One of the many Famous Dave's I've been to, and worth a stop in. The BBQ is good, and they have a good selection on the menu for anyone.

Stopped with my colleague for a lunch. Nice place decorated to the liking of people who loves outdoors. Food was okay too. Recommended stop for a food and beer when you coming back home from a fishing trip.

This was going to be my first visit but my cousin assured me that the food is always good and boy was she right. We had the "BBQ Feast". It was delicious!!! #tryallthesauces.
