Let’s be real here – if you don’t like barbecue, you’re not an American. You can get back on the boat and hang out in France for the rest of your life. It’s the one type of food that the United States is famous for. As someone who has tried and failed miserably, I know that it takes a certain amount of skill do make exceptional barbecue.

There’s no establishment quite as good at it as Famous Dave’s. If you’ve eaten there before, you know what I’m talking about, and if you haven’t you are seriously missing out. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with anything on their menu, but I’m going to help you narrow it down to their top 10 items to try (in no particular order.)

  1. Southside Rib Tips
  2. Burnt Buttz
  3. The Big Slab
  4. Texas Beef Brisket
  5. The Man Handler
  6. Cajun Chicken
  7. Wisconsin Curd Burger - (My personal favorite)
  8. Sassy BBQ Salad
  9. Dave’s Award Winning Chili
  10. BBQ Nachos

I definitely recommend going before the end of the month if you want to try the Wisconsin Cheese Curd Burger. It's the burger of the month, which means that in just a few days it'll be off the menu for a number of months. It's seriously the best burger I've ever had, bar none.
