“Let's eat out”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Great spot for couples to stop in after shopping. The iced tea (alcoholic) is great. Don't t let it fool you it kicks in after you get up.Lol The smaller entree is great for matured age. Just enough and still had leftovers.

“Not nearly as good as expected”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Went there on a Wednesday night for their famous ribs...and was really disappointed. Our order came out real quick (maybe 5 mins or less) and this already make me feeling something cant be right. And the taste of the ribes confirmed it.
I will never go there again - If you are looking for delicious ribs, go to the Texas Roadhouse on Ford Street. They have falloff the bones ribs with great taste.

“STOP OFF”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

We always enjoy this place for meals. The short ribs are very tender. The variety of sauces makes it great to choose what you really like. The alcoholic tea drink will sneak up on you so only drink one. The portions are great and the service was very nice. Management is very accomodating and polite. Good for family and friends to gather.

“Rib Heaven”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

I love their St. Louis style ribs. Absolutely the best! The corn bread muffin and Wilbur beans as well as the coleslaw are also yummy. The catfish fingers with their dips will make you want more. Enjoy!

“Good BBQ”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

I love Famous Dave's BBQ sauces. I usually mix a sweet sauce with one that has lots of heat. but the Sweet and Sassy is gooood. The flavor of the meat is outstanding. If you can't decide what to order get the garbage can and try some of everything. You can't go wrong.
