nothing special...very rushed service despite it being half empty. Food was OK but some of it was cold on the plate..others too hot to eat. Ordered house wine and was charged for a premium with no explanation of types etc. As I say just OK but I don't think we will go back.

Favourites were brisket, corn bread, ribs ( would be better if came dry and added own sauce in our opinion ) and Devils spit BBQ sauce. Rebecca our service made... More

We enjoy Famous Dave's in our hometown so there was no question about visiting this place while in town on business. I went in to place an order for takeout and was directed to the back desk to place an order. I stood there for over 5 minutes with 4 people chatting and within eyesight of me at the counter....

It was a good bbq restaurant. The staff was attentive. It was lunch time so it wasn't crowded. I would recommend it if you like bbq.

Great meal and lots of it! Amazing cornbread muffins, lots of butter, great wings, and amazing Beef Brisket. This place never disappoints. Great service and prices too. We will be back again for sure!

I walked over from the Hampton Inn. The food was good but service was very slow. I even had to ask to bring BBQ sauce over with my meal.
