The place is closed! Need I say more? Your website recommended it; I called and made reservations to someone somewhere at the number given, and when we arrived it was out of business. Very disappointing not only that someone identifying themselves as Famous Dave's took the reservation but also that Open Table gave erroneous information.

Our waitress, Marie, was excellent. However, our meat was tough and very disappointing. Marie even brought us a second batch of brisket but it was just as tough. My rib tips were pretty tender but the chopped pork was also not good. The side dishes were excellent. And so was the cornbread muffin. But we came for the meat. We won’t return.

We had a party of 7 people, my burger (manhandler) was cooked perfectly and tasted good, the ribs in the Dave's sampler platter were a bit dry and grisly and the catfish was dry, a person who had the brisket complained it was too fatty, while the pulled pork drew raves. Overall people thought famous dave's oversells the quality of their food - overall rating from our group was fair to middlin' Service was excellent.

We were taken aback at the lack of customers when we arrived, as we've been at other Famous Dave's that were packed. We didn't need reservations at all. After we waited about 25 minutes for fresh brewed decaf coffee and about 1/2 hour for our food in an uncrowded restaurant, we decided that must be why it didn't have more customers. Their food was very good as expected and our server couldn't have been more pleasant. But she was hard to find sometimes to ask for something. I'm guessing this particular location may have a management issue. I'd still recommend it for the food if you have time to wait.

We had the Feast. Food was excellent. We hit it late afternoon or probably would have been noisy. Music, as always everywhere, too loud. Will definitely be back.

The food was horrible and not edible. The ribs must have been cooked last year and reheated. Awful.
Parking lot was empty. Should have taken that as a sign.

We enjoyed an excellent lunch at Dave's following a morning graduation. The setting is fun, casual, and comfortable. Everyone found something they loved on the menu and the server for our large group was absolutely outstanding. We were able to make a reservation and that was a comfort on a busy day in Fort Collins. We are grateful to everyone at Dave's for providing a memorable meal for our extended family. Thank you!
