This was my favorite meal that I ate during our recent trip to Minnesota! Famous Dave's was awesome. I had the pulled pork sandwich with sides of cornbread and dirty rice. I ate everything on my plate, which is unusual for me. It was awesome!...More

Recently bought take off for 7 hungry people. We had a variety of things - all good. We have come back many times and each time, we liked it. Good for a range of ages and a range of tastes.

Food was a bit disappointing. The meats had Ok flavour but they wasn't close to what we expected. Unfortunately the quality wasn't good enough.

I am from the South and we love our BBQ. Dave's ribs, chopped pork and everything else was amazingly good and the price was right! Their sauces were all great as well and the hot sauce was to die for!!

Very good food, children friendly, good variety of items on the menu and "BBQ" decor !!! We eat here every time we go to Minneapolis. This location had slower service than we are used to. Everything else was in keeping with the other locations.
