Best Barbecue Restaurant Grosse Pointe MI - Famous Dave's - cater-bundle

Are you looking for an award-winning dining experience?d You'll find it here at Famous Dave's, the restaurant and catering company with more awards than any other. Our high reputation comes not only from our shockingly good ribs, pulled pork sandwiches, burgers and more, but also from our friendly service and warm atmosphere.

Here at Famous Dave's we smoke hundreds of slabs a day to keep up with the demand for Metro Detroit's best barbecue. In 2005, the Famous Dave's in Taylor made its debut followed by Famous Dave's in Novi. Collectively, the four restaurants have become known as Famous Dave's Detroit and have spent over a decade preparing Metro Detroit's best barbecue. Our pit masters arrive early every day to prepare our scratch-made sides and homemade desserts. Our smokers never sleep, and you can smell that real hickory wood smoked meat from blocks away.

The Barbecue Restaurant You Won't Want to Leave!

Given the widespread acclaim Famous Dave's has received and the staggering number of awards we've earned to date, you may be surprised to learn that we opened the doors on our first barbecue restaurant relatively recently, in 2003. Since then, we've flung doors wide on barbecue joint after barbecue joint in Michigan, Illinois and Ohio. We smoke hundreds of slabs a day at each eatery, and still can't seem to keep our customers satisfied. They just keep coming back for more ... again and again.

Partially that's due to our atmosphere, which is almost as much a part of our success as our amazing recipes. In addition to melting, perfectly crusted, slow-cooked and grilled creations, we also offer cozy atmospheres with family friendly accoutrements and amenities to please the older crowd as well. Whether you're coming for the environment or the food, you'll be delighted to sit and stay a while. Or all night, up to you! We offer:

  • Slow-cooked pork, chicken and beef
  • A rustic and authentic atmosphere with low lighting
  • Murals and artwork to for the aesthetes among us
  • Wooden walls and other touches, bringing you back to your roots while you dine
  • Homemade desserts and from-scratch sides
  • AND the world's best barbecue
