I have been to other locations of Famous Dave's and this one was similar to those. The shredded onion rings are great. The kids meals were very generous size. All of our food arrived as ordered and hot.

This location is more sports bar than a lot of the other Famous Dave's around. The bar seating offers the best views if you are here for a game. The food should satisfy any carnivore.

Visited the Famous Dave's on the main strip for a craving. Caught the staff on a slow day, so the service was great. Food, as always, filled my need for BBQ. Love the cornbread muffins.

Large portions, reasonable prices for the amount of food, but not a light or quick meal. Solid BBQ fare. Our waiter, running the place by himself on a windy cool May day, was excellent; pleasant to talk to, knowledgeable about the area, and helpful with...More

We've ate there in the past and the food was fine, this time the Food was not good! High price with low quality! Fries were not done, beef brisket was blah...maybe it's better during peak season.

I wish we could do increments in halves on here becuase average seems like a cheap shot. I wouldn't say it was very good but it deserves at least a 3.5. The fact they have paper towels mounted to the table should tell you something....More

We ordered carry out ribs and a salad. The order was ready in about 10 minutes. The food was great. The salad had the dressing on the side so it travelled well. The ribs were very good. They have extra sauce packets near the entrance...More

Famous Dave's has a full bar and there are many options for anyone that does not want alcohol. The prices were in line with any other restaurant that I have visited throughout the country.
IS it "General Practice" to hide burnt-over-cooked meats under other meats? Our(Call-in) order of Rib Tips and Burnt ends on Sunday 7-20, was full of disgusting over-cooked meat, most stores throw away. I was never more disappointed in Famous Dave's as I was last week. If this is "general practice"? I couldn't see you doing this to sit-down customers who's, visual inspection of the product is on-the-spot. I regret I didn't tale my order back. I regret I didn't eat-in. I regret my order-PERIOD!
