We've been here a lot and usually the service and food is decent. There are items that are worth getting and sometimes a few to regret. Our last experience here, however, wasn't very good. With a table of seven the waitress was extremely absent from helping us. Sadly sometimes this is what dampers the food, the service. Sometimes it is... More

We visited on March 18, 2016 for lunch we both ordered the 2 meat combo. Our waitress was Ashlee who was a doll. Food came quickly, and it was fresh and good. The two meats were the ribs and chicken. Total due was 23.71

We like the array of choices here but not necessarily how they turn out. The brisket was decent but not great, ditto for the beans. The coleslaw was, in fact, great. However, the mac and cheese would have been better labeled "creamy cheese soup with noodles," in that it was a liquid with macaroni floating in it. And the cheese... More

Free Chips with choice of barbecue sauce very good. My daughter had potatoes soup and salad. Salad was large and fresh and soup was very good., I had chili and grilled cheese. Chili was nice and hot and good. Grill cheese a real disappointment. Bread was soft and mushy. I like my grilled cheese toast crisp at least when it... More

I use to love going to Famous Dave's. I went last night and ordered the ribs. The ribs were small and I had to cut the rack with a knife. They were tough and small and ice cold inside. They use to give you twice as much food a couple of years ago. You have to order the half of... More

We went as a family, and it was good. I love the variety here, and that you get two sides with every entrée. The sides, often times, are better than the main course for me (that's a compliment, not a criticism.) I got the ribs, ordered them dry, as I like to sample the different barbecue sauces that they leave... More

Took my nephew out for lunch and boy do I regret it. Worst brisket I've ever had. Not tender at all. Good flavor. But, not tender at all! Good service, though.

We ordered the burnt ends. They were neither burnt nor were they ends. They were just thick, rubbery, barely cooked globs of I don't know what. They had no flavor whatsoever. Like giant erasers. We also ordered ribs. Neither of us enjoyed them. They were so fatty with no real meat on them to speak of. The qualify was just... More

Ordered a variety of menu items and all were excellent especially the ribs, tips and brisket. Service was very good. Would definitely go back.
