My Marine Vet nephew and I went there when we were in Denver for Cinco de Mayo...delicious barbeque, excellent drinks, great atmosphere, attentive service...the place was packed, yet we were in and ready to order quickly...lots of families and couples, and a few singles at the bar...we took extras back to hotel and munched them up.

We visited on our trip to Denver.
The service was amazing and offered different selections, and what was worth trying from the menu. They have a large selection of American BBQ. Large servings at a good price.

Even though they were quite busy, service was relatively fast and waiter was very helpful and friendly. My husband is gluten free. They brought out a notebook listing all the foods and possible allergies. We appreciated this service. The food was great and we definitely would go back again.

The prices here are outrageous and the food is really not that good the sides are very small and Bland tasting specially the so-called creamy macaroni and cheese. I wish I would have bought my Sweet Baby Ray's to help it taste a little more flavorful. French fries should be served hot not lukewarm. If you truly want to try excellent BBQ go to Jim & Nicks there's one located in Northfield and their mac and cheese will definitely knock your socks off. I only rate them two stars one for the strawberry lemonade and the customer service Angel provided other than that I wouldn't waste my money there

Famous Dave's in any city - it is consistently great! Our guests were first time visitors to Famous Dave's and are now hooked! The ribs are always amazing, as well as the Burnt Ends appetizer. The corn bread muffins are always a favorite. The brisket was excellent! The only Kentucky rib ends were just okay. The staff was friendly and service was excellent. We will return to this location.
