“BBQ at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

We were in Chantilly to go to the Smithsonian The Udvar-Hazy Center and we were hungry. This restaurant smells so good even from the outside. The staff was genuinely welcoming and helpful. The food was about as good as barbecue gets. The rib tips were meaty and flavorful as were the St Louis ribs. The salad was cold, fresh and a nice array for veggies. The bread is soft and ever so delicious. Dave's pickles are a taste sensation of sweetness with a bit of a punch. (We bought more at Costco) We were in a hurry to catch a flight back to New Mexico so we had to eat quickly but savored every bite. This was our first dining experience at "Famous Dave's". We definitely going back.

“Great BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

This place never disappoints! Before we had establishments in Michigan I used to bring a cooler to Nashville and bring them home for friends. We've never been that the staff wasn't very friendly and ready to serve with a smile. Love the attitude they bring to the whole atmosphere. I highly recommend this place to BBQ aficionados.

This place looked so busy, the parking lot was full, but we walked right in and sat down. The food was good and service was good.
