I typically am not a fan of "chain" restaurant's. Famous Dave's is a rare exception. They do a really good job on their BBQ and I love their side dishes. My only wish is that the side dishes were larger portions.

Roasted chicken is my favorite. Plus, all I really want is the cornbread muffin. That and a diet coke and I am happy here...all the rest is fluff! Great service and tasty food!

We tried out Famous Dave's BBQ for dinner while on a business trip. Famous Dave's has the best BBQ I've tried hands down. The food is great. Service is fantastic. I was never left waiting for a refill. I will be back!
