The Memphis dry ribs were as good as I have had in awhile. The service was excellent and the meal was made pleasant by Hannah, our charming server.

My parents wanted to go here for their anniversary. They love Famous Dave's burgers. I believe it's called the Ultimate Burger? It has pulled pork AND bacon on top of the burger. I like it too, but the jalapeño bacon is too hot for me so I have to request plain bacon. On this trip, I opted for a stuffed... More

We've ate here several times as a family, usually the food is pretty good, especially the ribs. I had the southern tips last visit, not so good.

The service was great and fast. The food was served in a timely manner and it came out hot and there is plenty of it. We ordered the American feast for 2 and there is so much food we took some of it home. We went for my birthday and I truly enjoyed the experience. We will definitely be going... More

Much later than usual for dinner, we arrived. Less than an hour before closing. Despite the cleaning and bustle of the evening closing routine having started, our server was very nice and attentive. We ordered the shareable BBQ platter with a variety, which was fantastic and didn't taste like it was "left over" from the dinner crowd hours earlier. The... More

We met friends here for dinner. Their first time, our third to a Famous Daves. The food was great as always. The bbq pork was delicious as we're the sides. Can't forget the bbq beef brisket nachos. Always a big hit. Service was also super.

My family LOVES Famous Dave's. We got hooked on it five years. When my daughter went to Richmond, Va for school. We've ate at both locations in Richmond. Food is WONDERFUL. So we thought that since we were in Knoxville. We would eat at this location. We were disappointed. The service was great. The restaurant was nice. But the food... More
