Famous Dave’s BBQ

Famous Dave’s opens in Dubai 

A few years ago I was listening to the radio, I had tuned in half way through a show and picked up the tail end of an interview about Famous Dave’s coming the UAE.  Dave was obviously very famous in America for his smoked BBQ restaurants and I was desperate to pay the outlet a visit.  However, they were opening in Abu Dhabi and I rarely visit Abu Dhabi these days. I felt a pan of disappointment at this news.   We recently paid a visit up to Riverland at Dubai Parks and Resorts and I can’t tell you how happy I was to see Famous Dave’s had opened there! 

Everyone who works at Famous Dave’s is famous for something, our waiter enthusiastically told us that he was famous for playing Chess at an International level in his home country.  Before we had even ordered our food I knew we were on a winner.  The menu is extensive, but all BBQ based and all the beef is smoked, a special recipe from Dave.  We thought the best thing we could do was to order one of the famous feast sharing platters, that way we could try a bit of everything.  We ordered a famous feast to share for 2 -3 people.   Our feast arrived and contained beef back ribs, country roasted chicken and Texas beef brisket, creamy coleslaw, baked beans, famous fries and sweet corn and corn bread muffins. Amazing!! I can’t recommend Famous Dave’s enough and I hope and pray that they open an outlet in one of the main Malls in Dubai. Riverland in my opinion is not going to be a good location for any restaurants. 

A great time was had by all and the food was second to none.  We will be returning, but unless it rains in the next few weekends it won’t be until the winter months.  You can find more information about Famous Dave’s and their amazing menu on their website.

  1. Looks good! Riverland clearly has better restaurant choices compared to what is offered inside the amusement parks.

    1. there are some good restaurants, no idea how they will manage in the summer though!
