I've eaten at Famous Dave's all over the US. I find them to usually be consistent and good. I've tried this particular restaurant three times now and it is consistently bad. It is the worst of probably near 20 I've eaten at. Someone else needs...More

Excellent experience for dinner. We had the Wednesday special 1/2 slab ribs for $13. Food was excellent, service was excellent, very filling and a good deal.

Famous Daves food is consistent. The place can get noisy. I like the brisket. The staff is generally friendly. The food is usually quick, but large groups can present a challenge. Much better than most chain food.

Tasty bbq sandwich called the manhandler. Had french fries as a side. Several great bbq sauces on the table to choose from. Great service and the price was pretty good. If you're looking for bbq then try this place, I think you'll enjoy it.

Slow paced meal with limited service. Students are gone on break and there was little business that night. Food was delivered we didn't order. Right food finally came. Did enjoy the food we ordered.

We lost our Famous Dave's in Topeka because of poor management. Recently while visiting Manhattan, I wanted the sweet water catfish fingers. The manager at this Famous Dave's in Manhattan must be hitting all the marks because the host was very polite and friendly, our...More
