I love their barbecue. It's maybe the best I've ever had at a chain type restaurant. And plenty if it too.

Famous Daves food is consistent. The place can get noisy. I like the brisket. The staff is generally friendly. The food is usually quick, but large groups can present a challenge. Much better than most chain food.

Tasty bbq sandwich called the manhandler. Had french fries as a side. Several great bbq sauces on the table to choose from. Great service and the price was pretty good. If you're looking for bbq then try this place, I think you'll enjoy it.

Slow paced meal with limited service. Students are gone on break and there was little business that night. Food was delivered we didn't order. Right food finally came. Did enjoy the food we ordered.
