Famous Dave's is pretty consistent for a chain store BBQ. Today was a bit different. They offer a lunch menu of 1 meat (several choices) for about $9 and 2 meats (same choices) for $10. I wanted to get the 2 meat offer, but instead of 2 different meats, simply take two 4 oz. servings of the rib tips. Seemed... More

We got a party of 8 seated with no problem on a Saturday night, even though the place was pretty full. Always good food and plenty of options. Service was fast and helpful.

They do a pretty good job with ribs, pulled pork and chicken. The Texas brisket we had was greasy and overcooked. We did get somewhat tied of the waiter interrupting the meal to ask how we were doing.

If you enjoy BBQ Ribs, This is one of the best places in the world. Half-Rack is just the right potion and the customer service is equally great as well.

We ate here for dinner and the food was really good. It is served quickly, was hot and the portions were large. We both took home half of our ribs and enjoyed the next day. Their corn muffins are great. We would go more often but live about 100 miles from Sioux Falls but go here anytime we come to... More

I recently ordered a simple to go meal at dinner time and it was a disaster from the beginning. I ordered the salad/soup combination that comes with a corn muffin. I also ordered the Drunkin' Apples. I was told the soup/salad combination was a lunch item, but the staff person was sure the cook wouldn't mind. That was confusing since... More
