The only thing better than these overstuffed belly-busters is the high sprited attentive staff. These folks never diasappoint; they accomidate every weird request we make with a smile and quick service.
These are real subs made with freshly carved meat. The subs are better than the chains and better than any deli nearby.

“Legendary Pit Bar-B-Que is King at Famous Dave's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

First try the Georgia beef barbecue, with sides of either grilled pineapple, or Cole slaw, or pinto beans -- all full of flavor and tasty. If you go for lunch look for the special sandwiches. They are really flavorful and a bargain to boot. The Georgia pork barbecue sandwich, Memphis style with a touch of Cole slaw in it is a nifty winner every time. There are many types of barbecue to choose from and each table has a rack of 6 bottles of different sauces for you to try. Beers are cold, fresh, and served in a very cold frosty glass. Free refills on iced tea and lemonade. Bar drinks are of a generous size and properly mixed. We have been to Famous Dave's many times and we have never been disappointed. The service is attentive and accurate; the servers know the menu and can make intelligent suggestions. If you ask to speak to the manager (for any reason) the manager appears like magic, no waiting. Hosts, managers, servers, barkeeps, even the cooks strive to please the customers. They take all credit cards. Plenty of parking at any time of day or night - and well lighted at night.
