If you LOVE BBQ this is for you! – I want great taste, good value, & an appropriate atmosphere. Famous Daves has all the above. Most SLC restaurants cater to the bland pallet no guts same old, same old, blaaaa! Let's compare a few of the favorite SLC BBQ shops 1.) Sugar-House BBQ is kind of bland and not near as generous as FD's. 2.) The Q on the other hand reheats dry, over cooked meat then they try to hide that fact by smothering it in an average BBQ sauce, besides that, they are over priced. If you have had real BBQ around the country, in places like Memphis, Tennessee or Oklahoma, or even Texas, you know what BBQ is supposed to taste like. Famous Dave's is as close as your going to get to real BBQ. Famous Dave's is the exception here. The food is wonderful, servings are generous.

I wish Dave were my brother... – This place is great! Best BBQ in SLC (I actually go to the one in Layton), it's noisy enough that your kids will fit right in (there's even a roll of paper towels for when your 4-yr old inevitably spills his drink), and service is fast and friendly. I've thought about getting a job there just so I can eat there more often!

Some tasty tasy BBQ – Try the BBQ chicken with pulled pork. It's tender and tasty!

The selection of sauces at each table are great. A vast variety.

A good place for a group dinner.

Husband loves, I think it's so-so – My husband loved the rib tips, I'm not a huge barbeque fan so I got a salad, wasn't that impressed! Most of the time steakhouses have good salads, but I thought it was just so-so

BEST BARBECUE! – Visited for the first time last Tuesday for lunch. Being a recent Virginia arrival, I've had my share of barbecue and Famous Dave's is WAY UP THERE! Excellent atmosphere, good service, and the food speaks for itself. The roasted chicken was wonderful, with great sides of fries, corn, and corn muffin. Ended with their famous bread pudding! You've got to have it! Big enough to share!

Famous Daves is Da Bomb – Famous Daves is the best BBQ restaurant in SLC hands down. I mean, where else can you go hungry to a restaurant, order your food, have it delivered on a garbage can lid, and leave completely satisfied (and with some leftovers as well)? The answer: only at Famous Daves, the best darn BBQ Salt Lake City has to offer

Jeckyl/Hyde – This place is either really good and quick, or painfully slow. My wife and I went to eat Sunday afternoon. We got right in to sit down within 5 minutes, ordered, and had to wait 33 minutes for a sandwich. The chicken on my sandwich was burned black. The waiter was apologetic, saying how busy they were, but a group that came in about ten minutes after us, was served their food before us. I'll have to be VERY hungry before I go back. We've had much better service there.
