Craving BBQ, we stopped by Famous Dave's at Cascade Station near the Portland airport. At noon the parking was a bit of a hike to get to the entrance, especially in the rain. You just take your chances when it is all mall parking. The decor is a combination of Southern, cowboy, and antique memorabilia. Wooden chairs and tables in... More

This place can be spotty expensive and sometimes well worth it. Last night had the fired chicken 4 piece dinner special at $10.00 which was very tasty and worth the price. $12.00 for a hamburger seemed a bit much but the quality was good. Ribs are always good but at $27.00 for a full rack they price me out of... More

We went for a Super Bowl Sunday meal in a Famous Dave's, located near the Cascade Station shopping center by the Portland International Airport.The north side of the building is a huge parking lot, the south side is a frontage road for the airport. The entrance is on the west side, so during inclement weather its a hike to get... More

Well, we go to Reno for the famous rib cook off in Sparks Nevada yearly and Famous Dave's has always been at the top of our list. However, today I was very disappointed with the amount of meat on their ribs (thank God I ordered anAppetizer) the meat was minuscule. Let's just say I will only go to Nevada where... More

It was a cold and rainy day...sounds like the beginning of a novel. But it was a great day to have chicken, ribs, brisket, corn on the cob, beans, cornbread and french fries....for two. My wife was sure we wouldn't finish, but I had a hankerin' and we ate everything except for finishing the pile of french fries. There are... More

Had the 4 pack of ribs with no drink and still cost over $20. Pricey, but right across the street from the hotel.

Took the family here that were visiting from Cincinnati and treated ourselves to a variety of the menu. Everything was fantastic. Great flavors and the service was very good. Not cheap but portions and flavor make up for the prices.

Six of us flew up to Portland, Oregon for a memorial service in January and we found ourselves stuck in an unexpected ice storm, we decided to get off the slippery roads and find a warm place to share some stories and a warm lunch! Our service was fantastic and the food was warm, delicious and fresh. We all had... More

Yummy is what best describes the couple of times we have dined here. Forego the silverware and dig in, this is comfort food and so worth it! Leave some place for dessert, you wont be disappointed!

I had the BBQ short ribs. The ribs, baked beans and coleslaw were amazing. I also ordered a baked potato side and I didn't realize they grew potatoes this big. The MaiTai was great too. Overall, I found this new (to me) place to be a great spot for lunch or dinner. I will certainly be back. Prices were quite... More
