“avoid this location”
Reviewed January 14, 2009

A group of us made reservations with the intent of getting sticky fingers from dining on baby back and st. louis ribs alng with some hot wings After a long , long wait some of us got served. You couldn't cut the cold ribs apart.... even with steak knives,! All side dishes including baked beans and sweet potatoes were cold. Two youngster in our party of 10 who ordered chicken fingers.got served a hot meal...at least the chicken was hot...the fries.... warm and the cokes were good.There was also an appetizer platter which was for the most part ok.
Thank goodness we brought our own birthday cake

Thank gordee

“Worst ribs in NJ”
Reviewed January 9, 2009

After waiting over 1/2 hour for our dinner - 9 meals were sent back - not only were the ribs tough and dried out by the side
dishes were cold.

If you are wanting to try Famous Dave's in NJ - try the Metuchen location - 2 of our party had been there recently and stated that the food and services were excellent.
