Had a great meal here. Some smoked ribs and some baby back ribs. Absolutely delicious with great flavor and melt in your mouth. Service was great.

The food was good. The chicken dinner was a great choice and the choice of sides were tasty. I had steamed Broccoli with mashed Potatoes. We did not have to wait a long time for our food.

We Sat outside at a big table enjoying the fresh air, flights coming/going, yummy food and good service. We arrived at slightly staggered times, but the waitress was very... More

Family of four visited for lunch. BBQ was tasty and I am pretty picky with BBQ. There was a variety of sauces. Ribs were just ok, but brisket and chicken were good. Chicken was juicy. Brisket had good flavor and wasn't too dry. Service was spot on. Pros: Kid friendly, fast service Cons: A little pricey. Over $50 for lunch... More

Famous Daves because it's good. A bit loud over the weekend and busy but overall good food. Good selection of beer. Friendly staff. My daughters and I enjoyed our meal and food. I love me some smokey meat

Fantastic variety on the menu, just don't ask for vegetarian options. My Texas pork was nice and juicy, perfectly cooked. Service was good as my soda was never empty.

Delicious smells enticed my husband and I in for dinner twice. We're not sure why everybody rates this place so highly. The atmosphere is nice but both times we have eaten here the food has been cold. I love brisket but couldn't eat what was brought to me the last time as it was all fat and no meat. The... More

We've been to many other Famous Dave's locations; this was our first visit to this location. We were amazed by the efficiency of the service. (We saw some customers who already knew what they wanted to eat when they entered; the server took their whole order immediately and they had their food on the table within 5 minutes of walking...
