Had the St Louis ribs. Six of them. They were on the tough side. Did not " fall off the bone" as promised. Would not have them again.

While it's not my favorite place to eat in Billings, it's never a disappointment. The service is good. I like the corn on the cob. The cornmeal muffins were a bit dry this time, and they didn't come with butter, but I really didn't need to eat a whole one anyway.

Nice setting! The atmosphere was definitely western and great. But our beef brisket was dry. I did expect the food to be better. The service was good.

Famous Daves does not have "gluten free options" if you ask, but they will help with gluten intolerant choices. They brought out an allergy information sheet and we're knowledgable about the choices. The food was tasty and the service prompt and friendly.

Our server was very attentive and helpful. Even though our party included little ones and we were more interested in catching up than eating, the experience was a very pleasant one. On this visit as on every visit, the food portions are more than adequate.

Was in town alone and wanted some BBQ to take back to the hotel to eat while watching the game. I was impressed that this place had two types of BBQ so I was able to get Memphis style rubbed ribs. My server made sure I had everything I needed (extra napkins, wetwipes, plasticware, etc). She also threw in an... More

We got to the Lexington Inn and Suites, and saw that there was a BBQ place just across the street, so said "guess we should try it". It was great, the waitress was more than helpful and the food great. She gave us a chance to taste the different sauces and even gave us a free bottle to take home.... More
