as always the food was great, the service super and the price was right. we love this restaurant. we ordered the bbq platter for two people and it was a lot. the brisket was smokey and tender, the pulled pork on a slice of toast was delicious, then the 1/2 a chicken was tender and smokey....... and i cant say enough about the ribs..... nice and lean and meaty, seasoned to perfection, with this came 4 ears of corn, 2 corn muffins, the out of sight pork and beans with big chunks of meat swimming in it..and on top of this a great price........ mmmmmm, so good...... cole slaw was delicious ( i usually pass on the cole slaw, but this one was great).....cant wait to go to fort myers again and yes, pig out...... love it

Went in on Monday after reading a review on the Burnt Ends appetizer.
We both had it as a main with ribs, really good, it was a nice change from the usual feast for 2.
Creatures of habit we will be back later this week for some more.

Famous Dave's is one of our favorite restaurants. The staff is exceptional, quick service and friendly. The food is fabulous, every time. The ribs are by far the best we have ever had, but we go there often enough that I've had their appetizers, salads, burgers and other sandwiches. We have always been more than pleased. We also used their big room for a family gathering of about 30 people, everyone loved it!

Went for dinner last night and tried the burger mixed w/rib tips. Delicious! I don't know why Five Guys is winning "Best Burger" here. I guess people haven't tried this one. So much flavor, so satisfying. Great service. We had "famous Joey" he was awesome. They have 2 for 1 all day everyday happy hour! Can't beat that. We will go back.

Stopped here for lunch on a weekday. Wanted to visit after seeing Famous Dave on a Food Network show competing for a rib cookoff. Setting was nice - lots of memorabilia on the walls, some games for the kids (pool table, claw machine, video games) and large booths. Kids had a rib dinner (2-3 ribs, fries, soda and a package of Oreo cookies). I had a half-rack of ribs, grilled pineapple, mashed potatoes - probably a good 7 ribs, shared some with spouse and children. Wife had a combo of ribs and beef brisket with sides. We shared and everything tasted pretty good. Ribs were a little chewy, but with all the sauce choices we all found a flavor we liked. Brisket was very tasty. Wife thought the ribs were a bit too chewy, but it might be a regional taste, while we like ours more tender.

Excellent service, family atmosphere at lunch time, plenty of televisions showing sports and the kids were occupied with the games.

Nice place if you are in the area. We happened to be nearby visiting the Sun Harvest Citrus facility.
