“Good BBQ”
Reviewed August 11, 2012 via mobile

This Resturant consistently proves a wide selection of great tasting BBQ - a difficult task considering this is part of a Resturant chain. Decor is typical BBQ and service is quick & efficient. They offer a full bar. Portions are large and the BBQ is good.

“Decent BBQ, for a chain.”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

My first time at Famous Dave's, and I don't have much to complain about. Food is decent for a chain. Service was very good, and the prices were reasonable. I would try it again.

“Corporate BBQ”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

Dave's may be famous due to having so many locations, but the barbecue is rather typical. That's not bad, just not special. Overall, I've found the food and service good. They could use a couple of cheaper items on their menu, altho the meal cost isn't high. But if you're looking for that unique, hole-in-the-wall place--this isn't it. But it is convenient and easy to find. I've been there more than once while on business.
