I've always been fond of Famous Dave's. I had a half-rack, and it was nice and smokey, with okay service. You can count on this to be as good as most Famous Dave's you've frequented in the past.

Although indeed a Famous Dave's franchise, the ribs here are no where as good as all the other locations I've eaten at and, of course, with it being in Times Square, it's expensive. If you're a fan of Famous Dave's, best to skip this one.

If you really like BBQ ribs this is the best place to visit. It is located in the Times Square area just a few feet away from the Tickets place in 7th street. The food is really good and the plates are very large, so be careful when ordering. They have different BBQ sauces to please everyone's taste, I like the Rich & Saucy because its spicy and smoky.
The services is not very good, waiters are not really helpful, they just take orders and bring the food to the table.
Last time I visited this restaurant was not really clean. Again, you would have to love ribs and don't really care about cleanest and service.

Famous Dave's on 42nd street is located in the old Liberty Theater, which is an awesome setting. The food was ok (tried the ribs and they were cooked well, with nice sauces to go with them). But the sides were mediocre, from the cornbread muffin to the beans, nothing special. Prices are what they are for NY.

I have the sampler bar-b-q platter. The only negative was the fat that held the meat together on the 4th sandwich on my plate; but, I was too full at this point to eat it. The service was excellent and the location was perfect.
