|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:
http://www.famousdaves.com/shop.cfm or you can find it
at Barnes & Noble or Amazon. All proceeds from cookbook
sales are donated to The LifeSkills Center for Leadership.
