No. 3 rewrite

"Famous Dave's"
This is superb barbeque! The menu has a wide variety to choose from and all entrees are excellently prepared with just the right amount of sauce so not to be over powering. The "sweet and sassy" salmon is the best in town. It is grilled until it is fully cooked but not dry. It is succulent with the juices, spice, and sauce making your mouth water before each delicious bite. The pulled pork sandwich is very tasty, not the usual bland fare. You can add your choice of several different levels of spicy barbeque sauces that grace each table. Another excellent choice of entree is the tender spare ribs. All that needs to be said is, you eat too many because they are so good. And we can't forget the barbequed chicken that is very tasty and cooked to perfection. My favorite sides are the Wilbur beans with chunks of pork, and coleslaw with pineapple and a hint of horseradish. The green beans were cold and didn't have much favor. The mashed potatoes and potato salad are fairly good. The corn muffin, on every plate, is sweet and yummy. There isn't much on the menu for vegetarians so you will have to ask for special attention but the staff is excellent at helping in any way they can. The flavored lemonade is very refreshing but does not have free refills. Our waitress forgot to mention this when she suggested it and, at $3 a glass, it is not a good bargain at this moderately priced restaurant. Any dessert is okay, nothing to rave about but you probably won't have room for dessert any way. For a “Colorado Springs Casual dining atmosphere,” with fabulous barbeque, the place to be is “Famous Dave’s” off Academy on Highway 83 at 8330 Razorback.

I took my spouse and a guest from out of town to Famous Dave's about 1 month after they opened. I personally can describe the experience as 'inedible'. I ordered a combination plate with brisket and pork and both servings of meat were so salty that they were inedible (think country ham with BBQ sauce). Their manager graciuosly agreed to take my meal off of the bill and offered to get me something else, but that pretty well killed my appetite for the rest of the day (3 glasses of iced tea were not enough).

I sent an email to them via their national website and got a canned response back about sending the comment to their district manager.

I do not plan to return.
