Famous Dave's is my favorite barbeque joint, it's right around the corner from my house... Lunch specials are really good in terms of portion and price... happy hour is good too!

The food is all incredible - never had a meal I didn't love. Even those who aren't big meat eaters find space for the huge portions to chow down. There's food for every person that they will love. Since most have already described the delicious...More

I love Famous Dave's. I'm not a huge fan of BBQ food, but Famous Dave's hits the mark. I especially love their pulled pork. They have ribs, corn-on-the-cob, corn muffins, coleslaw, ribs, etc. The service has always been excellent and the prices are fair.

I am extremely disappointed in this place. We visited on a Wednesday evening. First of all we ordered veggie nachos. The waitress, asked if we are ok with pork in our beans. She was kind enough to highlight that there were large chunks of pork...More

I've been to this place numerous times. It is almost within walking distance from my home. Since I go there a lot, I have eaten lots of different things that are on the menu. Great place for BBQ (beef or pork) as well as burgers....More

I stopped here on my way home from work. Late dinner but the server (Amber) was very polite. I ordered my hamburger well done but it came out pink in the middle. It was ok. Not many people there. Good place.

We simply love this restaurant. Number one, its in walking distance from our home. The "Minnesota hunting, fishing motif" is so reminiscent of a simpler time. And, oh-by-the-way, the food and service are both outstanding. The "Feast" meals are just great to order if you...More

We've found FD's to be reliably good service and terrific ribs; they converted our 9 YO into a ribs lover! Typical range of BBQ offerings with good variety of sauces to top them.
