I am a frequent customer of Famous Dave's Restaurant in Richmond, Virginia. I used to say that my favorite dish at Famous Dave's was the ribs. But after many trips to Famous Dave's I now include the entire menu as my favorites. He has a chicken and wild rice soup that is absolutely wonderful If you haven't tried Famous Dave's then I suggest you do. If there is no Famous Dave's close to you, try his cookbook: or you can find it at Barnes & Noble or Amazon. All proceeds from cookbook sales are donated to The LifeSkills Center for Leadership.
