RE: Famous Daves
A friend of mine had a heart attack yesterday and had to have immediate open heart surgery. He had a triple by pass plus three blood transfusions. My daughter who is a family nurse practicitioner and also knows my friend. She came by to visit while he was in surgery to consult and console my friends wife and brothers. After that I volunteered to take my wife to lunch. Famous Daves was only a couple of blocks away.
I know BBQ pretty good and I would be deceiving you if I posted the best BBQ ever. It was not but it was more than decent. Their sauce is very good with a bit of peppery aftertaste. I got the rib tips and daughter got the pulled pork. Their ice tea was very good and cole slaw was chopped and tasty. Fries were very good. Lunch was $20 plus tip.
Knoxville has not great BBQ places. Calhouns is sailing on yesterdays wind and Buddy's ain't good any more. Famous Daves is filling a void and by the crowd that was there at lunch, they are having some success.
