Famous Dave's Restaurant Review

: That the barbecue is good at this legend is a given. Let's focus on the fries: Hot, fresh, and cut into perfect-sized wedges with the skin left on, Dave's french fries are greasy enough to feel like a guilty pleasure without sacrificing crispness. If you're with a bunch of friends, 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. With more than a dozen locations citywide, the chain's ubiquity may seem to spoil Dave's homey feel, but once you have a rack of ribs in front of you, it's unlikely you'll lift your eyes from your plate to notice.
