Started off with a friendly greeting. Waitress answered all our questions, brought out some chips and told us all about their 8 sauces, and tried them all with this bowl of chips she brought. We started with boneless wings, really crunchy, good amount of sauce and hot. Two of us shared a feast for one, (corn, beans, coleslaw which was super creamy, ribs, pulled pork and roasted chicken, corn bread and potato wedges), good iced tea, the third person had chopped pork on a bun with BBQ chips. Amazing smoky flavours, great sauces, great music, atmosphere and customer service. We even bought some sauces to bring home! (Only 2.99 each too!) Would most definitely come back again. Very reasonable prices.

We love Famous Dave's BBQ. Never a bad meal. The menu is consistently EXCELLENT! We have never had a meal we weren't completely happy with, and the customer service is top notch! The waitress, "Courtney" was the best server we've had in a long, long time. She was friendly, knowledgeable and very patient with my senior citizen mother's many questions! Courtney was responsive to our many requests without an "attitude"...she made our meal even better! It's because of outstanding customer service from servers like Courtney that we will return the next time we visit Saginaw. Food is excellent but if you have poor service...it doesn't matter how good the food is! Courtney is a breathe of fresh air when it comes to customer service. KEEP HER HAPPY!!! She'll keep the customers coming back for more! Thank you for great food and employing good people like Courtney.

As a GA native, I was interested in "grading" a BBQ joint in Michigan. Famous Dave's name says it all - great job on your recipe Dave! I had the Feast for One, and able to enjoy the St. Louis style ribs, BBQ chicken and pulled pork (one of my fav's). I somehow found room to finish off with their famous corn muffin...this is NOT anything you've had before going to Famous Dave's. The only request I had at the end was a wheel barrel to roll me out! Great food for a really good value.

The ribs are pretty good here and the side dishes and pretty awesome. The cornbread has to be one of the best offered in our area. There seem to be a lot of people her every time we go.
