The food was a good barbeque, just not as good as other Famous Dave's I have been to. Service was a little slow. Not bad at all just not as good as I am used to.

This was my first visit to Famous Dave's. If you are planning a visit then you must enjoy BBQ. We were fortunate enough to have Shana as our server. She is outstanding. The ribs were great and I will definitely return.

Our family visited for Christmas Eve dinner. Very friendly service. We ordered the family feast for two which was actually the perfect amount for two adults and two kids.

Went there during lunch in the middle of the week. The service was fantastic and the food was very good. Had a salad with shredded chicken on it.

Great service, great wait staff, lots to take in, with their decor, and the food was very good. Again, I had the chicken, and it was so tender and juicy! The sauce given was sweet and tart bbq sauce. Very Good!!

I ordered a fish taco & a brisket taco. Both were deliciousness. I also had a local beer which was also nice. My husband had a brisket sandwich that was good as well. I also liked the decor! Would return - no complaints!

Well priced bbq with large servings probably best to dhare between too people if you aren't big eaters. Bbq was cooked well super soft with a great selection of sauces but nothing memorable.
