“Great Service + good "home cookin' "”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

We had lunch today at Famous Dave's and were fortunate enough to have the manager, Priscilla, as our server. She gave us the complete sauce tour and top-notch service: easy to see why she's the manager. We had a delicious meal (pork barbeque sandwich & collard greens and fried cod platter with mac & cheese (with a kick!) and fresh steamed brocolli and a great corn muffin) and great service. This Famous Dave's tries VERY hard to please - and they did!

“Really good stuff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Consistent and as delicious as the Dave's I've eaten many times at in Missoula, MT. Pick your BBQ sauce which is explained by your server and then....try and pick just one thing to try!! OMG we were so full when we left...we waddled to the car! Great decor and good food at great prices. Highly recommend this restaurant if you feel like a great burger, ribs, pork....whatever! You won't be disappointed!

“An OK Chain BBQ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

Tuesday lunch for two, service prompt and pleasant with explanation of the sauce choices [eight different in squeeze bottles]. The wife had the lunch special combo plate [one meat, one side, with paper wrapped corn bread muffin] $8.95 and I had the two meat combo, one side, same muffin, for $12.95. Interesting comparison of the two combo plates; we both had the spare ribs, and my second meat was rib tips. My TWO MEAT plate came with two spare ribs and four rib tips while the wife's ONE MEAT plate came with THREE spare ribs. The spare ribs were much better [meatier] than the rib tips, and the one meat plate was the better choice for less cost by about one-third less.

“Great atmosphere, food was good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

Had a pretty great dinner her overall. I had the southern rib tips and they were somewhat inconsistently cooked...some juicy and nice and others were overcooked to the point of chewiness. However, they weren't bad as much as not as good as they could have been. Atmosphere was really good and the servers were very nice and attentive to drinks.
