No waiting. Staff was very friendly and helpful. If it's your first visit make sure you let your server know. They are kid friendly. Make sure you try all of the sauces. They are yummyful!

Stopped at Famous Dave's BBQ for lunch after flying in from Florida. Enjoyed the selections. Prices were comparable to other BBQ restaurants that I have visited. Service was fast and the server was pleasant. Would visit again when in the area.

The Salisbury Famous Daves is not what it use to be..... My boyfriend and I have ate at the Salisbury location for 5 years now, as a regular customer 2-3 times a week. Our visit on Friday, 8/23/13, was our last for good! The waiter acted like he was on Meth, he screwed up our rib order (The last two times this has happened; brought the wet ribs and not Memphis dry), told us that it will be 2 mins and we waited over 25mins!! He got distracted with new customers, he never came by to tell us anything about the replacement meal.... after waiting for 25 mins for my boyfriends food (mine came out the first time) we got up and left the restaurant.

Also, the Salisbury location is NOT open till 10pm on the weekdays nor 11pm on the weekends like it says online, they are open till 9pm on the weekdays and 10pm on the weekend.. in the summer people love eating later at night! The manager does NOT go around to the tables and talk to the guest to see how the service and food are. When we left we saw the manager out by his car with an employee, he wasn't even in the restaurant! I am a P.I.G. Club member and this is ridiculous. The waitstaff looks like they don't want to be there and don't have a clue what's going on... My boyfriend and I have been going to the Salisbury Famous Daves location for 5 years now and this location has been going down the tubes for the last 6 months, and we will NOT be going back!!

No wait at 6pm on a Friday is a plus. Tasty dinners and combo plates give you entree, two sides plus cornbread which stayed warm quite a while. The boneless "wings" are more like nuggets. They warn you that the home hot sauce is XXX Hot and "afterburn" a waittress term is accurate, it doesn't seem that bad at first.... What I didn't like was that after the entree arrived the waittress disappeard until the next table had to order - really could have used refills on the drinks after the hot
and reallly hot sauces for the BBQ. Sure, they don't make extra money on the drink refills but they should check on the customer more; it was busy but not jam-packed. Overall it was actually better than our first visit here.

We stopped here on a chance while traveling home from VA Beach. My goodness what a GREAT place to eat! The portions were massive; the flavors out of this world; the service beyond excellent. Our server, CHRIS, was helpful and extremely knowledgeable on the food they offer. He gave us a "taste test" plate of the 6 BBQ sauces and was right on the mark for each flavor.
My older son had a burger so big he could only eat half of it...he's 21 & eats like a early 20's male, so you KNOW that burger was big. My husband, younger son (18) and I had the 1/2 sized family meal..."feeds 2-3 people"....we all stuffed ourselves yet there was still leftovers!
Everything was delicious & cooked to perfection. Chris told us everything they make is cooked fresh every day...nothing comes out of a package ready to heat & serve & it DOES taste fresh!
