Not sure of the best way to get to one. Personally, the best way is to go in the opposite direction and get as FAR AWAY as possible. Truly an awful excuse for a restaurant.

Here's the best summary of it I've seen.

The guy ordered one dish, didn't like it (it does sound bad), and that makes it the worst bar-b-que restaurant on the planet? Sheesh.

Famous Dave's is a chain. As such its somewhat middle of the road. But overall I think its pretty good bar-b-que. Not as good as some of the local places we used to go in Houston nor as some of the local places here, but better than many I've been to.

While Famous Dave's is not the best BBQ in the world, it certainly isn't the worst. Their baby back ribs are usually very good.

Consider trying the new(ish) Road Kill Grill: http://www.eatinglv.com/2012/06/guy-fieri-invents-a-restaurant/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+EatingLasVegas+%28Eating+Las+Vegas%29

Famous Daves, as mentioned, is a fairly reliable national chain. Ellis Island, particularly if you sit outside will be more of an "experience".

Incidentally, I've found John Curtas' reviews to be generally accurate (or at least we have similar tastes) so I'd certainly recommend using the search function on his site to get an idea of what else is available.

Been to Famous Dave a couple times. 1st they give you a six pack of Sauces for you to use as you please. Some people love sucking on the bones and cartalige. Hence the rib tips. THese peole did not know what they were ordering, nor did they ask their server for suggestions. They apparently missed the sauces in front of them on their table and did not like what they got. Their St Louse ribs and baby backs are just fine. Like was said earlier it's a chain. I'd eat there again.

Famous Daves, as mentioned above is a chain, Baby back ribs are good, but for a true/real "locals" Las Vegas experience, walk over to Ellis Island, and request a table outside at their BBQ restaurant and watch the ribs cook & smoke nearby, while you eat! Awesome BBQ ribs at Awesome prices! If you have time, pick up a copy of The 2012 American Casino Guide (Ebay), and you will get a Buy One Get One Free dinner at Ellis Island as well as four (4) free drinks at the bar! which will save you $$$$$ ( plus many other coupons)..Prepare for a short wait at the BBQ restaurant at Ellis Island , well worth it! Enjoy!
