Ok, so let’s get things straight, I hate, no, I abhor chain restaurants. Ask anyone and you’ll know I’ll fake sick just to not go to one. But, tonight I told my boyfriend we could go anywhere he wanted. And he wanted Famous Dave’s never being there. I wasn’t thrilled but I grinned and bared it thinking, “ok, I’ll order a burger. That should be okay.” And here we go, this is about to be a good review for the only chain restaurant I’ll ever write about. I might as well make this the first post because hopefully in a year’s time, no one will go back far enough to know what I’m about to say.
IT WAS GOOD.
Okay, I said it. I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed every bit of my meal.
We were told we were going to wait for 35 minutes. In my head I was thinking, “great. A wait for a place that is going to be so disappointing.” We we’re actually sat in ten so okay 👌🏽 no big deal.
We ordered a shrimp basket for the appetizer. It was pretty good. Not the best I’ve ever had but by far not the worst.
For dinner, we both got the two meat combo. I was so involved with mine when it came out, I can’t even recall what his was. I ordered the rib tips and traditional style wings in pineapple sauce.
First things first, way more rib meat than I would have gotten ordering a whole rack I feel. I’ll post my picture, there’s a ton of ribs hidden underneath the ribs you can see in it. Maybe more like a half but it was all meat. Not just a bone rib that has a bite of meat. And about 8 decent sized wings. All of it tastes awesome. I ate one wing, one rib, and two bites of each side (coleslaw, and mashed potatoes). I didn’t even get to touch my corn muffin. STUFFED. I’ll have leftovers for days lol. The coleslaw was great and I liked the mash with real pieces of red potato skins. I don’t think they were boxed.
There was obviously no room for dessert.
So there you have it, I enjoyed a chain and I won’t be obliged to go back and get the same exact thing.
And you will never hear me say a good thing about a major chain restaurant ever again.
