Was in town alone and wanted some BBQ to take back to the hotel to eat while watching the game. I was impressed that this place had two types of BBQ so I was able to get Memphis style rubbed ribs. My server made sure I had everything I needed (extra napkins, wetwipes, plasticware, etc). She also threw in an... More

The food was ready on time, it was reasonably priced, and very tasty! It was also convenient, being only 10 min from work.

The food is fantastic! I usually go for the Beef Brisket because it is so good! It is always clean, the staff are wonderful and efficient. I will most certainly go back!!

We got to the Lexington Inn and Suites, and saw that there was a BBQ place just across the street, so said "guess we should try it". It was great, the waitress was more than helpful and the food great. She gave us a chance to taste the different sauces and even gave us a free bottle to take home.... More

This is one of the better Famous Dave's that I have been at. The service is always good. The place is clean every time we go here. The food is very good. Pricey but good. My wife and I will sometimes get the Feast for Two and have enough for 3 meals.

Service was excellent. Made sure we were taken care of but not to the point of being pushy. BBQ was good with a variety of sauce options. Price is reasonable. Good selection of sides and they were good as well.

Their BBQ food is of great variety with a good tasting BBQ sauce, baked potatoes an salads. I would've rated them excellent except it is the second noisiest Place in Billings and that keeps a lot of senior citizens away. Too sometimes it's not the cleanest place in town. But OH the excellent bbQ sauce!

This was our first visit here. I had the baby back ribs and my husband had the rib eye. Both were fabulous. There are lots of delicious "homey" sides and all were terrific. Their corn muffins are to die for. We left sooooo full. Both kinds of ribs are delicious, tender and can be eaten with or without the extra... More

This is one of a couple of chain restaurants that we frequent when traveling. The bbq beef brisket nachos are delicious. The restaurant is clean and the staff friendly. Braden was our server and his was very efficient. Great personality and an asset to the company.
