“Yummy BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

My family always enjoys Famous Daves when they come to visit. Not many changes to the menu, but you can always count on the ManHandler sandwich per my brother. Sis loves the corn muffins and hubby likes the ribs.

“A chain restaurant--but a GOOD one!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Good smoked and sauced meats in a chain restaurant atmosphere. Prices are reasonable, and the portions are big. It has a bar.

What more would a BBQ-lover want?

“Great Food - Gluten Free Menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This place has great BBQ. Many choices on the menu. My wife has celiac disease (no gluten) and finding a restaurant that understands this can be difficult. We were happy to find out that Famous Dave's does have a gluten free menu. There a not a lot of choices on that menu but at least we can eat here as a family if we choose. We did ask for the allergen sheet (most restaurants have one). With this, we were able to find several more food choices that did not contain wheat. The service was good. Overall, a great place to eat and for those of you who are gluten free, you should be able to find something you like.
