This rating doesn't come from one visit. I guess I am slow to learn. Ordering from the bar , I receive a menu so filthy it is stuck together. Bartender shrugs his shoulders when I bring it to his attention. Next visit I order a salad to go. Told it will be twenty minutes. After I arrive at the pick... More

Stopped by twice for winds to go. Very fast and friendly service and the wings were excellent. Good chicken, great Rich and Sassy sauce thrown back on a hot grill to finish it off.

I have been here so many times can not count. This is the best BBQ in the IE and maybe even in all of So. Cal. I have tried most of the food on the menu and always get my favorites from now on. Unfortunately they changed the brisket so do not recommend getting that but everything else is good.

The Famous Dave's margarita rocks, ribs and all meat dishes are phenomenal. The bread pudding is mediocre but you're not coming here for that

I had Burnt Ends, and a chopped salad and both were delicious. My co-workers all ordered a variety of items and liked everything. The meal... More

I miss Famous Dave's from living in Utah. I love the cornbread muffins and pulled pork. Several different sauces add to the experience. It was a great visit to an old favorite.

Dang....! Smells so good, even in the parking lot. And the flavor did not disappoint! Mmmmmmm Had the feast with a little of everything, and started with the buffalo shrimp appetizer. With our group one was not enough. They were so good we ordered two more.
