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.

We visited Famous Dave’s the first week that restaurants were able to be open 50 %. The management spent the time closed to remodel the restaurant with more comfy booths. The entry/order area is now made with social distancing in mind. Staff are wearing masks and you see them frequently cleaning. Silverware, napkins and packaged wipes are contained in a plastic covering. The food was hot, tasty and you felt reassured that it may be ok to eat out with these safety measures implemented. We have continued to order carry out during Covid and some staff wear masks, some do not. Thank you Famous Dave’s for setting the standards high, please keep it up.

In all fairness, we had a large group. The food came out at all different times and our waitress was a bit frazzled but it was a good experience and would return for another visit.

We had to wait awhile to even get someone to come ask what we would like to drink, our appetizer wasn't brought out and when we asked for it we still waited 15 minutes and had to ask again for it, it was finally taken care of. I understand if they were extremely busy but they weren't.

They were the toughest ribs I’ve ever eaten.
