My husband and I had never heard of Famous Dave's until a few months ago. When by chance, we happened to have stopped there to get something to eat after a night at the movies. The ambience was very nice. It was cozy like your grandfather's fishing cottage cozy. Very welcoming. We were pleasantly surprised at the affordable prices and progressed to ordering. The ribs were to die for. So was the pulled pork. We have no complaints about Dave's other than perhaps they gave too much. Try it and you won't be disappointed. You'll definitely get your money's worth.
