We love the food at Famous Dave's. The choices are great! You don't have to eat bar-be-que. I just wish we had one in Spokane!

Jonesing for "Q" so decided to stop, although always wary of chains. The pulled pork was OK, but the chicken was small, and rather dry. The portion sizes of entrees and sides are not quite up to what the pricing is. Satisfied our yen for BBQ but service was slow and unless I was in Missoula and had to have... More

We had been to other Famous Dave's so we pretty excited to try out the ribs here in MIssoula. We were disappointed by the service and delays in the food arriving. Seemed to be a mix up on our order in the kitchen and our sides were not prepared. The waitress was very professional and offered us 2 alternatives, which... More

We had a very pleasant dinner here. The baby back ribs were very good. Service was prompt and efficient. The noise level did not preclude conversation across the table. The free WIFI had good bandwidth. We recommend stopping here.

I have to say the staff wasn't particularly friendly but they were professional. That bein said, the food was phenomenal. This was my first time at a Famous Dave's and I was not disappointed. My children and I absolutely loved the food and had plenty left over to take back to the hotel. The price is moderate as you get... More

There isn't a better BBQ meal around, and you get plenty of food. Very nice facility for all, especially for kids.

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
