Famous Dave's BBQ Compliment - Finally A Rib Joint In Denver To My Liking!!!
DENVER, COLORADO -- Having grown up in Denver, Colorado I've never experienced any BBQ from Kansas City, Chicago, St. Louis or any Southern style pork ribs except once at a family reunion in Texas. The local places out here that I have tried really don't even "stack up" to what I can conjur up on my grill. The ribs are either tough and bland and in some cases BOILED before being put on the grill. Even being from here I think that is a no-no!
Anyway Famous Dave's does it right for me. We went there for a Memorial Day Dinner and the place was packed. We were seated right away and were enjoying our meals within twenty minutes tops. I got a half slab of the pork ribs and the smoke flavor and seasonings went all the way to the bone not to mention how tender the meat was. Ordinarily I try to stay away from pork. It can be a bit greasy if you are not careful but not in this case. The cole slaw was tasty and the fries that looked like thickly cut "Ruffles Potato Chips" were perfect. The waitress kept my glass of lemonade full and was very nice.
After enduring raw hot wings, knats in my Po' Boy Sandwich and so on from other places this was a much needed good dining experience. ***1/2
