“Great service, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

We received wonderful service at this restaurant and since it was our first time visiting a Dave's, a free bottle of BBQ sauce to take home. The food was delicious and hot. Nice selection of beer as well. Will definitely visit again.

“Average food, at best.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We stopped at Famous Dave's for a late night meal after a day at IKEA. The food was average, at best. The server recommended the ribs; however, they were tough and chewy. The chopped pork was a much better selection. The side dish of macaroni and cheese, with corn and jalapenos, was a great taste combination, but as another reviewed stated, the temperature of the food could be warmer. Nothing was served hot....not the ribs, not the chopped pork, not the side dishes, etc. Everything was just barely warm. :-(

On a positive note, the sever was very personable.

“Yummmmm.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Absolutely great food and a lot to choose from. The staff is very friendly and the decor is fun. You could spend hours looking over the collectable hanging on the walls. You can also eat outside on the patio.

“not served "hot"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

the food was adequate in quantity for the lunch menu price, but my food was served warm, not hot as I expected. The interior was actually interesting because they had old photos of garages, cars from the 50's and had a homey type feel. Food could have been better is it was hot.
