That’s why we’re asking for your help to bring home the title of Denver’s Best BBQ.

Well this year, we’re going to ask that you do the same, and we’ll make your vote equally rewarding if we take home the title!

It’s really easy, and actually kind of fun! Just click the link below and it will take you to the voting page for Famous Dave’s. Once you have cast your vote, have fun checking out all of the other categories and making your favorite places in Denver more Famous.


There’s a popular saying in the BBQ world… “low and slow”, but don’t let your hickory smolder too long, voting ends this Friday.

Thanks to all of our raving fans that have made us the most award-winningest BBQ joint!

Don’t miss out on the deal. Join our PIG Club. If Famous Dave’s repeats as Denver’s Best BBQ, keep your eyes open for a smokin’ offer delivered right to your inbox.

Free Food for Daves on Dave’s Day!

by admin ~ August 3rd, 2011

“Dave’s Day” at Famous Dave’s Bar-B-Que  is taking place on Sunday, August 14, 2011. You didn’t read that headline wrong: All BBQ lovin’ Daves, Davids and Davys can eat free at Colorado locations! *

Our restaurants observe some unusual behavior on this special day, such as babies named Dave showing up for free BBQ, guests who proclaim they are going to change their name to Dave, and multiple generations of ‘Daves’ using our celebration as a celebration for their families. This event gives us an opportunity to show our guests what we do best – being Famous!

This year marks the third time Famous Dave’s has held this crazy event in honor of the Founder, “Famous Dave” Anderson who built this restaurant on his passion for people and the best BBQ ever. Plus, David is the 6th most popular boy’s name in the U.S., which means many people are named Dave or have a relative or friend named Dave, and can participate. Shoot, you may already know a Dave who’s joined us for Dave’s Day before. Either way, every Dave will be glad you invited them.

Click here to invite a Dave to Dave’s Day on Facebook!

*On August 14, Famous Dave’s Bar-B-Que Restaurants are offering anyone showing a valid ID with the first name of Dave, David or Davy a free entrée (maximum value of $15) at all Colorado locations. Anyone showing a valid ID with the middle name of Dave, David or Davy (sorry, last names don’t count) can also join in and receive an entrée for half price (maximum value of $7.50).

For “famous” fans who aren’t named Dave, Famous Dave’s has some hog wild specials featured in their “Hog Days of Summer,” which begins the day after Dave’s Day on August 15 at participating locations.  Guests who purchase an entrée will be able to add $1 ribs and 50¢ wings to their order during the four week promotion — and nothing goes better with ribs and wings than specials on tap beer that are too good to advertise in most states.

Taste What Dave is Smokin’ on The Food Network

by admin ~ April 25th, 2011

We’re about to give “TV dinner” a whole new meaning!

By now the buzz is all over the internet. Famous Dave will vie for the title of Barbecue Master in a new four-episode food competition on Food Network called “Best in Smoke” beginning May 8. Watch Dave rub, smoke, grill, sauce and slice his way through the four episode competition, then taste for yourself at any Colorado Famous Dave’s location.

Check your local listings for show times. Then Check out a couple of our delicious new items. We’re talkin’ taste on a whole new level….

…And the taste is blackberry!
Who would have thought such and itty-bitty berry could cause such a huge flavor explosion in your mouth? Dave did! His new Blackberry BBQ Sauce is what’s known in showbiz as “a smash hit”.  Just wait ’til it hits your tongue!

New! Smokin’ Blackberry Lettuce Wraps
Build it the way you like it with fresh lettuce, our juicy Georgia chopped pork and julienne veggies. Then pour on the Blackberry BBQ sauce. Now that’s a combination you can really wrap your tastebuds around.

New! Smokin’ Blackberry Ribs
It’s Dave’s award-winning St. Louis-style ribs glazed with his new Blackberry BBQ Sauce. Served with a corn bread muffin, corn-on-the-cob, and two of your favorite sides.
New! Rib-n-Meat Combo
A 1/3 slab of St. Louis-style ribs glazed with our new Blackberry BBQ Sauce with your choice of: Texas beef brisket, Georgia chopped pork, barbeque or roasted chicken, rib tips, chicken tenders, hot link sausage, sweetwater catfish or wings.
Great Idea!
Our New Dr. Pepper Glaze on Brisket!
Just wait ’til you taste what Dave’s mouthwatering Dr. Pepper glaze does to our award-winning Texas beef brisket! Try it with the beef brisket platter or with one of our other delicious brisket items. Don’t just sit there with your mouth watering – go for it!
Want the perfect brew for your ‘Que?
Lettuce Wraps- Dave recommends the crisp wheat flavor of Samuel Adams Blackberry Witbier to balance the smoky flavor of our Georgia chopped pork and Blackberry BBQ Sauce. Now that’s really livin’ high on the hog.
Dr. Pepper Beef Brisket – Samuel Adams Boston Lager‘s malt flavors complement the sweet tang of our Dr. Pepper glaze, while the spicy tones that come from authentic noble hops help give Dave’s brisket rub that palate pleasin’ little kick.

Famous Dave’s BBQ in Stapleton is set to re-open just one day after a street sweeper plowed through the bar.

by admin ~ April 19th, 2011

Denver, CO. 4/19/11 — The Stapleton bbq joint has just announced that it will re-open for lunch today at 11am, only 33 hours after being plowed into by a street sweeper.
“It’s amazing that things have turned around this quickly”, said Mike Higgins, Area Director for Famous Dave’s Bar-B-Que. “Just yesterday I was standing in a pile of rubble, although optimistic, I thought it would be 2-3 days before we were able to get the doors open again”, continued Higgins.
“This is really a testament to our team, our partners and the City of Denver. Without them none of this would have been possible, it was a complete team effort and everyone dropped what they were doing to ensure that we could resume operations as soon as possible and limit the amount of time our 100+ employees were out of work”, Higgins concluded.
The street sweeper, estimated to be traveling at over 40mph when it struck the building, plowed through an exterior wall, destroyed the bar, and damaged another interior wall of the building. The building was inspected and deemed safe by the City of Denver. The bar has been sealed off and crews will continue to re-build it in the upcoming days/weeks. The kitchen and a majority of the dining room were unaffected by the accident and will re-open for food service today at 11am.
The driver of the street sweeper was taken from the scene in an ambulance, with non-life threatening injuries. It is still unclear as to how the driver ended up plowing into the building. There has been speculation that he may have fallen asleep or suffered a seizure before the accident.

For pictures of the accident please visit:
Photos of the restoration will be posted at the same link location shortly.
