Had a nice lunch here before heading back to NY. Food was hot, fresh, and delicious. We did the feast for two. I can't go to Famous Dave's without trying everything.

Service is hit and miss based on who you get. The food is tasty, and overall good -do not expect a lot of health food- but Thats not why you go to BBQ!!! The ribs and fries are great

My wife and kids took me for my birthday. The food is pretty good but you have to wait a long time. The alcohol drink are water down, they fill the glass up with ice.
