Many restaurants may claim to do barbecue, but few can back up that statement. For the true BBQ lover, there’s La Crosse, WI’s Famous Dave’s, whose pitmasters are truly dedicated to the art and science of tantalizing your taste buds. Whether you’re looking for exceptional and unforgettable ribs, a mouth melting brisket or lighter fare like catfish, this place brings Memphis and Kansas City style barbecue to Wisconsin, emphasizing a keen attention to ingredients, craftsmanship and customer satisfaction.

What makes the food so good at Famous Dave’s? When it comes to ribs, it’s a combination of using exceptional quality meats, hand rubbing each one with a custom blend of spices, cooking them for hours over a live wood smoker, tossing them on the grill to caramelize and lock in the flavors, and drenching them in one of the restaurant’s many down-home sauces. Paired with one of this restaurant’s many country side-dishes, you’ve got yourself an absolutely unforgettable barbecue experience.

This commitment to crafting the most delicious food possible has not gone unnoticed; in fact, Dave Anderson, Famous Dave’s pitmaster, has won over 700 awards for his creations. It’s amazing to think that, right here in Wisconsin, you get not just truly authentic BBQ, but some of the best in the country.
