Outlet of a barbecue chain serving wood-smoked meats & sides in an American West-themed space.
Issue always with my orders barley hot, no sause, napkins , or forgetting a side from my order. But famous Dave’s Bar-B-Que is anazing the taste is great.
I normally frequent this restaurant and it has been a family favorite . I just went to the North Riverside location last week. I ordered online and per the website I ordered curbside. When I arrived, I was told no curbside. I was denied the coupon ($10 off of $30 or more to go ) because it states not valid with online orders . How else am I supposed to place a to go order? Now it seems there is another coupon this week that is to go and you give a code to use at checkout, you encourage ordering online and then in fine print you state coupon not valid with orders online. NOT COOL. I wanted curbside last week …..so I pre-paid. It stated to show credit card when I pick up. I could not get the coupon because I pre-paid. How else am I supposed to pay with a credit card curbside? Then I get there and I call to tell them I am here and they tell me I have to come in that they do not have curbside. Too many people inside….and definitely no way to stay 6 feet apart! Very bad experience. What a shame because I have always had such good experiences there in the past. Kathy Gallo
They have the same drive through like for pickup and standard ordering took me an HOUR to get through that line so my food was an hour past ready. Girls at front rude. This is trash. Update: food was ice cold and when I asked for a refund the staff was rude and the manager on duty was hiding from customers in the ally and having staff say there is no manager in duty. Sorry kids it’s law. Literal idiots here.
**REFUSED TO SEAT US** Extremely disappointed in today’s visit. It was my younger sisters 19th birthday and out of all of the places in Chicago, she wanted Famous Dave’s. We had a large party (9) so we understood there would be a wait… no problem. My brother arrived there before all of us around 7:30 pm and checked in (or so he thought). They told him it would be an hour wait. He said that’s fine. We all waited in the lobby until an employee asked us if we were still waiting for a table… well, yes, that’s why we’re here in the lobby. 30 minutes of waiting, they came up to my brother and asked for his information. They saw us waiting and waited 30 minutes to take our information down for a table and told us to wait outside. I just have a big feeling they were trying to discourage us from dining there. Fine. 30 minutes later, a server comes out and tells us she wouldn’t be able to seat us because we are a large party and because of COVID-19 precautions. Understandable, but why didn’t anyone tell this an hour ago? We could have gone somewhere else. Which we ultimately had no choice and did. Olive Garden sat us down in less than 20 minutes, together in one table, no problem at all. I just didn’t like how we were treated today. If your establishment can’t handle large parties, let the party know beforehand so we don’t waste our time. I should have read the reviews before even coming here. Looks like this place is just in really bad shape, hope you guys clean it up.
Good food great waitress very energetic Ribs good and catfish is good try it out. Went to Vegas me and my wife ate the food. The waitress let’s us try the banana pudding it was. Very good. So we bought some and took it home with us. Next time I go to Vegas I will eat at famous daves
They nasty af and i had hair on my food management did nothing about it but brought me out new brisket didn’t deduct drinks nothings. Unprofessional asf
Mmmm, food is delicious here! Meat is perfect ( baby back ribs half rack), fries and beans also! I was full after 3 bites but couldn’t stop eating . On top of that I had a coke and wasn’t able to drive back . Highly recommend!
Perfect meal this past weekend during lockdown! We got a sampler platter, a kids meal and six muffins and everything was gone in short order. The pulled pork is my favorite and kids love the chicken. Husband likes the ribs and coleslaw. A great delivery option!
The fries were so good! So glad we ordered 2 sides of fries. That gets 5 stars. They were also still crispy and warm when they got here 20 minutes later. They’re wedge slices. I don’t know what sorcery they use. Haha The rest of the meal was okay. The value was pretty good because we were both stuffed afterwards. I didn’t like the corn in the mac and cheese, I bit into a piece of corn that was tougher than expected because it was closer to the cob. The peppers in the mac and cheese can stay though. The sandwich was fine, the boyfriend liked the pickles, the sauces they provide are very good. Devil’s spit is more runny than the sassy sauce, but still delivered good flavor. The ribs are pretty fatty and have cartilage. The rub they use is very good but I think it was cooked on too high heat and too quickly. The corn bread was a little dry. I wish I had honey at home to put on top. The packaging is great though. They line the boxes with aluminum foil to prevent leaks and the boxes for the food pretty well. They included 5 moist towelettes which was definitely enough.
