For a chain, their ribs are very good. Served dry and they have a good variety of sauces for those who want them (could use a good East Carolina red sauce)The pulled pork and the chicken is very good.

Ate lunch here while on recent visit great food but service could of been a little better, everything was tasty and great only thing we didn't like was the fact we ordered drinks and an appetizer and drinks didn't arrive until we asked another server for them. Then our appetizer and meal arrived at same time, food was good what you would expect for a chain restaurant, then we asked for to go boxes which we got quickly but it took about 20 minutes to get our bill and when bill was brought back had to ask for a pen from another server. Over all food was great and sure service is not poor all the time. would return again.....

Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express, and Famous Dave's was highly talked about by the front desk agent and 2 guests in the lobby. I couldn't have been happier. Great food. I loved the Friday night all you can eat Catfish!
