Stopped in because I love the devils spit BBQ sauce that I get back in GA. Service was great, very helpful, professional, and quick. They even had real sweet tea, and the beef brisket was great.

My husband and I spent the weekend in Billings for our anniversary and had dinner here. We were seated quickly and our server was friendly. It did take a while for our food to come out but when it did, it was delicious! If we're ever in Billings again, we'll be sure to stop back in for some good BBQ!

I had relatives in town that had eaten here before and wanted to go again. (Apparently there isn't one close to them.) Food was good as usual although, as with most BBQ places, a bit on the expensive side for what you get. The ribs were very tender and flavorful and the "Dave's Mac & Cheese" is always amazing.

Had the St Louis ribs. Six of them. They were on the tough side. Did not " fall off the bone" as promised. Would not have them again.

While it's not my favorite place to eat in Billings, it's never a disappointment. The service is good. I like the corn on the cob. The cornmeal muffins were a bit dry this time, and they didn't come with butter, but I really didn't need to eat a whole one anyway.

Nice setting! The atmosphere was definitely western and great. But our beef brisket was dry. I did expect the food to be better. The service was good.

Famous Daves does not have "gluten free options" if you ask, but they will help with gluten intolerant choices. They brought out an allergy information sheet and we're knowledgable about the choices. The food was tasty and the service prompt and friendly.
