Famous Daves is popular but the sauce needs work and the prices are through the roof. If you take a family of 6 there and plates are average $15-20 and the BBQ is not great, it may be the last visit. I will say that the customer service here is outstanding. Meat was not best quality for the price.

The waitress was very easy to talk to and provided fairly good service. The food was excellent. It was early in the day for them but it seemed like it was usually a popular place as the parking lot was usually full when we drove past.

Loved the burnt ends here. Got the two meat dinner - burnt ends and sausage - with grilled pineapple and mac n cheese. Loved every bite of it and will end back again sometime!

On my way i stopped in this restaurant and ordered 2 beef tacos for lunch. They were excellent. Fresh taste and nicely spiced. And for a sharp price. This together with the friendly staff deserves 5 stars.

While staying next door at the La Quinta, my wife and I took the whole family with grandkids and Great grandkids to a lunch at Dave's. Everyone got hat they wanted. The food was fresh and very filling. It was a good value for the money and the service was very good. Thank you Dave's

We stopped in for supper as we were staying at the La Quinta next door. Very busy on Friday night but got served reasonably quickly. The brisket was delicious as we're the links. The ribs were very tasty but a little to chewy for our liking, my homemade ones are better.

Love famous Daves. I've tried other BBQ chains but have been disappointed. The cooking methods and wood they use for smoking meats can't be beat! Devils spit sauce is my favorite,

I used to love this place but not anymore. This last visit, I thought the restaurant didn't seem very clean. Our food was very fatty and we were not happy with the service. Too bad...
