Ever since Red Hot and Blue left Frederick, I have yearned for a good BBQ restaurant and though some have come and gone, Famous Dave's was a welcome sight. Great Pulled Pork/Brisket combo and great seasonings. On weekends, come early. The lines form quickly.

It's good barbecue. We really love the Burnt Ends. Today I had two of my personal favorites.. Brisket and hot links. Yum! Pair it with grilled pineapple slices and Cole slaw and add a cornbread muffin and life is good.

When we walked through the front door I would have given you 20 to 1 odds that I would not be eating tacos but to my amazement that's what I ended up ordering and what I will surely be ordering again. They were GREAT !...More

One of the many Famous Dave's I've been to, and worth a stop in. The BBQ is good, and they have a good selection on the menu for anyone.

Been there a number of times, now, both for dinner and for lunch. When it's good, it's very, very good. When it's bad it's horrid. There for lunch the other day. At the table for four, there were orders of ribs and of pulled pork....More

I had two meat brisket and my wife had the catfish. Both tasted great. The service was good and the experience was one that I wouldn't mind doing again. My only complaint was that the bathrooms needed some serious attention

Stopped with my colleague for a lunch. Nice place decorated to the liking of people who loves outdoors. Food was okay too. Recommended stop for a food and beer when you coming back home from a fishing trip.
