Famous Dave’s BBQ to Open on March 10th
In case there was any question (I’m not sure there was), the new sign for Famous Dave’s BBQ on 47th btw. 6+7th confirms that this place is going to be a big box tourist magnet. They’re shooting for a March 10th opening, and I got a sneak peak at a menu. It’s surprisingly reasonable for a Times Square bbq joint, but still too expensive to be a proper Midtown Lunch. Sandwiches are $11, with a special $13 “Texas Manhandler” consisting of Texas beef brisket *and* hot link sausages, topped with hellfire pickles (sounds like my kind of sandwich!) The rib plates are $13 to $23, and combo plates are $17 to $22.
Maybe they’ll add some sort of under $10 lunch special that isn’t on the menu… if not, I probably won’t be checking this place out.
