Decent barbecue and consistent on what you get. It is by no means Willards in Chantilly but will do in a pinch.

My team catered famous Dave's in for lunch and it was excellent. The brisket and pulled pork were exceptional and as always, the coleslaw was amazing. I would definitely recommend for a good catering option.

Famous Dave's used to be one of my favorite barbeque restaurants but since the menu changed, I seldom go there! They used to have drunken apples, generous portions and the selection was larger! The current menu is limited and portions are smaller. Incidently, for a...More
