My husband and I visited this location on a recent weeknight. Although it was 5:30 or so, very few other customers were there. We both ordered what we've eaten and liked during previous visits: the Georgia Chopped Pork dinner. Our meat came in huge, unappealing chunks mixed with inedible gristle. The Wilbur Beans contained several hunks of sausage to the... More

Famous Dave's BBQ is great place to eat. My wife and I took 4 grandchildren to see Nashville. We ordered the All American Feast! Great taste of smoked meats, ribs, chicken and Brisket. Really good crispy fries and country sides with cornbread muffins. All at a really good price. 6 of us and we left a bag of lect overs.

This restaurant is a place my wife and I stop at every chance we get while going to Nashville or anywhere close by in Tennessee. The barbecue is delicious, the service is great, and the muffins that they serve are wonderful. I have never been to Famous Dave's and left hungry. It is great.

Both my mechanic and my regular doctor have offices close to Famous Dave's in Cool Springs, so I have eaten there several times and enjoyed the food and the overall experience repeatedly. I stumbled upon the place by accident, but now it's a destination for me. Nashville and vicinity has no shortage of barbecue restaurants, but this is surely one... More

If you like great prime meat in a cosy, friendly environment, doubt no more! This is the place to be! Perfectly glazed ribs, tender juicy meat, loaded potatoes (and I mean it!)... Too bad we are back to Europe tomorrow, but this is a place to return!

We went on a shopping trip and stopped in here. We ordered the meal for 2 it was enough food for 4 with ribs, brisket, smoked chicken, & barbecue. It also had corn on the cob, slaw, baked beans, & steak fries. We did take 1/2 or it home. Absolutely delicious.

We ordered take out for a work meeting. The sassy salad was good and so we're the loaded potatoes with the exception of the pulled pork was pretty fatty. Would have enjoyed it much more if some of the fat was removed. The baked beans and the brisket were also good.
