“Great Ribs”
Reviewed May 10, 2011

We've been going to FD since they opened. The ribs are consistenlty exellent. I prefer Texas beef ribs, but we're not in Texas. The atmosphere is very comforting in that they have differantly decorated rooms with manly themes. It is a great place to bring a group where they can share bbq served on a garbage can lid. We have gone through the menu and nothing really has been dissappointing. The two off us have been sticking to the big slab of ribs for a few years now. It comes with a corn bread muffin, half a piece of corn on the cob(always overcooked and water logged), two sides and a full slab of your choice of ribs. Between the two of us we usually have 3-4 bones left over. All this for around 20 bucks. The bonus is if your join the P.I.G. club(free),you will recieve free food approx. bi-monthly by e-mail. Free dessert, appetizer, and on your birthday month, possibly a free meal.

“Average food & hard sell”
Reviewed February 28, 2010

We decided to try Famous Dave's when the newspaper had a coupon for $10.00 off the purchase. The waiter was annoying with his constant pitches to sell additional items in order to pad the bill and therefore his check. When he saw we weren't biting, his attitude became cool and the service was slow. Food was average tasting and not very large portions. My baked potato and medium sized piece of meat seemed lost brought out on a very large plate without even a piece of garnish to fill in all the empty space. We left dissatisfied but would have been even more upset had we paid full price.

Excellent food! The tables have an assortment of sauces to try. Corn bread muffins, drunkin apples, and wilbur fries are some of the great sides offered. The best barbeque!

This is one of my favorite BBQ places. They have 6 different BBQ sauces tableside and their ribs are very meaty. I love that they serve their "feasts" on garbage can lids. The baked beans with the drippings from the grill are also delectable as is the beef brisket.
