First time I have ever been to a Famous Daves, met some folks up there. Wasn't bad actually, had the rib tips and brisket w/ Jalapeno corn mac 'n cheese, green beans, corn on the cob. . .wasn't the best Q I have ever had, but I would go back.

I can relate, Steve. We went to our favorite little supper club, and they had a birthday party going on for about 35 people. The grill was not equipped. After being seated and getting our drinks, and a trip to the salad bar, the waitress said there would be a wait to get our entrees. After an hour and a half sitting at the table, I told her to cancel our order, since it would be another 30 minutes before they even started our food. DH was not happy, but tough noogies.

We came home and DH had leftovers too.

sorry you got ripped off, steve. i can relate as well. we eat out a lot.

one thing i learned from experience as well as watching a lot of cooking and foodie shows is that if you're paying $20+ for appys, and $35+ for entrees that are tiny, it had better be damned near perfect. if not, you must complain. either to the host/hostess, or at the very least online as a review.

word of mouth is what those places live and die by.

Thanks, VB.
Whole lotta mashed potatoes and gravy going around this week. Yours looks delicioius. I know I make a lot more gravy dishes when the colder weather gets here. And your new camera sure came in quick!

Thank you, Dawg!
Do you mean the marrow? The stuff you can barely see on the bread underneath the parsley salad?
If you Google New York Times roasted marrow bones you'll see the recipe.

Thanks. After seeing msmofet's meals, I had to have something with mashed taters and gravy. And, I had the camera sent express.

I'm so sorry to hear you had a bad dinner. There are a couple of places in Seattle like that. They charge you big bucks and give you nibbles. I'm glad you had leftovers to eat, though.
