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.

We used Open Table to make a reservation for 6 of us, when we got there we were informed that even though we reserved a table it was first come first served and the wait would be a 1/2 hour which turned into 50 minutes. Food was out quicky and was very good. I hope our server was new because he didn't know anything about the menu and we had to ask for water and condiments twice.

I live in Colorado, and was here visiting my Mother. We went to the West Jordan Famous Dave's to celebrate a late Mother's day, with my Mom and all her daughters. We called ahead for a reservation for 8. When we arrived they had set up a table in the middle of the isle, 10 feet from the door. It was not welcoming or private. we asked to be moved into the room on the other side of the wall, and they would not move us, that room was empty, and available for seating but we had to sit out in the entry way isle.

The corn was over cooked, the ribs were burnt, and the salmon plank was the smallest portion I've ever seen - literally it was a piece about 4x4". In Denver, the salmon is a generous whole slice of salmon, 8x4."

I ordered decaf coffee which was the worst coffee I think I've ever had, it was bitter and it actually stank. I couldn't drink it. The waiter took care of our basic needs, but that was all. He never came back to see if anyone needed additional drinks or refills,. The trash can lid arrived and was placed on one end of the table so the other half of the table had to get out of our eats to get food. In Denver, the platter would have been splitt, the extraneous junk and advertisements on the table taken away to make room, and the plates placed in front of each person instead of piled on one end of the table.

I was astonished at the difference between my experience at the Famous Dave's versus the one we go to regularly in Denver (Brighton Colorado, Larkridge location). Shame on you. We won't be back.

Our waitress Rhiannon was training we never would've guessed. She was amazing! The food was great, we made a reservation online and when we got there we were sat right away. The staff was friendly, will definitely be eating here again.

As always the food was wonderful, and the service amazing. The restaurant is clean and the bar is awesome looking. It was Mother's day, and I loved that I could make reservations on line. I'd recommend Famous Dave's to anyone looking for great BBQ.

I appreciate the remodeling and how you're trying to reduce the noise in the restaurant.

Might be my last visit to this restaurant. The floor were disgusting. They were so sticky, my heels of my shoes were coming off my feet. We were squeezed in a corner, it was uncomfortable. If I pulled out my chair to sit down, I would hit the person behind me. The waitress came and sounded terrible. She sounded like she had a bad cold. Her voice was so raspy. I couldn't imagine her bringing out my food or drinks.
Worst experience ever!

Our server was friendly and knew they were slow but couldn’t do anything about it. We were 40 minutes waiting for our food. Mine must have been done much sooner than my husbands...his food came out hot and everything on my plate was cold. This has happened before when we went to Famous Dave’s but between the noise level and slow service and cold food we will probably not be returning.
