Big Eds vs Famous Daves vs Jacks

Seal | Feb 3, 2006 05:11 PM


In the battle of the local bbq, I have to go against the seeming favorite and cast my vote for Famous Daves. Although I love all you can eat as much as the next fat person, the taste, texture, and sauce are all superior at Daves.

Just to satisfy my curiousity, I took the family to Big Eds again last week. It was just as I remembered it - not bad, but not my favorite. In fact, I even prefer Jacks.

Another point for Jacks is their wings. Few local places make buffalo wings nearly as good. And, although they are not buffalo wings by any stretch of the imagination, the wings at Daves are bbq'd and very flavorful. In fact, the "hot" style bbq wings are quickly becoming one of my favorite finger foods.

So, there you have it. Please feel free to post and claim my taste buds are defective and I wouldn't know a good rib from Adam's :o)
