We stopped at Famous Dave's as I requested no chains (apparently a small local chain), regardless the food was good. I had the potato so I which was full of flavor and was quite enjoyable with potatoes and bacon in a cream sauce. Lunch was the signature salad with pulled pork (options include chicken or beef as well). We all enjoyed. Reasonable pricing. Good attentive service.

The hostess greeted me with a smile and the bar tender was friendly and helpful in placing my order. The St. Louis ribs are the best in New Jersey.

While this restaurant has been open several years, we just never stopped in. Now that we know how good the food is we will definitely be there more often. See got there early on aSaturday - 5:30 or so - and the place was just starting to fill up with the young, the old and the in-between.

We were promptly seated and a waiter immediately came over and took our drink order and gave us menus. We both ordered ribs - one regular and one baby back with sides of garlic smashed potatoes and garlicky collard greens. They also served a nice chunk of cornbread! They were excellent. Cooked just right and the sauces were delicious. They also give you lots of packs of wet wipes and there is a roll of paper towels on each table. We both ate only half and brought the other half home. Next time we will only order the half racks. Perfect! There is also a drive-up take-out window.

I got the sampler appetizer. It was ok. The wings were small. I didn't really like the catfish. All the different bbq sauces on the table was cool. The service was good. Over not a bad chain restaurant.

If you're in the mood for great Ribs this is the very place. Our introduction to Famous Dave's was out on Long Island. We were a group of six, arrived at about 6:30 and had about 45 minute wait. It was definitely worth the wait. Our friends were astonished that we had not been to a Famous Dave's in NJ. We found several and we go to the one near the Menlo Park Mall. Never been disappointed; we sometimes call them for take out. Not only are the ribs great, the BBQ sauce is so good too.
