Famous Dave's BBQ for Family Dinner

We have almost always enjoyed our visits to Famous Dave's BBQ in Vista, CA. Tonight was no exception.

My brother-in-law Eric is in town and staying with us for a few days. After a day working in the yard we were treated to dinner out with mom and dad. We had all been to Dave's before, but it was Eric's first time. So we decided to go for it!

We had the...

A full slab of St. Louis-Style Spareribs, a whole Country-Roasted Chicken, 1/2 lb. of either Texas Beef Brisket or Georgia Chopped Pork, Creamy Coleslaw, Famous Fries, Wilbur Beans, six pieces of Fresh Sweet Corn (farm fresh when available) and four Corn Bread Muffins. Served family-style for 4-6 people.

Wow. That is a lot of food!

Mom had her usual pulled pork plate (we did the brisket on the trashcan lid, oh ya, it is served on a trashcan lid!) - so that left four of us to work on a meal that can feed six or more. We did OK, but we still left with three takeout boxes!

You have to give it to Dave's, they have a wide selection to pick from, and it is consistantly good. We never hesitate to go there because of worries about the food.

If you haven't been to a Famous Dave's BBQ, I recommend you get to one and see what you have been missing!

I've been bad...

I have been a very bad blogger (on more blogs that just this one I am sorry to say).

Not that I haven't thought about it. I continue to love going to BBQ joints, eating BBQ and taking photos and mental notes about the food and atmosphere with full plans to go home and make a review post. But... it just hasn't been happening. Well, the last step hasn't been happening.

So I thought it was high time I dug up all those photos and did what I should have done some time ago - get those reviews posted. Many of these barbeque restaurants I have been back to one or more times. Which is actually good!

One, it means it was good enough to go back, and two, it means I have more than just one trip to base my thought and feelings on.

 I am, however, having trouble locating all of my photos. Bummer. that a good thing since I will just have to "force" myself to go back and eat more que...

Question of the day. With sauce, or without??
