I just wanted a burger so I stopped to see if they had one. I got a simple bacon cheddar burger and it was just what I wanted. Good beef flavor, crispy bacon as requested. Will go back soon!

This was my favorite meal that I ate during our recent trip to Minnesota! Famous Dave's was awesome. I had the pulled pork sandwich with sides of cornbread and dirty rice. I ate everything on my plate, which is unusual for me. It was awesome!...More
