Our authentic BBQ starts in a live-wood smoker stoked with genuine hickory logs. Our pitmasters hand-rub the meats with a custom blend of spices and cook for hours to extract the natural flavors. We source the highest quality meats and trim them up like we’re in a competition and hand-rub them with the freshest seasonings available to create mouthwatering experiences! In addition to our BBQ and grilled meats, our menu features a selection of salads, sandwiches, side items, and made-from-scratch desserts.

Very well done barbecue, fun food, and more. Very spacious seating in a modern decor. Just watch out for the calories.

Very good on all points. I would recommend friends who are looking for BBQ in or near Alameda.
Host forgot to acknowledge our reservation so we were not credited with our patronage.

Late night dinner for 14 people at Famous Dave's was a bit rushed but overall we all rated it a good level of food, presentations, ambiance with a very good level for our waiter. BBQ ribs, sandwiches, and burgers were the choices we made and all were at the good level.

The food was great, but our hostess attempted to seat 6 people around 2 round tables, which was awkward. We ended up in a booth that fit the 6 of us snugly. Being that we had a reservation, I was a little surprised that the table was not ready for us when we arrived. It felt very thrown together. Our server was nice, but wasn’t as attentive as we would have liked. I understand it was Father’s Day so it was kind of expected.

Very loud, so no intimate evenings will be found here. Food was great. Service was great. We'll be back!

Great service. Great sauces. Attractive dining room with great TVs. But. Terrible beer selection, terrible corn bread muffin, dry brisket and when the food arrived, everything was a different temperature. Piping hot beans, barely warm brisket, cold mashed potatoes. I was really looking forward to this but won’t be back. There are too many better options.
