Tried the Barbecue Feast as a joke and it was amazing! Six of us actually took some home but the variety and taste of the food was perfect. Brisket, Chicken and Ribs with all the fixin's-- oh my! Kudo's to Lindsay for excellent service also. We had two teen girls with us and Lindsay treated them like adults, which is... More

Service was a bit slow but the food was typical for a Famous Dave's. Terrific sides and very good BBQ. A little pricy, but that's the way most restaurants are these days.

Haven't been here in about 6 months, but it's still good. They've changed a few things, New menus, and have added some items. Not your average prices if you're feeding a family on a budget. So my daughter and I only had BBQ nachos, appetizer sampler & 2 fountain drinks $32 plus tip. Our waitress was very nice and attentive.... More

We use to love visiting this place but the food and the menu has changed so much. When I asked the family if they want to go here ,they start laughing and say good joke dad.

My night out with my date was nice. We had gone to a movie and now needed dinner. I suggested Famous Dave's. The atmosphere was nice and the employees were friendly. They were attentive to your needs. So, I had previously ordered a pulled pork on a previous visit a while ago. I decided to try it again. I was... More

They offer about six varieties of sauces. My favorite sauce is Texas. It's just a small amount of heat, not overpowering. Between the Baby Back and the St. Louis ribs, I prefer the St. Louis Ribs. For dessert, we split the banana pudding between the four of us. The sides were all good. Our waitress was nice, friendly, attentive and... More

Sure you can order plates that are huge but when the food is nasty whats the point. We had dinner and it seemed ok at first but within 10 minutes it hit us. The feeling of wanting to vomit from the liquid smoke they use to BBQ with. The quality is poor and just not worth it when there are... More

So we have traveled far and wide to eat at this chain. We really like it a lot.. We've been to many of them, many times and usually enjoy the food very much. We fancy the ribs and the Bread Pudding. We get the Baby Back ribs - Chicago Style. Portions are decent. Last time I got a BBQ Salad... More
