My wife and I recently visited Famous Daves while in KC and had a great experience. Food began with a few homemade BBQ chips and some burnt ends and I ordered a meat combo for lunch with brisket and ribs along with Daves Mac and cheese. Really enjoyed our food and would recommend to anyone in the area

While on a business trip a couple of us went near the Hotel to eat some BBQ. I had never been to Famous Dave's and wanted to give it a try. We were greeted as soon as we walked in the door and taken straight back to a booth. Our waitress was quickly at the table and answered any of... More

The BBQ wasn't anything to get excited about, but the portions were really generous for the price and the service was quick and friendly. Strong 3 stars.

Stopped here for a quick lunch. Was seated immediately. The service was prompt and friendly. I had the brisket sandwich and fries. It was great particularly with the Devil Spit sauce. Always worth a stop.

Everything here is amazing from the meat to the beans. The baked beans are amazing. You can't go wrong with the ribs, chicken, shredded pork, or sausage. Yummy! If you want a little bit of everything order the sampler.

My husband and I split the meal for 2 and left stuffed and happy! We even had a takeout box. Our server, Crissy, was fantastic too! The meal included chicken and ribs, with a 3rd choice of brisket, sausage, or links. We chose brisket and were very happy. The beans and corn muffins are also yummy!

We had the catfish fingers and rib tips appetizers with a salad apiece and it was plenty of food. I'm not a fan of Kansas City BBQ sauces but their sweet sauce with the pineapple that came with the fish was great.

Called in for take out on a holiday Saturday night. They man who answered the phone was prompt, courteous, and got the entire order 100% correct. Even going to pick it up and bring it back to the hotel (maybe 20 minutes?) It was hot, fresh and full of flavor. Not every take away restaurant is. Thanks!
