“Rude service, inconsistent chain store”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

I have gone to famous Dave locations in the South, Southwest and the Northwest...the Missoula location was disappointing at best. Save your money....Head north on Reserve to the Montana Club. Great food excellent service.

“Awesome BBQ”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Our first experience at a Famous Dave's. We left there with another favorite eating place in our books. Our waitress did very well in helping us with our choices on the menu. She also took the time to give us a sauce tour. The service was prompt and the food was great. Upon our waitresses recommendation, we had the feast. It was the best way to eat some of about everything that they offer in the line of meats. It was all great, but the chicken was our favorite.

“The best Ribs”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

We where heading home from Yellowstone and need a quick bite to finish the long drive. Stop here after reading a few reviews and we where not let down. We had more food then either of us could eat. So when my parents came to visit we made a special two day trip to see a somethings in missoula. And we had this as our stop for dinner my parents where very happy with their dinning experince as well. And for us the second time was just as good as the first.

“Tasty BBQ!”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Very friendly service, pleasant atmosphere. The BBQ was really good. We had chicken and pork. Nicely seasoned, very good quality meat. Delicious.

We were in Billings two days later and were happy to discover that the Famous Dave's there afforded the same satisfying experience.

“Great”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Famous Dave's is always great. Although, I'm super disappointed to read their nutrition menu and see that they still use partially-hydrogenated oil in their cornbread muffins and in other foods there. It's almost 2014; time to fix that menu! The food tastes great but I'll watch what I eat more carefully there from now on. I assumed that since huge companies like McDonald's and Starbucks have all but eliminated added partially-hydrogenated oils from their menu that the equally great Famous Dave's would have done so. Sorry for preaching here, I know it's not a forum for that.
