“We eat here about once every few months.”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

We travel to Portland and try to swing by Dave's every chance we can. It is a bit pricey but worth it.

“Good 'Cue Close to PDX”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Decent reasonable food and service near Portland Airport (PDX) is not the easiest to find. We like to stop here on our way to an afternoon flight, or returning in the afternoon or early evening. The food is consistent BBQ, and, unlike many Famous Dave's, it is a sit-down restaurant.

This was our 3rd time to eat at Famous Dave's in Portland. Each time has been a treat, the food has been very good and staff extremely friendly.

“Very good food”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We were staying at a hotel nearby and walked out the mall for dinner and came across Dave's. It was fairly busy, but looked comfortable with a good menu.

The BBQ meats are very tasty, and come with a good selection of sides to choose from. Had the BBQ beef ribs, and pork, both with excellent sauce, and cooked well.

The atmosphere is very casual, with everyone from families to business people there. There is a fairly high level of noise when it's busy, so not the place for a quiet dinner, unless you go very early.

Staff are very friendly, although when it was busy they are a little rushed at times.

Overall a good dinner and a place worth stopping by for dinner if you are in the area.
