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.

    I had ribs combo and it was delicious. I also enjoyed the banana pudding. It was amazing! I am picky about banana pudding, but this one was great! If you like banana pudding please try. Everything was great except the service. The service was not bad, but the server for our table seemed unmotivated. Maybe it was not her day.

    Famous Dave's - NoviResponded on January 15, 2020

    Thanks for the feedback! Our Down Home Banana Pudding is a delicious choice for dessert! I will bring your comments about service to the attention of management so we can work harder to provide Famous service to each and every guest!
