This is a great place to get terrific food. The fried pickles are wonderful as an appetizer and the ribs are wonderful. Parking can be tricky, especially on weekends.

Thursday night, two adults, two children [although the boys order from the regular menu], seated promptly, with short wait until Alexis arrived to check our drink orders. All four ordered some form of the ribs plus meat combo, with varying sides. The order came in two pieces and in a reasonable time. Less than satisfactory were the baby back ribs... More

For a chain, Famous Dave's cranks out some good bbq. I had the brisket sandwich with a side of beans and a loaded backed potato. The brisket was cooked to perfection and the beans complemented the sandwich. The loaded baked potato was....well a loaded baked potato. It was a pretty tasty potato with a ton of bacon on it. The...

I miss good old Texas BBQ. Famous Dave's filled a craving I was missing. Though it still feels more restaurant like than your typical BBQ shack in Texas there was an incredible menu of brisket, ribs and chicken. Something that was never an option in Texas was get a chicken sandwich. I got the Cajun grilled chicken sandwich and the... More

My rating says it all about this Famous Dave's: average. Four of us came on a Tuesday night and it was empty. Maybe two other tables along with us so we were expecting to be in and out quick. Well, we weren't. First and foremost, the service was okay. The server wasn't the friendliest you'll come across and she was... More

The service at this location was very good. The food was average. I had the chicken sandwich that arrived lukewarm and the chicken was dry. Garlic mashed potatoes were also lukewarm. Others in the party had ribs and said they were good. Food overall average, service, no problems. I just felt like this dining experience didn't measure up to other... More

This is the first time we have tried the take out. Won't do that again. The server was great and friendly, but our food was not what we normally get or expect from this location. Ordered the brisket. It was 90% fat. Ended up with tiny portions.
