Famous Dave's - Peoria
Kid's Georgia Chopped Pork Sandwich
Award-winning, slow-smoked chopped pork topped with Rich & Sassy® on a toasted bun. Served with bread & butter pickle chips.
Sweetwater Catfish Fingers
Tender strips lightly breaded with Cajun seasoned cornmeal and flash-fried, served with rémoulade and Jalapeño Sweet & Sour sauces.
We were not treated as paying customers. We felt like second class citizens. Military discounts not given cause not Monday.
Took 20 minutes for someone to greet us and get our drink order. It took 1 hour 10 minutes to get our food. Ribs were super fatty. Not worth it!
NatalieW - We're committed to providing exceptional service, and are sorry to hear we missed the mark here. We hope you'll consider giving Famous Dave's a second chance.
It was just ok, service was slow...felt forgotten more than once. Fried pickles are yummy!!
King - Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We'll be sure to let the team know.
If you looking for some good barbecue brisket, ribs or flavor food... this is the place.
That's what we like to hear! Thanks for stopping by.
Without a doubt, Famous Dave’s is our favorite place for BBQ. This type of restaurant is not meant to be fancy.
Seating is comfortable and they did space out occupancy. I do recommend
ThomasW - Thanks for the review! Hope to see you again soon.
Fantastic food and LOVE the ability to reserve a table
Guest - Glad to hear it! We appreciate the review.
I booked this for my daughters 29th birthday because she was craving BBQ. Our reservation was at 7:30. We were seated at a table for 5 and there was 6 of us so we asked to move which was fine. The kids were filled up in three sodas waiting for our food. It finally came out an hour after ordering and a few of ours were cold. The waiter Nick did the best he could with a bad situation. He repeatedly apologized for the food not coming out and we were told they had a party of 30 in another room so that was taking up all the kitchen time.
Our app came out after the food. What a mess. The manager never came over to apologize. Had the waiter do it. I’m was very disappointed. We did took our waiter. He tried. But I wouldn’t recommend anyone dine in here.
Ribs too fatty
Brisket dry overcooked
Cece - We're committed to providing exceptional service and legendary BBQ, and are sorry to hear we missed the mark here. We hope you'll consider giving Famous Dave's a second chance.
Was a great place and food excellent and service great
CarlynG - That's what we like to hear! Thanks for stopping by.
We went to Famous Dave’s this time for Easter lunch. The food was fantastic. We split the dinner for two and added catfish fingers and our son had the pork sandwich. The food was hot and fresh and the staff was friendly. We were disappointed that the Sunday special was not available on this particular day but understand that it was a holiday. Guess we will have to go back.
AutumnG - Thanks for the review! Hope to see you again soon.
Excellent service! Our server was fantastic! We’ll be back!
CambriaP - Glad to hear it! We appreciate the review.
Our server was on top of everything
Portions have decreased and prices have increased. Menu is very limited compared to previous menus.
Klinky - We always appreciate feedback, and hope you'll consider dining with us again in the future.
We sat outside and it was nice and quiet. A few additional guest were seated outside but decided to be reseated inside because it was too chilly. It would have been nice if they would have utilized the outdoor heaters that they have.
Thanks for the feedback! We hope you'll consider dining with us again.
Great burger & fries pickles....miss the chips though.
Miss Vicki was a great server! Food was awesome!
The food and service, as usual, were excellent. We really miss, however, the before dinner chips. We really hope, after Covid, that the before meal chips return return. This was a signature item that helped separate Famous Dave's from other BBQ restaurants.
Had a nice dinner. Food was good as always! Service was okay. Hostess helped us more than our waitress. Will return for some good BBQ!
Love famous Dave's but was disappointed when we went for baby back ribs and got told they didn't have any. The food was delicious and service was great.
Food was AMAZING! You will have to wait for a table for about 1hr to 1hr 1/2. This is the only downfall is the Waite time even with a Table Reservation.
I had made a reservation on Open table for the first time, When we arrived they hostess was very attentive. I had told her that we had a reservation for 6 pm. She sat us right away. The servers were fabulous and very attentive!!! We had ordered the Feast for 2 (it should he called a Feast for 12). Lol. So much delicious food!! The food arrived hot and fresh. It was so good we didn't want to stop eating but we were full. We had to take lots home. Which didn't sadden my husband at all! The staff is so customer service oriented our dining experience was absolutely wonderful!! THANK YOU FAMOUS DAVE'S!!
First time going to this location and everything went great. We had reservations but we still had to wait for a bit when we got there. Our waiter was awesome and the food was delicious. We will be going back next chance we get.
Okay, but disappointed
Great easy dinner....always good! Miss the chips
Beef brisket sandwich and Mac n cheese. Meat was very tender. Both very good!
Staff did not wear mask when taking our order - had to ask them to put on mask.
Could not order on line - tried to
Pay and came back saying “order not complete”.
Called and asked about out door seating. - told there was, but when we got there told not offing out door seating. Did not enjoy visit.
Tucker was our waiter last night. He provided excellent service. The food was great will definitely be back:).
My family and I were highly disappointed. The food was mediocre and the service was just okay. The price for the quality of meat and portion size did not add up. We honestly left feeling ripped off and we do not plan on returning.
Celebrating birthday with family service was prompt and courteous, social distance seating is provided we were seated immediately and the food was excellent. Would recommend this location
We have been frequenting Famous Dave's for over 10 years. Unfortunately, I believe the pandemic has affected it. We always enjoy the chips at the beginning of the stay. Those were stopped about a month ago. Unfortunate. Staff has a larger table ratio - it seems. Waiters/waitresses run around overwhelmed. I see how places have to reduce costs. Menus are smaller and often reprinted -- likely so that costs can be reprinted on the menus (at higher cost). I get the economic situation - unfortunately no real solution.
Had a wonderful meal. Will be going again. Everything was just great. Service was outstanding
Like the variety of items on the menu. The food was good and very efficient service. Hope to return.
Food and service was excellent
Did not uphold reservation. Had to wait outside in 105 plus degree weather for over 20 minutes and then service was slow, unfriendly and not attentive. Ruined my niece’s birthday!
Great food and specials
Was dissapointed that no chips were served while we waited. It was one of the reasons we like to come to Famous Dave's.
Great salads, love the bar area....more quiet 🤫
Very good service . Server was very friendly and good!
Great burgers and ribs
I used open table to reserve a reservation for Sunday June 21. Only to be told by the restaurant that they don’t take reservations anymore. I was furious because the restaurant had my information for the reservation and didn’t bother calling and telling me that they no longer take them.
After speaking with the manager we we’re seated I was very disappointed.
