“I hadn't been there since they initially opened, now I know why.”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

Stopped at Famous Dave's in Waukesha for lunch on August 5, 2013. They weren't terribly busy, which was nice. My co-worker got a barbecue pork sandwich, which he said was good. I got the grilled chicken breast sandwich, which was okay, nothing to write home about, and over priced at $10.

Service was fine.

For the price, Culver's has a much better chicken sandwich.
I think we were paying for the "atmosphere" (if you can say that), but I don't think I'd be back unless forced to.

We really enjoy the St. Louis style ribs, rib tips and brisket. The waitstaff are always friendly and good.

“Excellent BBQ, and service”
Reviewed 26 June 2013 via mobile

Never been to a Famous Dave's.
The food was superb!
I have eaten BBQ all over the USA and what is considered BBQ in many countries around the world.
This is an excellent restaurant, the staff, the setting, and the food.
It is excellent BBQ, and all the better given it is made in WI, not known as a BBQ state.
'Nuff said!
