I love Famous Dave's. I'm not a huge fan of BBQ food, but Famous Dave's hits the mark. I especially love their pulled pork. They have ribs, corn-on-the-cob, corn muffins, coleslaw, ribs, etc. The service has always been excellent and the prices are fair.

We simply love this restaurant. Number one, its in walking distance from our home. The "Minnesota hunting, fishing motif" is so reminiscent of a simpler time. And, oh-by-the-way, the food and service are both outstanding. The "Feast" meals are just great to order if you...More

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
