First thing all the servers and hostess were wonderful. Very clean and of course the wonderful smell off bbq. I was unsure if the meal would be as wonderful as the stuff this chain sells in stores but, the food was excellent beyond expectation absoulutly...More

We stopped by unplaned and after reviewing the menu we both decided on the Sunday special of half chicken for $9.99. Our waitress, Kourtney, was very prompt and took our drink and dinner order. The chicken, small in size, was very good, nicely seasoned and...More

I would never willingly go back to Dave's unless it was the only place in town to eat. Like most chains, it has a nice decor and acceptable service and overpraises the quality of food. They also charge like they have good food - but...More

If you don't mind BBQ sauce under your fingernails, their ribs are very tasty. I do the baked chicken dinner with broccoli and a grilled pineapple spear: healthier and less messy. Service almost always good and a covered outside area to enjoy.

What delicious treat to have real barbeque at Famous Dave's. I recommend the garbage can lid since it gives you all the variety. The pulled pork or ribs go best their original sauce too. Located out by the Shoppes of Grand Prairie

We got the nachos as a appetizer (requesting no beans). Well there were beans on them, still don't know if there were beans in the chili (which the wait staff should have said something about if so) they use or if our order was incorrect....More

I ordered a burnt ends sandwich dry with a side of green beans. The meat was still tender and so flavorful- I didn't need any sauce nor did I need the bun( which for me is a real surprise). The service was great as well!
