Famous Dave's is a great place to go for anything BBQ from ribs to pulled pork sandwiches to BBQ salads. They give you plenty of food, never leave hungry. Love the spicy pickles and the mac and cheese with a kick.

I've been at more than a half dozen, and never seen or known anything about a Happy Hour, even when I've been there at late afternoon. I'm sure the answer is "No".
