YUM! Famous Dave's was one of the best choices we made for our wedding. We worked closely with Deb and she was a pleasure to work with! She was extremely responsive and gave us everything we wanted. She offered her suggestions and we gladly took them. The food was amazing and the staff was terrific - at an amazingly affordable price! Our guests (as well as my husband and I) are still raving about the food!

I can't say enough about Famous Dave's catering. Besides the delicious food--about which our guests were raving ALL night!--the catering staff went above and beyond for us. Deb, the catering manager, replied to all my emails and phone calls promptly and continually assured me that everything would be taken care of (and it was). She secured some nice glass dispensers for the sweet tea and lemonade we ordered, provided extra tables, arranged the team to set up Friday morning (a day in advance), and made sure we had everything we wanted. The staff was kind, efficient, and did an excellent job on the day of. It was by far one of the best aspects of our wedding day. Definitely a perfect score!

I cannot recommend Famous Dave's in Chicago enough! We of course did a backyard wedding and BBQ, so the menu was perfect for our event. The value for the money was exceptional. I ordered for about 15% less people (ordered for 110, 130 showed up) than ended up showing up and we had a LOT of food leftover, and it came out to about $15 a head when you inclded extra dishes, server price, gratuity, etc. We did the 3 meat sampler which had a huge variety of items per person, including their great cornbread, 3 meats and 2 sides. I also added fruit trays and salad to round out the menu. They provided 3 servers, 1 of which grilled on-site for the freshest hottest food possible. The other 2 helped setup, serve the food, and then clean up. They brought plates, napkins, cutlery, condiments and even wet naps! They also provided to-go containers for the leftovers which was a genius and very thoughtful touch. Lots of people were able to take a good amount of food home for later too, so we didn't have to worry about it :)

They showed up 3 hours early to scope out the terrain, make sure we had the perfect location to setup the grills and food, and then returned before the ceremony and worked around us so as to be prepared for the reception without interrupting the service in any way. Their organization was amazing, I was so impressed with how professional and well planned it was for a simple BBQ place. These folks know what they are doing!

Deb Tempel (the phone rep I worked with for several months to set it all up) was incredibly thoughtful and professional, and I had no doubts that they would make my wedding that much more successful and fun. She even followed up with me afterwards to make sure I was completely satisfied.

The food was a hit, and I didn't have a thing to worry about that day with catering. Grand Slam food, service and pricing!
