  • Famous Dave's
    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 d?cor 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
    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 saut?ed 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.
