We always sit at the bar and have our food before the quoted sat time. Food always comes out fast and hot. Try Dave's Smoking Tea minus the Pepsi, but substitute Mt. Dew

My husband and I got a rack of ribs to share and it was plenty of food with the sides included. We got half Kansas city style and half original. Oh boy were they delicious! We loved everything about the food and the service was good too.

Service was very good, and place not over crowded. Food was very nice also. Medium budget range, but a good stop.

A crazy busy Sunday, I managed for forget to eat breakfast and missed lunch --- so I was STARVED! Wanted tasty and delicious meal, reasonably fast. Famous Dave's was near where I needed to run my last 2 errands. Arrived about 4:30. No wait for a table. Delighted when ANDY was our waiter - he is fast, knowledgeable and pleasant!... More

When we arrived, just before 7:00 pm, the restaurant was almost empty. We were a little concerned, because that could be a bad sign. Within the next 30 minutes the tables filled to a slow weeknight level. I could be, because the time was during the opening ceremony of the Olympics. My husband and I shared the mixed platter for...

When we don't want to fire up the grill this place is good enough. We like the variety of BBQ sauces to go all the meat. Sides are average with the sweet potato being the best.

When I sat down, I was handed 4, yes 4, menus! I had a pulled pork sandwich which was OK, but a little dry. I paid 99 cents extra for what I thought was a side of cole slaw. It was actually a table spoon of it added to my sandwich. Side of mac and cheese was skimpy and uninteresting.... More

We recently enjoyed an awesomelunch with family while visiting in the Detroit area. It was our first time to visit Famous Dave's and hopefully won't be the last. The atmosphere is quaint and the food is delicious. I loved it all but let me recommend the macaroni and cheese with some extra kick added to it.

My beef brisket was very good and tender . Really enjoyed my house salad too! I was impressed with the wait staff and their ability to handle a large group and do multiple checks. Good atmosphere too. Would definitely go back!
