Yesterday I visited this location's To Go counter, which has a separate entrance from the Dine In side. Once in and at the counter, I stood there for several minutes with not one staff member greeting me or coming to take my order. I left the restaurant without ordering. Seems if that counter was closed, there would have been a... More

Had a huge plate for two, filled with barbequed meat, ribs, chicken, potatoes, coleslaw... you name it. And a lot of BBQ dressings. Great taste, but I felt awful the whole evening, simply ate too much and too heavy for me. But if you like this kind of food I think it is a great place. The waitress was really... More

third time at this location,and probably last, everything from the chips to ribs extremely salty and over spiced to the point of not edible. Sandwich items are good.

Years ago, we tried going to this place multiple times. Our problem had been numerous, from the endless flies, which almost seemed staged to give you a feeling at being at an outside BBQ? But, during one of the visits, we found a wire brush bristle in the food. Apparently it came from a wire brush used to clean the... More

I have eaten in a Famous Dave's in New Jersey, and this restaurant offered a slightly different menu, but the same high quality, delicious food. I ordered a roasted chicken dinner, which came with a choice of 2 sides and a complimentary basked of freshly made potato chips. The portions were so large that I ate my leftovers for supper....

We ate here recently with our 10-year-old twins. They both had the chopped chicken children's meal and both ate everything. We enjoyed the meal and the service was excellent. Had no wait to go in and my children were amused by the decor. Would recommend for anyone who likes bbq food.

Famous Dave's that was located in Richmond, VA went out of business a few years ago and we were surprised and happy to find this location which was near our hotel. The Cedar Salmon was delicious and mashed potatoes superb. Emily C was our server and she was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable regarding the menu. She recommended the Bread Pudding... More
