“Hard to beat for lunch”
Reviewed March 1, 2012

We most often hit this chain for a pulled pork sandwich lunch. The price is right, and if you've got a bit more time, it beats all of the many fast food offerings in the area. Plus, the place just smells like there's good Q in the making.

“I think most people know Famous Daves”
Reviewed January 29, 2012

My wife actually loves their burgers -- funny since its a Texas BBQ place. We lived in Waco and know Texas BBQ (Uncle Dans BBQ to be specific - maybe the best in the country) and Famous Daves is good.

“BBQ in Wisconsin”
Reviewed January 29, 2012

Famous Dave's is a chain. It does decent BBQ. Its not outstanding, but better than what you will find in other restaurants in the area if you are specifically looking for bbq (pulled pork, ribs) I've had better bbq, but not in Wisconsin. (so far) Service was good and prices were okay.
