The food is always amazing! Sometimes it’s hard to get in and out in an hour over the lunch hour, but if you let them know you are crunched for time, they’re usually able to accommodate! Friendly service too!

We stopt with a bus load. Limited menu of three items. I had brisket, good with one side. Service great. Seperate checks for 50 people!

The food was delicious. We ordered off the lunch menu on a Saturday and it was the perfect amount to leave room for the delicious Bread Pudding! And the waitstaff is wonderful and friendly!

My first visit to a Famous Dave's, but won't be the last. Outstanding 2 meat lunch special, country chicken and pork. Very friendly wait staff. If you are staying in or around Sioux City, definitely visit there.

Had an anniversary party with about 30 people. The servers were good about refilling drinks and checking on us. A dish of coke slaw had a bristle from a cleaning brush in it and that was promptly replaced and the waitress apologized for it. The...More

This is a chain restaurant so nothing unique about it but they know their BBQ. Probably the closest restaurant off property from Hard Rock. Quick & friendly service. Never was too busy when I went in.
