First of all, we are big Famous Dave fan's going all the way back to his beginnings near Hayward, WI. They were the best BBQ we ever had. Are they still? Not so much. Good, but not the best.

We sat outside, which was a mistake, because we waited a very long time to get waited on. Hubs even went inside to be sure we hadn't been forgotten. We were told that someone would be out shortly, but again we waited. We had finally decided we would leave in 5 minutes if our waiter didn't come, but one did. Luckily, it was a beautiful evening and the setting at the Collections had a kind of cool vibe.

This place sucks now that they're under new management. They manager is rude and so are some of the waiter's. My mom loves this place but after our last two experiences we definitely go back. Save yourself the time and money. Go somewhere else.

Our trip for lunch today was very good. We were greeted and seated immediately. The new manager came by and asked us how things were. He was very friendly and accommodating. The food came out in a reasonable amount of time, and it was fresh and tasty. My husband got the 4 bones sans sauce with beans and corn. All were good. I had the lunch stuffed baked potato, which was delicious, with plenty of BBQ pulled chicken and cheese and bacon. I chose the steamed broccoli as a side, and it was cooked perfectly - just the right texture between too firm and too mushy. The corn muffin was really good, one of the best I've ever had. We were pleasantly surprised after reading some pretty negative reviews, and I'm sure we will return. Keep up the good work, Dave's.

It is not the greatest BBQ but then this is California where "similarity" gets high marks. Everything is good except that the food is not spectacular it is ordinary BBQ. When you can say that you can duplicate it at home ... you are negating the reason to go out.

Hubby and I like to split an Ultimate Burger and we use our free coupon to share a bread pudding for under $15 total, so quite a bargain. Both dishes are delicious and we leave good and full. Great service too!
