History

The official name for the chain is Famous Dave’s of America, Inc. Their first store was opened in Hayward, Wisconsin, in 1994, by a Native American, Dave Anderson, with a passion for making barbecue.

He named the first store Famous Dave’s of America. Dave Anderson, typically known as “Famous Dave”, was raised by barbecue loving parents. His father had the same passion for good barbecue. Famous Dave grew with newer locations, including the Memphis storefront BBQ smokehouses in the Appalachians.

He spent many cooking sessions perfecting his skills until he opened the first barbecue pub in Wisconsin. Over the years, the chain has grown throughout the Midwest through its company-owned operations and franchises.

They opened the second location in Minneapolis in 1995. They also opened the third store in Minneapolis in 1996.

Famous Dave’s Menu Prices

 

The company underwent a further expansion after going public in October 1996. The restaurant also implemented unique themes like the roadhouse, barbecue shack, a blues club, and hunting lodge. The brand even offers online services, gift sets, barbecue sauce, seasoning, marinade, t-shirts, hats, music, books and gift cards.

Despite their development, the company experienced extreme loss and its stock value significantly crashed. In 1997, the brand made some management changes. Dave Anderson was chairman of the establishment board; Douglas Lanham became the chief executive officer and Mark Payne became the president.

However, the company experienced many corporate layoffs due to unpredicted losses as time went by. In 2000, the chief executive officer and new president, Martin O’Dowd, focused on expanding and improving. One of his ideas involved expansion through franchising.

The establishment earned its first profit in 2000 since it went public in 1996. In addition, the brand exceeded expected revenue in the early period of 2001. By April 2001, the company opened 35 restaurants with ten franchises.

Today, there are more than 200 outlets in 33 states all across the United States, including, for example, Wyoming, Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Iowa, Illinois, Maryland, North Dakota, New York, New Jersey, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Virginia. The brand also has several locations in Canada and Puerto Rico.

Reviews

Famous Dave’s offers a wide range of delicious sides as well as barbecued meats. Meat items consist of pork ribs, chicken and beef brisket. In addition, there is an assortment of different flavours of barbecue sauce, such as Devil’s Spit sauces, Sweet & Zesty, Rich & Sassy and Buffalo.

The restaurant’s award-winning ribs come in two options: the St. Louis-styled spareribs or the baby back ribs.

The restaurant’s menu specials cost between $12 to $13. These classics include the Southside rib tips, the Texas beef brisket, the country roasted chicken, traditional or boneless wings, barbecue chicken, chicken tenders, the Sweetwater catfish, cedar plank salmon and the Georgia chopped pork.

They also have a comprehensive list of combos, ranging between $5 to $23, and a selection of brisket burgers ranging from $7 to $12. The store also provides family-style and lunch menu options, including the “family to go” and “feasts” menu options.

There are also appetizers, salads, soups, sandwiches and sides. Sandwiches range from $8 to $12; Appetizers cost $7; salads and soups cost between $3 and $11; the sides are priced roughly at $2 to $3.

The burnt ends, barbecue pulled pork, and barbecue chicken are fantastic options to try. The pork ribs and beef brisket are also favourites among customers. For large parties, we recommend the “feasts”. Favourite side items include the Wilbur beans, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, coleslaw, potato salad and cornbread.

The restaurant offers a great, comfortable, casual ambience for its guests to relax and enjoy delicious, authentic barbecue. The service is quick and excellent. Patrons will likely have a wait time on busy nights, but they accommodate patrons that come in groups.

The restaurant is hygienic as the facilities are kept exceptionally clean and in good condition. The food is excellent and tasty. The portions are large and tasty and full of delicious flavour. All said, this is a perfect spot for barbecue lovers and a wonderful experience for those who decide to try barbecue for the first time.
