“Excellent BBQ and Baked Beans”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

Good menu, plenty of optins, and everything tasted amazing. I would recommend the combo -- ribs and rib tips with baked beans and fries. AWESOME STUFF!! Kind staff and our server was also wonderful. Responsive, attentive, and friendly. Great dinner!

“Worlds best BBQ!”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

I was recently in Memphis Tennessee and stopped to try out what I had seen on Travel Channel as some of the best bbq in the nation. As I sat there eating it I was wishing I was eating Famous Dave's barbeque instead. Famous Dave's is about three times better than any other barbeque I've had all across the nation. The servers are always very friendly here and quick to oblige customers. The restaurant also has probably the best decor and seating of any barbeque restaurant with the rub shack theme indoors and checkered tablecloths. Be sure to try their sweet and zesty barbeque sauce.

“Good deal, great ribs”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

This chain never disappoints. These are the kind of ribs, pulled pork and chicken I like. Good beer selection.

Average food, average prices. Nothing special but nothing really wrong with it either.

“Not bad for Yankee BBQ”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

Atmosphere is fun food abundant the brisket is good and tender but the past 2 out of 3 times it's been overly salty. Tell them it's your 1st time there and you will receive something nice from them!
