My family loves BBQ, but there is always a few that do not. This place accommodates all of the pickiest eaters. The food is always good and so is the service. Check out the menu online.

We were in the area for a wedding, and 6 of us went here for dinner. Service was friendly and efficient. Food was fabulous.

My wife and I have eaten at the Flint location and it is by far the best one! The food is great, the decor is fun, the music is awesome and the staff always friendly. We loved it so much we asked them to cater our wedding Oct 1st 2016 and it was a HUGE success. Everyone loved the fact... More

I had a Manhandler sandwich yum just right with not to much sauce. And a side of wedges fries and a drink. Waitress was great and fast impressive décor and location near our motel.

After 15 years in Memphis, we know barbeque. This is a high priced, poor imitation. Greasy, salty, dry, and chewy. Even the corn muffins are prepackaged. The only good thing about the experience was the selection of tasty sauces on each table. If you are looking for authentic barbeque, you'll leave disappointed.

We've been here before. It is always very good. The feast for 2 feeds all four of us. The brisket is by far the best, ribs next then the chicken. Disappointed in the mac and cheese, it was watery and flavorless. Apples and corn bread were good. Potato wedges were also good. I make all of these meats myself at... More

My Mother loves barbecue. When she can't grill her own . Famous Daves is the next best thing to home.? I enjoy bringing her to enjoy the food.

Normally I don't like catfish because it's dry, but I had a two meat meal which included catfish. Surprised that it was crispy on the outside and moist inside, I liked it. I have eaten there many times and on the first name basis with a couple of the servers. Overall, I rate Famous Dave's as a good place to... More

We've gone to this location for several years, sometimes as often as once or even twice a month. It has been one of our "staples," for dependable food and service. Sadly, I have to say over the past few months, I've felt like the food quality is slipping. Today, I was very disappointed in the quality and quantity of the... More
