My family loves BBQ, but there is always a few that do not. This place accommodates all of the pickiest eaters. The food is always good and so is the service. Check out the menu online.

I had a Manhandler sandwich yum just right with not to much sauce. And a side of wedges fries and a drink. Waitress was great and fast impressive décor and location near our motel.

After 15 years in Memphis, we know barbeque. This is a high priced, poor imitation. Greasy, salty, dry, and chewy. Even the corn muffins are prepackaged. The only good thing about the experience was the selection of tasty sauces on each table. If you are looking for authentic barbeque, you'll leave disappointed.

We've been here before. It is always very good. The feast for 2 feeds all four of us. The brisket is by far the best, ribs next then the chicken. Disappointed in the mac and cheese, it was watery and flavorless. Apples and corn bread were good. Potato wedges were also good. I make all of these meats myself at... More

Normally I don't like catfish because it's dry, but I had a two meat meal which included catfish. Surprised that it was crispy on the outside and moist inside, I liked it. I have eaten there many times and on the first name basis with a couple of the servers. Overall, I rate Famous Dave's as a good place to... More
