I'm sure that there are some purists who would claim that the only place to get decent barbecue is in the South. Since I'm not from the South, I can't compare the barbecue at Famous Dave's with Southern barbecue. It really doesn't matter to me...More

I've been to this place numerous times. It is almost within walking distance from my home. Since I go there a lot, I have eaten lots of different things that are on the menu. Great place for BBQ (beef or pork) as well as burgers....More

I stopped here on my way home from work. Late dinner but the server (Amber) was very polite. I ordered my hamburger well done but it came out pink in the middle. It was ok. Not many people there. Good place.

We've found FD's to be reliably good service and terrific ribs; they converted our 9 YO into a ribs lover! Typical range of BBQ offerings with good variety of sauces to top them.

Great food, great service, great flavor barbecue sauce. My son had cheeseburger. Loved every bite. I had potato soup and salad. Everything was very delicious. Medium to high price but worth it!! Will be back when in the area!!

food is very good - portions are a bit small for the prices - atmosphere is very basic - they could do better in that regard considering it is not cheap

I've gone to Famous Dave's in Oakton for years, and have found the food to be "OK", but with inconsistent quality. The ribs are generally a good bet, but I've been served other meat that had clearly passed it's prime. Interesting conversation at the office...More

I am from New England, so I will admit right up front that I am not a BBQ expert. However, I do know dried out pork when I eat it. I went on a Wednesday so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt that...More
