Great bbq meats, best cornbread - sweet style. Try the bread pudding. Great variety of sauces. You get a decent portion of food so don't go crazy ordering. This isn't diet friendly but true comfort food. There's a small sports bar on one side that...More

Stopped here for lunch. Great choice. BBQ sauce was great! We shared the appetizer platter and it was huge but delicious. Had rib ends, chicken fingers, catfish fingers, wings and onion strings. Service was great.

We enjoy the food and service that we receive there. Also the rewards cards are a nice incentive. The location is very good.

We had been looking for a great BBQ place and found it at Famous Dave's. They even give you 10% off your total bill if you show them your movie tickets. Even the left overs the next day were awesome.

When I was a kid in St. Joe, there was no barbecue up here that I remember. You had to go to KC and eat at Gates and Sons or Arthur Bryant's. Judging by this place, you still do. I should have known: by the...More
