Went to lunch with my colleague. Had their ribs & it was excellent. It was rather quiet at lunch time, though it was a Monday. Good place for anyday food.

The Good: Choice of BBQ sauces at the table. The Bad: Our BBQ lunches took 30 minutes to deliver, then the food was just horrible. The Ugly: I ordered beef brisket which was full of fat, pretty much inedible except for a couple of bites. Service was so slow (30 mins. for BBQ) that by the time our party got... More

Great atmosphere. Sides are terrific. Collard greens were outstanding. Cedar plank salmon was excellent. Once again ribs were chewy; not juicy or tender--but flavorful. Not the southern style juicy tender falling off the bone kind that we love.

I don't normally review chain restaurants as they are typically run of the mill. But the staff here is worth the stop. I sat in the bar as it was playoff baseball time and they offer TV's. The bartender and waitstaff was just a blast to have dinner with. Engaging, not only with me, but the others that were in... More

We went to Famous Dave's for the first time. Great BBQ. We tried 5 different meats. The Jalepeno Mac N Cheese was great. The french fries were wide cut fries and were great. The different sauces added variety to the meat.

I've been to a couple other Famous Dave's locations and enjoyed the meals, but the same could not be said for Fort Collins. Of 4 entrees ordered at the table, only 1 came out completely correct. Two had both sides wrong and 1 was missing cornbread. As a result, we had to eat on a staggered schedule and not all... More

Pretty good BBQ with a variety of sauces to suit your palate. You'll be glad they offer wet naps to wipe up!
