The food at this place was amazing. The meat on the ribs fell off the bone. The fries were the best I had tasted in a long time. Try the platter for 2. Staff were friendly and helpful

This is one of our favourite stops in Kalispell! The food is always great and so is the staff! They also offer take out and they sell their BBQ sauces and spices.

The meats are of quality and a good local BBQ spot in town. I prefer Famous Dave's to other BBQ I have tried in Kalispell.

Good flavor, quality meat. The service here is excellent, too. Fast service, quality food and large portions. Very fair prices!! I've tried a newer bbq place here in Kalispell and Famous Dave's is everyone's favorite.

Had a great time tonight at Famous Daves. The service was excellent and the food came very quickly. We got an assortment of BBQ that was all delicious. The cornbread muffins are awesome and the selection of beers is good as well. No complaints at all.

This is a chain and the food and atmosphere reflect it. I realize many locals like this place but I so not agree. The quality and taste and look of the food is average to below average. It is mass produced and mediocre to poor. Staff seems to be stressed and overworked with the crowds that tend to flock here... More

Love the ribs but if you are watching the calories, the soup and salad or baked potato is always a good choice. Cornbread muffin is heaven.
