This resturant has small portion sizes and if you like to eat BBQ you will leave there with less money and still hungry. This place makes Chinese food look filling. The food is typical BBQ, but they try to fill you up on bread and make the plates look bigger by stacking the BBQ on bread. The best deal is... More

This was awesome my husband and I split a plate and got a bit of everything they offered. An all was good. We cook our own BBQ and make our own sauce so hesitant but oh my it was good wish we had one back at home

This was our first visit to Famous Dave's-we both thought it was excellent and my husband said the ultimate burger was the best burger he has ever had! I had the pulled pork and I have no complaints at all-excellent as well! We highly recommend a visit to this place.

We have not been to a Famous Dave's in a long time and they closed the one near us. So we made sure to eat here when passing thru. We split the BBQ chicken and it was plenty for the two of us. Emily did a great job serving us and was friendly, helpful and quick. Thanks Emily. We would... More

Foods are excellent. Good portion and tasty. Services wasn't as the greatest. We came in on Sunday at lunch time. Waitress spent time with their local regular customers but take no time to attend to us. Trying to give us the bill right after meals being served.

After a long day of traveling, we welcomed the opportunity to walk to this restaurant. It wasn't our first choice but other places had a long waiting list. There was nothing special about this restaurant. We've eaten at other Famous Dave's and they are just OK. I had the grilled chicken and my husband had the rib tips. He described... More

Food and drink was good, service somewhat disinterested. If you like BBQ then this will suit. Close to airport several airports nearby.

Not the cheapest place in town but definitely good food if you are in the mood for BBQ this place probably won't disappoint you the only con is the price which can be rather high but that's to be expected with good BBQ joints
