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.

    Brisket was gristly. They provided more but that was dry. Otherwise the meat was pretty good.

    Food was good as usual. Thankfully it wasn’t too crowded as the host said they don’t accept reservations. I tried to explain but he was not very interested in hearing. Not sure if he just doesn’t know or they really don’t work with Open Table any longer.

    This Famous Daves location says it doesn't use OpenTable. They said even though it is on the website, there location is listed, and I had a confirmation number, they do not use OpenTable for reservations.

    Service was good, server told us that she had been there 15 years. Food was very good with exception of the mashed potatoes. St Louis ribs and chicken were done well with choice of sides. Drinks: Good selection of beer and wine. Ambiance: Open noisy bar. Recommendation: Yes for BBQ and having a selection of sides and drinks.

    Ribs were not as good as one would expect. The chicken in the chicken Caesar salad was fairly cold. The corn bread muffins are yummy!

    I made a reservation on Open Table for 7pm and the reservation was confirmed via email. When we arrived, we were informed that Dave's closes down all reservations in the morning and that we would have to wait 45 minutes for a table. We went elsewhere. I will not go back there again.

    Average food could have had more butter for the corn. Chicken was well cooked and mashed potatoes were good. The turkey was a little dry but gravy helped We did have a very nice server.

    Server was excellent. Most of the food was good, but two of our group ordered the brisket and it was tough, full of grilse and fat.

    Waited 10 mins for a table (we had reservations) and another 20 mins for someone to acknowledge us/ ring us water. Requested a booth, yet, “no booths are available”… there were clearly booths available. Empty. A few mins later, a couple was seated at a booth. Food was decent enough… but we didn’t care for their bbq sauces.
