No one can say that Famous Dave didn’t work hard to build up Famous Dave’s! Before he ever opened his first restaurant back in 1994, Dave took to the roads and spent a few decades trying true Southern BBQ and fine tuning his own smoking technique and spices. When he was convinced that it was perfect he opened his restaurant! Appetizers range from spicy Cajun catfish strips to machos with house-smoked cheese, chili and your choice of pork or pulled chicken. For a main dish patrons can get a full slab of slow cooked (3+ hours!) spareribs prepared in Dave’s secret recipe or opt for something a little more familiar: one of Dave’s signature burgers served with a side and some spicy pickles! If you like BBQ, you’ll love Famous Dave’s.

Rock & Rita's, touted as "all fun" by Las Vegas Magazine, houses a bevy of cooks who sizzle up barbecue grub as bottle-twirling bartenders serve cool drinks amid psychedelic décor. The restaurant's philly cheesesteak "is a beauty," according to Las Vegas Magazine, sending taste buds into nostalgic revelry with a down-home blend of Cheez Whiz and paper-thin beef. Icy draft beers, well drinks, and 44-ounce fishbowl beverages fill the full bar, fashioned from a large prismatic bus, and bartenders toss bottles, juggle glasses, and balance barstools while pouring drinks and reciting the list of past mayoral candidates from memory. Rock & Rita's showcases karaoke on Thursdays and live-music entertainment on various nights throughout the week.
