My husband and I went to the Galleria Mall today and, of course, we ate at Famous Dave's. The food was great, as usual. My husband got ribs/burnt ends combo and I got roasted chicken. With the sides, we always have some to carry home. Trevor was our server. He did a wonderful job. He was knowledgeable when we asked... More

I reviewed this Famous Dave's a year or two ago, with 5 stars. My wife and I ate there again yesterday, and it's still 5 stars! We just returned from Kansas City and we had made a special effort to eat at highly rated (from TA) and other BBQ restaurants featured on Food Network's "DDD". Yesterday's Famous Dave's ribs beat...

We love Famous Dave's and this stayed true to what we know. However, it wasn't packed and we waited over 40 minutes for our food. It was delicious...so it's worth the wait. Good service.

If you love baby back ribs, go to Famous Dave. Best ribs in town!! The corn bread and beans go great with it. You love BBQ, don't wait. This is the best place to go in the Brentwood/Franklin area with your family.

I've eaten here a number of times and have even had them cater for a company event. It's been about a year since we visited as we moved out of the area but were back this weekend. We had a party of six and were seated right away. It took our waiter quiet some time to appear though and waiting... More

My husband and I were in Franklin for some R&R and we stopped at Famous Dave's for lunch after hitting the Galleria. We both ordered the burnt ends sandwich with potato salad. Very good and very filling. So much food! Landon is great! Good time all around.

We ordered the rib tips and burnt ends brisket plates with a baked potatoe, corn and potatoe salad. Nothing about this meal was good except the service. Nichol was attentive, warm with southern hospitality. As for the meal worst we have ever had both meats were dry and to compensate for it was slathered in sauce. The baked potatoe was... More
