We stopped at Famous Dave's for lunch and ordered the brisket sandwich. The waitstaff was friendly and the service was good. The brisket was tender and the brioche roll was buttered and toasted. There was a choice of 6 different barbecue sauces on the table, so we sampled all of them. We both liked the Rich & Sassy best and... More

Famous Dave's Great cole slaw, corn bread, and brisket. Baby back ribs left us quite disappointed. Full rack $27.99 & they should have paid me for my time (the time it took to cut the ribs apart with my knife the rip off the meat with my teeth ...leaving behind 1/4 of the meat!) Which was a little heartbreaking as... More

Never rec'd burnt ends we had ordered but the rest of the meal was good. Wait time was a bit too long and wait staff seemed a bit frazzled...but food was good.

My husband and I went to Famous Dave's late in the evening so it was not not full and I'm sure everyone wanted to go home. You would never know that however based on our server who was extremely friendly and attentive. One thing that is different from our last visit is they now have calorie counts on their menu... More

After a long day of driving we were looking for a good meal in a comfortable setting. Famous Dave's was all that and more! Our food was great, the catfish was fantastic! Our server was great and the whole dining experience was prefect ending to a long day! We will definitely be stopping here our next time through this area.

We came to Dave's as this is one of my boyfriend's favorite restaurants. Today, they were having free meals for veterans. He is a veteran too. He enjoyed his meal so much. Our waitress, Maureen was wonderful. Once again, we enjoyed our visit. Thanks to Dave's for providing free meals to veterans.

Small portion on the Texas beef plate and the meat was cold. Tasty and tender but had cold spots. Baked beans and baked apples to go with the meal. I'd like apologize to server Rick for coming into his area today. He obviously didn't want to come to work for whatever reason. Very uptight and not very friendly whatsoever. Not... More

Flying solo but wanted something different so I saw Dave's as I came off the expressway. I got the combo with ribs and pulled pork and it was pretty good. Ribs were not fall off the bone tender but good with the rich and sassy sauce. The pulled pork was even better with the sweet and zesty sauce. Fries and... More
