Near the Interstate. Large parking lot. The deco theme is good ole time hunting. Kind and fast service. Our choice: brisket and spare ribs, both excellent and soup with salad. The soup was too salty for our taste.

Pulled in just before 5 and before I was finished with my beer my take out was ready and I was able to avoid traffic to get to the hotel

Good friendly service. Food isn't the best. The chips are like rock. Very family friendly! They're quite welcoming to children.

Great smokehouse - brisket ribs and wings were great. Crispy fries and good beans and slaw. Just a great meal and good value for $$$. Server was pleasant and friendly. Plan to use lots of paper towel and roll up your sleeves for a feast.

We eat at the Famous Dave's regulary here in Franklin, TN and love it. It was nice to find one right down from our hotel. The staff and manager at this Famous Dave's were super nice and we really loved talking to them.

Glad to find another of this chain! Chopped pork was very good and pineapple was excellent as usual. Great service which seems to be normal at these restaurants.

This place was amazing! It was my first time ever going. All I knew was I wanted ribs, and my man Don hooked me up! Great service, delicious food, and fabulous environment. I am definitely coming back!

I walked over from my hotel before bed for a cocktail. Bartender, drinks and atmosphere were all decent.

Took family to Famous Dave's for dinner on a Friday. The food is consistently good, flavorful and plentiful. Perfectly seasoned and tender - always a hit!!

We had the best meal here on our trip (28 days long) The platter for 2 was amazing, and could easily feed 3! We ate like champions! The server was a very nice young man, and kept us
