Famous Dave's of America operates and franchises more than 160 barbecue restaurants in about 35 states, primarily Minnesota, Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin. The eateries serve St. Louis-style ribs, Georgia chopped pork, and Texas brisket. Most restaurants resemble 1930s-era roadhouse shacks, although others follow the decor of a hunting lodge or a Chicago-style blues club featuring live music. The company also distributes barbecue sauce, seasonings, and prepared meats through grocery stores and other retail outlets. Famous Dave's owns more than 40 of its restaurants and franchises the rest.
