If you want barbecue done consistently best this is the place to come. We are never disappointed. We used to travel around to different states, always checking out the barbecue places and for some reason they would usually fall short of our expectations...not here!
We love everything on the menu and their sweet corn muffins compliment beautifully. We love to get the meal for two...you can sample about everything and even take some home. We are always happy we stopped here. Very relaxing environment.

Great BBQ for the price. The food is very good and the portions are enormous. Would recommend the rib tips, hot sausage, beans and onion straws. We will definitely go back!

We had a great experience here. We went in December and it was snowy and icy out. Not very busy. We had great service and great food.

We shared the pulled pork platter for lunch and it was delicious! The service was fast and the manager stopped by to check on us, as well. Great food and a great price!

I know that Famous Dave's is a chain restaurant, but in my family's opinion they have the best ribs in Kansas City! My issue at other BBQ restaurants is most of them over smoke the meat, and all you can taste is smoke, but Famous Dave's get the right amount of smoke along with amazing sauces to make it PERFECT!
