“Awesome Ribs”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Went with my wife as we hadn't been here in a while and had joined the on line pig club and had a buy one meal get one.
We got the ribs. They were fall off the Bone tender. The new rice is very good and the cornbread is the best. If your still hungry try the pecan pie with ice cream, awesome.

“Stay away”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Poor service. Food was way over priced for the quanity and quality received. I will not go back to this place. Actually tried it twice since I couldnt believe it was so bad the first time. Should have stayed away.

“Delicious”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

We don't typically review restaurants in town but dang they do a great job. The food is always hot, service is better than most all chains, and we always have great leftovers for the next day. Plus you can see a real life "celeb". HAAAA Charles.

“Always good!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

My family eats here often and we always have excellent food a great service. They can get busy on the weekends and the wait time can get a bit long, but every other place that is good has the same wait time! Visited Famous Dave's again this month and once again had great food, great service and even got to hear Charles sing! (Charles is a server who was on American Idol and never should have been kicked off!)

“Some of the best BBQ for the price.”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

I love food. I really love BBQ and know there are 50 different styles and flavors. I've had BBQ from Michigan to Florida to Texas. Not neccesarily the best of each location but I would say Famous Dave's has some of the best especially for the price. I have never been disapointed and if you are in this area and like BBQ this is a must. There selection caters to across the board taste and for less than $20.00 it is very hard to beat.
