  • They have lunch specials!!! Best place to get away from the crowds at the mall..
  • Lunch specials are from 11-3pm daily! Try the pulled bbq chicken sandwich with mac & cheese for the side! Delicious...
  • Great food, the perfect escape from the crowds, and the best corn muffins I've ever had. Order the rib tips and drunken apples!
  • love the brisket here. and the corn muffins ain't bad
  • The mice running around really complete the whole "rustic cabin" vibe..
  • Great server tonight! I think his name was ross
  • Watch out for Punchy. He's hanging from the antlers. Waiting. Watching.
  • Loved the beef brisket sandwhich... Not to crazy for the man n cheese super spicy I couldnt eat it
  • Ask for Cliff. He's an excellent server.
  • Let's see if their service is better then bdubbs!
  • BBQ heaven.
  • In Texas we just call it beef brisket.
  • They have a small side door that you can do Togo orders.
  • Warning: burgers will be burnt on the outside unless you ask for them not to do so. Carbon is the style here.
  • Great sit down spot for lunch, and it's not as rowdy as the other restaurants on the third floor.
  • $4 beer and Apps for Happy Hour. Service is friendly and attentive.
  • Ribs were a little boney.
  • Highly dissapointed and extremely irritated at famous Dave's today (5/25/13), we got sat and watched 8 different wait persons walk passed us, 2 of which multiple times, with zero acknowledgement.
  • Tip your famous hosts n servers!! :)
  • Tip your to go and host staff if they're famous!
