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.

Although I made my reservation through OpenTable days in advance and confirmed via the email system the day prior, the restaurant did not have record of my reservation and did not have a table available for us in the main dining area. We agreed to sit at the pub tables in the bar, which made visiting with our entire group challenging (there were 8 of us). The food and service (other than lost reservation) were wonderful, but I was very disappointed in the seating.

The catfish chicken wings ribs and pulled pork were excellent and the corn bread was pretty good too not too much into sports so the noise level at the bar was a little more than I wanted more into barbecue then sports good flavored sauce all-around enjoy the experience not sure if the waitress was also the bartender because took a few tries to get her back to our table to get refill on drinks but I’ll definitely be back again

The restaurant was extremely hot I don’t think the ac was working very well. The waiter and food took forever. Reservation was at 6:30 we didn’t get to order food until 7:30. Than it took forever to get the food. Food order came out wrong twice. Horrible customer service. The waitress were talking about what we had ordered we could here them from the kitchen.

My food came out 10 min after everyone else’s. My husband got a meal and they brought the appetizer. Someone else didn’t get their sides.

Famous Rene and staff were great! The service and food was awesome and they made sure my grandchildren were taken care of and happy! It's also a great location, easy to get to and plenty of parking.

Tried Famous Dave’s for the first time. There was a long wait to be seated even though the restaurant was close to empty. When we finally got seated we were greeted by Famous Ray who was spectacular with us making our experience there amazing. We had the Nachos and feast for 2 (first time where & wanted to try a little bit of everything). The food was very delicious. Worth waiting for. I highly recommend this place.

My fiancé and I will be returning!

1st time to Famous Dave's. Ordered the Feast for 2. Food was good ... fast to the table. Just two of us. We took home what we didn't eat. We ate left overs for 3 more meals. We'll be back.

Big box barbecue..nothing special. Of the 4 varieties of meat we tried all were bland until sauce was added. The brisket was especially fatty. We don't plan on going again.

I was disappointed. Since my last visit it appears they cut the portions and raised their prices. The waitress was nice but the service was slow. We were going to order BBQ turkey for Thanksgiving dinner but they ran out. The food isn't that bad, for what you're paying its mediocre. Since they're franchised operation I may try other locations to see if they're any different.

It had been a while since I’d eaten here and I need to go back more often. Food was great and with ample portions.

We've eaten here twice and both times it was great. It's a rib/bbq place, so maybe not good for vegetarian or vegan customers. They are friendly but not intrusive, and the price is very reasonable for the quality!
