This was my second time at this location. My first time did not go to well with cold food. This visit (about 9 month later) was GREAT!!! Good food, good service...waitress was excellent. No complaints this time around. I will be back.

Wonderful variety of food with amazing sauces. I wasn't a fan of their cole slaw but my friend sure was. I really enjoyed the fact that they bring you a platter of fries to try their variety of sauces on prior to ordering so you can choose which sauce is your favourite I had a Ceaser with my meal and...

This restaurant was perfect for dining with a 7 month old. The service was great and our meals were delicious. My ribs were tasty, my macaroni cheese was spicy (which I love!!) and our meals were prepared with hardly any wait (which was fantastic for dining with a baby with a short attention span).

We hadn't been to a Famous Dave's for several years, so decided to try it again on our way home from Branson. We were the only customers in the restaurant for an early dinner around 3pm. Our server moved booths to accommodate my husband which was really nice of him. However, we had to move because the ceiling fans were... More

Best place in the FM area for BBQ. Good value and family friendly. Can't go wrong with the bibs, can't think of any time when I had bad food here.

We stopped in Fargo near the tail end of a 6000 mile road trip. By this time, eating out was getting a bit less exciting for us. Then came Famous Daves and truly flavorful barbecue food. It was good to "kick things up a notch". They have a varied menu and the food is well prepared. We enjoyed mixing it... More

A wonderful place to eat as long as you have unlimited time or call ahead. Remember BBQ is not always instant food and most side dishes need to be prepared on order and if busy, your not the only customer in the place lol

I've never had a bad meal at any Famous Dave's. This was the second time I've eaten at the one in fargo, and the food was just as good as it was the last time I was there. I had a great platter that included rigs, chicken, two corn on the cobs, broccoli and corn bread for a surprisingly reasonably... More
