Located near Arbor Lakes Mall off of 94. Our authentic BBQ starts in a live-wood smoker stoked with genuine hickory logs. Our pitmasters hand-rub the meats with a custom blend of spices and cook for hours to extract the natural flavors. We source the highest quality meats and trim them up like we’re in a competition and hand-rub them with the freshest seasonings available to create mouthwatering experiences! In addition to our BBQ and grilled meats, our menu features a selection of salads, sandwiches, side items, and made-from-scratch desserts.

    When we arrived for our reservation at 6PM we were not even recognized as waiting customers. We watched several employees help multiple to go orders before we were finally helped. A line of 10+ customers formed behind us waiting as well. Finally was helped. Asked if a high top would be okay. We said no due to we having several shorter in stature people in our party. The host then preceded to look at the computer for about 5 minutes. Disappeared and came back. Then stated it would be an additional 25-30 minute wait for a low top. When we look around the restaurant there was at least 4 low tops that were available. Then when we finally said okay to the high top he had to go CLEAN a table for us to sit. What the Hell?? I will say that at least our server was on the ball and was doing the best she could as she was the bartender as well. Overall the food was hot and yummy. The server was good, patient, and willing to help us out. I wouldn't trust the reservation system there. Plan on waiting extra time even with a reservation.

    Our waiter was great however he informed us he and another server were the only 2 on. He was punctual however he ran from 1 table to another spending a few seconds at each. A place that size definitely needs more than 2 servers.

    The brisket wasn’t as good this week as it was last week. It wasn’t quite as Lean and didn’t have the same tenderness and flavors last week.

    The ribs were excellent. The service was great. We were disappointed in that we had a table by the patio and for some reason the noise level was quite loud. Not much that could be done. But it was disappointing.

    Great service! Food was way off. We’ve noticed Famous Dave’s meat quality is going downhill. Brisket was more fat than meat for both my wife’s salad and my brisket. Portions are also very small. Just doesn’t add up for what Famous Dave’s used to be.

    On the Open Table reservations it told me that we were going to be sitting outside! I was a little worried until we told them that we were there! It is 11 below zero outside. I was sure hoping we would not be outside! We were not! Next time do not even put that on the app please!
