I recently moved to the Cedar Bluff area, and actually am a supervisor at a BBQ restaurant in Knoxville. I'm always looking for new places to go because I'm so picky, and I get tired of my works food quickly. I felt like I was cheating on my job today when I came in because of how much I loved... More

The food was excellent and so was the service. We had chopped barbecue pork. Delicious. If you love good barbecue don't miss this one. Several sides to choose from and good sweet tea.

We were driving through Knoxville and wanted some BBQ. We have been to a few Famous Dave's in other locations. This one did not disappoint. The service was great and the food was good! Their beef brisket sandwich was tender and flavorful.

Evidently Famous Dave is a local Knoxville fellow that's into barbeque and competes on the BBQ circuit. The food's good but not great. And it's a tad overpriced. But the beer was cold and college football was on the big TVs. I dropped over $50 on dinner with four beers. Doubtful I'll ever be back.

The Memphis dry ribs were as good as I have had in awhile. The service was excellent and the meal was made pleasant by Hannah, our charming server.

My parents wanted to go here for their anniversary. They love Famous Dave's burgers. I believe it's called the Ultimate Burger? It has pulled pork AND bacon on top of the burger. I like it too, but the jalapeño bacon is too hot for me so I have to request plain bacon. On this trip, I opted for a stuffed... More

We've ate here several times as a family, usually the food is pretty good, especially the ribs. I had the southern tips last visit, not so good.

The service was great and fast. The food was served in a timely manner and it came out hot and there is plenty of it. We ordered the American feast for 2 and there is so much food we took some of it home. We went for my birthday and I truly enjoyed the experience. We will definitely be going... More
