“Barbecue On Long Island”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

Living on Long Island, NY, there is not much opportunity for authentic barbecue. Therefore, having had my appetite whetted for the "low and slow" cooked pork, we tried the local Famous Dave's. We were pleasantly surprised that the food was not some ribs thrown on an outdoor gas grill. The meat on the St. Louis ribs fell off the bone, and the sauces added extra spice to the pulled pork sandwich, which was excellent. Also, the choice of side dishes was a pleasant surprise. I would recommend Famous Dave's for anyone who has the desire to "pig" out.

“Good BBQ!”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

Like this because it is a fun relaxing atmosphere. The Ribs and other entrees are very good. We dined with friends and everyone enjoyed their food. I like the choices of sauces or dry rub for the ribs. The brisket and pulled pork are also good options. The corn muffins are great. I wasn't impressed with firecracker stringbeans, they were overcooked and lacked flavor. Overall i say this restaurant is a winner. Also the service was excellent and friendly. Reservations accepted only for groups of 8 or more.

“Good BBQ”

The BBQ was tasty (with a bit of a spicy bite). Service was good too. Loved the collards (hard to find good ones in NY)
