We visited famous daves while up for a family reunion. It was chaoticly busy and a lot of things did not go so well but our server Melissa took it all in stride. She kept a smile on her face and was incredibly friendly when the employees seemed a bit tense. Food did finally come out good.

The food was great and the wait staff was very courteous and attentive. They are located central to the city and easy to find. Ample parking exists

We have been visiting the Rapid City area for a few days and have been disappointed by the local restaurants that we tried so we decided to visit an old favourite and were so glad we did. DH and I shared the feast for one with brisket and the brisket was one of the best I ever had-super moist, tender... More

Saw this in passing and thought we'd give it a try, it was empty to begin with,(just opened) and filled up rather quickly after our arrival, good selection of food, friendly wait staff, budget priced.

Great service! Plenty of food, you'll leave full and with a doggy bag! BBQ is exactly what you are there for. Full bar, but family friendly.

Have no complaints on the flavor of anything that we ordered. Wife's corn was over cooked and my Georgia pork was just slightly warm. We had great customer service

We saw persons waiting for a table as we drove by and decided to stop in the following day of our vacation. We are glad we did! Great food, friendly atmosphere. Yes, it's busy and you might have to wait, but it's worth the wait!

We ordered food "to-go" to take back to our hotel. They were awesome and threw in extra plates and packs of BBQ sauce! Everything tasted great and we were able to get our favorite....drunken apples, something not available locally anymore!

We have ate here before and the food has always been good, but this time it was exceptional. Service was great and everything was done in a timely manor. We order two entrees and had enough food for another meal at home

The only reason I give a 2 stars is the food was outstanding. The service was one of the worst that I've ever experienced. It took 2 hours and 15 minutes from being seated to finally getting the check and the restaurant wasn't even busy. As my son-in-law's favorite place to eat, he even apologized for service. Then I thought... More
