Dave's is getting a little overgrown and starting to feel like a TGIF or Appleby's, but the food has stayed consistantly good. The fast pace is a bit annoying, but you will get good BBQ.

Went first time, meat was dried out. Just not tastey. Went there a month or so later thought I would give them another chance. Still wasn't that great. Don't think I would go back there again. They never seem to be real busy every time I drive by it either. Customer service was great though.

I love Famous Daves and my family does too. The one here in Minneapolis is consistent with the others. The food is good and great portions. The staff is nice too!

My wife and two adult sons were there last Friday and were impressed with the service, including the various waiters and other employees we had contact with. We ordered the Family Feast for four and ended up taking quite a bit home - it truly is a feast and could easily serve 6 adults!

The atmosphere was great, floor area and restrooms were clean and the waiter was there every 5 minutes checking to see if we needed anything.

We will definitely be going back, hopefully when the band is playing!

The only knock is a lack of nearby parking. There is a parking ramp next door but it cost us $9 for a <3 hour stay.

The only thing better than Famous Dave's barbecue is Famous Dave's barbecue and live music. This is a great blues club and a fun place to get together with friends. You MUST try the Sunday brunch. Awesome!
