Famous Dave's Restaurant Review

: Order a plate of Dave's pork ribs and you're all set. They are tender and smoky and can be had with sauce or "naked," and 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. Groups of four should order the All-American Feast for a cornucopia of barbecue ribs, barbecue chicken, beef brisket, corn muffins, Wilbur beans and french fries. Served on a paper-lined garbage can lid, this dish shouts to the world that you're ready to hunker down. Don’t forget the homemade desserts: “Better Than Mom’s Pecan Pie” really is. Despite more than a dozen locations citywide, Famous Dave's Barbecue has lost none of its appeal for barbecue lovers.
