We get the brisket and pulled pork. included are sides of good cole slaw, a mound of thick french fries, spicy hearty beans with sausage in them, corn cobbettes, and corn muffins. We take home at least half for another couple... More

Friends and I try to get to our local Famous Dave's at least once a month. Something else I love about Famous Dave's is how many times they have saved me when we had spontaneous guests for dinner and I was able to pick up a Family Feast tray of assorted BBQ and side dishes that saved the day in...

Went in with a group of 8, everybody was happy with the large portions. Smoked ribs were fantastic, had a large platter filled with all the goodies. The server was great to us and we had a blast in there. Tried the hottest wings they had, I give them a "B" for heat but an "A" for taste. They could... More

The restaurant is for casual dining; which I like. And Dave's is known for their barbque. The service was good but the food was not. I had the Brisket and it was extremely dry; not what I was expecting. My friend had the ribs. They were not dry but they were fatty and chewy. Also not what I had expected.... More

Stopped into Famous Dave's BBQ today for lunch, nice reception and they had some of their spicy pickles out there to try, make sure to try them if you haven't had them they are so good. Their lunch specials are always a good way to go and you just cannot go wrong with any of their food. Today I had... More

Ribs were above average. I would give them 4 out of 5 stars. Service was great. Décor is very interesting.

This ribs are so good. I like to try all of the sauces because they all offer a different taste, which is often what I'm looking for. "Bold flavors". The corn, I can eat everyday and mmmm mmmm, the muffin is to die for! Stop over and check em out! You won't regret

This is an amazing place to go if you are a RIBS lover. You won't be disappointed with any dish, especially the St. Louis baby back rack or half, it is like OMG amazing. They also have great dessert. Sign up for e-mail and get a free bonus.

The waitress was so accommodating to our every need but I can never get names maybe because... More

If you order the family platter for 4~6 people, you can pretty much feed 5 adults and one child. We like the dry rub rib more than the St. Louis, so we asked the waiter if we can have all baby back ribs instead of some of the St. Louis ribs, they said "no problem". All their food are great!...
