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 went to famous Daves to celebrate my 50th birthday with friends and family. We were seated promptly at our reservation time and our orders were taken. That's when it all went to hell. They had a chemical issue, and we had to evacuate the restaurant per the hazmat crew instructions. No other details were given. The manager refunded money paid for drinks, but then we were forced out. Birthday celebration is ruined, and no coupons or other dispensation given for our inconvenience.

    Great service all the way around. The host was awesome on the way in and held the door for us on the way out. Our server was just as attentive and accommodating as he needed to be. Kudos to this great team!

    Excellent service and the ribs were incredible! Need more domestic options on tap, like Busch Light.

    Much of the food was great. The chilli I thought could use some more meat. I ordered the Smokin Ribeye at like $29 and asked for it to be medium well. It was very rare. I was very disappointed in the steak this time around. The waitress wasn't around as much as would have been preferred and there were not many patrons in the restaraunt. Overall the visit was good despite the few concerns.
    Famous Dave's - Sioux CityResponded on December 7, 2023
    RegularJoe - We're sorry to hear that you had a less-than-Famous experience. We're still serving the same authentic BBQ we always have, and hope you'll consider giving Famous Dave's another chance. Next time you are in ask for a Famous Manager to stop by your table. That way we can make sure to make it right for you! Thank Que!

    Food was great. We had a group of 15 and the food came out in a timely manner. Our server was on top of it. He refilled drinks and he was observant.

    We had a large group but it did take a long time to get our food. It was not very hot when we got it. Could have been a little better.
