“Great BBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

We love the BBQ combo. They give you lots of food and the service is great. It's located is right on downtown. We get a nice walk after dinner to burn off the calories

“Good old BBQ in the Dells”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

For our party of 6 (4 teen girls and 2 adults) we ordered the family platter. Thinking we may need to add to it after we get into it...it ended up being more then plenty with some even left over. The food was great even though we were there towards the end of the night. Tasty and plenty of it so I look forward to going back to a Famous Dave's at other locations.
PS I have to mention also that I was extremely impressed with the staff. One of the girls in our party forgot her purse there with cash and her belonging. We called on Monday after our visit and they had it set aside for her with it all still there!!! Thanks and very impressive of the staff.

“Best Choice of BBQ Anywhere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

Stopped for dinner here as it was raining and this was the nearest restaurant to the casino. But that's another story. We have see the Famous Dave's signs forever, but the signs were not enough to pull us in. Rain, hunger, & proximity got us into this one and how nice the visit turned out to be. I had a 1/2 slab & my wife had a combo plate. Both meals were great. Prior to ordering, the server brought over a bowl of chips and a plate so that we could sample the 5 different BBQ sauces that they keep at each of the tables. That was nice as it gave us an idea of what we were getting into. We are glad that we happened onto this place as it turned out to be a great discovery for us and they are now on the top of our list of places to eat when we are thinking BBQ. By the way, a half slab with two sides & the corned bread was a lot of food.

“Fast Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

We were impressed by the fast service for our party of 13. The food was good as always. The waitress was fairly friendly. She knew that we were in a hurry and did her best to get the food out to us quickly.

“Predictible chain BBQ, good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

The location we visited was the one near the Kalahari resort. It was mid day, off season and we were the only table in the restaurant. It was clean and inviting, blues music playing in the background. There was no full bar service, which was disappointing, only wine and beer. The hickory chicken sandwhich had a chicken breast that was significantly smaller than the bun. The kids chicken was well done as well as the combo lunch meal. The server was great, taking time to give us chips, and explain all the different sauces available prior to our meal. It was a decent visit, we have been to several Famous Dave's and this was familiar and friendly.
