Excellent food is served promptly by friendly waitresses in a casual environment. We try to avoid "chains" while traveling, but we love Famous Dave's and no longer have one in our hometown.

Ribs were too spicy to eat. Staff was very helpful and didn't charge for the ribs. The menu should be a little more clear on how spicy some of the food is.
