I have been to one in Iowa and I would say Great sauce, decent sides and decent meat. I only had the ribs. I could do way better on my CG but it aint too bad. At least they do not boil or bake the ribs.
My nephew flew into San Diego yesterday we went to Rie Dio Gado brazilian restaurant.in downtown San Diego. (awesome as usual)....and he was telling me about the Famous Daves in Chandler AZ... he raved about it... said it was his favorite place to go for meat!!! The boy knows meat..... big boy..BIG boy!
Remember when Famous Dave was just starting out back in the mid-'90s.
Won People's Choice in Cleveland & Naperville, IL. back in 1996 or 1997 if
I remember correctly (among other awards, but that's where I 1st ate his
ribs). Changed when he started the restaraunts, but still has great rib tips - where I go for them.
Ok for a chain, but stay away from the pulled pork, feels prechewed.
Several sauces, so you will find a taste you like. Brunswick stew is more of a soup, but is very good. Be sure to get the bread pudding. It has a scoop of ice cream on top, and is drowned with a pecan pralene sauce. Go there if only for the bread pudding.
They just opened the first one out here. IT STINKS!!!!!! Smokey Bones also opened and was a little bit better. What do i know? I waited for a table 40-45 minutes @ each of them! For the average bbq novice its prob the best they have ever had
