FAMOUS DAVE"S REVISITED (AGAIN)
We really want to love 'Famous Dave's. (again). Our last visit to the new branch in Alameda had a few minor hiccups. Sheryl Baca, General Manager listened of our concerns and responded with a very nice apology and gift certificates for a return visit. This is a big score in the customer service department. With gift certificates in hand we returned to revisit Famous Dave's once again.
This visit the "Great White Hunter' tagged along for back up food critique. He is in training for the 2020 Olympics Cycling team so his appetite was ready. Our server and hostess were pleasant and professional. Ms. Goofy and I decided to try the burgers and our guest the ribs. We shared a very tasty appetizer of burnt ends. The burnt ends were smoky, decadent cubes of meat candy. It was served with onion rings, pickled onions and some very tasty house made pickles. Our meal was off to a good start.
One thing Famous Dave's does right is the food presentation. Each of our plates (trays) was arranged artistically to tantalize and tease our taste buds. The Great White Hunters ribs looked beautiful. He enjoyed them evident by the plate of cleaned rib bones. My burger was called the "Ultimate" that included brisket burger, pulled pork, jalapeno bacon and cheese. It looked like a beautiful hot mess at first. This combination worked and made for a finger licken good meal. Ms. Goofy enjoyed her burger.
Okay, We love Famous Dave's again. Famous Dave's made all the right moves on this visit. I am sure we will visit Famous Dave's in the future. That is all for now. This weekend we will be judging in Oakland California at the 'Art & Soul' festival. Stay tuned.
