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.

Still old system of order at counter. Like new menu system (Woodbury) and servers better. Still great ribs and sides.

After hearing a lot of good things about the famous Dave’s franchise, we were very disappointed in the food. It definitely was not with the price of what we paid compared to other bbq places.

Our family celebrated Easter at Famous Dave’s and we enjoyed every minute. Our 3 grandsons loved the ribs as did their grandfather.! The food was plentiful and delicious. The waitstaff checked on us occasionally to see if we needed anything. Very enjoyable meal!

Wish they would take orders at tables and be like normal restaurant. Reservations through open table really don’t reserve you a table in there method.

Terrible. We didn't even end up staying for our meal because the staff was so rude to us when we arrived. This is not a full service restaurant. It is counter style and does not accommodate reservations made on open table. Not sure why they are on here!! We would have stayed to eat had the staff been welcoming and decent to us when we arrived but we took our business elsewhere.
