I've been around a number of places and had BBQ at some darn good restaurants and have a good idea of what I like (keep this in mind). I does not touch Brooks BBQ in Oneonta NY, but is pretty good for the meal deal I got to trial. Corn Cake (not Cornbread) muffins (too sweet, but you may like that); brisket was good and tender, but the sauce lied (Hell Sauce was NOT HOT!); ribs were okay, but try out Calhouns On-The-River (Knoxville/Lenoir City); the chicken was okay too. Good enough for my boys pallet, but I'm pickier because of being to Oklahoma, Texas and New York and maybe there is someplace out there that will knock my socks off.

Pros: Friendly to newbie in town

Cons: Not as good as back home in Oneonta NY (Brooks BBQ)

There are lots of competitors in this category of dining, and I've tried them all. But food at Famous Dave's has the best flavor, hands down! I love the brisket, and even friends from Texas tell me it's authentic - the best they've had outside of their great state. My kids go nuts over the ribs. The meat falls off the bone. My wife is into the roasted chicken, which is marinated, not BBQ'd and always moist and flavorful. The atmosphere is great and servers are friendly. When there's a wait, we like to order togo and take it home. I've even had them cater my company picnic and the catering manager Richard, took care of every detail, so things were smooth and I didn't have to worry.

Pros: Great choices, great value and nice family atmosphere

Cons: portions are huge! Every time I go there, I overeat!

I RECENTLY DISCOVERED A BARBEQUE RESTURANT THAT I JUST CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF. THE FOOD IS VERY REASONALBLY PRICED AND THE SERVICE IS EXCELLENT. ALTOUGH IF YOU ARE DINING ON A WEEKEND YOU CAN EXPECT TO HAVE A WAIT FOR A TABLE. THE MENU HAS A GREAT SELECTION AND THE FOOD TASTES GREAT.

PROS: GREAT FOOD AND FRIENDLY STAFF
CONS: SOMETIMES THERE IS A WAIT FOR A TABLE
