Everything about my last three visits can be described as slow motion. Slow to seat, slow for the waiter to come to the table, slow with the drinks, the check, etc. The food is as expected with a large chain restaurant.

We visit Famous Dave's just about every federal holiday; it's our own special picnic to commemorate the day. The service, staff, and atmosphere lends itself to the anticipation of a delicious and delectable meal. Our favorite course is the "American Feast for 2" that includes ribs, chicken, brisket, corn on the cob, french fries, and corn bread. We always take most of it home and delight in the leftovers the next couple of days. Our dessert consists of sharing the key lime pie with graham-cracker crust that melts in your mouth with every bite. We have moved to central Pennsylvania, but we still make the trip to our favorite restaurant. It's almost labor Day; we'll be heading back to Frederick, MD next weekend.

The last time we were there, it was very good. My husband and I was shopping and stopped in to eat. We always get the meal that's served in trashcan lid. Very filling!

For a chain, they are suprisingly good. Prices are ok and service is quick. Good selection and nice staff.
