Was expecting something more. Was told Famous Dave's had better food than another place I enjoy but it was not to be. Ordered the Texas Brisket sandwich and the sauce made the bread soggy and the portions were skimpy. Big suggestion here, let the customer and sauce. The menu never mentioned the sauce on the sandwich. Well I came, I... More

I ordered my food to go at this location. The food was prepared perfectly and on time when I arrived to pick it up. Always a good choice if you crave BBQ and it's the only BBQ in the area. Good size portions are always in order. All in all a good place to get full.

Famous Dave's has a good variety and something for everyone. I enjoy the chopped pork and the barbecue chicken. The sassy salad is nice too. I have taken coworkers there and they all enjoyed their meals too. The service is normally good and the food comes out quick. We try to go there often.

Upon entering the restaurant, the four young ladies working the entrance didn't even look up from whatever it was they were doing. It was not until I actually pressed up against the counter that the young hostess behind it cracked a smile and asked "table for two?" We were seated quickly at a booth and within five minutes our server... More

We are here for the first time last week. The food was great, waitress was friendly and I thought it was priced very reasonable. I will definitely be back.

We ordered drinks, an appetizer and the BBQ Feast for 2-3. The waitress was friendly and brought out our drinks, but it took way too long for the appetizer to come out. The boneless buffalo wings were DELICIOUS and worth the wait! The BBQ Feast came out shortly after we finished the appetizer. The BBQ Feast was great! We'll be... More

Get with it. Life is short. There are only so many ribs in the world, and so little time. Eve knew. It's a chain but if you want ribs, go there. It's convenient and much more than that. I mean there is cornbread and kale too...beans...and many more delightful accoutrements. Yes, you very definitely want to go here for the... More

If you are looking for good barbecue then this is the place. We have had lots of good food there. Not all the sides are good, but I enjoy the baked beans and the apples. The dessert good too. The service has been good. Lots to choose from on the menu.

Had a party at the house for 45 people. Famous daves did all the cooking, delivered the food, set it up including the plates, serving and eating utensils. Wow! Then we got to eat this amazing BBQ food! Everyone loved it! 5🌟

My family took me here for my birthday dinner Sunday. We all enjoyed our meals. The Barbequed chicken dinners were so good. My daughter had the Pork Tacos and really enjoyed them. Wonderful coleslaw and the best corn muffins I've had in a long time. Then we were treated a huge vanilla with hot fudge ice cream sundae, (on the... More
