Since Famous Dave's near home has closed, I've had a hankering for good BBQ. Famous Dave's never disappoints! We had the opportunity to have dinner with my daughter and new son-in-law before back to California. Great place for BBQ!

They had the food set up buffet style; BBQ: chicken, ribs, pulled pork and beef; coleslaw and corn bread. Drinks were water, iced tea and lemonade. Desert was a Choco/ mocha brownie. Before serving several... More

I love this place. We always order the feast which includes a little bit of everything. The ribs, brisket, and corn muffin are my favorites, but everything is really good. I don't mind driving 25 minutes to this place, the only con is that i always end up having too much food :p

We visit here as a party of 13. We call ahead and tell them we are coming and they say it's only a 10 min wait. When we arrive they then are shocked it's a party of 13 and that it would be a 45 min wait. We were ok with that. But the fact the staff did nothing but... More

I ordered the meat combo which came with your choice of two of their meats. The brisket was delicious however the portion consisted of only 4 small strips of meat which I thought was very small. Their chips was very good too and they had happy hour from 4 to 6 pm daily.Don't Nickle and Dime your customers, they will... More

Twenty minutes to get the drinks to our table. Another fifteen minutes to get our order, and another twenty minutes to get our food. The food was very good. We never saw our waiter again during or meal. Drinks never got refreshed or refilled. It took another thirty minutes to get or check after we were done eating. Three hours... More

The first sign should have been all the dirty tables but my sob said it had a good rep. It took us over 1/2 hour to even be approached by a server. We are just saying what a disaster it was. When the bartender/waiter did come to take our order he actually came back to our table to take our... More

This is our second time at Dave's and it is a fantastic lace to eat. We drove up from Portland for a visit and had such a great time at Dave's about 2 years ago, we decided to go again. The food is fantastic. The service is excellent. Many of the management stopped by to check to make sure all... More

Food was advertised, waitstaff went out of their way to make sure we were happy with meals. Restaurant was not busy, but we were seated away from others for quiet, privacy rather than crowded together for waiters' convenience.
