If you like huge amounts of "comfort food" this is your place. Quality is not this place's strong suit.

Besides being very wallet friendly, Famous Dave's got the name due to some of the best BBQ around. I love their combo small plates to get a taste of two different meats. The cornbread muffins are to die for!!

Service was good, and really good BBQ. I had pulled chicken sandwich which was just great. Price for amount of food is fair, but the three of us made for a $50 tab. Overall satisfied with our experience and would go again.

I love Famous Dave's,... everywhere except Waukesha. The food did not meet the normal standards and it has been noted by several of us.
