It was what you expect from Famous Dave's. Decent food, decent service. It wasn't very busy when we were there so we got in and out fast. Our waiter was a little different it was like he was there when you didn't need anything but gone when you did. Oh well, I didn't need that extra drink!

Great place to eat, of course it is part of a chain restaurant, but nonetheless. The food and service were great, and a great place for families to visit.

Clean and pleasant with a friendly server this chain outlet was a de met place for dinner after a very long day of travel. We were interested in filling up , not fine dining and this hit the spot. My burger was very big and nicely cooked, nothing artisanal and had 'frozen', not fresh cut fries. They were nothing to... More

My cousin and I decided to try Famous Dave's as he had a hankering for ribs. We saw Famous Dave's advertised on the Highway sign and started our search. Thanks to a lady sitting on a bench in the mall, we were able to find the restaurant and went on in. We were seated and the waitress came over and... More

I know that other parts of the USA brag on their BBQ meals, but when in Grand Junction, which is where we live, there is none better than Famous Dave's. We travel a lot and have eaten BBQ in a lot of different places and we are usually disappointed when comparing others to Famous Dave's. Friendly staff, decent sized meals... More

This is one of the places that we ate at in Grand Junction, We got the BBQ Feast for 2 and we were able to have 3 people on it and still have leftovers. The brisket, ribs, chicken, corn on the cob, beans, fries, and corn bread muffins were great.

This was by far the best Famous Dave's experience I've had. The wings that I ordered were slightly crispy, and moist. Perfection. The corn muffins... It's worth the trip just for those.

Thank jnash14
