We source the thickest cuts of meat and trim them up, just like we do for competition.

Then, our Pitmasters hand-apply our fresh dry rubs before slow-smoking them in a live-wood smoker stoked with genuine hickory logs. To lock in that deep-down smokiness, each tender cut is finished on the grill, creating our famous char-grilled sweetness on the outside. Our tender, juicy ribs and chicken are amazing straight from the grill or topped with one of our award-winning sauces. It's the best darn BBQ you'll taste in SE Michigan!

The Best Never Rest
Barbeque's Living Legend

Famous Dave is the most awarded Pitmaster in history — a true originator blessed with a great sense of taste and a passion to create only the best of the best. Even among BBQ champions, Dave is recognized as the authority on the art of cooking with smoke and flame.

Dave's passion for ribs began as a young boy in Chicago. His father would bring home the best tasting ribs, slow-smoked by street vendors using 55-gallon drums. They were legendary ribs smoked just like the champion Pitmasters did way down in the Deep South. And thus, his story begins.

What Makes Great BBQ?
You hand rub each slab with spices, then slow smoke'm in a pit of smoldering hickory like the champion Pitmasters in the Deep South. These ribs are so good right out of the smoker—try 'em without the sauce—just order your bones naked! - Famous Dave

Return to Work celebration at Famous Dave's

Employee appreciation is easy when it comes in the form of a helping of delicious BBQ like this.There is no denying that the past year or so has been incredibly difficult for employees and businesses worldwide.

Why Team-Building is Important Now

Team building is critical for businesses at present. No matter what industry you work in, you are likely to have experienced many different disruptions due to the pandemic. For example, a lot of businesses have had to shut their doors because of social distancing restrictions. There are then the financial effects of COVID-19, as well as the different health and safety regulations that need to be adhered to. As a consequence, social anxiety is higher than ever before. Plus, a lot of workers feel distant because they have spent so much time at home. 

As a result, it is important to get that bond back so your team has the right morale and can work together effectively. After all, if your team cannot work effectively together, your company will struggle to reach the heights that you need to succeed during these difficult times. Plus, team-building activities also help employees feel appreciated and secure in their job, which is more important than ever before.
