Few restaurants in history have achieved as much recognition in a few short years as Famous Dave's! Dave’s road to fame began with a strong hankerin’ for fine barbeque and a stronger desire to make the finest slow-smoked barbeque folks had ever tasted. He visited rib shacks, roadside joints, every hole-in-the-wall or fancy pants supper club he could, all in search of the most BBQ succulent meats, savory seasonings and lipsmackin’ sauces around. After 25 years of tastin’ and cookin’, Dave’s barbeque just plain knocked the socks off his family and friends. That’s when Dave decided he had to share. He wanted to give all the folks a chance to dig into the best barbeque ever. And in a place as down-home fun and frolicsome as the BBQ shacks and clubs he went a callin’ on all those years.
