Barbecue
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.

    Got there on time for the reservation and the hostess disregarded that and told me there was a 20 minute wait and proceeded to take all the information that I already provided for the online reservation. We ended up going to BJ's and got seated immediately and had some great food!

    Disappointed. We were not aware that they were operating on a limited menu. Much of what we like to get there was not available. Had we known, we would have changed plans. Service was ok.

    The atmosphere at Famous Dave’s was nothing short of perfect. We brought our 7-year-old daughter and she thoroughly enjoyed herself and her food as well. Dinner was amazing, and very fairly priced. We will definitely be returning soon! Thanks for a great experience.

    When we arrived, they were not ready for us. Our 5:45 reservation turned into a 6:15 reservation. The food was absolutely amazing. Our server phenomenal. Such a great value for what we ordered. Would definitely return in hopes of a speedier check in when making a reservation.
