We ate there twice...first time we thought it was a bad experience/fluke ...so....we tried it again... with very similar experiences...food is greasy...very crowded..and service is poor...slow...staff seemed almost overwhelmed...don't believe we'll go back...all those folks must be 1st time customers...'cause surely there aren't many return customers..

Our family really enjoyed meeting at this restaurant for dinner while out of town for my granddaughter's gymnastics meet. We were all impressed at the wide variety of choices on the menu, as we had many different age groups eating. We all enjoyed our entrees! Very yummy and great service. Great family restaurant!

All of the sandwiches are very good and if you like spicy Devil's Spit is one of the top BBQ sauces I think are available. Good service food and atmosphere

My husband and I eat here often. He likes the ribs! They offer a wide variety of dishes: their feast; their regular BBQ dishes; salads and soups; their huge stuffed baked potato: or lower priced lunch menu. The bread pudding dessert is yummy! They also have a brownie, or a Sunday. The flavors are tasty!

It is pretty close to southern barbecue. The wings are awesome here as well as the ribs and side dishes, sweet potatoes, mac and cheese, fired okra, corn etc....

In town fishing for the weekend decided to try this place out for the first time. Don't have these in Spokane. Showed up at 8, and sign said they close at 9pm on Saturday nights. Odd for a BBQ joint with a bar area. BBQ was good but on the expensive side, typical for BBQ joints. Friend ordered a shot... More

Famous Dave's is one of your favorite places to each. We stop in each town we visit that has one. The food is plentiful, the sauces are great and the service is always good.
