What delicious treat to have real barbeque at Famous Dave's. I recommend the garbage can lid since it gives you all the variety. The pulled pork or ribs go best their original sauce too. Located out by the Shoppes of Grand Prairie

I have always enjoyed Famous Dave's but this experience knocked the ball out of the park. This Famous Dave's is the best that I have been to in Tennessee, Ohio and Illinois. ALL of the meat (St. Louis and Baby Back Ribs and burnt ends) were tasty, plentiful and juicy. The service was also outstanding as Sacar was top notch... More

We arrived around 7:30pm, we order 3 Famous Margaritas and the Famous Dave's Nachos as an appetizer. Then a plate for 2- 3 with samples of the house barbecue specialty (chicken, pork, beef, corn , sweet bake beans, cole slow & corn muffins). The waitress was excellent, she let us enjoyed and at the same time she was making sure... More

We got the nachos as a appetizer (requesting no beans). Well there were beans on them, still don't know if there were beans in the chili (which the wait staff should have said something about if so) they use or if our order was incorrect. I ordered the potato soup and salad, my boyfriend ordered a burger. My salad had... More

I ordered a burnt ends sandwich dry with a side of green beans. The meat was still tender and so flavorful- I didn't need any sauce nor did I need the bun( which for me is a real surprise). The service was great as well!

Famous Dave's is conveniently located near the Candlewood Suites where our family group stayed for a wedding weekend. Good food. Great service from Secor.

Consistently good BBQ, moderate prices and decent service. I would recommend Dave's for anyone wanting some good food, and recommend the family feast - I prefer it upgraded with baby back ribs personally.

After a 10 hour drive we opted to get a huge variety platter from this restaurant to feed the family. There were enough choices that everyone had something they liked, and we had sides and cornbread to round out the meal. Highly recommend this as a take-out choice, we ate well and had leftovers for lunch too!

If you like BBQ then you are gonna like this place. Very casual décor and great service combined with great food. My wife and I usually get the feast for two and I am not sure that we have ever ate everything. There is just too much food. One of the things I like best is the fact that you... More
