Best chain BBQ rest you will fine. Sides are all good and sauces are knock out. Love it here anytime, but it was a lunch date this time.

Money wise it was very reasonable also if it's your first time there they give you a bottle of their Famous Dave's BBQ sauce! Love it you won't... More

We were in Franklin for some shopping and decided to stop in Famous Dave's for some dinner. I love their variety of sauces and perfect sweet tea. But dinner on a garbage can lid was a new experience! Yes, it was clean and lined with paper. We got super hot/fresh fries, brisket, corn on the cob, ribs and pork. And... More

We've loved Famous Dave's since one opened near us in Florence, AL. That one, unfortunately, closed but whenever we're in Nashville we always stop here. We had the rib plates, 3 ribs apiece, corn bread muffins, and sides. I had the baked beans (with sausage - wonderful) and greens. The ribs were as wonderful as ever, as were the sides.... More

Franklin has a great Famous Dave's. The staff is always friendly and the service is always fast. You can get a great meal here if you are looking for barbeque or ribs. I really like their Georgia Pork. It's my personal favorite. Their muffins are also delicious!!! I love the fun picnic-rustic atmosphere of Famous Dave's, too.

Ribs, burnt tips, ribs, brisket, if you want great BBQ this is the place. We've had famous Daves catering our rotary July function at least 5 times and twice for our own personal house parties and have always had a great result. Always on time and plenty of food plus they always help with the clean up, good company. Tks,... More
