This was my favorite meal that I ate during our recent trip to Minnesota! Famous Dave's was awesome. I had the pulled pork sandwich with sides of cornbread and dirty rice. I ate everything on my plate, which is unusual for me. It was awesome! My husband and mom also enjoyed their meals. My husband had the burnt ends, which... More

This was enjoyed by my kids and their friends as they really liked the food, it was a casual setting with interesting antiques, and the service was great.

Our son took my wife & I out for a late Father's Day meal as I was out of town the week before. Ordered the All-American BBQ Feast. I was almost 2 PM on Saturday but waited over 15 minutes to get our food. While the chicken and fries were fresh, seems they ran out of ribs and brisket as... More

Recently bought take off for 7 hungry people. We had a variety of things - all good. We have come back many times and each time, we liked it. Good for a range of ages and a range of tastes.

Food was a bit disappointing. The meats had Ok flavour but they wasn't close to what we expected. Unfortunately the quality wasn't good enough.

I am from the South and we love our BBQ. Dave's ribs, chopped pork and everything else was amazingly good and the price was right! Their sauces were all great as well and the hot sauce was to die for!!

Very good food, children friendly, good variety of items on the menu and "BBQ" decor !!! We eat here every time we go to Minneapolis. This location had slower service than we are used to. Everything else was in keeping with the other locations.

The atmosphere with our "famous" staff was truly an experience and enjoyable. We loved the décor and the attention of our waitress and host.

Looking for someplace near the MSP Airport within a few miles, this is the place you might want to check out. Standard barbecue fair offering racks of ribs, briskets, and catfish. Service is quick and easy, so you can get in and out fast. Beer selection is average at best. Decor is "roadhouse." The variety of barbecue sauces available at... More
