I went to Famous Daves in Peoria, which is right across from The Cheesecake Factory and ordered Pull Pork take out for the family The price was outrageous and the Pork was cut in blocked instead of being pulled apart. It was a waste of time and trouble to go 20 miles each way to get a bad meal. It... More

We popped in here for dinner on arrival from the airport It was very welcoming and we were quickly seated. Ordering was quick and the food delivered shortly after. There was a lot on offer of average quality and as is the norm far too much. It was value for money but not sure I'd go back.

If you enjoy BBQ this place has a Heavenly smell when you first enter. Ribs are great and as are the sides served with your meal. Tasted the brisket and it was a little dry for my taste.

The focus is, of course, on barbeques. We had briskets, ribs, sausages and sides. Impressively, all three of us ate our entire plate. Now and then, we have found a barbeque joint here or there around the country, but Famous Dave's is reliable and pleasurable, from the east coast to the west coast. Service is usually competent although rarely outstanding,... More

Went here early on a Saturday night, 5:30pm., so that we could catch dinner and a movie. Very surprised that we were seated right away. We started out with house margaritas, that were fantastic, and huge- the size of 2 margaritas together. For the appetizer we had the Burnt Ends: cubes of beef cut from perfectly roasted beef ribs, and... More

First visit was great, loved the stuffed potato. Server was good. 2nd n 3rd visit service was horrible and food wasn't as good. Chips they give as appetizer, cold even. Won't be back.

It was Saturday night and a 40 minute wait at Cheesecake. So we decided to pop in here instead. I had BQ Chicken and my wife had Fried Cod with Fries. We both enjoyed our meal and the service was very good.
