“Melt in the Mouth!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014 via mobile

We stopped on out way to Fort Wayne after 2 flights from Calgary, AB. Friends had recommended this chain of restaurant to us, so we thought we'd give it a try. Oh my, it was delicious!! The server was so hospitable, efficient and fun!
The food he recommended was amazing. I had the sampler meal for 1....it was so yummy! The brisket just melted in my mouth. The corn bread was just wonderful. Our family of 4 still rave about this place. We ate out a lot that week, and nothing could match our experience at Famous Dave's :-)

“Second Time as Good as the First”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

We chowed down on ribs here about 4 months ago and made a return visit a couple weeks ago. Both visits were very good finding the food, service, and atmosphere very satisfying. Ribs were not over cooked, very moist, hot and meaty - just the way we like them. We have been to other rib joints with varying degree of satisfaction. We will definitely return when the "rib" mood hits again.

“Gluten Free was good but ......”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

The bbq chicken and ribs were really good, and they seemed to understand the concept of keeping the food as safe as possible. I realize any time you eat out and need gluten-free food there is a chance for cross contamination.

We ate our lunch that consisted of BBQ chicken and ribs as well as sides of apple sauce and veggies and then ordered a gluten-free take out meal. When I arrived home and opened the box, there was a corn muffin that had bounced around in the box contaminating all the gluten-free food in the box, so we couldn't eat it. I didn't have time to call the restaurant or go back since it wasn't really close, so we just threw it away.

Suggestions to all: If you order take out, make sure you look at it before you leave. I almost always do, but this time we were in a bit of a hurry and they did well with the 2 meals so I didn't follow my own rule!

“Great BBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

We had a great meal and wonderful service from "Famous Art." The cornbread is amazing. If you have time to venture off the interstate there is a great locally owned place closer to Westfield, but this is a wonderful choice as well.
