Famous Dave's - The Best BBQ Restaurant When You're Hungry!

BBQ Restaurant Near Avon Lake OH - Famous Dave's - dine-in

When Grandpa's grill is too far away and Grandma's good old-fashioned fixin's aren't in sight, it's time to find a solution. No, it's not to spend hundreds of dollars attending culinary school and learning to be a top grill master ... although if that's your thing, we totally applaud you. But we were going to suggest something a titch easier: Head on down to Famous Dave's BBQ restaurant in Cleveland, where the atmosphere is always cozy, the price is always right and you can get that cozy dining experience without flying Pops in or earning that diploma. Welcome to the family restaurant you'll want to call home forever. And guess what? We'll let you, because the more the merrier.

With hundreds of national awards already under its belt, Famous Dave's opened on November 1, 2004 in North Olmsted, OH. Barbeque aficionados and local families waited hours for a chance to pig out on the best darn BBQ ever! Famous Dave's has spent over a decade preparing Cleveland's best barbeque. Our pitmasters 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 BBQ Restaurant You Can Call Home

Okay, fine, so you can't actually set up a bed here, but at Famous Dave's, you can do pretty much everything else you can do at home. Kick back and enjoy a long conversation with friends, order round after round of your favorite brew (or Shirley Temples for the little ones), and get seconds. Or thirds. Or ...

Don't take our word for it, though. Since our first barbecue restaurant opened in 2003, we've opened a number of other BBQ joints around Michigan, Ohio and Illinois. Our family friendly atmosphere and delicious food (we're not too modest to say it) have earned us numerous awards. In fact, we are the most awarded barbecue restaurant in the country ... and the world.

Why Choose Famous Dave's for Your BBQ Restaurant Of Choice?

You mean besides the cozy & welcoming atmosphere? When you slide into one of our comfy booths, you'll get so much more than food. You'll get:

  • A rustic atmosphere, complete with bright d©cor, low lighting and fairy lights
  • Artwork to set the scene
  • Wooden walls and furniture
  • A roomy but familial layout reminiscent of family holiday dinners

Admit it, that sounds just like the BBQ restaurant you've been looking for. Next time you want to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, retirement, engagement party or even a down-home wedding, you can do it right here within our walls -- or call on us for our epic catering services. Either way, we're here to help you find delicious, satisfying food and a grand ol' time.


When You Just Don't Want to Have a Seat

Sure, sometimes you're looking for that family restaurant sit-down experience that strengthens bonds and allows everyone to catch up. Sometimes, though, you just want awesome barbecue and sides on the go, or at your own event. Well, good news: Famous Dave's has officially joined the food truck revolution. We now boast our own fire engine red truck that tools around Detroit, and expect that we will launch trucks in our sister cities soon. In the meantime, we're happy to stop by your corporate festivities, wedding reception or other big event. Because delicious food should be mobile, don't you think?
