We had wanted to eat in Bonner Springs, KS at either of 2 barbecue locations, but both were closed. We found Famous Dave's and enjoyed an excellent meal, with good service. Place was crowded but minimal wait.

We haven't been in about a year. The last time we visited, the food was terrible!! Ribs were as tough as an old shoe! And the baked beans didn't have a good flavor. Very disappointed!!! Started going to Joe's!!

My food came out in 5-10 minutes, but I had ordered a salad with no tomato (they brought it with tomato). When the second one came out with no tomato they forgot my side of cornbread so I had to ask for that.

I have eaten at Famous Dave's many times and the food is always outstanding. The menu has something for everyone. The prices will not break the bank and the service is always fast and friendly.From BBQ to fish you can not go wrong.
