The restaurant was very quiet for lunch toady. The atmosphere is clean and pleasant and looks very country BBQ. The music was blues and very enjoyable. Server was great, full of wonderful suggestions, and the food came out fast and hot. I had a tasty burnt end platter with delicious mac and cheese and a very good corn muffin. Prices... More

I came to Famous Dave's for the first time, lured in by a Final Four basketball special. You had your choice of St. Louis ribs, rib tips and chicken wings and boneless wings. I settled on the ribs and rib tips, served with fries. Baby backs get all the hype, but I prefer St. Louis ribs. They aren't as meaty... More

We enjoy BBQ! Famous Dave did not disappoint. Two of our group had chicken plates and were very pleased. One had beef and was pleased. I had a GREAT hot link! I used their very hottest hot sauce to give it an extra kick and I was not disappointed with the nice bite it gave. Insider tip - if you... More

A large group of us went to Famous Dave's, children and adults, and we couldn't have picked a better place. The waitress was attentive to each one of us. The food was plentiful and absolutely delicious. The dining room spacious and attractive. I had the sassy brisket salad and a cup of chicken and wild rice soup. The brisket was... More

We had a Gift Card for Famous Dave's for a while but we are particular about our BBQ, but finally decided to give it a try. First everyone was very friendly there and we were sat right away on a Friday Night at Dinner hour. Additionally, all the food was delivered quickly and tasted great! We loved the fact that... More

We like the BBQ here. I always get a variety. Love the cornbread muffins and the burnt ends. Always very friendly service. And we love the decorations.

This review is for Famous Dave's Tuesday family specials only! My family of 5 dined on Tuesday night at Famous Dave's. What makes Tuesday night so special? The restaurant, part of the Eagle Blvd sprawl, offers a platter of BBQ meats and sides designed to feed 2 to 3 people for only about $24. What you get: ribs, brisket, chicken,... More

So many places in the area are closing, I feel for Famous Dave's trying to compete with all the new places around. On the plus side, it wasn't very busy and the service was good. We hadn't eaten here in a while and found some new items. We tried these rib bite things that were very good and nicely seasoned.... More
