I recently ordered this to go and was just as happy as when I've ordered in for dinner. The food is excellent and well prepared. I like the burnt ends and the large bbq variety item on the dinner menu. Great atmosphere and staff is very attentive

We stopped in for an early dinner - service was good and the dinner crowd had not yet arrived. Our ribs were very tasty and the biscuits were excellent! Good value.

Food is pretty decently priced and tastes good. Not sure about the service though. Waitress didn't know what she was doing and even admitted to it saying "I am pretty bad at my job" .. this was not comforting at all . When it gets busy , this place seems to fall apart .

I generally prefer local chains or mom & pop places, but I do confess I love Famous Dave's. Most everything is very good - ribs, brisket, chicken, etc. I like most of their sauces and tend to switch up to get a variety. Great place. Generally very good service.

When one goes to a restaurant they usually are seated and they are not worried about losing their table. Well God forbid you go wash your hands after you make your order because you like to eat with clean hands. We weren't away for a couple of minutes. Anyway the hostess decided to give our table away and when we... More

Go early whether for lunch or dinner. Its a busy place. If you got a big appetite go for some of the combination plates, you'll probably still need a doggy bag. They have both BBQ pork and beef. Sides are delicious too.

Food was slow. Manager came out and said they had no more white meat for the chicken so we waited a while for it to cook. After we received our food, the portion sizes were extremely small and we left hungry still. One order was the beef brisket sandwich with mashed potatoes. Most of the brisket was fatty and the...

I ended up at Famous Dave's for dinner on Friday to find that 4P was a great time to have the restaurant to yourself. The server was quick with drinks and guidance on what to order. I selected the 2 meat combo, with pineapple and Wilbur beans. The food was served quick and was extremely tasty. I took my time... More

We went to Famous Dave's because the other one we choose was full. We were surprised with delicious ribs and nice people. We recommend it. Easy parking also.

Fantastic catering! The food arrive on time, warm, tasty and the delivery setup piece more than could be expected. We had tons of complements on the food. fantastic! We served pulled pork, link sausages and baked chicken. Sides were potatoe salad, Wilbur beans and creamy coleslaw. It also came with honey buttered cornbread. We also had them bring lemonade and...
