Famous Dave's is an award-winning bar-b-que restaurant chain. The food is very authentic. The ribs are fantastic and the brisket is what smoked brisket should be (smoke rings and all). They recently sold their liquor license so soft drinks only, but go for the food....More

We wanted a filling lunch and decided to stop in. For sure we were not disappointed. The brisket was just right and so were the ribs. SIDS are good also. It's not Memphis barbecue but not bad at all.
