This place is great! Sure, it's a chain, but it all tastes like it was smoked out back of someone's mom & pop bbq joint! They have some seriously hot sauce there, and lots of others that actually taste good!

had the lunch bbq ribs and rib tips. My server, Maurice, was Top line. bbq ribs were excellent as usual, but the rib tips missed it. Maurice and one of the cook trainers, Casey, offered multiple times to remake it to get it right, but i was WAY already full so turned them down. But, there's always room for bread pudding and Famous Daves bread pudding is some of the best! Love the food, love the lunch price and the service at the Rapid City Store is always primo.
(if you want to feed the clan with a bit of different style, get their trash can lid feast.. you'll remember it for a LONG time and it delic ! )

First time for us at a Famous Dave's & we're looking to try other locations.

The brisket & Texas ribs were very tender & lean w/great flavor. There is a huge range of BBQ sauces from mild to hot. Good sides (cole slaw, beans, cornbread, etc) In addition to being stuffed, came away w/lunch for the next day --- this BBQ was great cold!

Great comfort food & a terrfic, very attentive server.
