Famous Dave's Restaurant Coming to Winnipeg

The closets Famous Dave's restaurant to Winnipeg is in Fargo. There are two places to get ribs in Fargo. One is Space Alien's and the other is Famous Dave's.

In short, people who love ribs are are looking for something a bit different than Tony Roma's or some of the other restaurants who serve ribs or riblets such as Applebee's are going to love Famous Dave's.

Tribal Councils Investment Group of Manitoba Ltd, an experienced restaurant operator with the Wok Box, is responsible for the restaurant coming and a number of locations will be opening. The first will be at Lagimodiere Boulevard in the Reenders Square shopping centre.

The list of restaurants from the U.S. that people want to see here just got a little shorter.

The indication is that Famous Dave's is moving to Reenders Drive but where? Could this be the end of Royal Fork which closed in Fargo in 2008 due to competition? We'll see.

I was unfamiliar with Famous Dave's before this story broke so I googled it and I have to say, I was pretty intrigued by the background of its founder, "Famous" Dave Anderson. He's a Choctaw-Ojibway man born in Chicago and grew up on a reserve in Wisconsin, and he ended up becoming a successful businessperson, head of the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs, Harvard grad and founded Rainforest Cafe followed by Famous Dave's. Quite the resumé!

If you have never eaten at Famous Dave's,you are missing something. The best restaurant (and affordable) food ever. Hopefully when it flies in Winnipeg, its reputation will follow.
