I'm reading these reviews and can't believe it. My girlfriends and I were just there. Maybe these people had a strange off nite, cause ours was great! Pulled Pork was really good, lots of foods. We couldn't finish with two sides options. Well drinks were perfect and only complaint, one of us has a martini off the martini menu and thought it was TOO strong. We're going back this weekend again. Everyone's taste is different. I say try if for yourself. They have a BBQ sauce selection right on the tables in tubes, have fun with it. Be careful "Devil's spit" will make you need another drink.

Went on a Friday night with a few friends. Although the portions were generous, the food itself was lacking, bland -- downright bad. Drinks were watered down, waitress not attentive at all. What are they famous for again?

When you walk in, the place is huge. We went for lunch on a weekday and there were surprisingly few tourists there which was nice. The prices were relatively high, but not outrageous. I got a grilled chicken sandwich. The portion was comically huge. They gave me this tiny bun for chicken that was the size of the plate. Their bbq sauces are pretty good. I would go back at some point, especially if I was in the area and wanted a drink and decent BBQ.

Where do I begin? The food was bland and boring, the calorie counts next to each item were completely off-putting with some entrees reaching past the 2000 mark. Instant heart attack! We asked for a glass of milk for our little guy and were told by the waitress that she could not find any milk in the restaurant. Ummm, what are they making the corn bread with? Lard? And the fried chicken batter? I shudder to think. Prices are typically Times Square outrageous. It was just all around bad.

Fabulous meal was had at a return visit. Spacious upper floor with a comfortable view of the restaurant below. Food was served hot and fast. We had the feast for 2 and easily fed 5 hungry people. A great value in Times Square. The meal comes on a trash cah lid placed in the center of the table on a platform making it fun to have everyone dig in!!! The chicken and ribs are scrumptious - you don't even have to chew. The cole slaw is homemade and delicious. Cant think of anyplace better for this type of food.

This place was a rip off. The food, though portions are huge, is not that good and definitely not worth the money. The service was lacking so I was able to stare at the walls and enjoy the ambiance of the place. Happy hour drinks are good and can't go wrong at $3 a beer. Had the Nachos for appetizers. I basically paid for a $14 bag of unsalted Tostito chips. The fixin's were very scarce. Had the meal for two and the ribs were subpar (they did not fall off the bone), the chicken was very dry, the french fries had no taste what so ever. The only good part of the meal was the tasty pulled pork and coleslaw. This place calls out tourist trap and if you gonna spend the quality dollars anyway then opt for a good steakhouse instead.

As an annual visitor to NYC from the UK I am quite particular about where I eat and am dubious about chain restaurants in tourist areas. I have to say that I was surprised by Famous Dave's. The quality of the food here is amazing and the burgers are as mentioned in the last post, vastly understated. They are colossal and extremely tasty, especially when topped with Georgia Pork. The meat dishes are cooked to perfection and there are a variety of different BBQ sauces on your table that you can add to your meal, the aptly titled "Devil's Spit" being the hottest. If you like your BBQ and Burgers then this place is a must. Great food, attentive staff and a great atmosphere. Give it a whirl and I'm sure you won't be disappointed
