Had heard a lot about Famous Dave's and thought it was worth a try...especially when I heard they were offering "burnt ends" on the menu. The atmosphere was great although service was a little slow. We were there during happy hour so the time seemed to pass more quickly. Menu selection was good and the smell of bbq in the... More

I haven't tried them all but give me time, i will. Like Famous Dave's everywhere, the grub is great. I can't stay away from the two meat combo, hot link and brisket but other dishes are very good as well. Every table comes well equipped with a roll of paper towels and wide assortment of BBQ sauces, from Sweet and... More

The food was typical of Famous Dave's. I ate in the Bar and while I was in plain site of the bar tender, she applied most of her attention on the two young men down at the end. I finally had to stand up and ask her for service. I had a beer before my meal, which was OK and... More

I wanted good, tender and not very spicy ribs and pulled pork and that was exactly what I got. The sides of potato salad and grilled pineapple were also just right and the price ($17.99) included a very good muffin. My wife had chicken and ribs and was also very happy with the quality and quantity. We shared their famous... More

Food perfect! Atmosphere nice - a little loud when real busy. Ribs naked or a variety of sauces. Corn on the cob a must. Corn bread yummy. Great service with a smile! Only problem is sinks in restrooms. In order to wash your hands you have to hold knob down continuious with one hand then switch to the other hand.... More
