“Addicted with their corn muffin”
Reviewed 6 October 2013 via mobile

Food is great. Service is good. Accessibility when you are in the area is good especially if you stay at the Kalahari. A very good alternative of hotel food also. Price is affordable. I got addicted with their corn muffin that I have to order another box to take home.

“If you have a chance -- go!!!”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

We;re familiar with Famous Dave's since we've eaten at the one in Branson..........oh, my, just great barbecue!! and this is coming from a former Memphian, where barbecue is king -- next to Elvis.
Try their ribs -- either the wet ones or the Memphis-style dry rubs -- just about like the Rendevouz in Memphis. Go hungry!!

“First time visit”
Reviewed 5 September 2013 via mobile

I had heard about Famous Dave's and was eager to try it. We visited during lunch time when they weren't too busy. The food was very good except for the ribs, they were very dry and the ends were very hard, very disappointed. Will visit again if we get the oppotunity and try something different in the meat category.

“Yummy barbecue”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

Ordered the meal for two and shared it with family of 5! It was the perfect amount and all tasted very good. It had ribs, chicken, brisket, corn, beans, slaw, muffins... The table had 6 different sauces to try, so we enjoyed each being able to put on the type/amount of sauce we wanted. Would go back here again.

“Great new location”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

We visited the Famous Dave's out near the outlet mall. The interior of this place was very well done with classic Famous Dave's knick knacks. The food here was great. If you've eaten at a Famous Dave's before, this is a must see to see what they can do with a two story space. If you haven't visited a Famous Dave's you are in for a really nice experience and great bbq food.
