“Over Rated”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Over rated BBQ, average portions with higher than average prices. Better place to go would be the Road Kill Grill.

“Got food to go-good enough ”
Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

Stopped in and ordered takeout before going to shop Walmart for nascar Sunday supplies. Order wasn't ready on time, but anyway the pork ribs were good, sides were small and overall it was a pricey meal for what we got.

“BBQ Fix”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Gave this place a try after seeing their advertising. Had a brisket sandwich and found it very good. The sides looked very good also, I had the beans.

“Hoping for better”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

I have been looking for a great BBQ place since moving to Las Vegas over 3 years ago. Famous Dave's location is a little inconvenient for me. Having seen many (too many?) TV ads about FD's and mixed local recommendations, I decided to try it last Veteran's Day for lunch with a couple of friends. I have eaten many times at places like The Rendezvous in Memphis (1st time I went down the alley to eat was in 1960), rib houses in Kansas City, Colorado, all over Texas and a few competitions. I guess I expected too much. The ribs at FD's were dry and tough. Adding sauce was out of the question. There were 6 different sauces on the table in varying degrees of way too hot. My friends were less critical than I. The service was quick and friendly, so I left a good tip along with half my meal.
