This place has a great variety and although a chain, do a great job of making everything taste fresh and like a lot of love and hard work went into it.

Without many BBQ choices around, FD is one of the few chains I'll eat at. We have learned to get in at lunch...dinner sometimes is disappointing as the ribs will not be as moist. We LOVE the sweet water catfish! Service is always good, ribs excellent at lunch. And the cornbread muffins are heavenly!

There is barbecue and there is Bar-b-que! This is good food! Our service was lousy and slow that night but they were truly apologetic. The food made up for the service.

I've been to this establishment at least 5 times and each time it has been good. I say good because I've had better elsewhere. Not a bad place at all, it can get pretty noisy in the evening but mostly weekends.

We had a party of eight on Friday night. Probably eight different orders and they got the orders all straight and no problems!

Sunday visited Famous Dave's during a girls trip to Leavenworth, KS after Church services. We were greeted and seated expeditiously by our host, a server immediately arrived at our five person table, taking our drink orders even bringing a guest a water without being asked to do so. Famous Dave's server patiently returned to our table three to four times... More

The one that use to be near where I live in Maryland closed. I miss this restaurant. Lunch was great. St. Louis ribs and the pork were terrific. Lunch and tea for $15. You can't go wrong.

We ate here for a very simple reason; they have the tastiest pulled pork sandwiches we have ever found. I don't especially care for the fake redneck atmosphere but it is kind of funny and gives you a lot of stuff to look at. The wait staff has always been efficient and friendly.

We had a going away luncheon and had about 20 people. This Famous Dave's has a very nice extra banquet room attached to the restaurant for private events. I'm guessing it could hold up to 50 people. There was a divider on the South end of the room so it's possible you could fit more on the other side too.... More
