Famous Dave's is some of the best Kansas City barbeque around. Their meal prices are reasonable and you get a hefty portion. We love that they have several specialty sauces.

My wife and I recently visited Famous Daves while in KC and had a great experience. Food began with a few homemade BBQ chips and some burnt ends and I ordered a meat combo for lunch with brisket and ribs along with Daves Mac and cheese. Really enjoyed our food and would recommend to anyone in the area

While on a business trip a couple of us went near the Hotel to eat some BBQ. I had never been to Famous Dave's and wanted to give it a try. We were greeted as soon as we walked in the door and taken straight back to a booth. Our waitress was quickly at the table and answered any of... More

The BBQ wasn't anything to get excited about, but the portions were really generous for the price and the service was quick and friendly. Strong 3 stars.

Stopped here for a quick lunch. Was seated immediately. The service was prompt and friendly. I had the brisket sandwich and fries. It was great particularly with the Devil Spit sauce. Always worth a stop.

Everything here is amazing from the meat to the beans. The baked beans are amazing. You can't go wrong with the ribs, chicken, shredded pork, or sausage. Yummy! If you want a little bit of everything order the sampler.
