Famous Dave’s Menu & Prices

Famous Dave’s, or otherwise known as Famous Dave’s of America, refers to a chain of barbecue restaurants with locations primarily in Midwestern United States. The restaurant serves pork ribs, chicken, beef brisket, and various flavors of barbecue sauce.

Dave Anderson, an Ojibwe-Chotaw who served as the head of the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs from 2004 to 2005, started the first Famous Dave’s restaurant nearby Hayward, Wisconsin in 1994.

This restaurant chain grew massively throughout the United States and Puerto Rico in 2014, though all of the Famous Dave’s stores in Puerto Rico locations closed after Hurricane Maria.

Today, Famous Dave’s has around 180 locations in 33 U.S. states with four international locations – in Winnipeg, Canada; Abu Dhabi; Al Ain; and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

Its menu includes the Dave’s Sampler Platter, Georgia Chopped Pork, Two-Meat BBQ Combo, Hot Link Sausage, True-Bleu Cheeseburger, and so much more. Let us take a look at the Famous Dave’s menu.

History & Interesting Facts

  • The goal of Famous Dave’s founder, or also known as “Famous Dave,” Dave Anderson is to create the best BBQ America ever tasted. A Native American kid said to be at the bottom half of his high school class, he did not have a lot of opportunities, but he had dreams and perseverance. BBQ was a passion he learned from his dad, a Southerner working in the construction. They always knew where they could find the best ribs, that is, the street-corner vendors with their 55 gallon smokers, cooking it up in the tradition of the deep South. After years of learning what he could about BBQ, he launched his first Famous Dave’s in Hayward, WI in 1994, and quickly gained popularity.
  • This has become a 50-year obsession with one purpose. That is, to delight guests with the most enjoyable and authentic BBQ experience possible.
  • Also known as the restaurant’s champion Pitmaster, Dave Anderson has won several BBQ awards in the country. He is also referred to as a “BBQ encyclopedia,” since he is a man who has spent his life in pursuit of BBQ perfection. He has read nearly every book written about BBQ and honed his craft on every pit, grill, and smoker imaginable. He is also well-traveled, never stopping to learn about BBQ in the places he visits.
  • Famous Dave’s passion for authentic BBQ is the foundation of everything they do. They source the highest-quality meats and trim them up well. Their Pitmasters get their hickory logs smoldering around 4 a.m., then hand-rub with fresh spices, and slow-cook them to perfection.
  • Famous Dave’s and Dave Anderson are award-winning. He has earned over 700 awards since becoming an authority in the world of BBQs. No wonder Famous Dave’s is known as “America’s Best BBQ.”
