Restaurant Review

Famous Dave's, a BBQ chain with 5 locations in New Jersey, is popular with families and people who love good slow-smoked BBQ served in large portions at a reasonable price.

Famous Dave's style of BBQ cooking is a blend of some of the best regional styles of BBQ cooking that come from the BBQ hot beds of Kansas City, the Southern foothills of Missouri, Georgia, Memphis, the Carolinas, and Texas.

To complement the style of cooking, Famous Dave's offers a variety of tasty styles and spicy BBQ sauces.

This is a casual eatery with a fun, frat-house atmosphere that serves up the full range of BBQ dishes with good, friendly service.

Save room for dessert and try the Bread Pudding, it's a huge portion sprinkled with a praline sauce and big dollop of vanilla ice cream on one side and another of whipped cream on the other side.

The wait staff is well trained, attentive and friendly.

They are very family and kid friendly.

Famous Dave's offers full service catering and delivery for large groups.
