“Good food”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

If you like BBQ, then you have to stop in and have lunch or dinner, good portion sizes and easy on the wallet..

“Nice Meal. Pricese a little high.”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Went to Famous Dave's for dinner. The food and service were great. I think the prices are a little high for the portion size, but still a decent value. I guess this is becoming the new norm.

“Not sure why they're "famous"”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Went there expecting great southern bbq food however the food was disappointing. We are convinced the bbq was cooked in the oven with liquid smoke. We ordered the platter of mixed meats. The brisket was dry, the ribs were ok but not fall of the rib, the chicken was good, the pulled pork was dry, the corn was disgusting and mushy, the coleslaw was bland, the best part of the meal was probably the beans.

“All around Bad”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

The service at famous dave's in rapid city is just terrible. If you don't mind spending 2 hours to get a meal it might be ok, but if you want to get anything done today look for somewhere with a better sense of time management. The food howerver is just fine.
