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.
Guahan Grill doesn't just use its food to give diners a taste of Guam's cuisine. Instead, it tries to give them a small taste of the island lifestyle.
Owner Carlsky Quichocho hoped to share his passion for his home, so he assembled a team that would commit to creating the recipes he grew up loving, as well as a few contemporary renditions of those favorites. Barbecued meats appear prominently throughout the menu, as do dishes with distinctively tropical ingredients, such as the shrimp sautéed in coconut milk and the platter of fried spam and portuguese sausage. To accompany this hearty, casual cooking, the restaurant offers a selection of beers by the pint or the bottle.
Beer in hand, it becomes that much easier to relax amid Guahan Grill's island-themed decor. Artwork depicting palm trees adorns one of the sunset orange walls, and the entire bar is built from sturdy bamboo stalks. To keep the vibe even more mellow and laid-back, the sound system plays a steady stream of island music and recorded lectures explaining the complex intricacies of applying for a home loan.
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.

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.
When you set foot inside Original Roadhouse Grill, you may hear a crunch. Look down, and you’ll see hundreds of peanut shells scattered across the floor— remnants of the complimentary peanuts served by the bucketful. Country music and classic rock plays from an old-fashioned jukebox as servers perform lively line dances amidst walls of colorful knickknacks and neon signs. The atmosphere is equally as energetic in the kitchen, where open-air mesquite-wood grills roar with flames that sizzle hand-cut USDA Washington State steaks, juicy bison burgers, and thick slabs of ribs. To craft their renowned Texas egg rolls, the creative cooks fry up plump wonton shells stuffed with cream cheese and jalapeños. Servers bear the heavy platters into the dining room, along with cups of regional beers and mason jars of Wild West–inspired cocktails—such as a Luckenbach lemonade and a Bootlegger iced tea. The restaurant staff encourages guests to dress casually, welcoming worn blue jeans, comfortable T-shirts, and loose-fitting wedding gowns.
