This was our first time at Famous Daves. I mentioned that to our server Bobby and he suggested the feast for two. Excellent choice! We sampled ribs, chicken, brisket, pulled pork, beans, coleslaw, corn, spuds, and a corn muffin. Best BBQ we have had. Definitely worth the modest price!

Famous Dave's BBQ is a family place with good food, lots of choices and cold beverages on tap. The service is always great, the brisket is generous and the best plus the service is top notch.

Finding restaurants that 8 of us could agree on was sometimes challenging on our road trip. But Famous Dave's in Missoula was a thumbs up all around. The pecan brussel sprouts were amazing! I wish I had ordered them as double sides. Everything else we ordered was excellent. I loved that they had Moose Drool on tap, the food was... More

the all- american feast, quaintly served on a trash can lid is superb. The tenderness of the brisket is divine, and the corn bread muffins ...

We stopped in as we traveled through Missoula. The place is so clean, the food so good and the service was excellent. Debbie S and the manager were super. We would stop here again if coming through.

Great BBQ. Took my parents there several years ago, and they loved it (as did I). I also love going there in Las Vegas where I live.

Food was beautiful and they fed our group of 18 really with ease. This is a must try place if you are in Missoula. Wish we could get that famous taste back in NZ!

Whenever we happen to be in Missoula on errands we make it a point to go to Famous Dave's. We've been to other FD locations and this one is the best. We always sit in the bar and love the relaxing woodsy decor, a cold local brew and some brisket or smoked salmon spread. Great staff that makes us feel... More

Stopped for late lunch and we were well taken care of. The food showed up fairly fast and the portions were fairly large. Every thing tasted great but this was a catch 22. There was so much MSG in the sauces that even though I have not had a migraine in 2 years I ended up with one by the... More

Nice location, good sized bar area, cold beer and great BBQ options. Lunch portions are smaller, but so are the prices. Can't miss out on the Devil's Spit hot sauce!

Thank Ross C
