Famous Dave's Thu, 09/20/07 12:52 PM (permalink)
Hey All

Here at work we get lunch sometimes at Famous Dave's, usually the bbg or brisket sandwich. But today i had the Dave's Favorite burger, 1/2 lb, bacon, jack cheese and bbq sauce, i added let/tomato.Must say it was one of the best burgers i have ever had, great char-broiled taste, juicey and the bacon and jack cheese all made for a stuffed lunch.

As of today FD'S Has always been good,not the best ribs around but they nailed this burger!!

Jim

    I really enjoy their pulled pork sandwich with a side of potato salad. I love the hot pickle slices they give you too. Everytime that we go, I get the pulled pork and my husband gets the burger that you mentioned. We have never been disappointed.

      For the rest of us out there, maybe a little insight as to exactly where Famous Daves' is located.

      Thanks

        Famous Dave started in Minnesota...he is a native American. They have locations in every state except, OR, ID, WY, NM, LA, MS, AL, VT, and ME. I keep trying the ribs in hope that this is the time I will like them...hasn't happened yet. Over 20 bucks for a full slab dinner with baby backs and they are sub-par. The burger is huge...but we have better "bar burgers" all over town here in Madison. We need a Texas brisket place here as well.

          Thanks, rideandslide, for the tip on the burger "find" at Famous Dave's. They just opened up here in Ft Myers recently. I had tried their que sampler and thought the overall quality was so-so. However, it's always good to know where to find an above average burger.

            I find Famous Daves average at best...we have Speed Queen here in Milwaukee, and THAT is good BBQ.

              I've tried Famous Dave's in Chattanooga four or five times and haven't had a good meal there yet. Thanks for the tip on the burger. Maybe I should give that a shot.

                I occasionally go there with co-workers, wouldn't pick it on my own. One of the problems is they use Hormel pork. I can always taste the salty off taste of that doctored pork.

                  Pancho - Have you tried the brisket at the Eldorado Grill? This is Tex Tubb's place, so the brisket should be doggone good.

                  They have Texas smoked brisket on the menu for $14.99. I talked to a bartender last time I was there and he said they have a real pit and the chef was really into barbecue.

                          No, I haven't but I will! I love that place. He also opened another "Taco Palace" over on University where Fire Fly used to be. Thanks, Jim!

                            My experience at Famous Dave's in Tallahassee have been the same. It's an occasional lunch stop with the bunch from work; some just love it so it's in the rotation. Last time there someone had their hot burger - jalapeno bacon, jalapeno cheese, jalapeno slices, and hot sauce; they loved it. Maybe I'll try Ride'n Slide's Dave's Favorite the next time out.
