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.

Server was great....service was terrible. There was no one in the restaurant hardly and the time in between being helped and getting some of our food was ridiculous.

We had the sampler app. and the feast. Everything was delicious and we even had some left over to take home. There were seven of us there that night and we had the best service ever. Our glasses were never empty. I would highly recommend it. It was also great to be able to make a reservation online so we could be seated right away.

The food was delicious but it was just barely warm. Two of the 4 of us were served food that was not hot, and barely even warm. Our waitress, however, was very friendly and attentive.

I’ve always gone to the one in Ontario. Service was always on point. The ribs would practically fall off the bone. When you order the Feast all the servers would yell out FEAST. But here is was lame. The only one that said it was the server that would bring it. It was sad. Food was good but just wasn’t what I used to at the other Famous Dave’s. We pick this one because it was a lot closer from work. But hope it improves.

The food is decent for bar-b-q....the service is always slow to bring the basics. If you bring your own water as well as salt...you’ll have little to complain about. It is a bit pricey although.

I reserved a table online, did have to wait an additional 10 minutes though. We had Famous Larry for our server, he was awesome. Our hostess was great too, she apologized for our wait. All 4 of us enjoyed our food. Next visit I'll request a table away from the kitchen-

Onnie is the best server on the planet. She knows what we order, what we drink, she pays attention to all of our needs. Famous Dave’s is our favorite Redlands restaurant.

My family and I went to famous Dave’s and it was a big party (party of 12). I thought that that would be a problem because not only did we have a big party, but it was also a Friday night. We had reservations for 6 O’clock, and we were seated by 615 even though there was also A baseball team waiting to be seated. So we were seated relatively quickly, had a great server~ very attentive~ And all of us were done eating by 730 that’s how fast the food came out !

I came in with a large group of 12 and I had explained before we arrived that our time would be very tight as we were on our way to and event and we were in a bit of a hurry. They took our orders the minute we sat down, and were kind enough to offer us the opportunity to pay while our food was cooking so we wouldn’t be delayed with the processing of multiple bills. All the food came out at the same time, everyone’s food was hot, and everyone’s food was delicious. If I could give them more than five stars I would. We had a great experience at this Famous Dave’s!

Very slow service. 1.2 hours to get our food from seating time. Food was cold when it arrived. Normally love this place but this was a really bad experience unfortunately.

I ended up having more than 20 people in my party and they accomadated well. Famous Shawn served my large party all by himself. He did a great job with refills and making us laugh. I appreciate you all helping to make my niece's birthday dinner special.

Our table reservation for 12 was for 445pm - we arrived 430pm (early) took 5 minutes before we were acknowledged, young man told us our table was almost complete for set up (435pm) took another 15 minutes before we were approached again (450pm) and who I assume was the host asked for how many, explained we had a reservation and the gentlemen stated our table was almost ready, she stated she was having the table cleaned and organized for my party size (when prior the young man told it was almost completed for set up) Overall we got seated at 508pm (28 minutes after reservation) once seated the service and food was excellent.
