Our group of four was looking for a quick meal and settled on Famous Dave's. They have a typical BBQ menu. We were given a nice booth and a helpful server. We picked drinks and food. The place was about 1/3 full. The rest of the group found the food acceptable, but my brisket was awful. They were nice enough... More

This place located in Layton UT. Had a business luncheon. Was not what was expected. I could have made my own BBQ ribs and baked beans. This food was dry no wonder they have endless coupon deals.

The hubby and I went to famous Dave's for an early dinner,(cheaper), we have always had good food and service, I usually get chicken since that is the only meat I eat now, hubby got a pulled pork sandwich minus the pickles, those are the grossest pickles we have ever tasted. The whole meal is feeling with what you get,... More

I love a good BBQ and even got my wife to come here for Valentine's Day last year. She is not a big BBQ fan at all. She agreed to come and after, she was glad she did. The meats were spot on! The portions were HUGE! We shared a giant platter and it filled us up just fine. The... More

All dishes we had were very good, though the cole slaw was particularly tasty. Catfish appetizer was very good, without too much breading. The Feast for Two actually was enough for 4 of us with some left over. Ribs and brisket were very good. Baked beans are nicely spiced and flavorful.

Very good ribs--not great. But for a chain restaurant, they are better than any other chain that I have tasted. The service is very good, and the menu is broad enough to please most people. We will come back again.

Dinner with business colleagues and wanted to go here because the good experience with one in Kansas. This one not so much - ribs very dry, and that's what you come for. The low drink prices made up for the disappointing ribs.

The bread pudding is the best I've ever had. This is a must with your lunch or dinner. I like to have it ala mode.

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.
