    From the noise of the "El" train rumbling overhead to the Disneyish, chic-shack décor, there's a lot for barbecue snobs to get their panties up in a bunch about at Famous Dave's. Read more

    If you combine the BBQ with rib meat, mashed potatoes, beans, coleslaw and cornbread... well then you've just made yourself a hell of a casserole, my friend.

    Make a reservation! Packed fridays, saturdays, and Sunday brunch. Get your cocktails from Collin & make sure you try the Daves mac n cheese.

    The bands are the cornerstone for this location, a cheap night for 2 getting there before 7:30 on Fri/ Sat without cover charge. Order off the catering menu, much cheaper getting double winger.

    Gluten free? Get the ribs without the rub, and you can safely put most of the sauces on them.

    Check out their open blues jam on Sundays. The stage is only for the brave, but the shy and hungry can still enjoy wings and beer. - CBS Minnesota Read more

    Great music and the Sunday Brunch is incedible. The only downside on the brunch is you can only eat so much

    Check out the live blues jam every second and fourth Sunday, from 7p-10p. Moses Oakland and his band run a tight ship on the stage. No cover.

    Great early happy hour (4pm-7pm). $2.99 BBQ buddies and $2 tap beers make a meal. Good tap beer selection.

    Do not get the burnt ends rib sandwich, only fit for an Eskimo, cubed chunks of blubber on a bun. Should come with a side of nitroglycerin.

    Open seating at the bar. The on-tap selection is decent, but nothing too exotic.
