So I have given Famous Dave's manager, Dave an opportunity to make things right, but after a month, no follow-up call. So here you go Dave, thanks for your hospitality. Went to FD about 3 weeks ago, rode our Harley's (which might have caused them to assume we were hulligans). We were $20 short in our change, tried to rectify the discrepancy and were asked to leave the restaurant because we were stealing from them. If that were in fact the case, we wouldn't have given the waitress the $23 tip. I manage a $18 M budget, and you accuse us of stealing. We will never come back to your establishment if this is how you treat your guests. NO THANK YOU MANAGER DAVE. And to all Harley riders, stay away, they think we are thief's.

BEST RIBES EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – I'm sorry if I did this badly, but this is my first time.

This please gave me instant gratification. First: I had fast serves, she gave me my drink within 15 Secants, and she gave me my food in under a minute, Second: the food was excellent.

Warning to you BYU fans: when you walk in through the door, there is a giant UTS flag in front of you.

RIBS!!! – Just a year ago, an old friend took me to his high school's homecoming. We arrive at Famous Dave's to meet 4 or 5 other couples. The dress i wore we much different from the other girls present. They each wore a dark, half length, small, easy to fit in, dress. While I had spent lots of time and energy to look as adorable and grown up as I could. I wore a long dark skirt with a tight corset. I ordered my full raque of ribs dripped with bbq sause. They were so tender, juicy, and messy. I was enjoying my face in my meal. I look, with my mouth full of meat, down my table and noted that all the girls, including some boys, ordered a very large salad, later, which they could not finish.

My date proudly anounced, once again, that I was his girl. I laughed.

Famous Dave's atmosphere is so cozy, the ole western feel, taste, look, and smell, brings a good taste of beer and ribs!

Typical chain lookin restaurant with some goot ribs!!!! – I'm always up for some good food and willing to travel the distance. I decided to go to this FAMOUS DAVE'S, it's a clean restaurant with the typical chain look. Prompt seating and service was excellent!! Huge selection of food from fish, appettizer's, sausage, chicken, ribs, sandwiches, etc. I received my food quickly which was RIBS! Since I heard so much bout dem ribz I was just tempted on trying them!!! They had a great taste, great sauce! The only major complaint was they were quite costly for the amount provided. The prices are what you would typically see in TGIF, Tony Roma's, etc. For a great example check out Sonny Bryan's, Jim Neely's Interstate BBQ, Arthur Bryant's. A all located in other states and world famous for BBQ.

No Coke so not highly recommended – All of the food is GREAT and extremely enjoyable Q!! The ONLY negative (and THIS is a HUGE negative) is that they have Pepsi products and NO COKE (if restaurants want to have Pepsi they should also have "the real thing" which is Coke!)! Because of this, instead of being able to dine there and enjoy it, I'm forced to usually get takeout and enjoy my coke with it at home! I've never attempted to take my OWN Coke into Famous Dave's, however, which is a possibility. That's why my rating here is RECOMMENDED instead of HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Amazing BBQ in SLC – Before coming to Utah, I thought that the best BBQ I had tried was the Salt Lick in Austin,TX, but now that I have tried Famous Daves, I don't regret moving to Utah from Texas, as I can still enjoy great BBQ.

We asked for takeout, just to try this restaurant, the ribs, the sausage links that we ordered were amazing, their spicy BBQ sauce is extremely good, but you really don't need it as the Ribs and Sausages have BBQ flavor all over them.

Price was more than fair for the amount of food we received, service was prompt and helpful.

I am already hooked to this BBQ restaurant, greatly recommended

Mediocre at Best – I'm from Chicago and love great ribs! The ribs at Famous Dave's were mediocre at best. We're baby back rib fans because they are so tender and moist-Famous Dave's doesn't even offer them! The "charred" flavor of the ribs tasted burned to me. We won't be back.

Good sauce adn just average ribs – Plenty of sauces to try, most are good. Do try the Devil's Spit. It's not hot.

Potato salad was ech.

Ribs are smoked and held, then grilled to reheat. Poor method and ruins the flavor.
