We visited this location while on a family trip to Minnesota. Our kids all love Famous Dave's food, so we went out of our way to find this location since the one in the mall closed. What we didn't know was that this location is...More

Great cole slaw, brisket and pork. Nice atmosphere and moderate pricing. Add a little brew to make it a perfect meal.

Those were honestly some of the best ribs I've ever had. Everything else was fantastic too- the chicken, the brisket, fries, beans, coleslaw- all just absolutely fantastic.

Had a late lunch here and was very good. Server was friendly and attentive. We tried both the brisket and the chicken and they were both tasty. Prices are very reasonable. Certainly worth a stop.

If you're a meat-a-terian (yes, I made that up) ... then this is the place for you. Awesome barbecued meats galore. The smell and decor will make you salivate and want to dive in. Loved the place. Will return for sure.

Large variety of choices, but maybe focusing on fewer options would provide better quality. And for >$20 for brunch, I appreciate quality! Mimosas and Blood Mary's for $3 a perk. The live music was a big plus!
