This is quite simply the best barbecue anywhere in the Denver area. The biscuits are second to none. If you LOVE barbecue, you have to try this. The restaurant is relatively new and clean. The waitstaff is attentive and helpful. This is a nice place!

We went to Famous Dave's for Easter Dinner. We had Combo Plate. The Dinner was very good, but the bread was kind of hard (stale). The Service was fast and friendly . I will be back again.

They used to have a good lunch menu but they got rid of it on weekends forcing you to order high priced food and large portions for lunch. It is a chain place with chain food, average at best too bad they made a decision to squeeze people on the weekend.

Food and service was great. Got ribs and brisket, with BBQ beans and it was pretty good. Prices were a little steep, but not too bad. Really, my only complaint is no carry out drinks. I mean really? How can Famous Dave not offer to-go drinks?

I grew up in the south so have had my share of BBQ-most from bare bones shacks where you sit on picnic table style tables with a huge glass of tea and not much in the way of decor. But the food was why you went there. I had never been to Famous Dave's, but my son had been once... More
