Famous Dave's has restuarants located in many cities and states and you can find the one closest to you at their website by entering a postal zip code. I took my French cousine there for a farewell luncheon and we enjoyed one of the most memorable meals of all her dozens of vacations. The decor doesn't merely teeter on the edge of being kitschy, it dives right into the deep end of the pool. You will find yourself immersed in an outdoorsman or sportsman's motif, surrounded with depictions and items from fishing and camping and hiking trips from the past. If you take a moment to study some of the stuff lining the walls, you will find some of it strangely moving and wishing you could buy a copy of this magazine cover or that poster print. The food is the best barbecue you will get from a chain restaurant. The prices are very reasonable for the quantity and quality received. Whether you have never eaten BBQ or whether you're from the South, you can't go wrong with their "All American BBQ Feast" for around 50USD. It feeds 5 - 6 people. We dined on the Feast for Two, which included beef brisket, half a chicken, an entire side of pork spare ribs, french fries, cole slaw, and baked beans. Every item was perfectly cooked and the entire platter made a lovely presenation, being brought out and placed before us on a sort of flat easel, like the work of art it was. When a Francaise says, "la presentation est magnifique!", you know you've done something right. The price was only in the 30USD range. A full range of beverages is available, including wine and beer. Most cleverly, they put ALL their sauces on the table, ranging from vinegar-based, to tomato-based, to pepper-based, to mustard-based, which covers several regions of the different styles of BBQ found in different regions of America. This way, the diner can sample 6 different regional kinds of BBQ at one meal, slathered over the meat selections that different diners prefer. The platters also come heaped with corn on the cob and corn bread, which are essential parts of the experience. Travelers who have never tried BBQ simply must visit Famous Dave's for an introduction.
