HI guys! I recently was invited to a restaurant in Abu Dhabi that is known for its authentic American BBQ flavors - Famous Dave's - is a brand almost 25 years old and best known for the quality meet they serve in the perfect BBQ flavors
We went to their branch in Abu Dhabi mall and as soon as I stepped into the place I could smell BBQ and so strongly! The restaurant is super cute with ample amount of seating space in different areas (close to the windows, diner booths and regular tables). We were greeted by the staff and attended by the very kind Famous Wilma! Yes! Famous Wilma - Everyone in the restaurant is Famous and famous for a reason. So if you happen to go there, make sure you ask the staff why he/she is famous!
The Chef came to our table and explained to us the different options the menu has and recommended we get the below:
- Burnt Ends: These were tender pieces of Texas Beef Brisket caramelized with Sweet & Zesty® BBQ
- Dave's Sample Platter: As the name suggests, this massive platter was a mix of a lot of things they serve on the menu such as Smoked Salmon in a spread, Shrimps, Onion Rings, Potato Wedges, Fried Pickles, Chicken Tenders and Buffalo Wings. The Shrimps, wings and tenders were my absolute favorite!!!!!
For mains we got the All American BBQ Feast. FEAST in its true sense it was! Do not take this mad platter lightly because it is HUGE! This feast included
- Beef Back Ribs
- Beef Brisket
- 1/2 Chicken Grilled to perfection!
- Potato wedges
- Corn on the cob
- Corn Muffins - this is the first time I ever ate these and they were pretty interesting!
This feast was such a huge portion, it is easily shareable by a group of 4-6 hungry people! We were way too full after the starters and could barely finish the mains! Thats why No dessert :( LOL
Overall I would rate our experience really good at Famous Dave's. I personally do not eat beef but I took a friend of mine who does and did he love the burnt ends or what! That is an absolute must have dish he said! It was made to perfection!
Also, another cool thing at Famous Dave's is that they have 5 different types of BBQ sauces that are unique to their restaurant. The 5 flavors differ in terms of how sweet, sour or spicy they are. There is something for everyone here =]
A special mention to our server Wilma who was so so so nice and patient with all the questions and bullsh*t we put her through lol
Sharing what I wore that day for the lunch =]
