Wife and I went to Dave's on our last night on vacation. The staff was friendly and the food was good. We had the roasted BBQ chicken and chicken tenders. The food was served quickly and the sauces were hot :). Good price and good food.

We had the family meal for 70 bucks Only thing not up to par was the corn. The rich and sassy was our favorite sauce. Ashly did a great job as our server

Went with a large group, and service was on the slow side. Server was very good, but our group needed at a minimum two or three servers.

Ribs were good, but on the greasy side. Mac and cheese was over cooked and too runny. Collard greens on the bland side. Overall, ok BBQ, but one would expect better when visiting the south.

I am not usually all that in to bar-be-que, though there are some restaurants I will go to. Famous Dave's is one of those restaurants and they have some foods and sauces that are just addicting. Even when I 've been in there and they've been busy, they employees handle business. Definitely recommend.

We're not usually interested in chain BBQ places, but went here on Veterans Day because the place next door was jammed. We were on a time schedule, so tried Dave's. They were jammed too, but we were pleased to find two seats in the bar and grabbed them!

We're both vets and they had a nice Veterans Day menu -- about eight choices for a meat, side, and corn bread. I got ribs, and had a very generous portion (took one home for a sandwich the next day). Our other choice was brisket which was also ample and excellent.

Service was quick, meals served piping hot, servers and staff pleasant, management came by a couple of times. Not intrusive, but helpful. For casual dining on a busy evening this really couldn't be topped.

Based on this very good encounter, would not be reluctant to go to a Dave's again.
