Stopped passing through.. Had the onion strings for appetizer which everyone enjoyed.. The Georgia Chopped Pork was the fav of everybody, followed by the brisket and ribs.. The catfish fingers were not good at all... Great selection of bbq sauces to accompany dinner 👍

I'm not sure what Dave's is supposed to be famous for but I can tell you it is not their baby back ribs. When you have to chew the meat off the ribs... that's not famous, that's terrible. My son had the St. Louis ribs...More

Did a late lunch(2pm) with a colleague. Due to the abundance of restaurants around, Dave's was empty. Our service was great and the food was good, especially for a slow period. I was pleased with the taste of the food and the quality, which sometimes...More

We rated Famous Dave's 4.5 stars. The spare ribs and BBQ sauce were a lip smackin' meal. We had the ribs, potato salad, corn on the cob, and corn muffins. The waiter was friendly and kept asking us if he could get us more iced...More

When traveling I always seek out Famous Dave's as it is my favorite chain Bar B Q restaurant. Always has ribs that suit my taste. My visit yesterday was may last. I've had service issues here, actually lack thereof, before. My visit occurred around 4...More

Ordered the riblets. Definitely one of the best meals I've ever had. Even the bones were tender. The corn muffin was moist and delicious. Didn't choke me like some cornbread items tend to do (and I didn't even butter it!). The jalapeno mac and cheese...More

Not much to say here - my mom and I visited and did not have a good experience. First of all, we were placed at a table next to a man who sounded like he was going to cough up a lung the entire dinner....More
