Ribs, burnt tips, ribs, brisket, if you want great BBQ this is the place. We've had famous Daves catering our rotary July function at least 5 times and twice for our own personal house parties and have always had a great result. Always on time and plenty of food plus they always help with the clean up, good company. Tks,... More

Great service! Had loads of fun. I just wish they had more to offer via a gluten-free menu. Otherwise, it was great!!!

They graciously said yes. When we arrived 15 minutes later, they seated us in our own room with a round table. They brought... More

My husband and I went to the Galleria Mall today and, of course, we ate at Famous Dave's. The food was great, as usual. My husband got ribs/burnt ends combo and I got roasted chicken. With the sides, we always have some to carry home. Trevor was our server. He did a wonderful job. He was knowledgeable when we asked... More

I reviewed this Famous Dave's a year or two ago, with 5 stars. My wife and I ate there again yesterday, and it's still 5 stars! We just returned from Kansas City and we had made a special effort to eat at highly rated (from TA) and other BBQ restaurants featured on Food Network's "DDD". Yesterday's Famous Dave's ribs beat...

We love Famous Dave's and this stayed true to what we know. However, it wasn't packed and we waited over 40 minutes for our food. It was delicious...so it's worth the wait. Good service.

If you love baby back ribs, go to Famous Dave. Best ribs in town!! The corn bread and beans go great with it. You love BBQ, don't wait. This is the best place to go in the Brentwood/Franklin area with your family.

I've eaten here a number of times and have even had them cater for a company event. It's been about a year since we visited as we moved out of the area but were back this weekend. We had a party of six and were seated right away. It took our waiter quiet some time to appear though and waiting... More
