Pros: BBQ Chicken wasn't bad. Corn on the cob okay. Cons: Indifferent service---they just couldn't have cared less about us. Hostess---indifferent. Server--awful. Ordered BBQ Chicken, Corn on the cob, and Baby Back Ribs. Sent the ribs back because they were like shoe leather and charred. Waited 31 minutes for the re-cook. Again, same way. Tough and charred.

We went here as a family. The kids meals were generous. My husband and I split the meal for two. It had a sampling of ribs, chicken, pork, fries, corn bread, and a variety of sauces. We did not walk away hungry. The service was good and we would return if in the area.

If you are looking for a southern flavor bar-b-que type place, Famous Dave's is it! We gathered there recently for dinner. The staff is helpful and friendly, the fireplace (near where we sat) is warm, the food is really good. Very country southern. And I used to live in Georgia. The decor, "atmosphere" reminds me of southern road houses throughout... More

We stopped by to eat lunch on our way out of town (visiting a relative in the hospital). The food was great and the service was excellent! We will eat there again if we ever get back to Indianapolis.

I've never been to Famous Dave's, but a friends and I I decided to try it after work. Boy am I glad I did. I tried to pull pork with corn on the cob and macaroni and cheese. Nice portions and very good food. Wait staff was very friendly and helpful. Our waitress even brought us some barbecue chips so... More
