You were infamous in your own mind, Dave! Your service sucked, the food was average and you were overpriced... This location is apparently where Jimmy Hoffa was buried, because it has been cursed for some time.. Applebys, Famous Daves, what's next?

I've been here a few times and while the portions are generous, the prices are very high, and service is spotty at best. I've had good and not so good food there. Have even found bones in the bbq chicken salad in the past.

The brisket falls apart and is so incredibly flavorful! The corn muffins are sweet and moist. I had broccoli on the side and was so happy to see it not floating in butter! The hot links are great, as is the tri-tip.

Good place to go with good food and excellent service. They are really into customer service and pleasing the customer. Reasonable prices.

Who gives me that needs to be cut dull knives. Not steak knives. Tough to cut. They got confused with the orders. They put out about five potato chips. For five people. My husband had ribs and he was very disappointed. Sauces were good.
