I tried it. Big mistake, especially since I have been a regular at Buz and Ned's for over 10 years. They should change the name to INFamous Dave's! The food is mediocre (at best), service is slow and un-friendly (at best) and the prices versus value are way too high. My beef brisket was dry and tough. The only way I could eat it was by smothering it in their "world famous" BBQ sauce. Our waitress looked and acted like an escaped convict waiting to make her next score. She was the pits! This was my first and LAST visit!

P.S. The flies seemed to enjoy it much more than we did!

Bring your appetite. Bring the Kids. No skimpy portions. Excellent food.
It is very seldom, that my husband or I can finish what we have ordered.
The portions are generous. Good BBQ good Eating, and easy on your wallet.

I've eaten at Famous Daves twice, and was underwhelmed both times. The service was fine- and the decor on the walls was fun to look at, but overall? Meh. The barbeque wasn't anything special, and it really felt like the average chain restaurant. The servers seemed very rehearsed, like they had certain things that had to say. My husband wasn't impressed with the ribs at all (very dry), and my barbeque was OK, but nothing memorable.
There are too many other really authentic local BBQ places in and around Richmond for me to be a fan of Famous Daves. I'd rather go to Virginia BBQ in Ashand, or Buz and Neds, King's in Petersburg, or even Bill's Barbeque (just to get a limeaid- their BBQ isn't that great either.)

This is one of the best bbq places in Richmond. They have a dinner for two that really can feed 3. The food comes on an upturned garbage can lid (don't worry, its clean) and allows you to taste all of their food, which include bbq chicken, beef brisket, pork ribs, a number of different sides. If I called a number to do a survey they gave me a free dessert on the next visit.
