I first found Famous Dave's in the Twin Cities a few years ago. This one has the great BBQ, but lacks the ambience of the others. Rib Tips is my meal of chi=oice, which is a good value for the relatively low price. Sure, some of the pieces are cooked a little well-done, but that's the idea with BBQ - It's the sauce that makes the meal, and the selection of sauces on the table will meet most everyone's idea of BBQ. If you want the real FD experience, go to Minneapolis.
Pros: sauces, value, not crowded
Cons: no live music
