Famous Dave's is a friendly and good place for great BBQ and good prices. They have a good menu and a great bread pudding! The service is quick and friendly. The prices are reasonable. The portions are plentiful.

This was delivered to our hotel. I would give it four stars for first delivery and three for second delivery. Second time they didn't give us BBQ sauce or ketchup even though I ordered it.
