Love the food from this place. They have good portions and the bbq is so delicious. I like the decorations in the restaurant alot too.
On the plus side, the St Louis style ribs were meaty and scrumptious. Some 7-9 different sauces were provided, from sweet to hot and spicy. I would go back for the ribs any day. On the negative side, we were seated in the bar and it was full and loud when we were there. There is a large dining room... More
Decent food and above average service for chain restaurant. Food was mostly hit or miss depending on what you order. Great location. Easy parking. I personally prefer Sam's BBQ in San Jose but this is closer.
This is my 1st time at Famous Dave's and have to say it didn't disappoint. I knew it was going to be good, because it took me for what felt like an age to park, so much so that I went to the Target in the same mall area whilst I waited for some of the madness to subside. After... More
I'm a bit surprised that Famous Dave's ranks so high on TripAdvisor. It's a very good place for casual dining and tasty barbecue. The service is good, not great.

The rib tips had a good flavor, but no one liked the little cartilage/bones in them - put us all off although the... More
Great food and excellent american atmosphere. Would recommend to anyone who is looking for good food in a nice place. Ribs are a must.
My wife and I were dropping our daughter off at University and had no idea where to eat. Based upon the positive Trip Advisor reviews we plugged Famous Dave's in the GPS and headed toward the smoke. I was nervous when we arrived because it looked a boring typical chain reataurant. Boy were we wrong. We ordered the feast for... More
Pretty much says it all....I will go to Dave's just for the Long Islands! The BBQ is delicious too though :-)
Tried the mom & pop BBQ joints in town, but always come back to Famous Daves. Fantastic BBQ unexpectedly from a chain restaurant. We usually get the rib tips. Easy to eat without the rib bones. 1/2 the portion goes home for leftovers the next day. YUM!
