Sounds odd, but the burnt ends and ribs are very good. Lots of flavor. Famous Daves is a good place for inexpensive no frills BBQ. On a Wednesday night in late January restaurant was not very busy but the food and service was good. A lot of food!

We've been here for both lunch and dinner, and have always enjoyed a good meal. There are good beef, pork and chicken choices. The kids menu offers good selection and the portions are generous.

If you're looking for some good bbq, check this place out! I ordered the chopped pork meal which came with half a cob of corn, corn bread muffin and 2 sides. Lots of food for a reasonable price. They also have an assortment of sauces at every table. I ordered a bloody mary and it was by far the biggest... More

We were there on Friday night. We were able to get a table quickly. Our server was David. He was good, funny and accurate. Our food was excellent as usual. I had the ribs and pull pork combo.
