Came here for dinner and had high expectations hearing that this place makes great bbq. Apparently not. Had beef brisket and also a side of catfish. Let's start with the good, the catfish and Wilbur beans were delicious, would have it again. The beef brisket was subpar and didn't taste smoked at all, in fact it tasted more like roast... More

Good BBQ, Great staff and an overall enjoyable experience. We have eaten here before and I find the BBQ is very good. They have a line up of different sauces you can use and they are very good. The staff are attentive and offer excellent hospitality. Our family will definitely return again.

We live Famous Dave's. This has been a family favorite sincerely it moved in. They even catered or son's graduation from college. We've never had a bad meal or a bad time here. In fact, I think someone in the family has eaten each item on the menu. Eight thumbs up.

We bend of this famous Dave's several times, and each time we've said why don't we come back? Seems to be disorganized and the food is subpar for most famous Dave's

This resturant has small portion sizes and if you like to eat BBQ you will leave there with less money and still hungry. This place makes Chinese food look filling. The food is typical BBQ, but they try to fill you up on bread and make the plates look bigger by stacking the BBQ on bread. The best deal is... More
