This is a counter-serve (shack) location, but we have plenty of seating. 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 called to inform that we would be about 10 minutes late. They told me that would not be a problem. Once there, we had about a 3 to 5 minute wait to order our food. We chose a booth. They had a bucket of water to wipe down the table and booth seats before we sat, which I assumed had a disinfectant in the solution. Wait for our food was about 7 to 10 minutes. The food was delicious and plentiful. I took my dessert with me that I thoroughly enjoyed that night and as brunch the next day.

The staff was very nice, and I was actually happy to see that this is more self service where you order at the counter and they bring it to you. Other than that, my brisket and chopped pork were only lukewarm. I know that BBQ isn't cooked when you order it, however I was hoping for a hot meal.

Did not realize this was a order at the counter restaurant. Employees were yelling back and forth at each other (work related but unprofessional nonetheless). No paper towels at wash station. Food was not cooked all the way through. Would not return.

When I got there. The table wasn't even reserved. The server told me to find my own table.

Famous Dave’s should not be on Open Table. They had our reservation (there was 12 of us), but there weren’t any tables ready for us. That said, the staff did a wonderful job accommodating us as quickly as they could.

Had not been to this Famous Dave’s before. Had a party of 10 and made a reservation on Open Table. When we got there, they had no clue we were coming and a table wasn’t ready. As it turns out they had plenty of room and the place was an “order at the counter” and not by a waitress kind of place. No harm, no foul, but it would be good if they knew we were coming, never the less, incase the place was full.

Food was very good as usual and would go back, however.

Since we had a group of 6, I wanted to make a reservation. Used the Open Table reservation system. When we arrived, there was no way to check in and a long line to order at the counter. It was very busy and few tables left. Some of our group went to save a table (just in case) while I tried to get some information about our reservation. I flagged down a woman who was bussing tables and asked about our reservation. She didn't know anything about it. She said we should just get in line. If we hadn't saved a table for ourselves, there would have been no tables left. We had an excellent meal and the rest of the service was good. But what is the point of making a reservation if none of the staff knows anything about it? If we hadn't saved a table for ourselves, we would not have gotten a table.
