I had the Georgia Chopped Pork with collard greens and green beans. This was delicious!! And. Kept me in line with my carb intake. My husband chose a two meat combo. He... More

They have the best Bar-B-Q. Every time I come to or pass through Hermitage, TN. We stop and grab an American Feasts. We bring it back to Memphis, TN. It takes us a family of four. Two days to finish it. Save me two days of cooking.

My wife and I went to Famous Dave's with a coupon we were given due to a birthday. We both had the beef brisket and sausage sandwich combo and it was very good and filling. The service was excellent. We were seated very promptly. The value was very good and worth the visit.

A group of 10 went to lunch here, the table was ready in our own room, and the server had no problem with separate checks. 2nd time our group has eaten here, and always are served at the same time. Bills always correct. The food is delicious and generous portions - I took home baby back ribs for dinner.

The food was great. We ordered BBQ tacos and a feast for 2. The feast for 2 was enough for my 2 sons (17 &10) and myself. My wife also picked out of it. We had some to bring home as well. The service was OK but not great. She was friendly just not great. I would absolutely eat here... More

Good chain restaurant bbq with lots to eat, definitely won't go away hungry. Just a laid-back family style restaurant for BBQ.

We've ordered a lot of different things on their menu and I can't think of 1 think that's not really tasty. From the briskek to the chicken all is tasty. The corn muffins are really good. We always had good service

Service was seriously lacking and bordering unfriendly. They were busy, but seemed frustrated about it. Food was not that great as well.I ordered the ribs and fries basket; didn't know it was going to come all shoved in a little basket with my fries on the bottom cover in gooey Bar-B-Que sauce too.
