Famous Dave’s dishes out a hearty menu of downhome barbecue drawing on founder Dave Anderson's 25 years of culinary exploration and experimentation. Diners can kick off the carnivorous carnival with buffalo-style shrimp ($9.99) sporting spicy cornmeal breading and tiny Bills jerseys. To sate hungrier stomachs, pit masters slow-smoke ribs over smoldering sweet hickory fires to create the Big Slab of 12 ribs ($22.99). After first passing through a sauce-slathered shrink ray, Dave’s BBQ Buddies ($9.99) offer bite-size versions of the restaurant’s most popular sandwiches, including Georgia pork, Texas brisket, pulled chicken, and hot link sausage. Afterwards, a lineup of sugary treats, such as Dave’s famous bread pudding smothered in pecan-praline sauce and vanilla-bean ice cream ($6.99), pleases even the sweetest of teeth. The laidback barbecue mecca also keeps eyes and ears entertained with its playful décor and blues- and klezmer-spiced soundtrack. Diehards can join Famous Dave's P.I.G. Club, designed to keep members current on the restaurant's happenings via email.

After soaking up garlic-and-herb seasoning overnight, the hunks of rotisserie chicken at Mr. Chick roast slowly on a spit to maximize their flavor. Once they develop a golden hue, rotisserie bites tumble into the eatery's plates, sandwiches, family deals, and trio of chicken-rice bowls. Baby back ribs, gyros, and vegetarian dishes, such as marinated eggplant and fried zucchini, round out the rest of the menu and receive the same care and schedule of spa treatments as the signature poultry. In addition to dine-in and takeout options, Mr. Chick caters corporate events and private functions with large helpings of its delectable fare.

At Cheers Bar & Grill, customers sizzle up everything from steaks to burgers and brats, served any way a guest orders. Though they keep pints flowing all day long, the bar transitions into a 21-and-older establishment once the grill shuts down for the night. After that, the remaining crowd bonds over drinks from the full bar. At 1 a.m., the kitchen shuts down for the night to prepare for another day.
