Say it isn’t so! I was so disappointed to read that my favorite barbecue restaurant, Famous Dave’s, closed its doors after less than a year in the Power & Light District (1/14, Business). I had highly anticipated this restaurant’s downtown opening after a year of rumors that it was originally coming to City Center Square.
As a Northlander and Hospital Hill worker, I delighted in its location and relished no longer having to trek across the state line, all the way to The Legends, for tender, fall-off-the-bone ribs and catfish.
As challenging as the competition for Kansas City barbecue can be, Famous Dave’s gave the locals a run for their money in taste, variety and hospitality.
Greg Cutchall, please reconsider. If you’re looking for a new place for a Famous Dave’s, give us another chance. Or come north. We’d love to have you, and a redevelopment opportunity awaits you in the Antioch Shopping Center community.
