Famous dave's is NEVER a disappointment. Portions are large enough to enjoy them a '2nd day'. Just wish my favorite desert, bread pudding, ('gold standard for anyone else's) wasn't so expensive....how to choose? ribs?? vs bread pudding'?? then I saw that the portion size was smaller than I remembered, so glad I didn't order it

A friend of mine and I had lunch at Famous Dave's-Roseville. We arrived at 1100 hrs and placed our order at the counter attended by some very friendly people. I ordered the Rib N Rib combo and my friend had the country style chicken. Orders were served at the table by a very friendly server followed by several visits thereafter... More

I always get their beef brisket, so I can't comment on other items, though people I go with always seem to like what they order. I love the beef brisket and rich and sassy sauce. Good baked beans, typical potato salad, but good. Wait staff is nice, though they do want to tell you the "Famous Dave story" or "have... More

I enjoy Famous Dave's, "blacken tips". What a great idea, to serve some of the most flavorable pieces of meat. I do not enjoy the walk up and order, then wait for the food to be delivered, must it is what is at this store. All menu items are good to very good.

I have been here a couple of times for dinner and always enjoy the BBQ. They do a KC style BBQ which is one of my favorites. I was disappointed they no longer have the wild rice soup on the menu anymore but I guess I will survive. This is a order at the counter and they bring your food... More

I've had Dave's several times at a Rib Cookoff in Sparks, NV so I was really looking forward to having dinner here. Yum, yum, and yum! Large portions and great food. Only disappointment was I was unable to eat at the restaurant since a large group of adults and children arrived right before I did. They had a take out... More

Yummy and falls of the bone type of ribs. :D We love going here and you don't have to worry about service because you wait for you food, they bring it to you and you get your... More

Every time we go to Minnesota we visit Famous Dave's. This time I had the chicken barbecue sandwich, and others in my party had the ribs, the pulled pork, and the brisket. All come with a choice of a side. The fries are great! Love this place!

Yes it is a chain but the food in this particular Dave's is very consistent. Ribs are always good. Love the jalapeno mac and cheese. Pulled pork and Brisket is also very good. Not fond of their steak fries. I prefer this style Dave's over the sit down restaurants. Order at the counter and they deliver the food to you.... More
