was great. Probably the best server I've ever had. Great ambassador for the city.

Thank di716
