Because you put the word “famous” in front of your name doesn’t necessarily make it true. But with regards to famous daves menu 2020 – it’s the facts. With 200 restaurants in the united states (1 in Winnipeg Canada) and 700 awards for barbeque; Dave Anderson knows his stuff. It’s stated that Dave is a “living and breathing barbeque encyclopaedia.”
You experienced me on the word “barbecue”. Say the word “barbeque” and I’m there. So, whenever we were staying in Alexandria, Virginia while visiting Washington DC so we drove beyond the restaurant one evening, I insisted over a detour.
Yes, it’s a chain but don’t allow that to discourage you from creating a try. The decor has that “chain” feeling nevertheless the ambience is warm and friendly and in my view, any barbeque joint that leaves a roll of paper towel on each table, wet wipes and a number of sauces (6 overall) to pick from, means awesome sauciness is soon to come.

Low and slow is the number one rule in terms of barbeque but things to order? Brisket? Pulled Pork? Ribs? A lot of choices and you need to have it all – am I right? Why limit you to ultimately just one sort of meat? If it’s on the menu I always go for the sampler and in the case of Famous Dave’s Barbecue the sampler is called the “All American BBQ Feast.”
Feast for Two – $39.99US – St. Louis-Style Spareribs, Country Roasted Chicken, Texas Beef Brisket or Georgia Chopped Pork, Creamy Coleslaw, Famous Fries, Wilbur Beans, Corn, Corn Bread Muffins all served family style on the garbage can lid.

Garbage Can Lid???? Yes, you read that correctly. The tale goes that Dave used to smoke his ribs in his garage and because he didn’t have sufficient platters to offer the crowds of friends and family, he would certainly present everything over a clean garbage can lid…and that tradition continues today.
Final Verdict of Famous Dave’s Barbecue. For starters, the portion size is massive. The menu states that it must feed 2-3 people, but honestly, I would believe that 3-4 people is actually a more accurate estimation. There is a lot food we had leftovers for lunch the very next day.
We’ve been disappointed before with “chain” barbeque restaurants, but honestly, we loved all of it. The brisket wasn’t fatty, the ribs were fall from the bone, and the chicken was nicely smoked and moist. The beans were exceptionally good and smoky with bits of burnt tips mixed in – YUM.
I would visit famous daves menu again and yes, I might order the sampler, but instead of beef brisket I’ll try the pulled pork, and I’ll be sure to wear stretchy pants! We went on a whim since we had not experienced many years. The cvlerv was quaint (?), type of out-doorsy decor.
The wait staff was friendly and fairly efficient – decent service. The restrooms were clean (as well as the scent just outside the restroom was really nice – unsure what it was). The food itself was okay. I actually have definitely had better BBQ. I didn’t care for their sauce. The standard of the meet (the two of us had the pork) was good, although quite a bit of my wife’s was burnt ends, which she did not like. I liked their cole slaw. Steamed broccoli was good. I have done not look after their beans (too acidic rather than an excellent flavor).
