"People still eat there?" -- Yes they do! Please don't over expand and go belly up.

I can see why they are "attempting" to expand in Independence, MO....Sorry, but they cannot compete with real Kansas City BBQ

Yuck. Please stay out of Southern California. We have plenty of crappy chain restaraunts already. To dr4golf, you obviously have not had any good Texas BBQ. I've eaten at a couple mom and pop shops and Rudy's (5-10 stores) and they make Famous Dave's look like the McDonalds of BBQ.

I have two words for Famous Dave: Leeann Chin. I remember when they, too, went on an expansion binge into markets where they had no business being there. Luckily these CA restaurants are franchise deals so somebody else is taking most of the financial risk. I haven't been to FD for over 2 years, now. There are a few small shops in the Twin Cities that put them to shame (Big Daddy & Q-Fanatic!).
