Found this located by my hotel, familiar with this chain as they are all over Minnesota. Had a great bartender that never let me go dry and he loved his job and it showed. I had a sandwich that had brisket and sausage and it was great, however the sizes have changed over the years, where one used to totally... More

I normally do not rate chain restaurants, as they normally do not change much from one to another. However, this particular Famous Dave's had very dry and flavorless Texas brisket in the "sampler" meal for two. I assume that they expect the diners to use their various sauces, which are decent, but nothing that I would take home. As far... More

One of my favorite BBQ places. All the options are great, love the pulled pork. I also love the variety of sauces they offer. Service is usually great. I heard if you name was Dave they gave you something but forgot to verify.

Food was very good and truly enjoyed the music that they were playing over the speakers not overly loud just right so you could talk to your company or friends.

We arrived at the nearby Hyatt hungry around 8:30 p.m and went to Famous Dave's because it was conveniently across the street. Nice atmosphere, friendly service, good drinks. I had the Kansas City ribs and they were meaty as described; my wife enjoyed the barbecue chicken. The restaurant was reasonably priced and a good choice for a casual, easy meal.

Thank Michael J
