We usually dine in, but this time we did a "Take Out". The food was the same and we did a platter for two with extra corn muffins. The brisket and beans were delicious.

As long as they've been open Famous Daves has served very good BBQ in a nice casual environment. The service is prompt and courteous and we never feel rushed.If you're looking for quality BBQ at a reasonable price, this is a good choice.

A very popular barbecue restaurant in the center of Woodbury. The ribs can be very messy, but no need to worry as the restaurant will provide plenty of napkins for you. The ribs are obviously the core of their menu, but they also offer delicious...More
