“Excellent restaurant to visit”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

My wife and I visited this restaurant for the first time and we loved the atmosphere. As we walked in we felt like we just walked into the wild west as there was antique decorations throughout the entire restaurant. We were quickly seated and given drinks our server took our order fast he was very friendly. While we waited we had lots of things to look around that in the restaurant lots of cool signs and other very old artifacts. The food was hot and delicious when we received our food the portions were very big. The server checked back to make sure everything was okay and kind of stood afar off not to be bothersome while we ate. The server knew exactly when to ask for dessert.. We couldn't resist we ordered some chocolate cake with ice cream that was so big and delicious we could not even finish it. This is an awesome restaurant to try and we will definitely be back

“Good BBQ”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Love the BBQ Chicken and the pulled pork. They come with 2 sides and a cornbread muffin. Food just tastes so good to me.

“Just about the only place to get BBQ in this area”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

We frequent this place because my husband enjoys it. Usually we share a Feast Platter, or we pick the two meat dish. We have been to a number of BBQ places in the south and I would rate the food pretty good.
The service has always been very good. I have watched families enjoy a night out here, as well as business being done during lunch time.
I do wish the food was a little hotter. It always seems to be luke-warm. This seems to be true of all Famous Dave's, however, not just this one.
Certainly leave room for the bread pudding. We usually share one since they are so large.

“Great Ribs. Good Size Portions”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

We had the very tasty ribs. They offer six different sauces you can put on at the table. They come well seasoned and tender. Another had the brisket. It was tasty as well. They offer several wonderful sides to choose from to complete your meal. You won't walk away hungry from this place!
