I visited this place with my family and the food was so good, we came back the next day for lunch. The waitresses were very nice and attentive. We didn't wait long for our food either. The first day the collard greens were very spicy which we loved...the next day they were very mild. So it's safe to say it... More

We had a pulled pork sandwich, a pulled pork salad, and a burnt ends appetizer. All were pretty good although the pickles were a tad bit spicy. The food is good for a chain BBQ place. Staff was nice, plenty of parking and it was a pretty clean place.

If you like meat this is the place. We had a meat platter and the meat was tender and juicy. Service was great and the atmosphere is fun. Lots of TVs if you like to watch sports.

This was across the street from our hotel. Our server was friendly but forgot to bring us requested items. I had the pulled pork sandwich which was really good. Prices reasonable.

I usually look forward to going to Famous Dave's but this time it was a sneak attack. All three of us in my party was sick after eating dinner this time. We had exactly the same meal so it was something common. It will be some time before I go to another one. An unusual Biker Bartender who had the... More

Sounds odd, but the burnt ends and ribs are very good. Lots of flavor. Famous Daves is a good place for inexpensive no frills BBQ. On a Wednesday night in late January restaurant was not very busy but the food and service was good. A lot of food!

I wanted ribs bad and was skeptical at first but the ribs and chicken was fantastic. Definitely will go again.
