Famous Dave's Bar-B-Que

A fun family destination with good music and an energetic staff. From Texas beef brisket to chopped pork to rib plates (from four to 12 bones), there's plenty of BBQ to go around. Go with a group and get the "Dave's Famous Feast," a plethora of goods that will feed up to six. Catering is a specialty of Famous Dave's. Private party room, Friday fish fry.

Do you judge a rib by how easily it falls off the bone? If so, then Famous Dave's isn't for you. But if you like ribs the way they should be then this is the place to go for BBQ in Eau Claire. True, it's a chain restaurant, but they've got great food, consistency, a nice selection of sauces (my favorite is the Texas Pit), plenty of seating space, fun atmosphere, and they understand what many locally owned restaurants don't: a good staff and good customer service are the most important things of all. Sure, there are hundreds of BBQ joints better than Famous Dave's. Unfortunately, none are in the Chippewa Valley.

Unfortunately pretty similar to other chain BBQ places.


It doesn't take a scientist to see why this place got V1's best of. The food is phenomenal and the service is excellent. The seats are a little hard though..but that wouldn't stop me from going there.


Great barbeque.. BUT surprisingly the BEST catfish and cornbread in town.
