I typically don't have much reason to go to North Olmsted, but Saturday I was going to a poker tournament in that neck of the woods. I figured I'd try out Famous Dave's since I was going to be in the area.
I had heard good things from those who lived in the area. I pulled into the parking lot at 5:30 and it was absolutely packed. When I walked in, I bypassed the waiting crowd (yes, waiting at 5:30) and went straight to the bar.
The menu is pretty extensive with seemingly something for everyone. I decided to go with the chopped pork with fries, cole slaw, and corn bread. The chopped pork reminded me of one I had at Huli Sue's on the Big Island. I liked it. I also thought the sides were very good. I like Rotuno's meat better, but the sides at Famous Dave's are superior.
I normally am not a big corn bread fan, but this stuff was very moist. I loved it. While it probably isn't what you would consider traditional, Famous Dave's makes it in muffin form. Very good.
Expect a wait. This is a restaurant was surprisingly large, yet had a waiting list at 5:30 in the afternoon. Food is very good and the prices are, too. If there's a recession going on you wouldn't know it by walking in here.
