This place is amazing, a must stop if you like great BBQ and Burgers. I had the Famous Burger, and it was FANTASTIC. Appetizers were great (rib tips, salmon spread) don't miss this place!

Stopped at Famous Dave's because it was close to motel. Had rib tips and brisket and both were very good. Mashed red potatoes and cornbread also very good. Service was appropriately attentive but a bit slow (placed was packed on a Monday night) Bread pudding was excellent and HUGE (enough for 2 or 3). Hot BBQ sauce is REALLY, REALLY... More

Attended with a group and both the service and food were great. Never had a bad meal at Daves and they are better tham most restaurants at accommodating large groups. Will definately return

The BBQ sauce they sell in stores doesn't seem to be the same as what is served in the restaurant. The restaurant is better and all is well priced.

Just finished dinner and the food was great again. However..stood at the front desk for quite a while as workers walked by us without a word of greeting..or a word at all. Don't managers teach employees etiquette any more? Lost an excellent rating. Lucky I love the food.

If you've had BBQ at real places like the Rendezvous in Memphis, or Arthur Bryant's in KC, you'll know just how average FDs really is. It's the McDonald's of BBQ. If average (priced like above average) suits you, then you'll love it. Myself, I want better.

I use to like Famous Daves' rib tips, and catfish, but after eating at different ones now, I just believe they have gone down across the board, and those here are no exception. I can say that the tips are tender though. The best thing was the corn muffin and the baby back ribs (though could use a bit more... More
