Server was higher than a kite. Took 20 minutes to put three sandwiches together. Air recked and its Highly dangerous to work high.

Had a meal here while visiting from Oklahoma. It wasn't bad but definitely not the "Famous Texas BBQ" they advertised. Would I go back...probably but won't go too far out of my way.

We did some work at the Colorado location and even after many calls and lies have never been paid. The owner is a account of some kind. I hope she doesn't file taxes the same way she runs the restaurant.

Nothing exceptional here...Famous Dave's is better. Had a mixed plate brisket and chicken; the brisket was okay, but the chicken was over cooked and rather dry.
