Brought the family out to eat on the weekend. Was pretty busy but got set pretty fast. The food here is great with a wide selection. Service was very good. We have eaten here several times. Never a disappointing stop.

We eat here for lunch quite a bit. The 7.77 specials are great. Every time we have eaten here in the last month, Kourtney was our waitress and took excellent care of us. She is one of the best servers we have ever had. She...More

Service was attentive, food is typical food chain barbecue but none the less tasty. I love Dave's ribs, slow cooked BBQ sauce. The meat combo or the famous dustbin lid, I had to make two visits on this trip.

I would never willingly go back to Dave's unless it was the only place in town to eat. Like most chains, it has a nice decor and acceptable service and overpraises the quality of food. They also charge like they have good food - but...More

If you don't mind BBQ sauce under your fingernails, their ribs are very tasty. I do the baked chicken dinner with broccoli and a grilled pineapple spear: healthier and less messy. Service almost always good and a covered outside area to enjoy.

What delicious treat to have real barbeque at Famous Dave's. I recommend the garbage can lid since it gives you all the variety. The pulled pork or ribs go best their original sauce too. Located out by the Shoppes of Grand Prairie
