Always a Great stop when in Fargo (or any other place with a Famous Daves) -
Try the 4-bone naked, chicken / wild rice soup! Outstanding desserts - Family atmosphere... Thanks Dave Anderson for all you do for us...

“Hard to find better BBQ this far north!”
Reviewed 16 May 2012

After living in the deep south (TX, FL, AL and GA) for more than six years while in the military, I have eaten more than my fair share of tasty southern BBQ. Enough to know that there are as many different opinions as to what constitutes "really good BBQ" as there are kernels on a cob of corn. Unless you are willing to travel from St Louis to Savannah and all stops in between, it's going to be pretty tough to find better BBQ than Famous Dave's. I have eaten there at least a couple of dozen times in the last few years and the service is always fast, friendly and efficient. If you are looking for elegant surroundings with a maitre d' replacing a smudged wine glass, better try another venue. If you're looking for large portions of really tasty food in a casual atmosphere at great prices, you just might like this place! I have eaten at the buffet once, and shared a feast twice, but my favorite is the lunch special, two meat combo platter with ribs and pulled pork. (for less than 10 bucks) It comes with a half ear of corn, a corn bread muffin, and your choice of two sides. The cole slaw is great, the apples are wonderful, fries just ok, but the Wilbur Beans are awesome. There are FIVE different flavors of BBQ sauce at the table (all of which are fun to sample) and more "special" flavors offered by the servers. I always seem to end up choosing the house special that is just an incredibly delicious mix of smokey, sweet, and spicy. The ribs come clean down to the bone, (as does the chicken) and the pulled pork just kind of dissolves on your tongue. If all that still doesn't fill you up you just GOTTA try the bread pudding for dessert! WOW!

“Excellent food, service for the entire family.”
Reviewed 11 May 2012

I absolutely LOVE this place. Huge portions, small price and great tasting pork. Will never visit a city with Famous Dave's and not go there.
