went in for a "good" bbq dinner. our server cisco was lost and gave bad service. the manager (big n balding) was rude and seemed overwhelmed in the place. the food was pretty bland, but the pickles were great. I would pass.

Had three of their smoked offerings and enjoyed them all. A usual my favorite was the brisket. Good service and enjoyable surroundings.

I've been to many "Famous Dave's" all around the country and found that this one is the best! The ribs were huge and meaty! Service was great and the manager came over to check on us to make sure we were having a good experience!...More

We have eaten there many times. Great bar BQ. Tasty, well prepared and generous portions. Excellent place to eat after an after noon movie or shopping. Also just a good restaurant to make a special trip to.
