Thomas H Smith III

Food was delicious but service was a tad on the slower side. Still not a bad experience

Sharelle M

Do yourself a favor and have the banana pudding... INCREDIBLE! My husband loves their bbq sauce. I'm not a big meat eater so I always get wings. Been eating here for years & never had a bad experience.

Shakira Johnson

Love famous Dave's! Saw this one in DE AND had to stop in! Our server Ryan was fun and attentive! Bread pudding was on point as usual. Everyone was nice and friendly.

Stella Callihan

My first Saturday night, this location. Really busy, sat at bar. Only one attendant. Working really hard and fast. Food rec'd somewhat cold but delicious as always. But my bananna pudding was lost in in the confusion of all the orders going into the kitchen and when it appeared was basically a pretty bowl of vanilla wafers with whip cream. No pudding. Didn't complain as that would mean waiting some more. Don't give up on this place, its always good. Just maybe try another night.

Rick Henson

Friendly staff, great food, military discount.

Anna Perry

Super long wait for take out. The in restaurant dinning is "rustic" and loud

Janet Brown

I love the food here.

Raymond Muse

Wonderful food and staff, with a great atmosphere.

Jerry Cusick

Good eats

Larenda Billups

My husband and I get the platter thing for two and we really like this place, but every time we order the ribs, what they’re supposedly known for, they’re really tough and hard to get off the bone. I shouldn’t have to pull so hard that it almost flies across the table at my husband because I can’t get my teeth to pull the meat off. Everything else was amazing though.


Yo this place was fye meaning good as hell corn came a lil late but hey what restaurant is perfect

Hugh Johnson

The McDonald's of BBQ...if you need something that taste like BBQ but you're too lazy to make it yourself...this is your place


We had a large group reservation after a funeral and they would not seat us until our entire party was there, even though they were not busy; we had to wait in the lobby or stand outside. Staff was fairly nice but didn't come around too often despite the size of our group. A few of us ordered the ribs and we all agreed that they were pretty dry and tough. Not a terrible setting, but definitely not what I would expect from a "Bar-B-Que" style restaurant. Probably wouldn't go there again. :(

Amy Andrews

Great food Service a bit slow in the beginning

Elizabeth Hughes

Went to Famous Dave's in Taylor, MI for my son's birthday dinner. The staff did an excellent job and the food was delicious. Will be going back soon.


Fast and friendly service. Food was great!

Raymond Hannon

Well folks there's been an update. Had tried Famous Dave's approximately 9 months ago. Food was not so good. Went there last week thinking that possibly it would have gotten better. Sadly to say it's still in the gutter. What a shame because they used to have good food. If you wanted good BBQ you went two Famous Dave's. This one is slipping and I mean fast. One foot on a banana peel the other one on a hot skillet.

T. J. Brumfield

It is a chain, but I do really love the sauces. You might find a better brisket at a family run BBQ joint, but I've never had a bad meal at Famous Daves.

Delphine McLamb

The food is awesome and the staff is great

Shannon Anderson

Love it here , friendly staff great food

Melyssa Sava

This place is so good, everything that we have had on the menu has been delicious The service is wonderful as well!

Rob Marolla

Very tasty, fair pricing, large portions.

Patricia Watkins

As always... No problems... Food was great!

Ash R

It was so good and the waiter was super friendly/helpful! I look forward to going back.

Kyle Tingley

Brisket was good today. If you are into hot sauces they have special ones by request only. Check them out if that's your kind of thing!

Mary Ervin

It was good. Took it as take our.

Don Myers

We came in here and ordered the feast for two . I know it's a chain restaurant but it was awful. The ribs weren't even close to being done. The brisket was so tough and dry it was inedible. The beans were good and the water was s cold. Other than that I wouldn't go back. Too many other good bbq restaurants in kc. I was not impressed. They need help.

Christopher Glass

Food was cooked to Perfection and the staff did pretty well at getting my companies to go order perfectly made

Mykena Mueller

I did not have a pleasant time here, Katrina does not know how to get things correct at all. She messed up the drinks and the food. Disappointed.

Kristine Oberg

Have been going to this location for many years. Love the atmosphere and the food is ALWAYS good (and I always eat too much!) We had them cater a "special year" bday party for me 10 years ago - outstanding. And last year I went there for part of my bday celebrating and the sweetest staff member sang happy birthday to me in a jazzy, blues way and I told him he needed to go on American Idol! He absolutely made my day ;)

Steve Schmidt

Good place to get BBQ. But not unique. Good service, competitive price, large menu.

Espy Williford

Thank place to eat and joy your food

C Carda

Great food and great service. Friendly staff.

Jayme Wiles

I have to say that I am thoroughly disgusted with Famous Dave's they are only out for the buck and they can't even give you any better to go along with your corn muffin. The amount of beans that you're given for a meal is about a tablespoon and I'd feel like Famous Dave's only cares about how much money they can make and how little food they can give you I will not be back.

Caroline Mann

I moved to Vegas from the East Coast last year and it's been difficult to find a really good bbq place. I really like Famous Dave's! The chopped pork is great. I also really enjoyed their mac and cheese AND THE CORNBREAD IS DELICIOUS!

Florentino Martinez

Great food,good service

James Vancura

Famous Dave's Bar-B-,Q has the best short ribs on the planet. Simply takes your palette on an adventure you'll never forget and forever want again and again. We got a no-go order and took it home. The order was quick and delicious. Definitely doing that again.

just saying

The food isn't worth the price! It wasn't what I remembered it was. It has been about 7 years since I've been there and it will probably be another 7. The waitress was a sweet heart though. She was very nice and did a wonderful job at waiting on us.

Kimberly Roth

In the mood for bbq! Famous Dave's is your spot! Had the Feast for Two. Brisket melts in your mouth and the corn muffins, oh so yummy. Baked beans are full of flavor. Great choice!

christopher whitehead

Awesome place to eat!!! Hands down the waiting staff is awesome also if u have never eaten there its a must go place

Lara Schanzer

Didn't quite know what to expect, but the reviews were much higher for Dave's than for Arthur Bryant's. So glad we went here! Friendly service, delicious food, AND meticulously clean bathrooms. I had the smoked chicken with broccoli and grilled pineapple steaks, all of which were cooked to perfection. The meal also comes with a cornbread muffin that is to die for. Before you order they bring you a side of BBQ chips that are crispy, crunchy, and just all around tasty. Also enjoyed all of their sauces, the sweet and tangy was my favorite. My friends and I had a blast here, and got a great meal. Highly recommend.

Myron Anton

The service was a little slower than normal and we had tickets for Civic center event so I mentioned that to the waitress and within 10 minutes we got our food, and it was really good just like always.

Saz Dixon

Felt rushed to place my order. Didn't get any suggestions on the best selections. Welcomed with a smile.

DJ McVay

Great food for a not so bad price. I highly recommend the all American feast its great in price if your feeling a small group of 3 to 5 people. Always love going hear never had a bad meal or service.

Vikki Pirttinen

Service was great but the food left a lot to be desired

Thom Burns

Service was good. Food was good and quick. Seating area is small.

Andrew Thomas

Amazing barbecue. Love going here, the brisket is the best

Shannon Walker

Went with a group of 16. Great service! Great food! Fast!!

zach massey

Ordered food for pickup. Portions were small. Food was ok. I was a little disappointed. I am here each year for a convention and won't try Famous Dave's again.

Victor Ruebeck

Food is excellent service is good

Daniel Rough

Food was good. Brenda was a great waitress. Had the full rack of ribs, red garlic mashed potatoes, and broccoli. Oh and the new cheese curds. Was an overall welcoming experience. Didnt get to try any drinks. I been eating there since 2010. Its always good when they pay attention to drinks and make sure you have everything you want with your meal. Definitely on my list to eat again

Gary Nunley

On Monday 4/23/18 I called an order in to be picked up at 12:35 pm, when I placed the order the employee asked me if the phone number I was calling from was a good number to reach me at. I said that it was and hung up. When I arrived at the restaurant to pick up my order at 12:35 pm the employee informed me that they were out of one of the menu items that I ordered but had just received it on a truck delivery and were cooking it but it would take another 25 min. for it to finish cooking before they could provide it to me. I was picking up food for a meeting at 1:00 pm and didn't have time to wait for the item, but I wondered why didn't the restaurant call me to let me know this so that I could substitute this item for something else? They had my number, why would they wait until I arrived to ask me this question? I then ordered a Dave's Sassy Salad with pulled chicken for a replacement. The employee placed that order and then rang me up "cashed me out" to finalize the transaction. After waiting 12 minutes for the salad I finally walked back to the kitchen area and asked another server if he could check on the salad for me. He came out and told me that "they are working on it and will bring it out shortly". Now this is at 12:52 pm and the kitchen had already served the lunch rush. How long does it take to make a salad for an incomplete order? I doubt it takes 12 minutes. Shortly after speaking with the server by the kitchen the employee comes out with my salad and places it in my bag with the other ordered items and says; "Sorry about the wait, here's your salad" and then went on to helping another customer who was waiting with me. No sincerity in the statement, no offer of compensation for the wait or the incomplete order. Very frustrated with the Pick UP customer service at this location with this experience and previous experiences when I have placed orders for previous meetings. I don't think I will be back again.

LeAnn Norris

Great service...great portions for the price!!!

haven does games

This place is dirty. The bathroom was disgusting, the tables weren't clean, the waitresses are reusing the cardboard drink coasters. Gross! I don't want my drink sitting on some used up BBQ stained coaster. Those things are meant to be thrown away. The food wasn't terrible but it was all microwaved. Why? Why is the food microwaved??? And my fiance's plate of food was soooo small. For $15 he should have gotten a decent amount of brisket. He's not even a big guy but he seriously left there with still hungry.

Michael Steadman

Good food & fast service

will wright

Walked in with work associates at about 1930. Could hear the staff back in the kitchen/service area joking and laighing but there was no one at the bar or the greeting foyer. Waiting for 12 minutes and no one showed up at either place I did see one server. Granted after a few drinks our patients were very short. We left and went to Applebee's just a short trip and had best and quick service with a $239 tab. Worst response ever at a Famous Dave's across KS, MO, and NEB. Definitely will not ever return with clients very embarrassing.

Sandra Obrien

Great place to go for tasty catfish!! Friendly, and polite waitresses and waiters!! We have been there several times, and hopefully we will be back several more times!! :)

Andy Schisler

Good service, but not too impressed with the bbq

Sheryl Toupin

Great food! Fast and friendly service.

Susan Martin

Convenient location Branson Landing. They ran out of ribs, and the ones they served a member of our party were dry with little meat on them. Limited happy hour choices on both food and liquor. Ok, but better bar-b-que at other places.

Carlo Dacumos

Ribs were dry/over cooked. Was there for early lunch, so that rack must have been from previous day.

Walt Cavalier

Good enough. To answer your question of "Please let us know what we can do earn the additional stars", I would suggest tidy up the to go service. On my last visit, food was spilled over and running down the containers. My order was shorted one muffin and lastly, I suggest FD's staff check to go orders before they hand it to the customer. These problems weren't noted on the original review because the staff was busy,seemed a bit overwhelmed and no sense in piling on. My two cents.

val B

Awesome attentive accommodating service. Beautiful clean comfortable atmosphere delicious comfort food. Adding a mac and cheese side to the hickory chicken sandwich made a delightful brunch meal. Visually adaptive online menu available as well as excellent help from the overly friendly staff and great management team to wish there was a way to give 10 Stars

Ben Wiskar

Always stop in here when we're visiting Bismarck. Amazing everytime!!!

James Jablonski

Great food, great bartenders, and excellent service. I would eat there every day, but I would get too fat. Great portions and always a good time.

Robert Werth

Been to alot of Famous Dave locations and this one definitely is not the model store. Go here if you want SLOW uncaring service, cold food and a manager that was obviously in over her head and had an attitude. If I could leave 0 stars I would. This meal sure did leave a bad taste in some guests mouths

Daniel Gooda

We went here on lunch on a Wednesday and it was fairly empty. There was no one to initially greet us but the waitress from the back came out and heated us. Food was pretty good but only complaint here is food came out at different times for the group.

tammy watson

Take out service was excellent. Everything was cooked perfect except the Cat Fish Fingers. I had couple in my sampler platter and appetizer of Cat Fish Fingers. They were inedible. They were extremely salty and over cooked. It was a waste of money. My brother who is a lover of their Cat Fish Fingers thought someone was playing a joke or mad in the kitchen because he was shocked about the level of salt. Wasted money, lesson learn & never again.

Judith Tucker

bbq... quality stuff. i was so full. the service was friendly and observant. bring your appetite because portions are generous. i see why this place has so many great reviews.

Matthew Boesen

Fantastic service. The food was prepared fast and tasted extremely well. As someone who has gone to this one and the one located on 120 and L. this is the best one so far

Shi C

It has been years since I ate here. Started to crave a cajun chicken sandwich so I ordered to go online. Disappointed I was missing my onion strings and my bun was hard. Didnt realize until I drove home. Mac & cheese taste totally different and the fries not as good as it use to be. All of it was a waste of my money.

Dave Atkinson

Tasty food and drinks, maybe not the healthiest choice.

Sandra Goodyear

It was the first time I visit Famous Dave the food was over cooked and dry the portions size was way too small for the money you pay was not happy will not be returning.

Ducky Becker

This place has gone way downhill on their ribs and smoked wings. Very dry and chewy.

Tracey Del Rosario

Burnt ends were almost all fat.

Suzanne Bitters

Nice atmosphere, not too busy at the time we came. Witness was cheerful.

RoliRachel Lopez

Ribs are excellent not the burnt ends tooooo dry for my liking

Debra Kuehn

Good bbq, large portions but service was a little slow. Pricing reasonable for food portions.

Heather Weir

The food was good. Our server was very nice.

Samantha Leigh

Great, friendly staff. Quick service. Delicious food.

Karen Purnell

I had a family gathering on 7/14/18 and used Famous Dave’s to cater my event. Everything was set up so nice and the food was delicious. Everyone enjoyed the food. I will be using u guys for every event from now on. Thanks for everything

Allen Rummel

Pretty good BBQ. Their sauces are really good and have plenty of variety. Portions are a good size and have great flavor.

Susan-Mary DeWater

My Daughter and I enjoy the rustic atmosphere here. An unusual restaurant for sure but the food is great

George Almaraz

The food is great and service is friendly. When I go there with my friends and family we order the All American feast it has enough to satisfy the most hungriest stomachs and their bread pudding is very delicious.

angry bunny

The wife and I got take out, both pretty much the same - rib tips with corn on the cob to potato salad to cole slaw.. smell yummy, but this stuff we could not eat. There must have been 4 years worth of salt in everything from the ribs to the sides and even to the corn muffins. We both have never tasted such salty foods before. Never will be back. Update - the manager did make it right. Got a refund and they even threw in a $25 gift certificate, which I gave to the grandson as he eats at a different one. So, for service, 4 stars, but the food is still 1.


Ate the feast for 2. Was great. Topped it off with some bread pudding. This place has great bbq. Will be back :) service was great

Lauren Cream

Server Ryan is hands down the best waiter ever! He is who we ask for when we go in and we have never been disappointed, he is like one of the family. Food is amazing also!

Mark Michels

Excellent barbecue. Fast friendly service.


Great bbq

Dave Mead

Great service and food. Moderate prices.

Ray Pinault

I ordered and took my meal home to eat. Boy was it good

Jillyann Frenche

There is no dispute the food is great. Portions and prices are resonable. I order here a bit through door dash. Tonight I ordered dinner for me and the family, everything was great with one exception no sauce was in the bag. Other than that no complaints.

David Shue

Tom Sharrai

Service was excellant as was the food.

Barbara Mendez

Great service good food!!!

Caitlin Rogers

AMAZING service and food we need one of these in minot!!

Chell Sloan

Always good. I get the platter for 2. Always leftovers. Good service. If you like traditional barbecue, this is a great place to stop. Family establishment.

iHennesy Hennesy

The food is always GOOD TO GO! Wait staff were a HIT OF AWESOME!

Raymond Carroll

Good food great time with family and friends on my birthday celebration


Great lunch specials and they open early. Service is very good. Very clean also.

Allan besner

Great value for lunch specials.


Good place to hung out at

Brad Gray

I've always heard about how good this place is so on my trip to Branson I gave it a try. I was disappointed to say the least... not because if bad service or the facility itself wasn't clean. The service was fine and the tables were clean. The problem was the type of bbq. The rub was so heavy with salt I couldn't eat the ribs.... and I love ribs. The other meats were average at best. I was disappointed and there are other good places for bbq the so, sorry to say I think I'll try those moving forward.

Charlotte Collins

Good food, good service and conveniently located.

Sherri Ludlow

Best BBQ in the area they have such a large variety of BBQ sauses they cant display them all on the table but 6 are there. Great food!

Britt J

If you want reheated rib tips then this is the place to go. I have ordered from lots of other Famous Dave’s and this one is the worse. Took an hour for my food and this is what I get!! Food I can’t even chew on!!

John Williams

Worst place I ever ate! I'm pretty sure the waitress forgot to turn in our order. We waited over and hour after placing our order before it showed up. After we ordered a group of 5 came in, ordered full meals, ate and left before ours showed up. Food was barely warm and was missing parts of our order. Our drinks were empty most of the time. Worst dining experience I have had in years! Absolute joke.

Karen Dow

Loved the explanation of the sauces. I've been to famous Dave's several times and never gotten that before!

Kristina Peebles

Everything was delicious! They have a special menu with reduced prices at the Branson Landing location in Branson, Mo. I was very pleased with our server who stayed on top of our drinks and refill them consistently. Four of us ate for under $50. All the portions were just the right size.

Emily Walters

Famous Dave's is definitely where my family eats it's BBQ!!

s ritchie

Great customer service from John and great food!

Drew Higbee

Definitely one of my favorite barbecue places to go in Kansas City but you have to order the all American BBQ feast otherwise it's just another BBQ joint but this beast has everything french fries corn baked beans coleslaw a whole slab of ribs chicken and some of the best brisket I've ever had also cornbread muffins almost forgot those definitely got to try it

Bryan D

I have patronized this location several times before, but on this particular visit something was very off with the food. This has NOT been my normal experience at this location. But I have not ever been unable to finish a lunch sized portion. Sent one side item back for another, and the overall meal was very unappealing.

Herb Wyche

Good food, nice atmosphere. Bartender was nice.

Chris Scappaticcio

Always good. Great BBQ for a chain restaurant.

Courtenay Wallace

For a fast food chain, This place is legit. The bbq is so good. U didn't really expect to get the quality of meat, smoke and taste as if I did it myself but I was pleasantly surprised. If you can order ahead of your taking out, the wait can be a little long. (But it's worth it)

Nicholas Pooler

Same great Famous Dave's food. Staff is exceptionally nice. Location is easy to see and get to off of Hwy 55. Would be five stars if the location had more seating. Quaint small location is nice, except when it gets busy.

Ellen McMcneeley-

Barbeque place... My husband nbn d likes this place, i am not a fan of sugar laden barbecue sauces or rubs covering all their food.

Sharon Hurd

Great burnt ends platter. You can request a really really spicy hot BBQ sauce on side. Yummy

Randal Graves

Excellent service, even during a busy dinnertime. Food was outstanding, and more than enough of it to take home. Famous Dave's has that moniker for a reason, you won't be disappointed if you stop in this location, especially if you're a fan of ribs & meat!!

diana phillips

Good food. Good prices. Helpful staff.

Juan Rios

Amazing BBQ place in Detroit.

Leroy winterz

Awesome barbque.. make another stop here again most. Def.

Susan Gilmore

Just walked out after a roach walked across the table.

Andrew Schlafmann

Great food and fast service. The Rib Tips 'ti Payday aren't on the menu anymore, but they still can be ordered. The dish is pork rib tips and 2 lbs of fries. Corn bread muffins are not included. The rib tips were tender and the fries were crisp.

Ashley Lawrence

Authentic, homestyle taste! A but pricey, but honestly- what isn't? We had the family feast for 2 while in town- and had more than enough. Tender brisket, flavorful ribs, and great chicken.

Ian Agnew

This was our first time going here to eat and we enjoyed it overall. The food hit the spot and the servings were generous. Two adults could easily split a dessert. I had the half rack of ribs and the bread pudding for dessert. The restaurant itself was clean. The only frustrating part was our waitress wasn't very attentive. We went a good 20 minutes before she came by to get our order or refill our drinks. It could have been a one time thing so we'd be willing to go back.

Jae Hill

I will make this short...the service was great and the food was great as well. Everyone enjoyed their food.

Joseph Janousek

Great as always. Feast for 2 is best way to go for a 2 or 3 adults. Alot of food. Brisket is great. Best ribs in town. Love the corn bread muffins. If you love chocolate try the kalua brownie dessert it's wonderful. Great friendly staff. Good tuesday specials. Bellevue location is the best and always happy with food at this location.

EmilyDon Sisk

Just enjoyed brisket sandwich, potato salad, and macaroni and cheese. Had a few hot pickle slices on the side. This was our first experience, To Go. The food was very good. Called in our order from a web search. Sharing the menu as of today, April 26, 2019, since the menu shown on Google has different prices. The only reason for 4 stars is it seemed like everything had a spice kick.

Jeremy Walter

What can I say... Love the place. Burnt ends are a must and we live the nachos with brisket.

brady palm

Ribs stuck to the bone and brisket so chewy you cant even bite through it. Worst Famous Dave's I've ever been to....

Randy Wynn

Excellent food and tremendous atmosphere

Melissa McKee

Sooo good. First time here and loved it

Richard Flowers

Nice food, take wanted a tip? So so SERVICE Be nice and then and only then a big tip.

Sheila M

Busy place, customers dining, ordering, grabbing take-out. Staff was helpful, calm, friendly, efficient! My husband loves baby back ribs; he always orders them naked, to apply bbq sauce sparingly! He raved about tonight's take-out order, BEST baby back ribs ever from Famous Dave's! We've always been satisfied, whether eating in & take-out, but tonight's ribs were outstanding!

Darrel Wells

Great service and food , I will be back

teachthemalltruth .

good service, and as always great ribs! One of the few Famous Dave's that's still self service - it feels more like a regular Barbecue Shack to me and I like that

NetteNette Hubbard

The quality of the food is still great. My only real complaint is that the new owners have changed the rustic decor that Famous Dave's is known for. The rustic, random, collected or donated items made it feel family oriented. The new decorations are to modern and takes away from the ambiance.

Drew Beninati

Poor service, cold food, no server follow up. Major disappointment. Burger was crispy burned. Staff is clueless!!


Ugh, I'm so bummed with Dave's. My family has been going here for years. We used to like it so much that we went on a weekly basis. Over the last couple of years it has been slowly going downhill. They have changed lots of recipes. The burgers used to be so good when they had brisket in them. Now they don't and they can never seem to cook them anything but well done. Tonight the bottom of my bun was hard as though it had been cooked by the heat table. They have changed the blue cheese dressing recipe which was a favorite and now is mediocre. The mac and cheese was dry. Just a disappointment. The ribs are so hit and miss. The only thing that I still enjoy is the bbq sauce.


Its expensive but well worth the money. Awesome place for BBQ and a better place to take a date or family.

higherknowledge 44

Very patient and amazing staff. The food was grate they never disappoint me.

Eric Dochnal

Food is great, staff is good, wait time for order is really slow. Whether we have had dine in or carry out, there is always a longer than normal wait to get your food. I know, I know, food takes time to cook. However, if you order 3 meals online prepaid and they tell you it will be ready in 30 minutes on a Wednesday evening, you expect it to be close to that time. Waited an additional 25 minutes to get the food. Only 1 person in front of me and they too had been waiting. I would have been good if they just gave the hour time to begin with. The dine in area was not busy either. We switched to using carry out from this location after always waiting so long for dine in meals. Guess I will just start adding 20 minutes to their time.

Jay Thomas

Great food. Big portions. Great service. Always on my top list to eat at.

Donna Sullivan

Great food and view of Lake Taneycomo!

no body

I love good BBQ and sometimes that's what you'll get from famous Dave's in Christiana the staff is awesome but the foods hit or miss,you can give it a try but i can't say the foods gonna be great

Diana Wolf

Terrific wait staff and the food is always great!

Katie Palmer

I had the chopped pork sandwich “Memphis style” (topped with slaw). I don’t like slaw with a strong mayo flavor - this was perfect! My husband had the 3 meat platter with chopped pork, ribs & brisket. He said the brisket was some of the best he’s had & the side of beans had great flavor. The lunch rates are so cheap!


Jake Robinson

Just wow. The food is so good I wouldn't care if I had a bad server or waited an hour for food. It's never happened, but I still wouldn't care.

Cory Shelton

Reliable menu items we expect from this chain restaurant. Very good service and quick seating for our large party.


We eat at Famous Dave's when we go to Branson. It has always been a favorite stop. The food has always been good. HOWEVER, this last visit the food was terrible. As a family of 10 there were different selections from the menu. None were good. The beef was dry. The potatoes were tasteless. The chicken was ok but for 15.00 a plate it was not worth the price. Service was a 8. Very expensive for less than average food. Find another place.

ulises franco

Great food and service is good too

brothers alarms

The ribs are worh the drive, love the sweet tea

Danny C.

The service was good but the food left a lot to be desired. The brisket was dry and flavorless, left us very disappointed. The boneless wings decent as an appetizer.

Mic Rhoads

Good food, great service. A little pricey but it’s probably worth the cost

Riley Hallmark

Worst place we have eaten since being in Bismarck. Great staff, horrible food. Ribs were chewy, corbread muffins too sweet to eat, Mac and cheese awful. I mean, how do you mess up mac and cheese? Overpriced for the quality of food. To the staff, I would give you 5 stars. The best thing about the meal was the pickles and the corn. But let's be honest, how hard is it to boil an ear of corn? I have never given a bad review but I feel like people should know, before they spend this kind of money anywhere, what they are getting. Coming from the south where we have back yard barbecues with better food than this, I am sorely disappointed in this experience.

Ana Fernandez

So delicious ribs, sausage, and more. The staff really friendly they make sure your order is serve as your good

Jennifer Fischer

Food is good but slow to seat. They had people waiting but had open, clean tables. It was during the buffet time so many people seated were basically self-serve. Once seated, service was adequate but, once again, half our party had buffet so were self-serve!

Darrell Miles CEC

Ordered "to-go"...My order was not verified (Famous Dave's does that verification process relentlessly) before I left...big mistake... Notice once I go home-wrong order. I called back to report. Manager's remedy was not to my liking, (bring order back and pay difference of what I was expecting...later changed to keep current order and come back in the restaurant to pick up expected order). I had a hungry family waiting, so I had little choice at that point. Arrived back at restaurant...order was ready...conversed with manager and order taker on what went wrong. I was actually had a counsel session on why it was my mistake by the order taker..."Go figure...He said I should have noticed by the price of my order $36...I replied "I did not order by price..." Anyway, they ultimately did not charge me additional for my original request...when I got back home, I noticed a portion of my original combo order was missing... I told them " everybody makes mistakes" I presume that's why they decided to check each to-go order before customers leave. In spite of all this, I would not be writing this 15 minute review had not that portion of my original order had been correct...That's right, wrong also...where's my chilli? Gotta have humor about still great if you can get what you want.

Michael Knox

Great staff! Showed up 15 minutes b4 closing and I apologized offering to not eat. The bar tender took great care of me and earned his $10 tip on a $15 ticket. I truly wish more establishments had a staff like this one!


The food was excellent. The staff was very friendly.

Kerri Nash

Delicious barbecue and great service. It was my first time eating there, I live in Port Arthur Texas we would love to have one here. I was trying to buy one of your t-shirts but you were sold out.

Eric Nawrocki

Great place! I had the ribs and brisket, it was very delicious. Great customer service as well! I will be definately going back again.

Bobby Weber

My family and I ate here last night and the food was fantastic. Service was good.

Cynthia Randolph

Great service, our meal was served timely. Food was hot and tasty!

Vickie Jones

It was a little wait but it moved quite quickly and very organized. And the front desk was polite .

Janet Douglas

Waitress was awesome! we sat in the bar, at that time of night out waitress was also the bartender. Asked for drink suggestion and she nailed it. Food was good, ribs, meat was falling off the bone. Everything was tasty, food temperature was perfect.

BOB Choate

Good food, good service

Mark Stroud

Must do if you like bbq

Dovie Henderson

Love this place. Family & I have been eating at Famous Dave's for years. They are one of the best BBQ restaurants. They're prices are also very comparable.

Sarahy Arriaga

Server, not good and or patient. Food was dry and pricey. Not going back any time soon.

Jeremy Moran

Went there for dinner on 4/26 and recieved the worst service I've ever had. The waitress was snobby and had an attitude. No pop refills we had to ask a different waitress. When we were done with our meal she went to one end of the table (we had a party of 9) and asked them what the wanted for desert and completely ignored me and my 3 children.

Nicole Steed

Best BBQ in New Castle

Hermie Wilson

Their brisket is very good and tender. I liked the choice of side dishes they had available as well. Some of their other meat options that I like beyond the brisket. Burnt butz and jalapeno cheese sausage are great choices. Not to say the other options available are not good. Those are just what I preferred.

Chris Williams

All I can say is OMG GOOD.

April Burnside

I absolutely love the catfish! Its good everytime!! been Mothers day yesterday. Wait times were crazy, which im fine with waiting for food. But, after waiting 40 minutes for take out...walked home and opened the food.....and the potatoe wedges and apples, were way under cooked!!!. Which were suppose to be me dinner for my 9month old. I get it, it was busy .My spouse and i are also a chefs....and you should never rush cooking food, even if its busy. You want your customer to keep coming back.

Brittany Brodo

I placed an order through Door Dash tonight for my husband's birthday, since it is hard for us to get out with 2 toddlers and our schedule. There was a glitch where you did not get my order, which can happen and I understand that. However, Door Dash said they tried to rectify that when they contacted you. You refused to redo the order in your system for whatever reason. Not sure why since this was a decent order. Insanely disappointed since this was the first and last time we will order from you and or use Door Dash.

Nicole Margaret

The ribs are fantastic and Celiac friendly. I've never gotten sick from eating at Famous Dave's. My only complaint would be that the wait staff here never seems to remove dishes from the table even when clear signs that your are finished with them are given.

Joey Cal

Okay cocktails. Food was good, typical local prices. Service was decent. Log cabin type decor.

Demetrice Smith

Always enjoy the food there. Make sure you are hungry. They have a great selection of comfort food and their prices are not bad.

Zachary Doll

Get the feast for two. You'll never have a better meal served off a trashcan lid.

Cheryl Morehouse

This was my first visit and I must say I loved everything! Very generous portions, great garden salad, loaded baked potato, brisket and spare ribs. DELICIOUS!!!

Lynnea Sparks

I'm sad that they closed two locations. The food was awesome

Kathy F

Coming from Memphis ( BBQ Competition), I was skeptical, but satisfied.

Harry Slaymaker

We stopped for lunch just before noon. There was no wait at that time. Food was good and the staff is friendly and helpful. Although we had catfish fingers and rib tips I think ribs are their specialty.

Travis Parker

Been there more the once now and every time it is always delicious. Great food and great staff.

Jamison Ousley

Dropped in for lunch and was blown away by the food. It was post lunch rush, so there was a bit of distractedness in the staff at first, but I had a delicious local beer, a quick lunch, and walked out much more impressed than I was expecting. Can't wait to go back!

James miller

We just got into town, been raining and we were ready for some BBQ and RR. The good side of this was the service was okay, the manager was very good and made several rounds. The bad... the food, bland. I had BBQ brisket nachos, chips were stale very little cheese and brisket. My wife had a loaded potato but the toppings were minimal and very disappointing.

John Morgan

Always a great choice for lunch. Fast service and awesome food. Devil's Spit burger is my favorite.

William Webb

Really good

Amber Zakaras

I enjoy the food but truly will start only doing take out cause the restaurant is just to cold. BRING A JACKET.

Steve Seehaver

Always good food and friendly staff

Mary McGourty

Loved it! Burnt ends and collard greens both excellent! Bought some xxx hot sauce too! Very friendly staff!

Sandra Bauer

Great food and service every time. One of our favorite places in Bismarck.

Christopher Hardwick

Polite service. Chain bbq. Was invited by a friend and decided to humor him. Flavor was good, meat was just a little overcooked. Chewy as opposed to tender. But i have paid more for worse. And the polite service gets it an extra star. (Southener note: Cornbread is sweeter than the sweet tea)

Charles Harris

Food was great. Between the 2 of us, we sampled all 3 styles of ribs and burnt ends. No complaints on any. Sides were good and service was great.

Stephanie Musser

Friendly staff and the food is great!

vinell wooden

They have good eats here love the food and the different sauces they have. Go try their food for yourself you won't be disappointed. I enjoy it and I like that they have takeout you can order and pickup.

Julia Durning

The staff and food are amazing. The whole family loved it.

Kenneth Horinek

Friendly, Clean, and really enjoyed the good food at reasonable price.

Charles Godfrey

Know dave personally

James Cox

Awesome BBQ! The meat is done right and the sauces are great, something for everyone's taste.

Nisey Gail

Always LOVE the food at Famous Dave's! The ribs, brisket, baked beans, Cole slaw and corn muffins are all delicious! We always order the platter, and it's enough for an entire family with plenty to take home.

Derrick MN

Great place, good food, friendly staff. Will go back again.

cool kid

I worked there in the past and became a fan. I recently went there with my boyfriend and was told we had to wait 15-20 minutes. There were tables all over in the resturant open but we sat and waited for a few minutes. Then, two small parties came in and we're seating immediately. We won't be back again.

Jerry Borsh

Wife thought that it was good but a bit dry for me. Cornmeal muffins were top notch.

Mac Stearns

Always enjoy the food, I love the brisket. I had a work function there and forgot my phone. When I called them after work they informed me that they found it and held it for me. Thank you.

S. J.

Thank you Cynthia for excellent service. 1 my brisket dinner was the bomb

Jessie Davis

Pricey but great food would definitely recommend!

Karen Ringsven

I was craving Famous Dave's ribs!! Unfortunately, the last few times I've visited, the ribs have been overdone and dry. Disappointing :(

Ameiya Rose

The atmosphere along with the food is special. I enjoyed my time there.

Chris P

Great BBQ! I'd heard it was too saucy, but the Pork Spare ribs were FANTASTIC

H Tom

Good food and prices. Service can be a little slow when busy. Overall positive.

Corey Smiley

Don't ever not try this place during lunch time. I had the fastest service ever for lunch. I was in an hour in an hour. The location near me closed down.

Monica Tavares

Great place to have grilled food, the ribs were fantastic and also the kids meals. Great staff and is a kid-friendly place which is important to me.

Stephanie murray

I love famous Dave's I'm so sad that the Annapolis location is gone but I love the Georgia chop sandwich

Chris Klauer

Been here many times. Food is pretty good, the Mac and cheese being the best thing on the menu. Drinks are average. Service is usually on top of it.

Tyrone Bennett

Nice place

Mike Kister

Great service and server. Tasty food served hot.

Colleen Stone

I went here because it was close, right next to the hotel. However, I was surprised that the St. Louis ribs and brisket were done so well. I know BBQ is a big deal in Kansas City and I think this Famous Dave's definitely can compete with the other BBQ joints in the area.

Kevionna Lewis

Really wonderful food, has great sauces to choose from and amazing service

Roger Cherry

Food was great but the server must have been new

aron evans

Delicious food. Great staff. Quick service. Great prices.


Was pretty good was out of a lot of items. Our server was slow & it was after the dinner rush. Food was pretty good & was a good amount for the price. We would go back in hopes that the service has improved.

Nelson Caraballo

Great BBQ and atmosphere, plenty of tasty sauces to choose from. Plenty of space for an office going away lunch or other event.

Kamillah Lewis

Always a great experience. Excellent food. Excellent service!

P Williams

New to the area, and this has become one of my favorite places to eat. Always tasty!

Carol Griffin

The ribs were "Off the chain" Outstanding! I know where I will be going for ribs from now on! The sides like the coleslaw, were excellent as well.


Ordered the feast for two the forks came 10 mins after the food the chili 10 minutes later and the coleslaw just never made it won't be back waitress just simply wasn't paying attention to our table

Jen Bennett

My boyfriend and I have been to Famous Dave's 2 weekends in a row and the food was awesome. Austin was our bartender and his customer service and attentiveness was on point! We will be returning often!!!

April Tracey

This place is good for good BBQ. There is usually no waiting at the rainbow location. Its also a good place for kids. I like that u can also get either one big meal and share or get a larger meal for more than 2 people. This place is good for large family or just people that want to get together and not have to cook. There service is pretty fast as well.

Pam Canfield

Have always loved Dave’s, the bbq was wonderful as always. Had the feast for 2 and everything was done just right. Came early and it was quiet.

Linda Henry

Excellent service and great food

Bill Ward

Very good place to eat when it's not over packed with people

Thomas Fruchey

Food was good awful expensive

John Potter

Sweet tea! Food is always great my family says. The three stars is from the waitress. Not very helpful, very slow service honestly. I miss the omaha location because the service was much better. The food is sweet and tasty with an Abundance and loads of different BBQ sauces to try out. Lots of them are very sweet but that’s ok because they have a fire one as well.

Rebecca Horne

Great food

Darice Murray

Having heard that you haven't experienced Kansas City without eating some of Famous Dave's bar- b -que I was eager to try some. The St. Louis style ribs were tough but the beef brisket was delicious. I had to leave the table twice to ask for cutlery so we could eat our dinner and about a missing drink order. The entire experience was okay. If you choose to go I would recommend staying away from the St. Louis style ribs.

Bill Powers

Good food good service shopping center not convenient in and out. Can be a traffic headache.

Jeff Potts

As always, a great atmosphere for no matter what night! Love the BBQ too! Whether you mean too or will Enjoy your meal. Hot, Mild, or Sweet and Sassy! They got it here.

Samantha Moseley

Ordered the wing doubler and accidentally ordered boneless instead of traditional. They should not be called boneless wings as they are more the size of chicken bites for the $20 price. Not worth it. The cornbread muffins are good at least.

Hazel Martin

Great service but the food just wasn't up to par.

Daryl Tanner

Great tasting BBQ decent portions and service was ok.

Melissa Kleinhuizen

My daughter choose this restaurant after hearing about a meal served on a garbage can lid. The food and service were wonderful! Our favorites were the pulled pork and the praline sundae. The sincerity, kindness and helpful staff made our day (and my daughter's birthday extra special)! Thank you for a fantastic experience!

Rob Brown

Great food big portions and leftovers. Great atmosphere too

patrick jennings

GREAT place to eat. The to go order took a little long but the employees were awesome while waiting. Sunday happy hour crew thank you for the great food and company while waiting. We will see you soon.

Glen Henry

Didn't give me the food I asked for gave me but's of rib in stead of center cut like I ask But the customs service was polite .

Heidi Hart

Loved it.. They have a great lunch menu that's perfectly priced.

Kiara Wharton

The food was good. I had a spiked strawberry lemonade it was very good. We had a very nice server. She was very attentive especially since they were closing in 30 minutes.

Jessy Banninga

Best barbeque ever. I've gone here dozens of times and have always left satisfied. Anything with the Georgia chopped pork is always good (especially the nachos). Everyone in my family was disappointed when they took the BBQ chips off the menu a while back, but it looks like they've added them back on!

Tim Davis

Wasn't bad ordered the all American feast . The brisket was good , the chicken was alright was good n moist but didnt have any flavor, also the ribs were tuff but had good flavor

LeToya Chisholm

The food was good. I ordered the chicken tenders, catfish was only ok, the sauce with it was delicious. I also ordered the dirty rice and the beans. Both were only ok. The cornbread is sweet and scrumptious. The service was friendly and excellent.

Jose Contreras

Famous Dave's is just the best BBQ in the town and they have excellent references also God service best BBQ test that's why I love to bring save this delicious ribs at home

Kenneth Hendrickson

Slow service, food ok. Saw our server 3 times, onece after we sat there for 10 min. Once to bring our food, never returned with refill. And last to bring my check. No thanks.

Sam Fuller

Amazing customer service and the ribs were delicious. Turned my vegetarian wife into a carnivore.

David Keem

I think this place is always a very good value. BBQ is well prepared, sides are good and the special cocktails actually are. Service has always been above average.

Carl Schuett

My go-to quick BBQ joint in Bellevue. I love the corn bread muffins.

Gregory Easton

I had baby back ribs and brisket with fries and steamed broccoli. This food was perfectly seasoned and cooked. The flavor profile was perfection and did not need any additional sauce. The services was timely and courteous. The waiter checked in several times at what seemed perfect intervals. I would eat here often.

Patrick Therien

The food was very good, but the service was rather slow.

Philip Plastina

Pretty darn good! I must say I was hella skeptical about this place and i was wrong. Came in for dinner with a date and it was a good experience for the most part. My waiter was a little bit slow with the service and it took almost 20 minutes to get our cocktails which wasnt cool. The food came and it was delicious. I had the Famous Ribs and Chicken. I really like that there's six or seven sauces on the table that you can choose from. I even had leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Cheers.

Sherry Sundin

Famous Dave's is a tradition to visit on our way to Minneapolis or St Paul for an event. Their barbeque never disappoints and the staff is very friendly.

S J Russart

Where we were seated was drafty and cold. Food was not hot.

Pezzalynn Moon

Best brisket ever! Great service and super fast.. We will definitely be returning soon.

Elio Capelati Junior

It's a great place, but the Mac and cheese isn't good, and some times the brisket, that for me represents a BBQ, is served cold.

Adam Brooks

Mostly do like famous Dave's barbeque besides it's actually always expensive.

Sonoma Palms

Was really disappointed. The food was great but when it was time to pay they said my $100 goft cards did not go through. The manager listened to the balance on both cards and heard they had $100 each on them and still did not honor them. I had to pay with my debit card. Very. Unhappy

Pamela McCoy

Loved it! The chicken was so tender and juicy. They give you several sauces to try as well. The atmosphere was very comfortable and the servers were the best I've seen in a while. Great place for family dinners

Patti Bryson

Loved it. Best food on our trip of 1400 miles.


Excellent service from Courtney. Hickory chicken was delicious. Bread pudding was to die for. Restaurant is clean, bathrooms could use a little touch up. Overall a great experience as usual. Definitely worth every penny.

Pedro Tellez

Always Awesome Food!! Awesome People & Servers..... Respectfully CPL.P.M.Tellez U.S.M.C. (Vet) 1/9 - 2/1 S.T.A Semper Fi God Bless

Lower48 Traveling

Great place good food definitely recommend the banana pudding... able to park your semi bobtail too

Bill Chennault

Extremely bad. Bartender barely spoke English and the meal was littereally delivered cold.

ranger the border collie

I order a burger. How was it you ask? It was completely wet! I wanted to have it medium well it was made medium or something and the inside was very pink. The fries were good. And I got burnt ends and those were horrific. "Best ribs in the world" red Rock is wayyyy better. The pickles were so spicy I couldn't handle the taste!! The corn bread was good and so was the greens but everything else was horrificly bad!

Gary D

It was ok. Wasted 60 bucks on a meal for 2. Dry. Basically if you're tired of KFC buffalo wings its something different. Dont spend more than 20 bucks. Not worth it. I've tried it 3 times, a disappointing sums it up. Bbq isn't their thing. Maybe their other food is better. I won't order again and I wouldn't reccomend it to anyone. But it's probably personal choice.

Donald Beck Sr.

Great food great service

Aaliyah Goodloff

The food there is absolutely amazing. Everyone has postive attitudes and it made me feel like we were having a bbq in the backyard

Ken Wilkins

We have eaten here several times, usually with 4 in our party. The favorite of the table is the barbecue combo. All items on this combo are delicious. I like the spareribs the best and my wife likes the chicken. I also eat the corn on the cob that my wife skips. Sometimes I order a whole rack or a half rack of spareribs, depending on how hungry I am that day. We always enjoy our meals here and will definitely return.

Brian Swanigan

Good food, great blues.

Melissa Gates

The food was great as always! We had the All American BBQ Feast. It was more than enough food for our family of four. We had a wonderful server named Yosiph who did a great job taking care of us. We will definitely be back.

Codey Flagg

Delicious was in Branson for vacation and this place was amazing. big portions of delicious food definitely won't leave hungry here

Preshus Femm

Service was fast and the food was good

Wayne Butler

My wife and I had a baby shower for our daughter and the set up was great they showed up on time and was very professional. GREAT JOB Famous Dave’s in Columbia Maryland!!!!!!

Nateche Robinson

I was very surprised about my experience. Coming from Richmond, where we no longer have this restaurant, I was pretty disappointed. I ordered the 3 Meat combo, Brisket, Buffalo wings, Catfish, mac and cheese, mash potatoes and corn muffins. The brisket was dry and shriveled up. The catfish was gamey tasting. The mac and cheese looked and tasted like it had been sitting for hours. The wings and mashed potatoes were good. The food looked good, but can't say so much for the taste. My family members food were okay but they were cold. We ordered a dozen corn muffins and they were good, but also cold. Our waiter was Mike and he was great! He was very apologetic and even got a me a free dessert coupon for my next visit. This restaurant is definitely different from the one in Alexandria, Virginia.

Adrean Weldele

The food was good. Service was great!


My family and I always eat here when we go to the Branson Landing. Love their cornbread muffins. Never disappointed in the service either.

Scott Burt

We have not been in some time but food was good. And the service was top notch.

Heidi Brown

It's bad when you waited 20minutes after order your drinks and you have to go to the bar your self to get them and when you have to mix your own drink because they don't know how to make a drink. Then the ribs were just over cooked and rubbery. They really need to get more help and do better training.

Tiffany Saunders

Worst and slowest service I’ve ever experience. My husband and I came in on a Thursday. Waited to be seated for 20minutes. Waited 10 minutes once seated for my waitress to come. Waited another 35-40 minutes for our food and the meat was very salty. Terrible service and last time coming to this location.

Shawn Dorsey

The food is always amazing and I love the staff!

Anthony Galati

This place is soo damn good!

James Brewster

Everything and staff was very good but the burger was the worst hamburger I have ever had I didn't think you could ever ruin bacon but you did with the hot peppers and BBQ sauce sorry but never again

Michelle Mora

We will not be going back to this location. We waited a full hour to be seated. Our name on the list was skipped over by numerous parties and we were only seated after complaining. After we were seated it took 50 minutes for our food to come to our table and that was after complaining yet again. Then while eating our food several of our parties plates had raw meat in it. Our server only refilled our cups one time and was not attentive to our party at all. It was overall a terrible experience. If I could give negative stars I would.

Cindy Josaitis

The food was pretty good. The server was very nice.

Chuck Carlin

The food and Service are both impeccable, however, the prices have gotten "out of hand ".

Dave V

Awesome food. Our waitress was so nice and helpful. We had a party of 10 and she handled everyone perfectly. Great place, great food. I'll be back %100

Claudia Reyes

Always a great experience. The food is really good and the staff is friendly. Never had to wait to be seated unless it's Mother's or Father's Day. Place it's pretty big and comfortable.

Sherron Dunn

I put in an online order. The pick up time was for 2:30pm. It took over an hour for them to find the order in their system. Then another 30 min. for them to get the order together. I don't fault the staff. I blame Famous Dave's main office. For the holidays there should have been a better system for the staff to work with. On the holidays no online order due to an online orders get pushed back 90 min. before coming through your system.

Chad Hahn

The food and service were top notch! I will definitely go back next time I'm in the area!

Danielle Hughes

Great food great service

Noreen Annabelli

Our waitress tiffany was awesome and your hostess didnt get her name was sooo nice!

Chester Cadogan

Went to dinner with the family for the Fourth of July celebrations. They were real packed by their staff was calm and very professional. They got us seated before the scheduled time and the meal as always was well tasty

Rick Covert

Great food. We had baked potato with pork and beef brisket and all the fixins.

Andrew Uden

Such a rollercoaster of a meal! First they were out of burnt ends, but I got the Texas brisket instead. It was great! But my wife ordered the salmon and it was cold and undercooked when it arrived at the table.

Chris Wright

The All American Feast was delicious!

Danny K

Not aware of pick-up order. Got baked and fried chicken mixed-up.

Cathy Selinger

Great service Great food!

Robert Caruso

Worst. service. Ever. Sitting here for 20 minutes, no service or water.

Troy Hilton

Excellent ribs, very tender. Delicious sides. Always a good meal and a good time.

Rita Rita

Busy busy busy for the holiday! Staff was friendly and moved as quickly as they could. Ribs were worth the wait. I called ahead twice and my order was ready each time I arrived! Sad that they closed the one in Owings Mills

Marianne Brundies

Excellent service and food

Sam Beste

BBQ chips are amazing. Everything is a decent price for quality food

Scott Graves

Great Food And Awesome Service

Melceenia Ball

Excellent food and service. Great view of the river.

Helen Garrett

Eating in good. Prefer not to order take out

Barbara Rainey

ordered the pulled chicken sandwich and apples as a side. the chicken tasted old and was definitely not smoked. the apples were obviously from a can with a little cinnamon sprinkled on them. very disappointing. just throw a few chickens in with the other meat and actually smoke it. on a positive note our waitress NIkki was delightful.

Mike C

Went in the other day on a Thursday night. Sat at the bar and the bartender had her back to me for the whole 5 minutes I was there she was playing on the keyboard and talking to a customer on the other side of the bar. Had enough and went to sit at a table. Waited like 10 minutes for someone to come over and he said he'd be right with me...LOL. I ended up waiting another 5 minutes and he still didn't come over so I left. Didn't even get a chance to eat. Very disappointing service. Won't be back.

Two Trees

Very good BBQ. Entertaining waiter. Lots of cool stuff to look at while drinking beer and munching on tater chips.

Brandi Troxtel

Great food! I had pulled pork & rib tips. Food was hot when it arrived. My husband had ribs & catfish fingers. Good atmosphere. Friendly host & waitress.

Jason Cole

Tasty meat, nice laid-back atmosphere.

Tessa Vogel

Great food

Jonathon Hurt

Food was amazing, service was great! Had a new drink before the other was done

Mike Weiler

Mom decided she wanted barbecue on Mother's Day, so I took her to Famous Dave's in Plymouth. It was too busy and crowded to stay, so we took our food to go. As always Famous Dave's does a very good job in their smokehouse and the staff is always friendly and helpful...

lisa calkins

Alright BBQ, not world changing. But for the area it’s nice.

Lee Weber

Good BBQ.

Tiffany Norton

Food was ok but the service was slow. Not as good as it used to be. The desert was fabulous once we got it

Lisa Grinnage

Our server, Jason, was excellent. The food was delicious.

Nicholas YouTube #Wheeltalk

Great service and food.

Jody Cantwell

Good service. Brisket and beans were awsome. Rib tips were burned too much for me.

Ryan Rum Runner

Bruh. The All American meal is the bees knees and they do it well. All the sauces? Awesome. But the review is not just about the food. The service was great. Always is. I've been here more than a few times and the people are great. The location provides great patio scenery of the lake. The restaurant is clean and the prices are reasonable. Go there now.

Denise Boever

Our waiter was also the bartender. He kept up with his busy it was and was very pleasant. Food as always was great.

Mary Abboud

Their food is so good and service is equally as good.

Charles Roeth

Favorite place with my grandkids. They like the Mac and cheese and pull pork....I enjoy the Salmon. Everyone wins.

Michael Kennedy

Great food always, fast service, I just love B B Q.

Dirk Diggler

One of the best bbq places in KC. The rib tips are my favorite with the sweet and zesty sauce

Steve Harvey

This is one of our favorite Famous Dave's locations! This location takes pride in preparing the meals well and gives you generous proportions!

Amanda Muchmore

Waiter was great, food prices are high.

Kim Harwell

Barbecue was great. Service was good. Beans need a lot of work. They were pretty bland.

Daniel Haffelder

Good food and staff was great

Paula Marion

My husband and I truly enjoyed our meal this evening ! Our waiter Nathaniel was very polite, informative and attentive to details. My carmelized salmon cooked on a wooden plank was absolutely delicious. Everyone from the hostess, the waiters, and the cooks great service!

K9 Thomas

The best barbecue I've ever had at a restaurant and PERFECT service.

Alexandra Autolitano

My first time here, we were served by lovely staff and I ordered a basket of wings with Wilbur's Revenge sauce - let me tell you!! The name is no joke. Wings were crispy and awesome! Next time I'll come for the BBQ, but don't pass on the wings just because it's a BBQ place.

Rachael Foster

Very good food and service, it is a little pricey though.

Steve Homer

Best place for barbecue in Knoxville. Have choice of different sauces at table.


Disappointed, skimpy. 9/20/19 in addition, I was contacted in regard to this failure and the offered Wilbur bucks which I never received!

Susan Carver

Food good service fast


I thought they had very good food! I loved their ribs. They have a very homie grill atmosphere. The waiters were very nice and helpful. The feasts are very nice for a whole family. There was 10 of us and plenty left over. My cousin highly recomends there mustard like bbq sauce.

Kevin Dixon

I ordered the salmon, and it was very dry!! Over cooked!!

Brian Briggs

Good food nice place

Duce Gayle

I love their greens remind me of the South

Dr. Lonny Wortham

The food was amazing... The customer service was excellent. They are military friendly, if you present your ID they will offer you a discount.

Brennan Welch

Great food and had really nice waiter that made sure our orders were correct and drinks were filled.

Joe Conley

Service was just mediocre at best. We arrived reasonably late in the evening Friday. There was no line and plenty of parking. We were seated right away. The waitress came to our table right away for the drink order and to bring us free chips. She took our drink order and then we didn't see her for quite some time. All in all I wasn't very impressed with the food. It was of decent quality, but everything was spicy. I ordered chopped pork which I enjoy dry or with a sweeter sauce. It came with sauce already on it, which I wasn't expecting. They had 5 types of sauce on our table, which confused me as to why they put sauce on it ahead of time. The pork was good, but I didn't care for any of the sauces. The baked beans were also spicy. The waitress was very slow. She was only serving 3 tables, but seemed overwhelmed, and she had help from others delivering food for her most of the time. All in all it wasn't terrible, but also not as good as I hoped for. I had eaten previously at one of these in Nashville, and I enjoyed it far better. My wife who enjoys more spicy foods, felt the ribs were way over cooked and dry and also said there was just too much pepper on everything. Restrooms were clean and overall the place had a decent feel, but didn't meet expectations for the money, and I threw half the meal away, because I just could not eat it.

Verntina FridayConner

AWESOME, Had Always Enjoyed My Meal.. And Great Service As Well..

Ben Petersen

Everything's good except sometimes the chicken is a little dry but the good seasoning on the skin makes up for it

Denise Ford

Good food great customer service

Scott Moser

Good food and decent service.

Amelia Bickler

Delicious food and friendly staff. I eat a lot of takeout with my busy schedule, and they are very good about having it ready to go for me!

mblairmom .

Always great food. The staff is always super friendly. A little pricey-but truly worth it. The food is awesome & the portions are nice. I found out today that they have great chili.

Varry Doyle

Get the trash lid platter you can't go wrong

Jason Chaney

Good option if you like BBQ,

Julie Boysen

I ordered brisket I don't know if I've had brisket that just didn't seem like it had a good rub or it wasn't marinade is in the rub enough meat was really Bland

Cindy Sallee

Great food, generous portions, excellent service!

Amy Phillips

They were out of the 1st appetizer we tried to order. The 2nd one we order ranch & got some other sauce. I the meantime the servers switched as 1 was too busy. We ordered a virgin bloody mary & they were out of that. Burger was to be well done it was medium. Not a fan!! If I could give 0 stars that's what this would get. Tge server did nothing to compensate the extra time we had to wait for the extra burger!!

Martin Cabela

Has a rustic farmhouse decor and Christmas lights hanging inside & out. The food and service were good. Had the brisket. Liked several of the barbecue sauces on the tables. Fries were like home fries, corn muffins are delicious. Clean restrooms. Full bar. Pepsi products!

Liz Cox

The wings were great! We say at the bar and had great conversation with the bartender.

Rachel Martin

This was my first time at Famous Dave's. The food was good. It came out really quickly too. I wish I could have ordered multiple things from the menu, but the Georgia Chopped Pork and the Burnt Ends were delicious. I enjoyed trying all of the sauces provided at the table and ended up mixing the sweet and sassy with the rich and sassy on my chopped pork. No sauce needed on the burnt ends. I wasn't a fan of the mac and cheese, but really liked the creamy Cole slaw and Wilbur beans. Looking forward to trying more of the menu.

Dawn Vyse

Don't cook in this heat when the ribs are smoked and they are great

Savage USAF Scott

Plenty of food and appetizers with interesting decor that has a picnic kinda table eatery style. The sauces are excellent on just about anything. My brisket slices were tender and fell apart. Ribs have a nice char flavor with a firm chew on the meat on the 9 bones I had. Not a fall of the bone sort of meat. Cornbread muffin and beans were top notch! The waitress here make sure that our drinks were refreshed and checked on our table a couple of times. Fun for a lunch table of four people if you like to all enjoy extra sides etc...bring your appetite and your wallet it's worth it if your having a craving for BBQ. I'm not a fan of soggy corn

Callen Walters

Didn't receive all items ordered. We asked for them again, then still didn't arrive.


Took 45 extra minutes beyond what told for pick up and the place was empty.


My brisket and pork were mediocre, but they have great bread pudding and hot sauces. An immersive environment as well. Great for large parties or date night.

Kristi Preston-Barnes

Great bbq and relaxed atmosphere. The burnt butz are heavenly for those that like their pulled pork cubed. The BlackBerry bbq sauce isnt too sweet and not spicy juusst right. The bread pudding was also delish. Pralines and carmel sauce just slightly warmed is a beautiful treat by itself. May have to go in just for that!!! Great night

Robert McGee

Delicious, as usual!

Elia Inda

Food was great, fast and ready for pick up when I arrived.

Aric Way

Good food. I never leave hungry.

Jeff White

I am giving Famous Dave’s two stars not for their quality of food, but rather the underperforming service. I called in a rather large order on Saturday and was told that the order would be ready for pick-up in twenty minutes. I arrived twenty-five minutes later and was told it was not quite ready. After ten minutes, I inquired about my order and the nice gentleman said there was an issue with the steamer and the green beans I ordered had to be remade. I finally got my order after another twenty minutes, only to discover that they shorted the cornbread muffins and did not include the whole roasted chicken. After another ten minute wait, the order was complete, paid in full, and not an apology around for having to wait an extra forty-five minutes. The food was good, but the service needs some serious attention.

chris tunberg

Food was good, service just so, so. Nice waitress just a off night

Chris Walter

The food here is always good, but the atmosphere is lacking. Only having one main room means that it can be loud and off putting at times. For example, when seated near the front you get to hear all the drinks being made, ice being refilled, employees messing around, and people coming in and out to get take out orders. It's not terrible, but it's not the way I'd like to eat my dinner.

Leon Moore

The TEXAS barbecue is NOT TEXAS barbeque!!!... In fact it's not good by any standards! ... I was raised in San Antonio Texas.. .And I promise you this is not at all what Texas barbecue taste like... First of all it was dry and hard like beef jerky... Then they covered it in a terrible sauce that tasted like a salt lick...and I like salty food but this was way too salty!...and if you're going to call it Texas barbecue use Mesquite smoke instead of Hickory... We ordered at the take out counter and it took 45minutes to get our food.. And the place wasn't busy because there was a snow storm...then when we got home we noticed they didn't give us our corn muffins that we paid for... The only reason I'm giving them one star is because I have to... WORST BARBECUE EVER!!!

James Roemer

This place has went down hill the staff was great but the quality of food is just not there anymore...

Jackie Moretti

Love eating at Famous Dave's but today was not like it usually is. I ordered burnt ends which are normally amazing. Today they were terrible. I hope they didn't change their recipe!

Deborah Carroll

$48.00 too expensive for the amount of food we received and the banana pudding was horrible

Terry Shipley

Food is always tasty. Prices are very reasonable. Exceptional customer service every time. My 91 yo Dad called them "Fancy Dan's" because of how well they treated us. Very strong supporters of our military. Recently increased their discount for veterans. Highly recommend you give them a try if you like BBQ.


Food is always good. I love the "Devils Spit" sauce!

Sydney Watts-Atchison

If I could give a zero, I would. Called to place a to go order, they told me 20 minutes. I arrived 20 minutes after placing the order and had to walk around the restaurant looking for someone because there was no one at the to go desk. Upon my arrival they had not even started making my order. I ordered nachos no beans. I received nachos with no beans, no chili, no cheese sauce and stale chips. It was within 30 minutes of closing, if you don't have it...just say that. Called and spoke with the manager asked them to remake it, this time I found one or two beans from the chili and still no cheese sauce. I am so annoyed and will be calling to speak with the general manager in the morning.

Rudy Natera

Sometimes it's better than other times.

Pamela Phillips

Food was great, service was horrible. Would have liked to try the bread pudding, but 15 minutes after I asked for the dessert menu, I flagged down the waitress for our bill instead.

Sonja Robinson

Very nice

Danny Carstensen

Good service everyone has smiles

Ron Black

Famous Dave's BBQ is always a crowd pleaser. Laid back atmosphere, friendly servers, and great food. The menu has plenty of choices for different tastes and the price is reasonable. Good desserts if you have room for them.

Michael Shanklin

Food was good service great

alysha lee

It was really good and our server was really great

Lu Wick

I think the pricing is way over priced. Chicken was cold. Server never came around to refill drinks.

Evan Oyler

The food was delicious and the staff was friendly. A warning for anyone considering getting a full rack of ribs: that thing is huge! The corn muffins are amazing as well as the sweet corn. There are many barbecue sauces to try. My favorite was Georgia Mustard.

Jenny Weimer

Good food. Good service.

Charles Akers

It's slap your momma good

George Cook

Famous Dave's have always been one of our favorite places to eat for years. However, we just ate at the Greenwood location, and the service was terrible. They were not busy, but the service was soooooo slow. The food (as always) tasted good but was cold by the time we got it. Had to go to different waite staff to get drink refills, then waited forever on getting the check. I will only go to the one off Michigan Ave on north side of Indy from now on.

pat kruger

This restaraunt used to be our go to place- loved the food and atmosphere. I don't know what happened but it took a turn for the worse.To day we placed an order to go and doubt if we'll ever go back. Our order of chopped pork was 25% fat, had sauce on it ( we have never had sauce on it when served nor did the description indicate it) temperature was tepid at best, and couldn't use my giftcard. This is a culmanation of the downturn wd have been noticing over time. Too bad but I work hard for my money so I'll find some place that deserves it.

Patricia Simpson

Love the food there. Ribs are my favorite. Ut ya gotta get the banana pudding.

Cindy Shaw

Food was ok, brisket was kinda dry, definitely wouldnt stop again or I'd try something different, the wait was exceptionally long, but they did bring our table a complimentary appetizer and apologized for the wait

Donald Allen

Famous Dave's ribs speak for themselves. I'm glad they suggested them.

Corey Crowder

Paid 6 dollars for banana pudding and they gave me a bowl full of whipped cream

Sasha Casper

We went to Famous Dave's for my birthday. It was too cold to eat comfortably. My daughter's food came out wrong and took a while for the right food to come. My husband wasn't impressed with his brisket and fish this time. Last time he said it was amazing. I enjoyed my meal, though. The BBQ pork is so delicious and the lunch specials gave us an affordable meal.

Keith Robinson

It was my first time there there food was amazing definitely will be back

Ginger Roddick

Staff is very friendly, prompt service

Sarah Henderson

Food was fresh and staff was nice. Wish they had more specials to make it friendly on your wallet. I love the baked potato meal and the ribs on the menu are good with lots of meat. They have tuesday free kids meals but only up to age 11 i believe...

Penny Mcreynolds

Service not so great nice on phone but not in person. Skimped on sides for 2 give us size for 1 serving to feed 2 had to add extra meat to be enough to feed 2 they do not deliver from any food delivery service to any our neighborhood from either Indianapolis location had to uber just to pick up.

Oscar Gonzalez

Amazing ribs

Vaughn Weber

My wife and I love this place. We go here 9 out of 10 times we are at the Commons in Nobelsville. She loves the drinks and appetizers. I love the food. The meat is great.

Bonnie Licklider

Funny to watch the staff complain about how they get seated. Alcohol drinks are absolutely EXPENSIVE ! The rib tips are great the first time around. During all you can eat on Thursdays. The quality goes down after the first round!

Pamala Daniels

Service wasn't friendly Food wasn't what I was expecting far as taste.Not a fan Sorry

1sufesighing madwi

I forgot to ask for the sauce

Kinney Konnect

Floor was a bit click, I'm on crutches but food and service were great.

Carmen Hall

Great food and great service. We came from Ky family reunion and always pick this restaurant to meet.

Patrice Read

From Texas and tasted many a BBQ but Famous Dave's taste can't be beat.

David Morris

food was great and the service

Forest Chapman

Great Barbecue! Excellent Service!

Matthew Schrimpf

Good food friendly staff

Lynn Davenport

Good service...good value

Drew L

My favorite bbq chain! Great food and service. The menu never disappoints, and I leave with leftovers. Great for a quick meal or the whole family. Highchairs are available along with accessible parking, seating, and entrance.

Levi Armstrong

Food was delicious, service was real cordial, and the food was served real quickly after my order was promptly placed. Two thumbs up!

Clark Falcione Jr.

Food was great. Will definitely come again

Aaron Eggers

Great service and the food was great! The Cole slaw was exactly how I wanted it and it is is pretty much the only restaurant that did it correctly (though some people may like it a different way). Got the two combo meat platter and it was delicious! The cornbread was good too! Server was nice and always came to check on us. Great time here! Hopefully will be back sometime!

Tanika Patrick

Dining in = perfect. Carry out = hit and miss

Debi McPheeters

Had a delightful view dinner and Birthday party for Cousin Sue! Service and food was very good, especially for a large table. We wiill definitely be eating again at Famous Dave's.

Steven Everage

Best bbq around!

Carly Guild

Great food great service! Never disappointed


Great place to eat service was super great everything was done quick and the waitress was great on checking on you to make sure you had everything

Robert Lipinski

Over all not bad but not very good either. We had sample platter. I asked for boneless wing to be in very mild barbq. Got buffalo wings smothered in some barbecue sauce that was not very good. Ribs are far from being "best ribs" as they advertise. Had better ones in Applebees. As far as service goes. Waitress was not too happy that she had to work. At least it looked like it. So overall experience I am giving 3 out 5 stars because place was not bad on cleanliness and there was more than enough food on the plate. However as far as the taste goes,, not very good at all.

Keith O

Good food with quick service the day I visited. Texas Brisket sandwich was good and potato salad was tasty. Seating was comfy at the bar, bartendar was cheerful. I couldnt help noticing the Genre of music playing was kind of all over the place. By the time I'd finished eating it was starting to annoy me slightly but I wasnt planning on staying long anyhow. Currently if you install the Famous Daves app on your phone you can try a sandwhich for free. (Works!)

Ken Ostert

Food was good. Server was friendly but didn't pay much attention to us despite the fact that they weren't busy. Had to wait 10+ minutes for a refill of my drink, he even walked by to check on another table and walked back to the kitchen without offering a refill.

Abby G.

I like the decor, and the staff isn't remarkable but also isn't bad. Good barbecue.

Muted Xpressions

This barbecue joint just isn't that impressive! I think I may have liked it more when I was a swine eater however I ordered BBQ Beef Brisket which was mad salty along with a side of french fries and corn on the cob. I'm sad to report that the fries where the star! It stayed warm and crispy until I made it home. The corn needed some attention and it was much better. I'm happy to report that I will not be returning. I do not need a final confirmation. This place blows! Some people swear by it! Two thumbs down. Wait make that one thumb and one to the side for the slimming french fries. Yum.

Joe Murphy

Great food and great service. I love the chopped pork.

b fle

I took my significant other here for a special occasion and it did not go well. She had ordered the pick 2 and had pulled pork as one of her options. We received the food and it looked good but then she started to chew and said something is wrong. She had found a 2 inch piece of plastic in her pork. The manager handled it well and was very attentive and stated that he would notify the owner and that the owner would call my significant other the following day. She called the next few days a few times and all she was told is that someone contacted her to discuss and left a message and no one ever did. Very disappointed in the way this was handled by the owner and I will never return. Plastic is pulled pork makes no sense! On a side not the waiter was very responsive and listened as well and did a wonderful job with service.

C. K.

The beef brisket was one of the WORST I’ve had. Way way too salty, and overcooked. The UW Hospital cafeteria on Highland serves a better beef brisket dinner for $6.50 instead of $17/lb. Sadly really really disappointed, I hoped for better,

Gregory Steinhorst

Lots of food for your money. Friendly helpful staff. Clean homey atmosphere. Well worth the time.

Steve Pressnell

Food was very good, it took 25 minutes just to order the food... We didn't get our food for OVER and Hour ~15 !?!?! Wait staff were nice, but slow... Considering the place wasn't that full for a Saturday night.... Now I know why! Could have cooked it at home faster....

Amisia D

Food done went down hill. Managers are rude and wont give refunds or free food.

gato rino

Good food, good people

Jana Bell

We had always heard about Famous Dave's. So we were in the area and decided to stop in. Definitely was not a mistake. I had a pulled chicken BBQ sandwich and Cole slaw. Boyfriend had pulled pork and brisket. The meats were so juicy and full of flavor! We loved the different sauces available. The prices are very good. We had a great little server. We will certainly be back. It's a 90 minute drive but most definitely worth it! We will be taking our friends to stop in as well.


Very good! Excellent food!

Buck Lowe

Good food,good service

Shirley Princetta-Jeane King

My my my never would have thought I would have a bad experience at this restaurant! HAIR! Yes, hair on our ribs. Not once but twice in one visit smh Look before you eat! I will never eat their again! Never!!!!!

Lisa Allison

Love this restaurant great food great staff they went above and beyond to help us with an elderly lady who was with us highly recommend

Daniel B

We always enjoy our meal at Dave's. Good food, nice menu, good service

John T.L Hulstine

We had a fine experience here. There was a bit of a rough start and it took a while to be waited on (10-20 min for drinks or anything). Eventually, my family and I were waited on by a diligent server and the rest of the evening went well. The food was decent and I would recommend you try a introductory starter of delicious cheese curds! :)


The food was alright, nothing special. The waiter brought my colleagues bill out, and he went to pay his bill and she wouldn't accept it. Terrible service. Do not recommend.

Janice Lamm

We ordered the catering for our Christmas party this past year and it was phenomenal! The food tasted great, the portion sizes were correct, and we really felt like we got our money's worth! Whether you are just ordering for delivery or having them cater your event, I would recommend 100%!

Bob Kirkwood

Great bbq, great service, food was ready before you think it will be

Dawn Creasey

it took over 45 minutes to get our food and The pork seemed like it had been under the lights for minute, lukewarm and the meat was hard like it had been out awhile. Not impressed.

Angela Mcknight

It was all good except for the BBQ ribs we got that day. We couldn't get anyone we came with to eat them. The rest of the food was great and the waitress was great.

Dwayne Pruitt

Food was good and service was great

Shawn Hudachko

Amazing food, friendly staff and fun all around. Great for groups or family!!

Jijun Chen

Among all the famous Dave's in Indy, I like this one best.

Steve Rulo

Great food and service, reasonable prices

Marcia Bortoletto

Very good place , not bad price, friendly servers

Kelly Nagel

Good food

Drew Wilson

Great Food and Service

Jon Westcott

The food was OK, not great, definitely not terrible. BBQ is a very personal matter of taste. Famous Dave's just doesn't do it for me. Restaurant was clean, wait staff was excellent and professional.

Kevin Koontz

Large portions of good bbq.

Paul Bueno

Came here on Veteran's day for the free meal and was very impressed with the quality of the food and service.

Kat b

Food was delicious and waiter was very nice and thorough


Excellent BBQ! Server she was awesome. Great place.

Stewart Turner

Very good food and service.

Kinshasa Dec 9 2003

Very delicious food, friendly staff! Will be visiting again in near future!!

Gaylene Norfleet

When preparing food you need to covered up your long hair or pin it up.

Charles Frelix

Food great, services great, from Papa point of view with three grandkids on hand (3,4 &6).they made it fun. Thank you for that.

Timothy Berdelman

Lunch menu has good deletions at a good value. Good food

Ledrena Girton

The food was wonderful! The server was great. He was very helpful with the menu

Anthony Bair

Pretty good BBQ but then again there's really no where else to go for BBQ.

Tyler Greenwald

They messed up our Togo order, completely forgot all our sides for the feast. And not to mention they forgot the baby back ribs we ordered! Terrible service

Kathleen Mathes

Soooo delish & leftovers too. Sweet!

Katrina Crist

Don't waste your money here...ordered carry out rib dinner and 2 extra sides...$45.00. Sides were only a tablespoon in the container...rude cashier. Never going back

Eldon Quesinberry

First timer - what have I been missing , good stuff can't wait to go back.

Becca Monroe

Had a great waiter and food was very delicious.

James Kamau

Visited the place when I was picking a load in Indiana I dint understand if it is what I ordered which was not good but I dint like it...

Robert Knotts

I wish there was a way to give negative stars. This place has really gone downhill. We got there about an hour and a half before close on a Sunday evening and it was dead. There was one other family in there. You could tell everyone was just ready to go home. Our waitress was sure to make sure we knew she had had a long day. So we start to order drinks and my wife and I both order Minute Maid lemonade (because that's the only lemonade we actually like and it was listed as an available drink on the menu). The waitress tells us we can't have it because they now have their fresh made lemonade and the Minute Maid lemonade is only for children when they cater or do parties. We asked to see the manager....after she walked by us at least once she finally came over and told us that what the waitress said was true and that it was a corporate decision and their regional manager was enforcing it. After much ado about nothing they brought us out two Minute Maid lemonades. After all the drama and with the clearly prevailing attitude that we were keeping them from being able to leave early I did not trust that they wouldn't mess with the drinks or our food. We paid for our drinks and left without touching them and we will never go back. And after the Regional Managers paltry response I can see why his people behave they way they do. I used to love this place, but no more. City Barbecue will get my business.

Tyrone Pressley

Order wasn't right. No effort to resolve the issue.


Best BBQ in town. Service can be lacking at times.

Nyeisha Mcghee

Famous Dave's customer service was great but food was just ok I got the burnt ends and chicken. The chicken was moist but definitely needed more seasoning, and the burnt ends didn't taste good. Why no beef ribs everyone doesn't eat pork.

Tom Shedosky

Best barbecue in the midwest (other than mine).

Rocky LaRouge

Great people, grear food, fantastix portion sizes! Sam and Nancy (I think? Really nice lady) are awesome. Sit at the bar!

Robert Myers

Great food! And i do mean great! Also great service worth more than 5 stars if u ask me

Bill fischer

Horrible service. Just horrible, I didn't stick around for the food. Not crowded at all. Given a seat and forgotten about.

Tina Gotwalt

The Food was amazing and so was the service! Our waiter was really patient with my nephew who was trying to make a decision on what to eat, he made suggestions and jokes and was handling my nephew really well. We Loved it and would recommend it to everyone

Eddie Tatum

They taste just like the one in Arkansas when I come back to las Vegas i will be back to eat here

Paul Cantrell

Great food, great service, and wonderful atmosphere. It is right on the river in Branson, MO.

Glenn Sadler

Good bbq for a chain

Roxana Moran

The food is delicious, I always go for the ribs, the meat is just delicious and they have a variety of side dishes. The sauces are great as well

Lori Guthmiller

Love this place! Food is always very good and the service was excellent! Definitely one of my favorite places to eat.

Bert F.

The hostess seated us and we waited and waited and waited for service. Eventually flagged down the "manager" and finally placed our order. Service is horrendous at best. A few friends recommending Dickie's across the bridge so that may be the cure.

Scott Anderson

It's pretty decent bbq. The burnt buttz is particularly tasty.

Brian/Lesa Winegar


Jacqueline D

Their customer service is AWESOME!!! I’ve ordered takeout from here several times. When I got home I realized, (Twice) I had a mistake with my food. After calling to inform them, without hesitation they replaced my food for one situation and gave coupons for another. Jillian was very considerate to make sure I was satisfied with my replacement food. Both managers, Don and Jillian were exceptional, that makes all the difference!!!

Jane Harris

I was not impressed. The waitresses were understaffed for a Saturday evening. Burnt ends were fatty, beans too peppery to eat, and hot pickles were placed on my plates and asked them not to be served. The waitress tried very hard to do her job.

Michael Patane

Wife, daughter, and I decided on the spur of the moment to go to Famous Dave's and get barbecue for dinner. When we got there we were happy to see that there was no line in that the host showed us directly to a table. He even had a good sense of humor. We decided to sit in the bar area where Tina was our server. She has an excellent personality and took care of all our dining needs. We ordered the All-American platter, which came served on a trash can lid, and was more food than any of us could eat, but we tried. After we were done eating, Tina cleared our table and brought us dessert. My wife and daughter liked the beans, I did not. All three of us liked the ribs, brisket, chicken, corn on the cob, and biscuits. All in all, the meal was excellent! If you want good barbecue, stop at this location and say hi to Tina. You will find her behind the bar.

Todd Brier

April, Morgan and Mike are really awesome. They have great staff that is super knowledgeable about BBQ and really know how to make you feel like you're at home.

אתה ברטון

I decided to give them a second try because this chain usually has pretty decent service and food. Firstly, we sat for over 15 minutes before we got a server, then she came to our table with a really nasty disposition. That’s when we got up and left. No one service or food is THAT good where I am going to tolerate being treated that way as a customer. From my previous review: Horrible food and service. Small portions on the catfish fingers.

Aj W

I'm rating dessert only. I've been going here about 2 years just for their bread pudding. It's delicious, they have downsized it a bit, but it still taste delicious. I'm not a fan of whip cream but that comes with the dish.

Cindie Hoge

Called in at 3:45pm for 3 bread puddings to be ready at 4:30. Arrived at 4:35pm, paid, waited 15 minutes for them to make my order. They have gone so far down hill. A couple years ago, my order would have been ready and waiting. Something needs to be changed. Good thing I didn't order any meals.

Mike Collins

Great food at a fair price. Waitress was great but was slow being seated while seeing several empty tables.

Sharran Wilson

Food was great! We had a wonderful waitress that took very good care of us My favorite place. Oh yeah I had leftovers and was able to enjoy the food again when I got home.


Food here is definitely well priced but it can shift in quality from nice tender roast chicken to ribs tougher then a dry steak. The service is really nice and polite the whole time and most of the sauces are nice. Its not amazing but its a good alternative to the red robin nearby.

Gina Kaufman

Saturday 330 pm not many peep. Hostesses/ seaters ignored us for 6 minutes while they laughed about what someone in the kitchen did. And what the one was doing that evening. Service was excellent. Food was very good.

Holly Hurn

We came in later of the evening. Service was okay, other than the fact none of our party received drinks with ice in them. Apparently the time of the evening we showed up (830 pm) was too late for them to refill their ice machines. We have always enjoyed this restaurant until now.

Allen Bailey

Great lunch good service. BTW, I too better than suggested on your bill. I am offended by that, just saying.

nick blieu

I've had good service each time I've been here. The food is pretty good and the portions are large. I can share a rack of ribs with my girlfriend and eat for around $30 for both of us.

damian roberts

The food was awesome I recommend the rack of baby back ribs yum oh and FAMOUS JERAD SEIFERT was the best server EVER polite, got everything perfect, and was a complete joy to have met

Mary Bogue

Ribs are great

Ruthann Alcorta

No prob. The best here in Davenport.

Wendell Clare

Best BBQ in town

Mary Johnson

Brandon was our waiter. He made us feel welcome and gave excellent service. The food tasted fresh and delicious.

Santanita Adriana

Thank you management for addressing my concern.

Jason Key

The food was delicious and VERY plentiful!

Margaret Queen

Awesome service, great food & the prices are very affordable.

Wayne Jobe

Good food and friendly service..

Frank Bruno

Food and service is great.... Music changed with the remodel. The new music genre sucks. Problably the new manager is a 90' music yuppy. Go back to Stevie Ray Vaughn and Texas style rock & blues...

Janice Cathcart

Food was very good, fast service, ribs were very meaty!

John Tompkins

Best long island iced tea I have ever had and the BBQ was good to

Edward Hardee

Enjoyed the BBQ. Great atomsphere. Loved food.

Chad Leier

Good food and service.

Nikki Owens

100 STARS FOR TAYLOR!!! 3 stars for that tiny scoop of mac n cheese with CORN

Justin Sharp

If you want to eat a lot of pig, this the place to go. We thoroughly enjoyed Famous Dave's. Great scenery, great view if you're by the windows, and really good service.

thomas herrmann

Good food good service friendly atmosphere

Paladino Live Productions

Always great food, and the service is pretty solid

Suzanne Sadowski

Slow service, loud restaurant, no elbow room, over-priced food, and when it does arrive, it all tastes the same. 35 minutes after, debilitating stomach cramps and diarrhea for the next 36 hours. My whole family experienced this! What happened to Famous Dave's? I'll never go back!

Art Fernandez

Different locations different results ... This time the ribs were dry and smaller... Everything else was OK chopped pork small portion for the money ... Sorry Dave's this was not an impressive visit... Service was good however ... Just not impressed with the quality of the food . If you pay 23.00 for a combo it should at least have 1 out of the 2 choices right.

jj driven

Worst slab of ' ribs ' I have ever had. They were old and had a terrible texture... DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY

Emily milly

Very good service and delicious food really enjoyed

Chelsey Randall

Our waiter was so nice and he talked to my 7 year old son as an adult. We always love going here, the staff is always so nice and polite. Highly recommended!

Sheree Jolley

Delicious and fast to the table. Both the service and food here are great. The amount of food to price ratio is good, and you will probably end up with something to take home. The catfish strips are a must try.

Debbie Bowen

I enjoy BBQ food and this restaurant fits the bill! The service is not bad either.

Jesus Viera

That burger was great even the brisket was nice and tender

Jillian Hohensee

The food was fantastic! The service was wonderful. We made a reservation and then changed it and they worked with us and we didn't have to wait at all. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We ordered the large meal for the table and everything came out quickly and was delicious!

Marina Stonewall

A GREAT experience in catering. Everything you'd think you'd need was provided. Thanks for the delivery as well! Great food makes happy faces.

Flavor a little over powering of the meat with brisket. Very moist and tasty chicken. Great cornbread muffin! Great service.

Rita Crawford

Placed order online and picked up. Nice staff. They double checked my order to ensure I was happy. Family loved it.

John Gallagher

The best ribs going. Nice crust, easy pull, the right spice and the ribs are thick.

christine bailey

The worsted customer service ever and the women behind the register that was taken our order was rude and disrespectful by the way she acted when she had to put in my credit card information in manual because it wouldn't go though electronically and she got upset and ask another employee to help us cause she didn't want to do it and she went to help another Customer we felt that we were treated differently then the white customer she went to help and they had a problem with there credit card information and she told them no problem I can enter your information and told them about a contest they were having where you can win money if you go online and tell them about how was her customer service. I think that was so unfair that we didn't get the same treatment that the other couple did so we won't be going back to another famous Dave's again

Yvette Diaz

Food is always great at the Bellevue restaurant and the left over ribs, cornbread and pineapples reheated perfectly the next day. Clean environment, friendly wait staff and not too long of a wait to be seated. Hostess let you wait outside on the benches if you prefer them to the indoor benches.

Dominique Pearson

Great vibe as the beginning to walk up and check for the wrinkles out your clothes from the ride out to dine in.

Benjamin Kaczke

If I could give it 0 stars I would. Ordered a brisket meal and a pulled pork sandwich. I specifically said in the instructions for BBQ sauce packets and silverware. What did it come? Absolutely nothing. No sauce on the sandwich and completely over cooked dried out brisket. Tasted more like terrible beef jerky. Pretty simple, I will never get food from this establishment again. 0 stars...

John Scharff

Best Barbecue around. And I'm picky. Always satisfied.

Barbara Littleowl

They have a really good ribeye steak. They're normally thick, smoked , and very tender.

Nate Coates

"The Manhandler" came out a little cold, but our server Lacy took care of it. Great service, food and bread pudding is always amazing.

Sonya Wells

All excited about dinner but after 30 mins of waiting we only had drinks, no explanation about the delayed wait from our server Elise so we left. Especially since we saw other customers come in after us and be served before us. Very dissatisfied

Ricardo Ott

Great food. Great service. Love the rib tips

Kyle Ferguson

Best bread pudding I ever had in my life

John Ensslen

Great place good service food is wonderful and for all veterans protection forces and service rescue 25% discount.I will go back and bring someone .

Maria Santana

Third one of their restaurants I have visited in different cities the food is always fabulous

Elizabeth Black

Amazing speed and qaulity!

Matthew Mohlman

Daves sassy salad and chili!

Rachel Griffith

Omg. This is the most amazing place that I've ever been to for barbecue! I've never tasted such good meat!! The brisket was to die for and we will definitely be back to try more! Our waiter was phenomenal also! Always was ready with our needs and demands.

Frank Kinsey

Out standing service and food.


I would've give 5 except they never have beef ribs


Been here many times. They have started a renovation of the dining area. Looks much more modern this way. Seats still sit sag and table way to far from bench seat making for an uncomfortable position while eating. Food was cooked good and fries are much better, but brisket is to dry for my liking. But bbq is like that sometimes. Nick our waiter was great and made us lack for nothing. I just hope they do something with the seats..very uncomfortable. I think some sort of overall makeover is happening here. Still good for the price of 3. 50.00 bucks for all of us. Happy munching!

Alice Apple

Great server. U have to like meat. Nice place to say

William Byrd

This place is excellent! Had the brisket sandwich. Cooked to perfection.

Don Abernathy

I wish Peoria Il store could take lessons from this store. Quality of the food and service were great!

Michael Rudnick

Wow their food is good!

Keitha Brownell

The food was good but not great and there was a lot of it. What was great was the service. Our server, Ashley, made us feel like VIP's. She not only brought water for our dog she brought cold water and a dish so we could share. ..and the view overlooking the river was stunning

Sherry West

My waitress Sam H was amazing

Neil Hamilton

The brisket lunch deal with cornbread and Mac n cheese were very good

S Rostenbach

Decent Chicago style rib tips. Most of the time the steak fries are fresh. I now have to add that the best time to get rib tips to go is on the weekend! Went there during this last week and the tips seemed a bit old and were tough and stringy. Not tender and fresh like b4. The fries were not up to par and were different than the thick dinner fries we were used to getting. The fries we got this time were awful, soaked in grease, and just did not seem fresh. The employees did not seem especially energetic or quick to help even though the place wasn't busy at all that afternoon. This place ain't cheap so a huge disappointment! Dave's you are falling off - I almost returned my meals and would have if I didn't live so far from you. I hope you were just having an off day. So I'll try you again but beware, if I get a second meal like this last one... well, sorry, I won't be back for quite a while. I'll try another place or make them at home. Also I'm taking away one star because this is not the first time this had happened. It's like, anymore, you have to keep your fingers crossed when you get food to go, that you got a good batch.

Dawn Sample

Great prices for lunches. Very clean inside. Great choices of barbeque foods and different items to choose from. We had a waiter Famous Adam who is Very knowledgeable and helpful with the menu. Explained different food choices we inquired about. We tried the dessert he recommended the Bread pudding and it was Awesome. If you go you must try that for dessert and ask for waiter Famous Adam because He is very friendly, helpful and gave great service. Food was excellent. I will go again for sure.

Adam Washington

The food was good and the service as well

Heather Mcclure

Awesome food. Awesome service. Have never had a bad experience

JohnnyT1618 .

Best waitress ever.

Anthony Washington

Great Food & Excellent Service!

Dave T

Don't come here for the service. If you like their BBQ, I would suggest ordering take out but I have never done that to know if they'd do it right. We experienced super slow service, and I wasn't fan of the barbecue that day. A good indicator is driving by during dinner time and seeing how many cars are outside.

Keith Bowles

Not impressed. Famous for what?

Wally Marshall

Great food and service fun atmosphere

Brandon Taylor

Very good! Good service and good food. Multiple BBQ sauces to pick from, the rib ends were great! Recommended if you are in the area looking for BBQ.

Kristen M

Me and my mom love famous Dave's. The traditional wings with devil's spit sauce is my favorite thing to get. They also have several new desserts, like the lemon cream cake. It is soo good. Always enjoy my meals from here.

Terri Clay

Poor service, food was tough, the brisket was so tough... Not willing to adjust or fix bill

Lori Contreras

We love this place but the service has started to go downhill. The last several times we've eaten here, the waitstaff has not been friendly, not really even a smile from the last girl who served us. We spent so much time waiting on her to come to our table each time and it wasn't due to the restaurant being busy. We have also been given dirty plates and silverware. I hope things get better, my husband doesn't want to go back as it is.

Seanna Lanich

Delicious food. Booze needs work as I had a mixed drink that tasted more like watered down juice. Our waitress was great.

shantel clarke

Food was amazing. If your on a date get the feast for 2! Best bang for your buck!

Tina Denney

This was the most friendliest restaurant I have been to in a while. All the staff wished us a good day on our way out. Food was good and service fast.great margaritas

Jeff Twitchell

Very good food. Very good service eventhough they were very busy at our visit.

Christina Strupp

I love Famous Dave's and have had one decent experience here, but tonight was horrible. I'm a pretty reasonable person when it comes to dining out. We (party of 2) arrived at the restaurant at 7:40 on a Saturday night expecting to wait awhile for a table. We were told the wait time was 20 minutes, so we were expecting to wait around half an hour (knowing they usually underestimate the wait time). We were seated after 40 minutes, hungry but still willing to be patient. Our waitress arrived and took our drink order, then brought our drinks. She returned to take our food order, only then informing us that they were out of two menu items. A little disappointed, but recognizing that this was no one's fault, we ordered an appetizer and another drink (my partner had ordered a water and wanted to order another drink as well). We never received this drink, but we were also not charged for it. A few minutes later, we ordered our food. From this time, nearly 45 minutes passed before we received our appetizer, which came out lukewarm. During this time, we never saw our waitress and were unable to order refills on the drinks we had received. When our food finally arrived after 9:00, both our pork and chicken wings were COLD. Not like, they had cooled off a little bit cold. Like, cold to the touch cold. We were able to flag down a busy manager and asked for boxes. Even seeing that our plates were basically untouched, she didn't ask us if everything was okay, just brought the boxes and the check. Honestly, if any one of these things hadn't been SO horrible, I wouldn't be leaving this bad review. I understand the restaurant was busy, but really? I think the major issue is that the restaurant was understaffed. I left a note for the manager, asking her to pass our complaints on to corporate so that hopefully payroll can be increased and they can afford to have more workers during such a busy time of the week. I hope I can delete this review in the future, I really am a big fan of Famous Dave's. That's why I was so disappointed to have an experience like this.

Chad Henson

Food excellent and service was good. I had ultimate burger, topped with pulled pork and jalapeno bacon. Probably in the top two best burgers I have ever had. So good I savored it by eating with a fork. Excellent.

S'more Brownie swirl

Great service. The food was delicious and large portions.

Steve Tayrien

Yummy food, friendly greeting, prompt service at the table. What more could you want ...

Richard Ratzburg

Awesome, have our annual family feed here every year!

Barb Stoffel

Excellent... good food.. friendly staff

Roberta Batchelor

Great food wonderful service

pandora rooks

Good margaritas and food! Friendly staff too.

Solomon Huerta

This was the best food Ive had in a long time.. The no reservations sorta scared me away but we stayed anyway

Carla Cole

Love the Southside ribs everything's good

Dawn McRae

Customer service depends pricey but good. I order 3 meats comb

Shirley Robinson

The server was good but the food was cold when it was brought out. The ribs were over cooked. Not planning on returning anytime soon.

Derek Dawkins

I just recently relocated to Mandan ND from Birmingham AL to join my wife who has been up here several months. She had heard about the great food at Famous Dave's, so we decided to give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised how nice and accommodating the staff was and the food was excellent. We will be returning to see if the excellent service is as good dine-in as the takeout service was.

Jesse Simpson

Not impressed with the food portions vs price

Shearise Austin

Food was cold, ribs were fatty, and too small, with no servers

Brandon Robinson

Great food. The ribs are FIRE

Eric Settle

Gross, went here at 8PM tonight and ordered a 3 meat combo. Two brisket one sausage link. The brisket tastes disgusting, the meat also has an odd texture like its been reheated in a microwave. Fat is super prevalent in the brisket and is chewy and stringy, not like you would expect in "professional" barbecue. I dont know how this place can have such a high rating, maybe its better around prime time, but if you cant push out a decent quality at off peak, then just do people a favor and close down during those times. Having had real BBQ from some really good places, I cant imagine why I would eat here again.

Jay Cozart

Its Famous Dave's. What do I gotta say. It's great BBQ. Great burgers. If you like food and love BBQ. Go eat there. Its that simple. Our service was also amazing. So I guess that's important to point out too

Jennifer Ortiz

No one came to take my oder

Larry Pfennig

Tried the chili. Tasty, but could use slightly more heat.


Food tonight was SOOO GOOOODDD!!! Props to the cooks! It was amazing!! Thank you for satisfying my taste buds!! The staff rocks too!

Frank Murphy

Prices and food quality has went down.

Susan Neal

Great cue! We were staying nearby and walked over. I've given a 4 stardew to a little bit of confusion feeding us when we arrived, the hostess was Cherry through it all. Just a little rough start at the beginning but the rest of our service was fantastic. We have leftovers to go back to the hotel and it was a great spot for kids TVs around loud, in a good way, and I would go back. The sauces for great that's why I took a picture and was able to try each one at my discretion.

Michael Braun

If you enjoy BBQ this is the place for you. Ribs chicken or fish it is excellent. A great place for dinner tonight. I highly recommend Famous Dave's.

kenisha Fearon

I'm sad that I have to give this place two stars, I'd give it one, but the staff here was really good, I especially want to say thank the lady who stayed with my toddlers while I ran my daughter to the bathroom, having 3 children 3 and under in the bathroom all at once would have been a distaster so I truly appreciate your help. This location seems more geared towards takeout, you order at the takeout counter and pay, then they bring your food to you. I didn't expect that, but that's not why I gave them only two stars. I needed booster seats, and those things were sooo disgustingly dirty that I had to get soap from the bathroom, and wet wipes from my bag and literally washed all three booster seats, when I was done th wipes were black I was disgusted, I probably should have left at this point, but my children were hungry and restless, I was trying to avoid a full meltdown so we stayed. They put cheese on both my burgers after I asked for no cheese, so we had to wait for them to be re-made. It might have been in my head after wiping down the table and chairs but the food tasted nasty, I love famous Dave's but I won't be back.

Sekea Davis

Ribs are always good. A lot has changed since the new ownership, but fairly good food.


Great food, great service and decent prices. What is not to like for when you want to pig out on piggy ;)

Saralyn Ostwinkle

Soooo good!! Chicken was very juciy! Burnt ends where nice square chunks of meat. And the corn bread muffin was as yummy as ever!! Our service w as excellent!

Efrem Harris

This famous Dave's had very cool environment wasn't packed and the waitress was wonderful

Corbin Armstrong

All ways Good!

jenny jandreau

I got to say it's the best restaurant in town and if you're looking for a good barbecue don't look no further

Lola Cole

We went to Famous Dave's in Maple Grove, MN on a Friday. We were told it was a 30 minute wait. Once seated it took a while to get drinks, it took almost an hour to get our food. We spoke to the manager Rob and he explained they have a very new kitchen staff. They were running behind on everything. He even squatted down to our table to listen to us. In the end, the food was great and the Manager was excellent! He gave us a discount for the delay. I would eat there again because of the great service.

Carla Pollock

Not impressed with the food at all. Went for the first time with my family and we ordered the Dave's Sampler Platter as an appetizer and it wasn't very good at all. The ribs were so dry and tough I looked for a knife which there wasn't one. The onion strings were cold. The wings were alright. The catfish wasn't very good, dry and not very warm. I expected much better for a place that is suppose to be famous. But I guess famous can go either way....good or bad.

Marcia Novak

Great food. Wonderful service. We were pleased to see the lunch menu was available untill 5:00. We needed just a bite. Perfect sized portion for us.

Shanicqua Jelks

Love it they food always amazing ❤️❤️

Susan Fitzpatrick

Hamburger tasted just like the frozen ones you get at Walmart. Then put in order for take home. Nachos with chicken and chili. Specifically asked not to put jalepinos on it. Got home had Jalepinos on it. Not to impressed with the visit today


Ordered take out...had it within 10 minutes. Delicious! Arrived at/about 1:30 and did not have to fight crowds. One half slab was perfect size for lunch for two.

Jed Ambrose

A prime example of barbeque done right! Numerous juicy cuts of beef, pork, chicken, and even catfish served along with a home grown corn bread muffin, hearty appetizers, and all the sides you would expect at a bbq joint. I especially enjoyed the jalapeno mac and cheese with pineapple steaks. What I'm saying is if you like good bbq at reasonable prices stop on in and dont forget to ring Ng the bell on the way out!

Kia Epley

Came in October while on vacation! (Oct 8th, dinner time) The service was really good, my friend had to send back her ribs because the ones she got were really dried out, but the management contacted our table, and got her a nice fresh set of ribs and all was good. :-)

Chris Brousseau

Came here with my girlfriend and the food was horrible! Came to the table cold and the ribs were so tough, my tooth cracked. After explaining this to the manager, she said that the cartilage is always tough. The problem with this is that this particular piece had no cartilage in it. My girlfriend and I have traveled to many places notorious for BBQ such as Chicago, Memphis, @ New Orleans and we are well aware of what a rib contains. We did not need an education in the different parts of the rib. To make things worse, the waitress told us she was in a hurry to leave because she and her friends were meeting up and didn't want to be the reason the occasion was delayed. Supposedly, the GM is going to call today. We will see what happens. I have no faith in management's ability to rectify this issue and won't hold my breath or return.


Food was over seasoned and meat was tough. Did not like it at all. Disappointed because I'm a regular customer

Joe Miller

Tasted good, but had an awfully large amount of waste on my back ribs. Almost like a spare rib. Still it hit the spot.

Janae Luciano

Highly recommend they have so much to choose from and friendly prices I can’t wait to go back I had grilled pineapple with chicken breast and potato salad

Gloria Shackleford

Excellent customer service and good food.

K Woody

Very disappointed in the service. Had to ask for our servers numerous times. She simply disappeared at one point. Food was good.

Michael Zerr

Great place to eat

henry perez

The variety of their own sauces was legit. All very tasty n paired with their so damn tasty ribs. The Mac n cheese n jalapeno was so creamy. I left gaining a good 5 lbs

Renee DeClouette

Worst experience EVER!!!! I ordered take out for my 4th of July party on July 2nd. When I went to pick up my food at the designated time, not only did I have to wait a hour and a half, people who ordered on the 4th came in and got their food before me. The management and the rest of the staff seemed none caring and dismissive. Extremely poor service. I figured if I ordered 2 days ahead, I would be able to pick up on time. My guest arrived at my house before I did!! I will NEVER go back to Famous Dave's. I might add my order was wrong!!

Mary Nobles

I don't eat bar b q often so when this place was brought up as a suggestion I was a little reluctant to agree. Being that I didn't know what I wanted I was ok with what they chose. Although I didn't like some of the sides the ribs was by far the best I've ever had!!!

Michael St. John

Great food. Great service.

Jackie OBrien

I have never had better BBQ anywhere. There food is amazing and the speed of service was even better.

Penny Downing

Wow amazing service and food

Martha bosley

Love their ribs and rib tips. The variety of sauces are nice to try. I was with a group of 14 and they kept us all together but still let us separate our bills w/o adding their own tips. I like that.

Dennis Barksdale

Great place and great server.

cassandra harmon

I've eaten meals from this family dining restaurant on many occasions. Normally, I order the brisket and enjoy every bite of it. Tonight was a COMPLETE disappointment. After a 20 minute ride home, I opened a container that smelled nearly rancid. The meat was not fresh - a colorful shiny coating present on the meat as it spoils... I'm not certain who made the call to serve this food, but it was a poor one. I will be calling to speak with management tomorrow. This experience was a far cry from the norm. Hopefully, it's an isolated incident

Nikki Gadwell

Dry rub baby backs are the best

JoAnn Jones

The St. Louis style ribs were great. The burnt end were dry and chewy. The beef tips had no smokyness or seasoning to them. We also did not like their beans. I loved that they had a variety of sauces.

Charles Meyrand

Excellent food and service

U See Me

Better than mission BBQ...

Eric Haaland

Meats are good, but they consistently forget to pack the cornbread in takeout orders.

Susan Mcafee

Great food! Quick service. Comfortable atmosphere.

Mission Place

Famous Dave's came here to market business. We refer tons of people here! The tender rib choice taste superb!

Daniel Ely Aleman

I placed a catering order with them and this is what I received for $120...very disappointed and my order wasn't even correct as it was missing items

David E. Heino

I haven't been here in awhile so that I'd get some good BBQ. We ordered the American Feast. There was a lot of food. My two favorites are the Ribs and the Brisket. This Brisket didn't look like any Brisket I ever had before. It was more like they sliced a loin or something. It was round instead of flat. It was very good though. I'd have preferred more Brisket to Chicken. The prices have gone up quite a bit since my last visit that's for sure. Overall I think it was pretty good

Jack Shannon

I had the ribs and they were absolutely delicious. I can't wait till I'm in the area again so I can go back and enjoy that again. Maybe this time I might try something else on the menu. Service was quite quick and the place looks quite cozy.

samita gazi

Great food , great servers even great view.

Sir-Charles -Willing Magogonite

Amazing. Best place in KC. I drove truck all over the U.S.A. and this place has the best food i have ever had. I got sad when my plate was gone. You will never choose another B.B.Q. place again after this.

Mike Brashier

I catered an event and had numerous racks of ribs. With multiple sides. The ribs were not the normal slide off the bone. In fact, not even close. They were tough! Taste was what you expect and all of the sides...and we had most of them. Were fantastic. Everyone enjoyed the luncheon but questioned the ribs. They do a fine job normally of being consistent with taste and experience. The service was fantastic! They were pleasant and polite and bent over backwards to accommodate. I will certainly be back.

Gail BeDunnah

Good food excellent service

Susan Salie

Great food Terrific service!

Elaine Velasquez

My favorite restaurant!!! Because it is very tasty food full of flavor! Juicy meats,all sorts BBQ! However u like it! In sandwich,in a potatoe, Brisket, Pork, Burgers,!!! Awesome deserts too! Bar too.

YouTube Recording HD

I love it here!

Denny Crow

Best barbecue ribs and brisket in Las Vegas!

Chad Uleryk

Great barbecue just rember has a bit of spice to everything

logan schutte

Good chain bbq place! Friendly staff, nice environment

Merle Doughten

Very good service on a slower afternoon. The food was good and timely, overall nothing bad to say.

Mikki Major

The best barbecue place I had Famous Dave's yum yum

Camille B

Cedrick Burton

Pump your breaks, I'm from Texas and was highly disappointed. However, it did help me realize that Texas is the King of BBQ. Save your coins, and go to a Royals or Chiefs game instead.

Heather Beck

Food was good, waitress sucked. Was done with my salad by the time she got my crackers. My husband asked for another bottle of ketchup, and that took close to 15 minutes after asking her a 2nd time.

Leah Vankirk

We love Famous Daves. They have never let us down for good food and good service

Octavian Ciubotariu

Service was ok, food was slow, and cold. The BBQ was mediocre at best, tried the ribs, rib tips and brisket. Not bad if you're in the area and desperate for a bite to eat.

B Fuller

Great bread pudding. Barbeque is a lot better as they must have hired a new chef

johanes Prawira

Very good brisket. Price is appropriate


A bit pricey but delicious

Edward Ross

Brisket is not smoked !! And not a lot of flavor. There was no bark and very little flavor !! The pulled pork needed sauce just to have flavor. There beans and corn bread were oustanding though. One of the things i have learned about living in Michigan is you can not find good BBQ !! As i am from Texas i smoke my own Briskets and Ribs !! See attached pictures !! There is nothing famous about Daves except the over pricing for a poor quality of BBQ !!

Michelle Brennise

Love the take out service.

3D Frenchie

Wow our first time here it was frickin amazing.

william noble

Ffg ood was great with big portions

Level_er .

Best barbeque I have ever had. Went there with the family, everyone was satisfied. Love the barbeque sauce.

Mark Swanson

it's okay. Corn in the mac n cheese caught me a little off guard. Brisket was again ok, nothing to write home about... edible and tasty.

Dino Mathena

The constantly forget my appetizer. It always comes out with my meal and I send it back. The appetizer is to come out before the meal. The meats are good.

Shawn Obrien

Very good BBQ. We like to order takeout for the family about once a month. I recommend the family feast meal. Don't forget to order extra cornbread muffins.

JaRita Moss

A bit of a wait to be seated for no apparent reason as there were several open tables. An extremely long wait for the waitress to come to our table and then the food was mediocre. Disappointing to say the least.

Jack Long

Awesome food, reasonable prices, clean, kids eat for only 99 cents once a week and great service. What elsedo you need?

Lawrence Barrios

This place has the best BBQ, they appreciate the military Veterans on Veterans day and we appreciate it

Kevin Beal

There a little slow but all eles is great

Jeff Herman

Great bbq but their outdoor dinning needs some character. Just a slap of concrete, no bushes, hedge, flowers, blah!!

Debra C

This place is absolutely amazing! Everything about it from the cute decorations, friendly staff, to the yummy food is wonderful. This is my favourite BBQ restaurant in the Branson area. You will get plenty of food on your plate as well. Nice!

Jesse Hauff

Shout out to Famous Jon! Thank you

Glenda Couvillion Reavis

Wonderful bar b que, great prices, and outdoor pet friendly.

Avery Walters

Ultimate burger is excellent. Other than that it was ordinary.

Olya Kleinjan

We loved the food! Nice variety and great service. I know that the style of the store is old however the doors and floors could be a bit cleaner. Food made up for it though

Matt Gilson

The Georgia pork sandwich is good. The service at takeout is generally passable. I haven't eaten in here before though.

Elizabeth Kuhnle

Sides were very unimpressive. Ribs were still good.

Gerald Cadotte

The Food was Excellent! The Staff was Great and Friendly! A must for anyone who wants Great Food!

S. Anderson

Amazing food and great, timely lunch time service. I'll be back soon.

Kimberly Haverland

Wonderful food and service

Nathan Yamamoto

Good ol' BBQ of the mid-west. Best BBQ thing I've ever, which isn't saying a lot, since I'm from So-Cal. Came hear from Great Wolf Lodge, had some ribs, best things I've ever had. Tender and juicy, way better than any other BBQ spot. Totally worth coming here, even if it took a very, very long drive.

ernest hairston

Fast becoming one of my favorite restaurant!!

Vida Kelly

Food was excellent. I ordered online and my food was ready when I arrived to pick it up

Richard Brown

Good time and food with the family

Tracy Cedar

We aren't huge BBQ lovers however, my husband and I both had the salmon and it was really good. In fact, we enjoyed it so much when we bought Famous Dave's seasonings and sauce when we noticed it at our favorite grocery store. I plan to stop our local Famous Dave's in Roseville, MI to buy bloody Mary mix, it the best I have ever had.

James Edwards

Great food service and atmosphere

Bill Goodale

Don't know didn't go there I went to the Mexican restaurant next to it

Tracey Elledge Telle

Ribs are very good if you get them early in the day

Kenneth Scheib

Good food for the price and friendly people


Spent $120 tonight on carryout. We had a large family platter, a small family platter and extra brisket. The only items that were edible were the ribs and sides. The brisket was so fatty and nasty. I would describe it as the texture of pebbles held together by strings of fat. The chicken was so dry, it looked like brittle hair. This was one of the most disgusting meals I've ever consumed.

dtunedguitar Mitch

Excellent, good for groups and family. Fair price, great food choices. Super tasty

Cameron Goode

It's chain restaurant ribs. You'd be better off giving Jim's Rib Haven some love though.

Shaun Manning

They never let me down when I want some good food and dont have the time to grill. One of the consistent food chains. Chicken and ribs are always good. The fried catfish fingers with that dipping sauce is great.

Kerry Chin

The food was good and quick. It wasn't the best I've had but it was still good. There was barely anyone there so the service was fast. The staff were all very polite. I went with a friend that had been the recently and the server remembered what he had previously.

Jozef Ziegler

Absolutely the worst experience I have ever had at a restaurant... hands down the most deserved 1 star review ever. And hear this one out please. Our visit began with host Josh. "We don't have any booths would a table be fine?" Would have been a fine thing, understandable at that, however we were looking at one that only needed to be cleaned off. (Right side by the bar along the wall...) We went outside and sat out in the car for about 10 minutes thinking about, using Google to find, maybe somewhere else to go. After seeing a few groups leave we figured let us give it a go again. So that table still wasn't cleaned off that I mentioned before. And the only thing keeping us from a booth was another table getting wiped down. A hostess left and took care of it... so we get seated. Not a very busy night for how it usually is there. (On a Saturday night) Two sweet teas, one for each of us, later we notice our waitress had been by our table four or so times. Never stopping to offer refills. Eventually we get our salads. (Brown edged lettuce... so I stopped eating but she figured it didnt matter and ate. It is what it is.) Waitress says she'll bring out refills but returns with our dinners... my girlfriend asks about the sauce that is supposed to come with the meal. Apperently people dont like its spice so you have to ask for it... according to the waitress that is. My meal was missing the rib tip sauce. She returns with the chicken tender sauce and you'd guess it... no refills. My apology is to the manager for when I said "if the floor is anything like the kitchen no." After telling her that there was nothing we would like to do more than leave after she asked several times if they could do anything. Unfortunately they couldn't. Kids for staff were working slowly, didnt seem like anyone wanted to be there, and at the end of night I just couldn't handle another thing at this Famous Daves. I asked to pay for the side salads and drinks. The manager let us leave which is appreciated. They even offered to have the meals on them if we'd stay or even boxes to take it home... so she did make an effort. That's my review take it or leave it.

Beef BBQ Ribs were fall off the bone tender & flavorful. Pulled Pork was average. Portions were very generous.

michael criswell

Great food fair prices

Ray Ortines

Good stuff! Like mission bar b q though!

Dave's Corner

Good food, decent customer service.

Maribel Albino

Food was delicious, I order the feast for 4-6 people. Steak fries tasted great like they just came out of the fryer. The male waitress was awesome. You never go wrong with Famous Dave's.

Brian Keitel

Normally sit in the bar area and have great service. Favorite item is the 2 meat platter. I vary between brisket, pulled pork and the hot link sausage. All of their BBQ sauces are good, especially like their pineapple rage. Their corn muffins are great and the bread pudding dessert is amazing!

Larry Glover

Not Memphis or Kansas City bbq, but for a chain not bad at all.

D Shan

Not so bad. The sauce is great.

John Brown

I walked in to eat lunch it was slow. I was going to walk into the bar area to eat there was a sign that says wait to be seated two employees standing there did not say a word so I turned around and left

Leah Henning

Good food and fantastic service

Jay Wilson

Haven't been here in a long time. But the food was good and my waitress Jenny I believe that was her name. She was really nice.

Name Name

Great food and great hospitality!

Jamie Blumhagen

Had the ribeye the last two times I've been there. Both times was awesome! Sides were also awesome! Along with the staff.

Carol Saldivar

Service can be slow. But I love the 4-bone meal with 2 sides. Just enough.

Daniel Henry

Good food took awhile to get food not that busy


Yummy bbq. Need better fries, too thick.

Alaina Perry

The staff was great

Christy Gibson

Pricey, but well worth it.

Theresa Schnowske

Not satisfied. Cole slaw and cornbread good. Thats it.

Tayler Hein

Great food and to-go options!

Robyn D

This is my favourite barbecue restaurant. I do not like the dry rub that some restaurants serve, that is really challenging to get right. Famous Dave's items are always in their delicious sauce. The meats are never drenched in sauce, they always have just enough. The sides are delicious. The Wilbur Beans are tangy sweet with chunks of tender brisket mixed in to make for a hearty satisfying dish. The cornbread muffins are always moist with a subtle hint of sweetness. They serve the best bread pudding. It has the perfect texture and is paired with a praline sauce that is perfection. Service is always fast and courteous. They have table service and also have outdoor seating.

Luis Lopez

This is an awesome place!!! When I saw there is one close to the Cristina Mall, since I was there already... I had to go. Took my wife and Mother in-law as belated Mother's day gift. Very nice and clean location. Extremely great customer service, food very tasty, well done and came right of the bone, and prices are considerable affordable. THE Corn bread, uffff... to die for (not literally, please) but we had to order a dozen to take home... Anyway, great place and awesome experience. Very unfortunate for me that the ones around me closed...

Jason Julkowski

The seating area is small, but that is part of the charm at this place. They do seem to cater more to the to-go crowd, but it is also a cozy place to eat at as well. The food at this location tastes great compared to other Famous Dave locations. I guess the employees here know what they are doing. Service is good for not being full service. You order at the counter and take your seat.

Liz Lexow

We had heard good things about this restaurant so we went today for lunch. No one was behind the desk to greet us so after a few minutes we went to look for someone to help us. Met the person from the front counter as we were looking for him. We were stunned when he was rather abrupt (rude) to us and said we would have a wo minute ws it for a table. There were 2 families in the restaurant at the time. All the other tables were empty!! Sorry, bad service means you lost 4 customers today!!

Joseph Fonseca

Over The Top! Service was a Show in itself! Be very Proud of the Service you extend! I will tell everyone I know of your fine establishment. Keep up the Great Work!

Frances McGruder

Food was good service was great I would go back again

Lucinda Kerkhoff

Great service, good eats

Jeffrey Conkling

Good food and service was very good.

Gina Painter

I had Famous Dave's cater for my husband's retirement party! Outstanding!!! Everyone raved about the food and service. I can't tell everyone enough about the staff. From the very beginning the team of caterers were available and flexible! Helped me with everything. I couldn't have done it without them! They told me they would take care of it and they did. Above and beyond! Thank you so very much for taking the stress off of me and showing up, setting up, taking care of everyone, packing everything and cleaning up. I don't know what I would have done without you!! ❤❤

Julian Fimbres

Absolutely incredible experience!! Can't wait to keep coming back for more

Patricia Riecke

Awsome pickles corn bread good ribs...not the best but darn good.

Matt Bladel

Was served old chips, had to say something they were so hard

B More

Wild rice soup was good with the ribs bought a few full pans of t

Paul Sayther

Normally great but carry out burned with 20% unedible, both salmon and ribs. Hopefully a one time bad experience. In house always very good.

Jerry Malinowski

Great rib tips, very meaty. Brisket had almost no fat and was good and tasty. Portion sizes good for the price. Dining room atmosphere cozy and pleasant log cabin style. Daves passes the test with flying colors!

Glenn Hoffmann

Love Dave's. Visited a friend and stopped here. The platter for two can feed three. We ate most of it. One if the best servers I've had. She was attentive and always smiling. Forgot her name. I'm old.

Kerma Cash

Excellent bbq, soup and salad. Something for everyone. Sit and watch Taneycomo roll by.

Robert Kochen

I've always enjoyed Famous Dave's, especially the Devil Spit sauce. They didn't disappoint me this time either. Always consistent. No photos of the food, ate it too quickly.

Mark Cory

Great food in a casual atmosphere. Near a large noisy table last night, but the quality of the food and service made up for raucous neighbors.

Stuart Bierkamp

Food has gotten better than last time I was there about 5 years ago, I will be going back more often now.

E.r R.E

Usually very good food. Service is good too

Greg Haines

Great ribs, tied for the absolute best ribs and the other place is in went out of business years ago in Huntington WV. So currently that makes Dave the current undisputed king.

Laura Cookson

Best barbecue I have ever had!!! Great atmosphere. The staff were amazing! Ribs were fall off the bone, brisket melts in your mouth, light and fluffy corn bread. Highly recommend!!!!

Jay Armbruster

Great service from Famous Lexi! I had ribs and brisket, they were great. The best thing was the bread pudding. I go every once in a while and never had a bad experience. Also, in and out in less than an hour. Can't beat that for a sit down restaurant.

Matthew Cowen

Being from the Kansas City area I'm pretty picky about my barbecue restaurants. I've eaten at Famous Dave's before but not this particular location. The food is the same as every other location. Pretty average and not really done great. That being said it's a decent restaurant and you won't get horrible quality. I particularly like the bread pudding that they have here. If they would leave out some of the raisins it would be a little bit better but other than that a good visit.

Christopher Burnett

Great food great service great music great price

Michele Pearsall

The platter for two was more than enough food for us, verrrry good & staff was great

Dylan Slavenkov

Food was terrific, not waited, get your own drink. Service was fast

Erik Mendoza

1st time here . Good service and food .

Amber M

Staff is always friendly and food is amazing

Billie Tyree-Wright

We were there this past Sunday , worse food I have ever eaten. Way over cooked. My pulled pork was so dry nothing helped. The kids chicken fingers were so cooked they could not eat them Will not go back

Thom Clare


Gloria Sykes

I love this place! Who doesn't love bar b que? I don't eat red meat so its a plus that they have a good chicken section, they're catfish is good also. I have to get the mac n cheese and the smoking long island iced tea, it's has a taste that i haven't found in any other long island. Great atmosphere, cool place for the whole family. The prices aren't bad either.

hung nguyen

Our party of 6 ordered the party feast and it was exactly it. A feast. They could have displayed it better. But everything was good. Food and services were both excellent.

Caryn Repnow

Haven't been there in awhile, service was good and the food came out quickly. The entrees were good and our waitress was friendly !

Jared Frederick

Honestly deserves more attention than it has.

David T

This used to be a place we would visit weekly, then monthly, now yearly. Haven't been for here for two years and can see why, the food was loosing it flavor and the food quality along with it. Our recent trip was just disappointing. The only thing that would make us come back are the onion strings and their bread pudding.

Jim Hickenbottom

Great food and great service

DMA_951 California

I tried all of the bbq sauces but home made is the best. I like the corn bread. I wish they smoked the beef with pepper.

David Cruz

Food was delicious and service was great!

Daniel Wiles

Waste of money!!! Little food big price!! Go someplace else!!

Dominie Woods

Awesome food and the waiter was great/attentive!!!

Brenda Graham

Had a luscious, delicious Free Birthday dessert. Warm brownie, scoop of vanilla with chocolate syrup. Yum, Yum, YUMMY.

Serious Black

Was my first time and it was an amazing experience!!!! The location , service and food were all amazing. The decor was astounding and the food was to die for. OUR SERVER CAMRON really made it an awesome first experience and was very helpful with his recommendations. I will definitely be coming back again and would recommend this location to anyone looking for a great dinning experience.

Lamar Smith

My food was so good, and the bread pudding it was to die for. It was so much I had to share my dessert

Sharon Biesecker

Not too bad. Waitress was slow at the end. Food was good.

Laurie O'Meara

Always a good lunch or dinner stop. Lunch combos are a good deal, dinner portions provide two meals! East side or downriver, both locations are great!

Tamba Clark

Nice food, quick service

I said What I said

I ordered lunch for mother’s day for take out. My husband picked up the order and we were missing an item. I called back To say that we were missing a part of our order. The young lady who took the order blamed the kitchen and offered no apology. She asked if I wanted to drive back to pick up the missing item. What ? Do you know where I leave? Are you going to pay for my gas? I asked if they could credit back what I was charged and she said she was going to get the manager. He came to the phone and asked if he could help me . The Young lady apparently didn’t take the time to fill him in so I had to explain the situation all over. Again no apology and same stupid questions. Kevin the manager acted like I was at fault. Offered to send me a gift card. I am hungry right now, not next week sir. Anyway that’s it for me. No more famous Dave’s for me ever. Train your staff better.

Bethany Prast

Great St. Louis ribs and their cornbread muffins are awesome. Kyle was a great server!

Sam Clyde

Best ribeye I've ever eaten. Only been there once before and the waiter remembered me and important parts of my order. Was great. My daughter left a note of their own. :)

Derrek Bryan

Havent received such excellent customer service in a long time. From the second I walked in everyone was very friendly and accommodating. Jessica at the bar took great care of me and helped me explore the menu and different flavor options. The food was great and the portion sizes are very generous. I had a great time and would love to come back.

Susan Colvin

Excellent food and service!

Ansel White Eagle Jr.

Food was made just the way I would have cooked it

carissa nelson

everytime we come it's a good time with great service and delicious food.

Green Heart

Food was great! Manager came out and talked to us about our food and even gave us free barbeque sauce!! This was my first time at Dave's but it will not be my last!! Awesome experience

Josh Casper

My call ahead order for a set time wasn't as hot as an immediate order. The staff is amazing though! The place is also extremely clean and well taken care of. As soon as the road construction is done things will be great!

lachelle meir

Great food. Great service. Family friendly

Harry and Cindy Straut

Brisket was the best ever

David Velky

Great ribs! But corn on cob was overcooked.

Vicki Holman

Famous Dave's was really good today. We had the BBQ nachos with brisket. I found out on the way out that they are one of the few places around here that serves Pepsi products! I'll definitely go back if only for that reason.

tanisha mcgee

Went on valentine day and even though it was crowded the service was still good

cheryl brideofchrist

Yeah the meat amount is good but I just think you guys need to get larger containers for your being because there's only like four spoonful of beings and your beings and the beans are good but it's not right that you only give us four spoonfuls of being and we're paying like $17 for a meal I mean that's just kind of cheap the coleslaw is fine that ties with I think the being should be a larger size and I know beings don't cost that much to make


My family makes a trip to branson every June because it is my birthday, my pawpaw's birthday, fathers day, and my nana and pawpaws anniversary. Before we leave Branson we always come here to eat lunch. The cornbread muffins is my favorite, but they also have rlly good bbq

John Ellison

Service was fine food is just so so. We make better ribs and brisket at home. Corn muffin should just have a jiffy label on it. Decor is reaching and over done. I would eat it for free but not go out of my way to get some.

Nilda Acosta

Our server was amazing! Food was great, will definitely be returning.

Crystal Dhamers

The food was delicious! Best barbeque in town!

steve garren

Excellent food. The family enjoyed everything!

Ryan Pierre

Food was good as always, but the service wasn't the best

Thomas Stillings

My order arrived incorrectly. Had to wait for a re-order. It used to be a real good place for ribs, not so sure anymore. On one other visit, my wife's St.Louis style ribs had look and texture of an old leather boot. It's hard to believe they think that was acceptable to serve to a customer.

Tony Chavez

Awesome employees, even provided Band-Aids for my injured finger when my injury was at Sears

Jeanne Rivard

I had the best server tonight that I've ever had.

Mo Do

Excellent great food and service.

Sean Smyth

Good food, painless take out experience.

P Watson

Both food and portion size was great. Only negative were the directions provided from Google maps- they were awful.

Robert Smaiiey

I've eaten at famous Dave's all around the country. Nice friendly place courteous staff.everything was great except the food. It was just ok. It wasn't up to the level of the other Dave's that I've been to. Cornhuskers make real good steaks but bbq not so much.

Sybil Koning

Hands down favorite Famous Dave's! Staff is quick and friendly! Super family friendly location and my kids like going here. We like the single row private seating. The food is always consistent and good! It's never too busy to sit down because the so a lot of carry out orders. Favorite quick bite place

Dbrownwvable .

Very average from the service to the food... well the drinks were pretty gd.

Danny G

Great food and great service..

Jimmy Bostic

Can't get enought of this place . good people

Daniel Westmoreland

Not very good BBQ at this location - dry and lacking in flavor when I was there. That was a year ago so what’s that tell you?

Steve Sorenson

This is my favorite local restaurant. Close by (even though I'd travel a half hour to eat here) and with excellent food. The best BBQ in the Twin Cities. Free parking, handicap accessible, great prices and not a bad item on the menu. Highly recommended!

C Monroe

Server was slow, but the 'que is good

Dawn Brown

Food and service was awesome, thank you.

Cory Bennett

Always a great experience. The wings are pretty good for 50 cents.

William Millard

Great service and friendly staff. Clean environment with great views. Not a great portion when it came to the burnt ends.

Vedo D

Great food every time, depressed they raised alcohol prices and took the machines away

RegentBelt 14512

The best food ever

Salvador Pete Santos

The biggest banana pudding ive have ever eaten at a barb-q place ever great

Jacob Evans

Good food, good BBQ sauce, excellent service

Jess P

Foods was great, service was pretty good for how busy they were.

Nick Lawson

Great service. Had wings and they were good as always. This spot does not have servers. You order at counter and take a number fyi.

Shelly Cannon

My son and I went here for lunch and it of course was delicious! We always get the 2 meat combo and share it. At lunch it was only 9.99 which was fantastic! Our food came out in an efficient time and our waitress was very nice. The manager even stopped by to check on things which I always think is a great thing. We will definitely be back!

Darrin Swanson

I delivered for ubee eats it lookedca smell good it was ready immediatly also so i was able to deliver it fresh and hot !

Brenda Miller

The food here was wonderful! I ordered the smaller order of ribs. It came with a corn muffin and 2 sides. I chose coleslaw & the apples! Sooo yummy! I also ordered 2 drinks from the bar. They were Amaretto sours. They didn't put a cherry or an orange slice on but they were a great drink! My husband and I only waited 20 minutes to be seated.

Ruth Pierce

bbq... quality stuff. I love it here. The staff was very helpful and observant.

Stephen Lawrence

Super friendly staff! They were especially helpful with the menu and told us about a special we didn't even know was going on. The food was amazing and the staff was very attentive.

Dennis Lucas

Good Food Great time... Gotta go will love as I did..

Jessica Horne

Good food and great service. Tuesday's Feast for 2 should be named Family Feast, it's a lot of food!!

Bruce Weston

Only gave me 2 packs of barbecue sauce

Jim Larsen

The last time we were there we were seated in with a party of about 20 people. Really did not mind them bring noisy but some went out of there way to be rude will that stop us from coming back? No

Tara Deweever

Food is delicious and the staff is friendly and welcoming!

Darlene Meissner

Bought for my son's anniversary but when I ordered I was shocked at how expensive it had gotten. This is the fifth time I've gotten the BBQ Feast for 4-6 people. Not. Four small corns, 4 corn muffins and maybe 1-1/2 cups of mashed potatoes. So $69.95 plus tax $76. Way too much money. If I didn't promise this to my family I would never have bought it. I won't buy it anymore. Feast had gone up almost $15 and it's too expensive for me. Employees very nice and helpful. Food good but overpriced.

Mrj Lafayette

Such a great place to eat.Food is the best BBQ i ever had and the service is very good with comfortable seating. I really enjoyed famous Dave's.It's way better than any other BBQ restaurant.

Charles Rickard

Tiny burger, average taste. Not my idea of BBQ. Person next to me liked their ribs, but no one raved.

Ken Johnson

Food was blah... Took forever to get. The waitress dumped a whole cup of pop on my wife when the cup slipped from her hand. We had to ask for towels to dry my wife off. No manager came over and we had to ask for a different table. Once we got reseated and a new waiter, my wife asked if the salad had a dressing or just BBQ sauce... The waiter said it was a mix of BBQ and ranch. Once it finally came out it was just BBQ. The dude lied. Service was poor at best. Won't be going back anytime soon, much better options for BBQ elsewhere.

Autumn Morris

Every year we dine as a group of 60-80 people. We have never once been disappointed by the service, the staff or the food. We call ahead an order our food and tell them what time we are coming and it always exception. Thank you for taking great care of us again this year!

Brian Johnson

THE Best Ribs I've had in a long time!

Chris Knopik

Always good food and service. Quick service

Nick Cook

My favorite bbq joint in KC i know it's a chain however the food is always good and the staff is friendly i highly recommend the sampler platter and the mac and cheese as a. Side it has a kick If you're looking for a barbecue in the Kansas City area I highly recommend this place it is located in the legend shopping centers so it is easy to find and and they have great Food and service

Janet Iwanowski

Good food and service

Aquina Bounds

Food quality is always good and customer service

Andrew Erickson

Never been a big fan of Famous Dave's, and this was no exception. Staff was great however. Small patio for outdoor dining which is nice.


Visited Famous Dave's today in a party of two. Food was excellent as usual! But, the service was very poor, today. I just gave a five star review two months ago, and they derserved the rating at that time. To start our waitress was Nikkiey, and she behaved as if she didn't want to serve my party. It took Nikkiey 10 minutes to take our order. And, the only reason she came over to take our order is because, a person in my party went to the host an advised him that our order had not been taken. Secondly she was rude, and a bit standoffish when the person in my party asked her if she should could change one thing with her order. And, Nikkiey replied very rudely by saying she would have to wait. It wasn't her reply, it was her tone. She never came back to our table to change the order. But, the server from the kitchen who delivered the food to our table was the one who changed the order. Thirdly I was trying to get Nikkiey's attention to refill my drink, she totally ignored me. And, when I asked another server to please give me a refill, and she was going to give me a refill that's when my waitress responded by cutting her off and getting a refill for me. Fourthly I put my hand up looking at Nikkiey for a bag for our leftovers, but my waitress stared at me, and did not respond. Finally she responded when she bought the check over. And, placed the bag on a hook on the table. She never handed me the bag. I did not leave my server a tip, because her service was awful, and I felt she didn't deserved one. I was really disappointed today with this Famous Dave's in Columbia, MD, because they normally give great service, and great food. I think Famous Dave's need to re-evaluate their waitress or give her better training.

Diana Webb

It was terrible it had the worst smell when we walked in I didn't even want to eat there won't be back

Shirley Tedder

Always great!!! Alcohol drinks needs to be a little stronger

Rita Sivigny

Very good food must stop again when in ND

Pamela Inskeep

Love the family feasts that are served on metal garbage can lids. Meat on ribs falls off the bone tender. Brisket melts in your mouth. Burnt ends are delish! Corn on the cobb and steamed broccoli are great. Come hungry and you won't be dissapointed.

Kris Sikkema

I love love love the onion strings

Marion Gilbert

I called they may be ready and when I got there it was and their food was delicious


Nice restraunt! Absolutely no wait time! And the food was great! The pineapple steaks are awesome!!

Jameson Brandt

The food was delicious and not to pricey.

Jordan L

The best

Kristina D. Allen

I visited for a friend's birthday gathering. Initially there was an issue with getting seating, although it wasn't crowded. We were able to work it out and stay. Our server was very courteous and attentive. The food was good and plenty of parking.


This location is much much busier since they closed the other location on Rt 202...wait 20-30mins over weekends... Forgot us as we waited nearly 20 mins...Finally got a seat and after 35 more minutes, we got our chips and drinks same time as food.. Dave you should have closed this spot and left Rt 202 open... Food always awesome though...

Paaa K

It's worth going there for ur it and the guys are very friendly.....

Marcella Watlington

If you are looking for Bread Pudding Famous Daves is the place to go , not to mention a variety of other venues you can order and enjoy Its cosy & family orientated,

Solaire Of Dabstora

Very amazing food when you order it, good service too. I didn't find the all you can eat buffet all too appealing though.

Ashley Jewell

I’m giving a two star rating because even though my meal was decent, my husband ended up getting food poisoning from the brisket meal he had. He was sick and vomiting for a couple days. :(

Maksim Garbaly

Why didn't anyone tell me about this earlier the food is really good

Jason Horstman

I love coming here for BBQ ribs they are very good. Service has always been good, you can feel an energy in the room as they rush to tables to make sure everyone is taken care of. Its a good spot for lunch meetings, everyone leaves happy.

Kevin Johnson

Very delicious. I had the brisket and the rib tips. The tips were mostly bones. Still tasted great. Service was great also.


The restaurant was empty on a Sunday nigjt at 7:30. Yet, we waited one hour for food. When served it was barely warm and burned. Server was horrifically rude. We sent everything back, told the Manager we would pay for our iced tea and left.

Laura Lee

First time there. Our waiter Jessie knows his stuff. Great experience, definitely going back. Awesome food!!

Nathaniel Russell

great food and service!

Jeni Palmer

Jeremiah is an awesome manager!! He was very kind and helpful. I wish all managers at food establishments were as courteous! A huge thanks to Jeremiah!!!!

Nikya Mcclendon

Barbecue is alright. Sides are ok. The brisket is good. The cornbread muffins probably are their best seller.

marcus schmidt

Food is always good. Service was great!

Jeff Cleaveland

Great food, friendly staff,

Jordan zilliah

Enjoyed my mother's day there with my family

Bernardo Bece Gom

Best place in town

Eli Sandusky

I used a food delivery app to try and order Famouse Dave's food but it took like 2hr then kicked me out of the app with all my card info saved and I still didn't get my Famous Dave! I was mad! I had to walk in. Anyways! Please get your very own dedicated app. I love this place

Dan Buckley

Service was excellent, but the food was not so much. The entrees were pretty good, but the sides were not. Maybe a matter of personal taste. I won’t be going back.

Grace Wilson

I go to Famous Dave's mostly for the rib tips and they're delicious finger licking good! These rib tips are as closest to the Chicago style rib tips we are going to get.

Ronald Nakasone

Food great. Service great. Beer cold. What more can one ask for?

Jesse Ruegsegger

Awesome BBQ. I've enjoyed everything I've tried.

Large Larry

We have avoided Famous Dave's for years and decided to give it a second chance. We think it has gone downhill even more with smaller portions than before on top of higher prices. Our server did a good job and tried very hard. They offer no real value for your money and our food was just OK at best. We drove past several good restaurants to try Dave's but not on our next trip.

Patrick O'Donnell

Love this place.

Victoria Thomas

Good food although cornbread muffin was a tad bit hard. Fantastic service. Waiter was eager to serve and had great suggestions.

Renee Young

I really had a nice time here. Their credit card machine wasn't working and the manager was on top of things as best as he could. I wish I remembered his name. He really was doing well in a messed up situation, over which he had no control. Some customers weren't happy, but there was a large sign warning everyone of the issue. The food was great and the staff were wonderful. Definitely would go back if I am in town again.

cyntia allen

Chicken sandwich had a lot of gristle in it

Doug Stivers

That brisket sandwich is fabulous. And that their pickles are always award-winning, cornbread is always on point! Service has always been good definitely one of my favorite places

Chris Depuydt

Just did carry out....but service was great and food was good.

Eric West

Tip and ribs were tough as leather. Sides and sauce were tasty. Pulled pork and beef brisket were tender and succulent. Loved the smoky smell of real BBQ being cooked.

Amber Adamowich

The food is great here, and the service is fast. Everything comes out fresh and delicious. Best ribs in Madison.

Jared Wold

This Famous Dave's location is one of the best I've visited. The staff is always friendly and efficient. They do their best to get to know their loyal customers. I've actually visited this location on two of their worst days in the last 10 years. On one of these days, we wanted to beat the intense heat. Since they usually overdo the air conditioning (like most restaurants), we decided to visit partially to cool off. It turned out that their AC was broken. Despite the place being warm, our experience was positive because of how attentive our server was. She made sure cold drinks stayed full and that our stay didn't have to be longer than necessary. On another bad day for them, they were replacing wood and shingles on their roof, with big holes in it. It turned out we had a biblical downpour right over lunch that day. They were banging away trying to cover the openings with plywood while it poured. Lightning struck a tree at the opposite side of their parking lot, which caused power to go out for 5 seconds. When it came back up, we were welcomed by leaks springing up all over. We got reseated twice (big rivulets poured right into my Mountain Dew!) before they figured out where we could sit to avoid leaks. Despite the chaos, our service was still courteous and quick. They got us out of there so we could pick our way through the flooding back to work. The food is very consistent - I usually get a two meat special, which is rarely subpar. Occasionally the brisket is a little dry. Another great item on the menu is the chili and baked potato combo.

Mark Grandau

good food but they messed up the order


Danny Rhoden is correct; best BBQ place around! However, be prepared to fork out the money for the best of the best! Famous Dave's is pleasing to the mouth but definitely not the wallet-however, I think the food is entirely worth it.

Joe cool citizen

I had the burnt ends BBQ sauce on the burnt ends weren't too good too spicy

David Domabyl

Good food.

Daniel Jones

My favorite restaurant!!!

Kirstina Bias

With Famous Dave's you taste more spice and sauce,then you do meat. It makes it hard to tell if the meat is juicy because its cooked well, Or if its juicy because of all the sauce. It does not chew well the next day as left overs it's dry spices & sauce you chewing. The staff there are wonderful, always smiling, and someone greets you as soon as you open the door. Drinks reasonable, Nice bar area if you like cocktails with friends. For that they get a Star.

Steve Golden

Best BBQ this side of St Louis

John Felker

Very slow speed of service in the kitchen. Everytime I try this place, to hopefully redeem themselves, I'm always let down. Over priced for the amount of food.

Scott Ritchie

It was wonderful, the chicken wings were so good, and the we wait staff was super friendly.

Dave and Kyla Bartle

Love all the varieties of bbq sauces you can try. Menu is vast but be careful as many items have a spicy kick to them so ask up front and do not assume. Even the creamy coleslaw has some heat to it

Sebastian Brown

Great service and awesome ribs as always


After I fixed the phone system GREAT

Robert Shore

Sadly many locations are closed. After my visit I immediately realized why. Food quality has gone down. SALTLY and old. Pork and the chicken. Most disappointing was my corn bread was dry. Fell apart before I could eat it.

Jack Ewing

Good service and my wife liked her salad, but my ribs were the toughest I ever had. Very chewy. Don't order their ribs. Not worth the money.

Cheryl Worsham

Good food and friendly service

Barbara Chaney

The food and the service was great!

Billy Boehm

Ordered brisket way too salty Cole slaw tasted weird like it was At room temp too long. Good service I was too tired too complain. I ate here A while back wondering if they changed the Brisket. It was good before. Sauces weren’t Very good this time either

Joyce Wallsmith

Got a to go order. Very fast and friendly. The BBQ sandwiches are piled high. Slaw and baked beans delicious too

Megan Nicola

Very slow waited over a hour and a half just to realize the server didnt put our order in. Continued to wait did not get our apps or a refill. Asked to speak to a manager three times. Not from the area was passing through and heard the food was good though my family would give it a try but ended up leaving after waiting so long. Tried to be patient and understanding but the customer service was not there. The lady beside us asked the server 3 times for silverware they walked away and never brought it back. We will not return.

Nichole Green

The collard greens are a nice added touch to the menu. I wish the menu would have said that the fried boneless chicken wings had a kick to them. My daughter ordered them and could not eat them. That was the only downside to our visit! Ohhh our waiter was perfect!!

Will Brown

Pretty good food great service.

clifford hampton

Great food...really filled me up...looking forward to going back soon.

Brian Lewis

I generally won't post negative reviews but I was do disappointed with lunch today that I have to speak up. First, our server was not good with remembering things or checking on us. For example, she went past our table twice before remembering to bring more ice because the tea was warm. Then when she brought our meals she forgot the muffins and we asked for those and butter. She brought the muffins but no butter so we asked again. Then she brought a little tiny bit of butter and said "It fell out while I was talking." So why bring the tiny bit? Just fix it. The last straw was the quality of the pork. It was literally 25% fat. I asked to speak to the manager. She agreed it was fatty and said "I'll tell the kitchen," but didn't seem sincere. She did offer to give me some meat to take home but we had an appetizer and I did have a nice big baked potato, so I turned down the meat. I did not ask but was disappointed that they didn't take something off the bill. I doubt we go back soon as there are many nearby places to eat.

Christine Hettrick

Good food and good service. They also have a great sauce variety (with full bottles available for purchase). We've gotten eat in and carry out. The two meat combo is a good deal (we usually get ribs and brisket).

Zulneb Marie Pittman

Good service, good food!

Anthony Pietsch

The BBQ quality ranges from decent to bad. I've had good and bad meals here, but no exceptional meals. The service is intolerably bad. Recently, a manager called me about a month after a visit to inquire about how I had paid for my meal a month prior. From the conversation, I got the sense that she was investigating an employee who may have been stealing. Whatever the case, I did not appreciate being randomly interrogated by some restaurant manager weeks after my meal. Honestly, this place probably isn't worth the hassle.

Alan Davis

Low prices good food and service

Monica Flachman

Awesome ribs and very friendly staff!

Laura Rose

Large portions of ok food. Decent service, and quick. Table and condiment bottles were greasy and speckled with old food.


Terrible service. Sat for 40 minutes never even had a server come over once seated. Asked for a server 3 times. Finally ended up leaving. Applebee’s knows what they’re doing at least ;)


Let me first start out by saying Mateo my waiter was phenomenal. The food was excellent and Mateo made sure we had everything that we needed to accommodate our dine in experience. Food was awesome, and I highly recommend trying this barbecue joint out. Thank you keep up the good work

John Doe

Arrived for lunch at noon. The place wasn't busy with many tables open and some needed bust. The older hostess said a 10min wait for the already open tables, this also included the bar area. After waiting 20min my wife and I left to find other ventures to eat at. Pretty good impression for first time diners

Linda Keck

Love their food

James Bates

This place has gone down hill. The service is slow. The female GM is always crabby and just had a I don't care attitude. The appearance of the entire staff is sloppy at best. One waitress hand BBQ sauce hand prints all over her backside. The mentioned GM looked like she just got out of bed from an all nighter. The urinal in the men's room was over flowing...told that waiter who said "Nothing we can do the pipe is froze"..the men's stall door has no way to latch closed, so there is a big wet floor cone to place infront of it to hold it closed. The "burnt ends" were nothing more than cubed brisket. No carmalization or burnt ends characteristics to them at all. The ribs were dry like they were reheated several times. The corn muffins, usually amazing, were doughy in the middle. This once was the best place in Madison for BBQ. After two horrible meals and same observations I will look for BBQ somewhere else. Whoever the owner is, you need new Management staff that cares.

Queen Slay

Food was good... but the wait for our food to come out was really long.

Dark Heart

Very disappointed. Tried ordering through grubhub and called Famous Daves TWICE because it shows that they're closed and both times they STILL did not turn their deliveries on through grubhub. I really had my heart set on some bar-b-que, but I guess I will order mexican food instead. Thanks anyway, Famous Dave's.

Preston Collins

Their BBQ tacos were the freakin best, but they don't have those anymore


Good food great barbecue

Janice Jacobs

People there were so nice and friendly, they weren't too busy when we were there for we had gone early, so a few of the gals got to talk with us, made us feel very much at home. Service was awesome, the food was even better, looking forward to going back soon, way worth the long drive..

Robert Archer

One of our favorite places but today the brisket and turkey were both very dry. Couldn't hardly even cut the brisket. Never had a bad meal there until today. On the plus side, you can't beat their coleslaw and Wilbur Beans.

William Schroeder

The atmosphere they strive to attain to match their famous bbq makes every visit ribilicious.

LaDorn Wilkerson

The server was very good. Matthew you did a Hell of a job. We appreciate you

michelle Spangler

After a slow start, it was an excellent meal and the service was amazing. It was our wedding anniversary and we couldn't have been happier.

Kim Howard

Love their barbecue and onion rings. The banana pudding is yummy

Precious LaShore

Ordered the Founders Feast through DoorDash. Large portions, food tastes great.

matt schmitt

Ribs were extremely dry. Overpriced! Watched an employee drop a tray of corn bread rolls. Picked them up off the floor and re tray them! Employees in kitchen that are preparing food not wearing gloves. Definitely will not be back here.

Jim Grady

The server was fast and friendly. Georgia pork sandwich was good and the bread pudding was fantastic.

Becky Brooking

Service was great. We came early and didn't have to wait on Mother's Day. The server was very gracious and kind and brought refills in a timely manner. The food was fresh and tasty. The bathroom was clean. We will definitely come again!

john soto

Came here with my family last night. Our server barely did her job, my mother had to go to the bar to get our drinks to which the bartender was completely unaware of them being ordered, the appetizers came out after 45 minutes, then about 10 seconds later our dinners came out. Everything was cold, no one got refills, and our server was too busy talking to her friends at one of her tables to have even brought ANYTHING to our table. My pregnant wife had to wait after asking for ranch dressing until the end of dinner. Even after reminding this horrible waitress three times about it. One positive thing did come out of this experience, no one in my family will be eating there again. Thanks Famous Dave's for ruining being able to enjoy seeing my sister who has lived on the opposite side of the country for the past 6 years. If you like being disappointed, having 3rd rate "barbecue" and it getting to you cold and bland...this is your spot.

shelby burns

There's a reason it's called Famous.

KC Miller

We had to wait quite a while for the hostess. I don't recommend the green beans. They tasted like frozen plastic. There was a lot of fat in the meat. The mashed potatoes had that "re-heated" taste. We won't be going back.

Sherie Harris

The only complaint I have is that when they cooked it, I wish it was less barbecue sauce. It all tastes the same when they do that. I'd like to be able to add my own sauce for the flavor I want. They offer 4 or 5 different kinds and what's the point if when you get it, it's already doused in the flavor they used in the kitchen. Other then that, everything is really good. Their cornbread muffins are the best I've ever had. I actually buy theirs in the grocery store.

Steve Allen

My wife and I eat at FD locations all over Wisconsin, and this by far was our worst experience. We waited 15-2O minutes for service and the place wasn’t busy by any means. The waitresses was nice, however, horrible at her job. After placing a order our food came out 30 minutes later, cold, and disgusting. I didn’t bother telling Management because I assume poor management is behind this locations problems. My visit was a waste of money and time.

Charles Chladil

We arrived at 5:20 pm after a show at The Overture Center that was saw. It took 10+ minutes just for us to get a water and an ice tea. We also ordered cheese curds. The cheese curds came and they were still hard in the center not melted. We ate them because our waitress never returned to see if they were okay. At 5:55 she came to inform us that our choice of sides was no longer available. We asked for the check. It took another 15 minutes to get that completed. The manager never came to talk to us. We did hear her explaining to a waitress that people just do not understand they have takeout orders etc to process also. Not going to try this place again. I do not recommend it for service or the foods.

Wendy Kalen

We just love this place! Great food and good service.

Britt Gempeler

Famous Dave's is one of those places you will enjoy. I didn't see any drunken apples on the menu, hope that's not a new thing. Nice barbeque chicken sandwich with the family celebrating a birthday of my son. He had rib tips this time and enjoyed them as well. The service was a little slower this time but they were busier than Ive seen.

Occams Razor

Fantastic ribs.

Bill Burris

Great bbq

Jacqueline Haynie

It was Great! The waiter was good too! W ill be back again Thank you for a wonderful time!

John Stephenson

We had a very nice meal. Sam was our server and she did a great job. My wife and I split the Feast for Two. It included spare ribs, chicken, pulled pork, baked beans, cole slaw, corn on the cob and sweet cornbread muffins. Everything was served hot and tasted good. It could have easily served 3 or 4 if extra muffins were ordered.

Jay Rhodes

Tender fall off the bone ribs, Awesome pulled pork and mac-n-cheese to die for. Always enjoy eating here.

Josh Tabor

Great food. Pretty traditional barbeque and stuff here. A little pricy. Open on new years!

Mike McHone

Great food.The trash can lid feast is awesome.

Janet Willey

Delicious food & great service

Josh C

I took a customer here and had a not so good experience. They did not have ingredients for items in their menu that we found out about that after we ordered. The GM did come out and apologize that they were just switched to a corporate store but you would think they would be ready before opening.

Crystal Bough

If you're looking to be employed here I don't recommend it I've known several people that have worked here and they do not treat their employees fairly

Daniel De Leon

The waiter was so atent, and nice..the food was delicious..I already been 3 times at Dave's and I love their food

Seth Dugger

This place has never disappointed

Kate Pentland

Great place! Fabulous food!

Helmuth Gonzalez

Attendant, Jesse, was great! Ribs were not as soft as I remember... they weren't falling off the bone.

Jeff Mckeighen

Tonight was not their best effort. Service was good and staff was friendly. Maybe next time will be what it supposed to be like.

Cassandra Ferguson

We always have great service here. We often choose the outside seating option and usually order a modified meal. The meal always is made correctly and the team is always happy to help. Great customer service.

James Russell

Service is speedy. Food is exceptional as always. Madison location has a nice bar. Resteraunt is super clean.

Andre Aguilar

The food was surprisingly good. First time here and the food was very tasty and the servings were more than plenty.

Belisa Brownlee

Service wad good, but food was only mediocre.

fortcraftmonster .

To go order took 10 minutes extra than estimate but was incredible food

DJ Sparks

Tasty food

Vickie Wiggins

OMG amazing but didn't like when in went to use the sauce at the bar the bartender stopped me and said no don't drain my sauce I'll get u some from the back and so I stopped and he comes back with a little cup so I rolled my eyes and continued to sauce my 2lbs of rib tips

Deborah Jobe

Dave's sassy bbq salad with Georgia pulled pork is awesome!! Love the muffins too!!

Karyn Berger

Very Delicious Every Time!!

Thomas Nunn

Service and the rib tips were great

Angela Toner

Everyone was very courteous. The food was great! Everyone loved it! I had to wait 30 minutes for the order to be done, so next time (and yes, there will be a next time) I will request the order sooner so I'm not late to the party!

Haley Casler

Walked in and asked for a booth. 8 were visibly open. Host said it would be a 25 minute wait. When asked why she said the kitchen was behind. That is never an excuse to not seat a guest at your resteraunt.

Johnny Rios

Food was great. Meat fell right off the ribs and chicken was tender and juicy. Most definitely eat here again.

Dave Vensel

Good BBQ and good service. I live in Alabama so BBQ is routine here. I thought it was pretty decent for North Dakota.

Inell Williams

First I went to the FD in Plymouth and they had no roasted chicken at 11:30 so I thought I would just go to the one on maple grove and this location forgets my fries. I am so pissed. My order cost me almost 60 dollars and they forget the fries. So people check your order when you go to famous Dave's. #not the first time

Juanita Williams

Excellent food. I enjoyed all of it.

Chris Sturdivant

Pricey, but the food is good.

Ken Valento

I went there for my birthday dinner and ordered the burnt ends. I got 5 burnt ends and a huge pile of the onion rings. I asked the manager why I only got 5 and he said it is based on weight. One of them was a half a piece. What at absolute waste of a dinner and a dumb response to my issue. It used to be good years ago, but their standards are horribly low.

Todd Seemann

Service and food we're both good.


Food was just ok! I actually expected the food to be better and I was let down! Maybe it was just this particular restaurant. The prices were fair however.

Marilyn Carey

Great service, good brisket sandwich and chips. It was a pleasant experience.

Mr. Jack

Some of the best ribs in town....hand's down.....I can still taste them.....smh

adam dibbern

Great service. Love the atmosphere and the food. Pricey, but worth it.


Well, we were here back in May then the manager on duty reeked of alcohol. My complaint with the corporate office yielded a $40 gift card. Today we returned, and still not impressed. Four times our server stopped by the table, my glass of ice tea set empty on the edge of the table, four different times. Never once offered a refill, never once was it acknowledged that it was empty. Oh well, the training of their wait staff will either make or break a restaurant. Sorry Kaidee, your tip was in the refill i never received, maybe your next customer will feel better. Oh & what cornbread muffin? ...was a white bread dinner roll... nobody said they were substituting it for a Hawaiian roll.

Kayla Watson

The food is great! And the staff is very nice no complaints! And the bread pudding is to die for

Tammy Puckett

Great food!! One of my favorite places to eat!

joshua mcnerney

Carissa, our bartender was amazing!

Harrison Miller

I discovered famous Dave's 10 years ago. The food is always cooked to perfection. Can't wait for location to come to the Atlanta area

Amanda Thayer

Our server was very nice and I was really impressed by his knowledge of all the different menu items and BBQ sauces. The food was also really good. We had a great experience!

Jody Bones

There is not a minus or it would have been my choice. My husband went there on Sunday to pick up our Sunday dinner. What a HUGE MISTAKE. The ribs were black and the baked potato was rotten on one end. When he went back the next day to ask for the money back, the manager admitted that they new the ribs were burned, she guessed they missed the potato. Sorry about that. She said it was against company policy to give refunds, who in their right mind would want a replacement meal or coupons for another meal when the first meal was terrible. Seems to me they must get many asking for refunds for BAD FOOD if that really is their policy. The manager is very RUDE.STEER CLEAR OF THIS PLACE. IF THE POTATOES ARE ROTTEN, WHAT ABOUT THE MEAT?

Harolene Reese

Our waitress was Amazing! The food however was not. The food however was not! The ribs We're over sauced and burnt and the rib tips We received were dry And hard. They did Give us brisket because of the awful rib Tips. The worst of ever had from famous Dave's. Again our waitress was Amazing!!!

Cole Tix

This was pretty bad. We chose this out of quite a few BBQ places in the area given the reviews. Bad choice. The ribs were 80% fat. The brisket was far too dry and chewy. The "family sized" anything was made for a family of one... And to top it off they forgot part of the order. Not a good experience. 1/10 would not even give them a second chance. Just because it's expensive doesn't make it good.

Zig Zag

We have been to this restaurant a few times over the years. The BBQ has been OK during this time. My wife's favorite appetizer is salmon spread with flatbread. The wait staff was friendly; didn't have to ask for refills. OK experience.

Amy Someone

Food was great and very fresh! The sweetest thing was when my 2 year old dropped his corn a lady going to the kitchen area saw it picked it up and 2 others assured me they would get my son a fresh clean corn on the cob and they didn't charge me. Great service we will be back.

Fabian Torres

Very friendly service and great food. If you go, the ribs are a must get!

Scott Tufvander

You have to order off a menu on the wall that doesn't described any of the dishes. Whats on the ultimate burger?Whats a jacked burger? It doesn't say. Try to ask the lady at the counter but she's busy helping people. This ordering system is beyond stupid. I left without eating.

Sandra Reames

Weed at Famous Dave's quite a few times and we live here. It started off a little rough with them wanting to see this in the bar and we don't drink but after we got through with the hostess and the seating everything worked out really well good food and then exceptionally good waitress. We always go for the ribs and onion rings. A really healthy meal but it's worth every bite. We can run around the block tomorrow.

Leandra DeLeon

Bbq tasted like ketchup on my BBQ pulled chicken!! Also the chicken itself wasn't that great either.

Robert Stevenson

They gave me the center cut like I asked. But it was still kind of dry. But like the effort!

Kh Weth

Delicious but pricey

Zebrayah Morrison

The service was wonderful we tipped the waiter well. My dude had Beef spare rib, it is LARGE and falls straight off the bone. I had rib tip we also had mac and cheese mashed potatoes and beans. Everything was cooked to perfection. But the corn bread was the best.

Rachael Ramsay

The decor was overwhelming. Food was good. When they brought me what I ordered, that is.

JR Global Video

Delicious ribs tips and drink

Maggie Kohls

Good menu. I feared it would be more limited. Nice patio

Kay O'connor

Great BBQ. Great soul food. Great staff. Surprisingly fast. Price is reasonable. They're on Door Dash too.

#ConcreteBella #ConcreteBella


William Law

Food is

Cindy Quinn

I enjoy going to Famous Dave's. Good food and pleasant staff.

Lindsay Keller

Fast friendly service, great atmosphere, delicious food!

Dave Wells

Service was barely available, took our orders, 5 minutes later we got our drinks. 20 minutes no service no nothing. 30 minutes later couples that came in after us are served food. Left to dollars and told host I'm gone. Should have at least said we're running behind or something.

Susan L.

They have the best Chicken Wild Rice soup!! Plus, their BBQ sauces are great...such a variety!

Shawn Horrigan

Good was good. Atmosphere was nice. Server was an absolute pest. No one time should have been sufficient to convey the fact that my wife and I did not want an appetizer or alcohol. Experience was a little annoying.

f anderson

Great experience, wonderful waitress and great food! Enjoyed.

Thomas Winter

Food was hot, food was correct, drinks were good. Place was freshly painted and looked open and clean. Service was slow to get to table and slow to clear plates.

Rashell Chaloenvanijvisit

Great service but I got food poisoning. Teaches me to go there on mother's day.

Joshua Bieber

Service was horrible, food was great! But didn't get refills also had to tell the waitress what meals we had so they could split the check, then they got the checks wrong. Took 20-30 mins to finally get the checks and they were still wrong.

Kardiyer Daily

Food was pretty good. Enjoyed corn muffins they are sweet. We ordered $61 platter had ribs, a whole chicken, chopped pork, sliced brisket, corn on cob, fries, beans, coleslaw and corn muffins. Would have liked more brisket and less chicken. I would visit again. 1 knife was dirty and table had something sticky on it but service and food quality is a 4

Jean Roeth

Has great food and the grandkids love it there. We can always find something delicious to eat!

Russ Allright Rosencrans

Famous BarBQ and Service always above and beyond. Fair price, for best BarBQ in Town.

David Wallen

BBQ was tender and server was nice. Will definitely recommend and or go back.

Ian Ramirez

It's somewhat shameful for Kansas City that a place like this stays in business when there are so many other superior BBQ options in town.

Joan Rath

Food was very hot as it should be not like warm an fresh an tasty....

rodney griffith

Excellent food- try the brisket! Great portions. Hot link sausage is great!

Paul Gauthier

Great BBQ food at a reasonable price and very friendly staff.

Gloria Mink

If this is the Famous Dave's in Bismarck. GREAT SERVICE! GREAT FOOD, For Sure will return

moses heigis

Waited 45 mins for a simple Mac an cheese to be made

coco Cot

Love there food it always hot in Fresh when we do a to go order and I love the fact if they mess up something they will correct it and make you fresh food

Lindsay White

Good barbecue for pretty good prices. They were able to accommodate a large group with little notice and did great given how many of us there were!

Denise Whaley

Great Service, Always Busy. A Lot Of People Visit Here. A Good Place To Dine, And A Very Nice Atmosphere Also. People Who Work Here Are Very Nice, And They Smile @ You, When They Talk To You.

Mayra Gonzalez

Diana and Taylor by far the most attentive hosts I've ever met.

Brenda Pinkney

All good except the rib tips which were too hard/dried, over cooked to eat. They use to be one of my favorites, won't buy again. Ribs were great so I'll stick with that only whenever I return again.

Donna Westbrook

Had Georgia pork bbq... wonderful! Came with choice of sauces, corn muffin, and two sides...the grilled pineapple was a nice treat and something different. Others in our party had ribs that they said were perfect and burgers perfectly to their liking. Only gave 4 stars for slow service.

Kathi Onthenet

We arrived at shortly before 6pm on a Friday evening. We were lucky that someone was pulling out right in front of the entrance. It really wouldn't have been in issue since there is a parking lot shared amongst several restaurants, as well as a huge lot a few steps across the road. They have a great assortment of smoked meats, and a wonder assortment of sides to accompany them. They have a half a dozen choices for barbecue sauce, so there's a good chance you're going to find one that is to your liking. I'm sure there are some things on the menu that a vegan might eat, but the choices are fairly limited considering there is bacon in the green beans. They have a reasonable list of beers and cocktails to go along with the food too. The service was very good, and their prices are reasonable. It is a good, consistent dining option for those in the mood for barbecue.

Iris Schmidt

First timers at Famous Dave's. My young family of four ate here at lunch today (tired and hungry 3 and 6 yrs olds). Our server never came to our table after waiting nearly 10 minutes after being seated. I had to ask another waitress to see if someone is assigned to help us. Despite this, the food was delicious and we appreciated that the staff apologized and made sure we were taken care of. Thanks to the staff for their teamwork and turned our almost negative experience to a positive one! We will return again!

Rustin Keller

Famous Dave's is a decent BBQ restaurant. Nice size portions, a little high on the prices and lot of sauces to choose from. There are better places for BBQ in and around the KC area

Kevin Nelson

This Famous Dave's has the worst service out of every one I have ever visited. My tream ordered a group lunch. They totally messed up our order and it took them an hour to fix it. They were rude and slow. They 're offer to make it better was 3 sodas. Do not go to this location.

Elisha McCall III

Good place too eat

unkown human

Love happy hour.

Deb Davis

Great good food and decent prices!!!

Elizabeth Dougherty

Went for take out, service was excellent! Helped me to figure out just what I wanted

Chris Johnson

I've given this restaurant many chances but they always mess up. Always forget something, and now just served me raw chicken. Not pleased and will not be back.

Jarred Reed

Phenomenal food. Brisket is great and the best salmon ive ever had. Best corn muffins too.

Chey Monks

The staff was very nice, place was nice and clean. However all of the barbecue sauce tasted vinegary. How are you famous for barbecue sauce and it taste like vinegar

Hubert Green

Great food, Super staff. We rolled into town a little late and Dave's was one of the only places open after 9pm. (Closes at 10:00) Not going to bed hungry tonight, Thanks Erin.(server)

Martina Clarke

I love Famous Dave's! I took my husband there for Father's Day. They had an unlimited ribs special. Unfortunately they couldn't keep up with the demand. They only served 4 ribs at a time and my husband only got 2 servings in an hour window. He also had to wait at least 20 minutes between plates. He got frustrated and we left. We know not to order the unlimited ribs special next time. Other than their food is always tasty!

Akiesha Crystal

Great tasty BBQ, nice atmosphere...

Taylor Householder

5 stars isn't enough. From the moment you walk in the door, sweet Sarah seats you and gives you your menus. Our server was fantastic, checked on us multiple times, made great recommendations, and was very prompt with quite a few tables to handle. By far, the BEST bbq chopped pork and coleslaw. Even the pickles are fantastic. Highly recommend if you are traveling through the area!

Matt Buchner

Great bbq food, great service, I think the grilled chicken is like, the bomb.

Ms. Andrews

The girls that work there are sweet

Karen Coley

Without any promoting from anyone, our waitress, Madison realized who our birthday guest was and surprised all of us with a birthday icecream sparkle. We will definitely be returning. It's so nice to know your host is aware and proactive in their guest enjoying their visit.

Frank Harrison

I can't find a bad Dave's anywhere. But I did notice a menu item here that I did not see at my last two visits in Ohio and KC, KS. Kinda weird.

Luna Frenaa

Just wow! The pulled pork sandwich is so amazing I stopped mid eating to write this review. Nice bun toasted, tender pork, awesome slaw and pickles! Sooo good.

Michelle Morency

Horrible experince- wait staff needs to be retrained on how to treat customers. Food was mediocre- sat at bar for 20 minutes waiting for a drink.

Philip Klugman

Good lunch deals. The bbq is what is to be expected from a chain. It’s good for being “mass” produced. Nice thing is that it is consistent every time, the brisket and rib tips are my go to, 9 times out of 10 it’s very good. The solid choices of BBQ sauces is good, I really hate the bbq places that try to get fancy with their sauces, sauce should NOT have mangoes or peaches in it! The staff is very friendly! They do a good job with cleaning the tables and bringing food out swiftly.

Fred Johnson

Excellent food. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. The brisket was the best I've had from anywhere, and there's a nice selection of sauces to accommodate almost anyone.

Mukul Nautiyal

We have been to many famous Dave's, this one was the worst experience ever. The management is really bad. They are impolite. It took them 40 mins to bring the food out and it was wrong order. They basically said you can have the wrong one.

Lynn Stocking

Food, Atmosphere & you never leave hungry

Kathy Anne

Great service! Our server Junior was amazing! He was so attentive and kind. He cleared our table when we were finished with the appetizer and any napkins. I highly recommend the catfish sticks! You wouldn't think they're any good but they are yum!

Nikki Meeks

Always excellent food. We always get feast for two an always have enough to take home!! Servers are super friendly!!

Kim Davis

Had the drink of the day. Raspberry Vodka cooler. AMAZING. The server Anissa was the sweetest server and very knowledgeable. The Manager Tab made my drink for me and even came over to see how I liked it. Definitely a place I'll be back to.

Jennifer Roedersheimer Miller

Food is good,service was good as well


Best bbq I've had in a long time

Ryan M

Service was great! Food wasn't as I remembered but I would go back

Crystal Womack

This place is great the food is so good every year my husband and I come to Las Vegas we always come here to eat. The waitresses are very friendly but the food just blows you away. Best BBQ hands down.

Bryan Wood

Great BBQ and staff !

Zombie GameZ

Very friendly staff and they still seated us even though we got there late. Food was fantastic and budget friendly. They didn't rush us to get out and made sure we had everything we needed.
