Always good food. Service was excellent. Very enjoyable dining while traveling. We shared a rack of ribs and still had leftovers. We're very experienced barbeque eaters and this place never disappoints. Beer was cold too.

Cold beer and a baseball game - all good till the male server called me HUN twice! Give me a break - you don't know me, this is not the south and you are only 20 years old... quit it! I'd rather be called maam!...More

Sometimes the service isn't so great other times is amazing. The BBQ is fair nothing to write home about. The portion sizes are good though. Particularly like their bread pudding. Now that IS amazing!!!

We had supper following a long day of driving. We shared a full rack of back ribs between two of us. The ribs were tasty, however they seemed a bit overcooked (dry). The service was good, the atmosphere nice.

After dining there quite a few times, this place is a crap shoot. Sometimes their food is excellent, and sometimes the cooks are sleep-walking... If you're not a gambler, I suggest staying away...

Dave's is great bbq from all around the country. You might not be in North Carolina, Texas, or Kansas City but the food makes you think you are. The prices though were a bit high.

Famous Dave's is a great restaurant and it is always full. The locals really love it and always suggest it to others if asked. They give you ample food and cater to the kids as well. Be prepared to get sticky and messy but they...More

This is an ok BBQ place. Nice atmosphere and friendly helpful staff. I ordered the Smoked Brisket platter. No complaints about the sides,but the brisket seemed slightly undercooked and was pretty fatty. Tasty none the less. The prices seemed fairly reasonable
