MADE-FROM-SCRATCH GOODNESS

A passion for authentic BBQ is behind everything we do. Our pitmasters get their hickory logs smoldering around 4 a.m. We start with top quality meats, hand-rub them with fresh spices, and slow-cook them to perfection.

Famous Dave’s is committed to working with our vendors and suppliers for the procurement of only cage free eggs by 2025.

FAMOUS DAVE: HE’S THE REAL DEAL!

Raised by Southern-born BBQ lovers in a world of street-corner barrel smokers, Famous Dave spent 25 years visiting thousands of BBQ joints. After decades pulling his own all-night cooking sessions, he felt he was ready to open his own BBQ place in 1994. Get the full story on the first ever “Famous Dave’s.

AMERICA’S MOST AWARD-WINNING RESTAURANT

Our passion for BBQ is famous! We’re honored to be consistently chosen as America’s favorite BBQ restaurant. We also like heading out to competitions and putting our BBQ up against what the other elite pitmasters are cooking. To date, we’ve won more than 700 awards!
