Famous Dave's Restaurant Review

: Try Dave's honey buttered cornbread, creamy coleslaw, homemade bread pudding, and those hot and fresh french fries cut into wedges with the skin left on; you’ll be hooked. Oh, we almost forgot to mention the main attraction, the barbecue: the St. Louis-style pork ribs are tender and smoky and can be ordered with sauce or “naked” since Dave's signature spice rub makes them a treat even when served plain. For those who like saucier ribs, every table has squeeze bottles filled with condiments both fiery and sweet.
