My wife and I ate here for dinner. We hadn't eaten lunch so we went a little early. It was around 5. It was busy but did not have to wait. The wait staff was very good, friendly, and attentive but not bothersome. She explained each of the sauces and some questions we had on the menu. My wife had... More

Called for carry out and was told it would be ready in 40 minutes. 90 minutes later and I am still waiting. On line orders got it worse!!

Not ONLY are their ribs awesome! But their Sweetwater Catfish is absolutely unbelievable!! I happened to visit, when they had the "all-u-can eat" catfish offer. If you can catch that deal, you will NOT be disappointed. Also, I'm not a big bread person. But their sweet muffins are one of the items, I look foward to eating with my meal.... More

This is a great place for really good BBQ. The waitress was pleasant and attentive. The atmosphere was what I think of when I think honky tonk. Prices were reasonable for the amount of food . We thought the lunch portion was good. My only complaint, mac and cheese with jalapenos? Collard greens so spicy they made my husband break... More

Came in with a group of nine on a Saturday night. Was surprised it wasn't more crowded but maybe it was the weather keeping folks away because we had great food and great service. I wish I could remember our server's name because she was excellent; it might have been Jasmine. Great value, would definitely go back.

Famous Dave's is our favorite place to eat. They know how to do BBQ! Have been going for years and never have had a bad meal. They are excellent for carry-out or to order in. Love Famous Dave's!

We've eaten at FDs before in our city and new what to expect, service was wonderful as usual but the chicken portion left much to be desired. Although my portions were decent my brisket and chicken seemed a bit over cooked. The sides were great

On December 14, I purchased salmon and half chicken for take out. Not long after eating, my partner and I did not feel well. Needless to say it was a long night that carried into the following day, as we had headaches and upset stomachs. I've visited this restaurant a number of times and a few times it hasn't been...

I found it hard to swallow paying over $10 for burnt bits of pig fat! I will not be returning... not my type of eating...

I had a terrible EXPERIENCE at the Woodbridge, VA Famous Dave's!!! I brought a carry-out order of Beef Ribs with two side orders of the greens. I got home and open the greens and found a foreign object (a piece of fine metal) in my greens. I contacted management and corporate about almost two weeks ago with no response! Very... More
