There has never been a trip to Famous Daves and have been disappointed. It is great food, great atmosphere, and quite a great value. I am a part of the "DaveNation".

I had a lunch with friends, right before lunchtime. We had the whole place to ourselves. I selected the combo that's available for lunch, with two different meats for just under $10. Chopped pork, and barbecued chicken, with one side, a whoppin' big stuffed baked potato, which was a slight up-charge. I forgot to specify a breast, and had to... More

After a rough work week my wife and I decided dinner out would be great. Our favorite BBQ place is Famous Dave's. We weren't disappointed. The Georgia Pork Sandwich, Memphis style tasted great along with some spicy mac and cheese. My wife as always enjoyed her half rack of ribs. I really enjoyed the blues playing in the background and... More

Visit Famous Dave's in Bolingbrook on a Wednesday for a great deal on craft beer, $1.00 per glass. Plus, yesterday we also got 6 additional ribs for $6.00. And the beer and ribs tasted wonderful & were served by a nice and very competent server.

have eaten here 3 times and the food has always been on the luke warm side... I get brisket or ribs. The one in Oswego is better food, but out of the way.

For a Friday night, this location was not crowded at all. We received our food and drinks relatively quickly. We ordered the feast for 2 & the food was very good. I think I licked my fingers twice! Lol! (I try not to do that in public) but could not help myself! Our waiter Santiago was very, very nice. If... More

I've been to many different Famous Dave's from Eau Claire and Madison, Wisconsin to Rochester and Stillwater, Minnesota, and even out in South Dakota, but this was definitely one of my favorites. They had numerous big screen TVs (it was a Saturday after all, so we had to sit up close at the bar!). I usually get the typical beef... More

Lunch menu has the same great food with smaller portions. Nice atmosphere and nice spacing between the tables. Fast and good service and they didn't rush us out when we wanted to stay and talk.

We love their pulled pork sandwiches and country chicken dinner. Service is prompt and friendly. Also have a nice outdoor area.
