Famous Dave's Bar-B-Que is Branson Landing's source for the area's tastiest meats!  As the name says, award-winning ribs are just the tip of the barbecue iceberg full of beef, pork, and chicken choices.  And speaking of those ribs, they're prepared St. Louis style - hand-rubbed with Dave's secret blend of special sauces and pit-smoked over a smoldering hickory fire. Then they're slathered with sauce over an open flame to seal in the famous flavor and give them a crispy caramelized coating.  Prefer your ribs without the sauce coating?  Just asked to have them served naked -- but fans of the tender, tasty treats highly recommend ordering them fully clothed in sauce!  Other delicious options for barbecue include Texas Beef Brisket, BBQ Chicken, and Southside Rib Tips.  There's also a nice selection of burgers, including the Ultimate Burger, and the Jacked -N- Stacked. You'll also find yummy items from their Citrus Grill, including Citrus Grilled Salmon and Citrus Grilled Shrimp, a creative variety of soups, salads, chicken wings, desserts, and more. For two or more people, try one of Dave's Famous Feasts.  And a real favorite of Famous Dave's loyal customers are those crispy, sweet, tangy, and tender Burnt Ends.  Regardless of what gets your taste buds tingling when it comes to barbecue, Famous Dave's has just what it takes to satisfy your hunger!

"We eat here everytime we come to Branson."

We have been to Dave's many times while visiting Branson. The food is very good and the view is awesome. The restaurant sits on the banks of Lake Taneycomo and we always either ask for a window seat or sit outside on the patio overlooking the lake. Highly reccommend.

"Not Good for the Money"

This did not appear to be good value for the price. Ribs and pulled pork were very fatty and not flavored very well, but I did enjoy the chicken. It was moist and with good flavor. Side Items of corn, beans and cornbread muffins were also good. But again I was very disappointed on the main items that should be their signature items. Servers were very pleasant and atmosphere was great.

This was my first time eating at famous daves. The food,servous,and kindness from workers was great exept for one thing slightly disapointed me. The devils spit doesnt deserve the name devil spit. It has a peppery taste and was very tasty but it just wasnt as hot as wat is sounded. Over all famous daves is a great bbq restraunt and i would reccomend it.

Famous Daves is by far Branson's Best BBQ .I have tried most everything on the menu and everything is great. I think the best is the Salads and ribs with devils spit sauce.The waiter and waitress are friendly. the stores clean and located on the landing so plenty of shopping for the miss.

Good ribs, not the best I've had but close to it. Worth a repeat trip. If it was anyplace except Branson Landing, it would be overpriced. It's a very popular place so plan on waiting to get a seat, we waited over 30 minutes. The staff was excellent, they took very good care of you.

"Don't believe some of the bad reveiws"

Before we went I read some bad reviews on the ribs and prices, but we walked in right at 11am, were seated and served promptly with a very affordable lunch special that was wonderful. (I like the Devil's spit bbq sauce)Only slight downfall is the parking on the landing. We had to walk for several blocks. However the food was worth it. We would eat there again and again.

"food had good taste"

The service was great,didn't have to wait to get a table. It was my birthday so my boyfriend took me to Famous Daves for dinner my choice I was really disappointed in the ribs the flavor was good but the quality of the meat was not very good, the side orders were good and the BBQ sauces was good the green beans I didn't much care for them. we might give them another chance to see if they get any better but my favorite place for good ribs is Shorty Smalls the meat falls off the bone there...

"Rib Tip Heaven"

Tender and delicious what else can I say! Perfection personified I could eat it every day! The rib tips were cooked to perfection. The green beans were absolutely scrumptious. The ribs were fabulous and the service was wonderful. The waiter was very attentive and accommodating. This Branson Famous Dave's takes the number one spot ahead of the two Illinois and the Iowa Famous Dave's we've visited, and thoroughly enjoyed dining in over the past few years. Bring your best appetite or someone to share the more than ample portions that your "Famous" Server brings to your table in record time. In the Famous Dave's traditional style there was an abundance of tasteful conversation pieces throughout the restaurant. We loved the food, the music and the atmosphere. This was a delectable and memorable dining experience. It's a sure thing.....We will return!! Al & Jackie Jones Holly Springs, MS
