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.

    Ranch dressing tasted like sour cream mixed with blue cheese, nastiest ranch ever had, chicken was questionable if it was edible, ribs were slimey, not the best experience.

    We had the feast for 2 and it was so much food. The brisket was great. The ribs were meaty. The chicken was tasty. We could have used some butter for the corn and corn bread. The corn bread was moist. The baked beans had something spicy I believe jalapeños which I didn't like but my family liked them. The slaw was good creamy and vinegar-y. The fries were great. If you like hot bbq ask for some Wilber's Revenge. My husband had the Manhandler. He thought the brisket and sausage was great with just a little kick. The loaded potato skins were amazing.

    Good food and good service by the employees; however, I had made Father's Day reservations on OpenTable, but when we arrived, the restaurant had no record of it and said their reservation system wasn't working. We only had to wait about 15-20 minutes for a table, so it wasn't too bad, but it was a little annoying.

    Dave’s was a busy this Father’s Day as I have ever seen it so the staff were all working extremely hard to keep all their patrons well served and happy with their meal! Our Server, Benjamin, was friendly and attentive. Our meal was well prepared and everything was fresh and tasted great. Due to the the busy holiday the kitchen was backed up so it took longer than usual to receive our meal, but understandable. We dine at Dave’s about once every couple of months and look forward to going back again soon!

    Food was good, but service was lacking. To be fair service is lacking at many places these days. As far as the BBQ, I am from the East Coast and have a different take on BBQ. Overall not a bad place, but like Pizza, many different types BBQ and it may be your preferred taste.

    African American waitress was bad. We were 3 people, didn't bring us silverware or plates, we asked and only brought us 2 of each. Didn't come back to ask for more, so we all had to share. Only brought us 2 waters and we had to share. Everyone around us were complaining about her as well. Food was excellent.

    Have to say that this was defiantly one of the best experiences I've had at this Famous Dave's location. Service was very good - thanks Skyler! Food, tasty and prepared well with generous portions. I would only suggest that your hostess be more lively, she didn't seem to know what an Open Table reservation was and showing us to the table seemed like a scene from The Night of the Living Dead - come on now, you are a young lady show some pep in your step!
