Best Family Restaurant Sterling Heights 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.

Famous Dave's Detroit started with a passion for excellence and a deep love of barbecue. Elliott Baum, owner of Blue Ribbon Restaurants, a franchisee of Famous Dave's, had a vision to bring the best BBQ in the nation to Metro Detroit. With hundreds of national awards already under its belt, Famous Dave's opened on April 28, 2003 in Westland, MI. Barbecue aficionados and local families waited hours for a chance to pig out on the best darn BBQ ever! Seven months later, the Famous Dave's in Roseville opened its doors.

The Family Restaurant You Will Not Want to Leave!

Best Family Restaurant Sterling Heights MI - Famous Dave's - butcket

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:

  • Microbrews, American beers, wine and cocktails
  • Reservations and walk-in service
  • Catering to a huge array of events, from weddings to office parties to fundraisers
  • Tons of locations for easy dining
  • Bar open for 1 hour after the kitchen closes
  • AND the world's best barbecue
