Love Famous Daves for ribs. Their sides are also very good. Place is usually packed but we like to sit at the bar.

We came here with a large group during the holiday. Although we ended up with more in our party, the staff was very accommodating and seated us together fairly quickly. The service was great and the food was very good!

We always sit at the bar and have our food before the quoted sat time. Food always comes out fast and hot. Try Dave's Smoking Tea minus the Pepsi, but substitute Mt. Dew

My husband and I got a rack of ribs to share and it was plenty of food with the sides included. We got half Kansas city style and half original. Oh boy were they delicious! We loved everything about the food and the service was good too.

Service was very good, and place not over crowded. Food was very nice also. Medium budget range, but a good stop.
