We went on a shopping trip and stopped in here. We ordered the meal for 2 it was enough food for 4 with ribs, brisket, smoked chicken, & barbecue. It also had corn on the cob, slaw, baked beans, & steak fries. We did take 1/2 or it home. Absolutely delicious.

We ordered take out for a work meeting. The sassy salad was good and so we're the loaded potatoes with the exception of the pulled pork was pretty fatty. Would have enjoyed it much more if some of the fat was removed. The baked beans and the brisket were also good.

My wife has some type of salad and I had the ribs. Her salad didn't look all that fresh and they messed up on the dressing but that goodness they serve good portions of ribs.

Best chain BBQ rest you will fine. Sides are all good and sauces are knock out. Love it here anytime, but it was a lunch date this time.

This was an excellent place to eat BBQ! The food was great pulled pork,catfish,ribs,greens,coleslaw to name a few! Also the waiters and managers were the nicest people I've meant on our trip! Money wise it was very reasonable also if it's your first time there they give you a bottle of their Famous Dave's BBQ sauce! Love it you won't... More

We were in Franklin for some shopping and decided to stop in Famous Dave's for some dinner. I love their variety of sauces and perfect sweet tea. But dinner on a garbage can lid was a new experience! Yes, it was clean and lined with paper. We got super hot/fresh fries, brisket, corn on the cob, ribs and pork. And... More

We've loved Famous Dave's since one opened near us in Florence, AL. That one, unfortunately, closed but whenever we're in Nashville we always stop here. We had the rib plates, 3 ribs apiece, corn bread muffins, and sides. I had the baked beans (with sausage - wonderful) and greens. The ribs were as wonderful as ever, as were the sides.... More

Was pretty stoked about finding out there was a famous dave's near us. Also after reading the reviews me and my family was ready to chow down on some good grub! But I was and am still really disappointed in our meal. My girlfriend had the brisket dinner and it's wasn't nothing impressive but she did say her loaded potato... More
