“Great Food - Reasonable Prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

Warm and inviting restaurant on a cold night. Good steak and ribs. Go for the pecan pie.
Chatty TMI waitress was annoyingly nosey and loud.

“Try the new Flat Iron Steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013

Dave's has recently began offering 3 different styles of Flat Iron Steak. We ordered one of them this evening. It was excellent. We each got the "Savory Flat Iron" which is topped with a garlic butter and comes with loaded garlic mashed potatoes and Texas Toast. What a wonderful meal! The steak came exactly as we ordered it - rare - and was nice and tender with a wonderful flavor. The mashed potatoes were great and we were able to "mop up" all the great juices on our plates with the Texas toast. We have been going to Dave's for years for their ribs and pulled pork sandwiches but this is a whole new "favorite". We will definitely go again when we're in the mood for a steak. We had a wonderful server names Peter H, who was very personable, gave excellent service and fun. He made the meal even better. We would highly recommend going to Famous Dave's.

“Great ribs!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

We visit Maple Grove several times a year and Famous Dave's is a must visit! Had dinner there last night and per usual it was great. We like their regular ribs and ask for middles as we don't like the crusty ends. They are more than happy to accommodate us. We split a half slab and with the 2 sides we walk away satisfied, and don't need to float a loan to eat there! Last night was even better with the great service we got from our waitress, Brittany. She was really nice and professional.

“Burgers are awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

I eat at FD a couple times a mouth. Today's visit was the first time to order a burger. It was very good. I had the Jacked and Stacked medium well. It was a perfectly cooked burger patty with Texas brisket mixed in and topped with a huge load of fried onion stings. The bun was soft and grilled. I added a mix of Wilbur's Revenge and Texas pit BBQ sauce to make it a perfect meal.

“Great BBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

We love Famous Daves. It's a hit with family members too. We meet brother-in-law and his wife for dinner often. Super ribs, chicken, brisket, sausages and even have cat fish. Not usually found in midwest restaurants and it's excellent. Very reasonable lunch menu. A large verity of BBQ sauces and they have the best baked beans in the world.
