GRAND OPENING: Famous Dave’s Legendary BBQ Opens First Henderson Restaurant on March 28

Famous Dave’s Legendary BBQ
Opens First Location in Henderson at the
Galleria Mall Shopping Center

The Readers’ Choice for Best Barbecue is taking its savory selections to Henderson. Famous Dave’s Legendary BBQ opens at 651 Mall Ring Circle, just footsteps away from the Galleria Mall at Sunset on Monday, March 28. To signify the grand opening, Famous Dave’s will conduct a time-honored “passing of the embers” ceremony and a “rib” cutting at 10:00 a.m. that day.

The ember ceremony is part of Dave Anderson’s (the founder of Famous Dave’s) Native American heritage where “fire” was passed from tribe to tribe as a sign of prosperity and good luck. Embers straight from the smoker from the Famous Dave’s restaurant in Lawrence, KS – which was the most recently opened restaurant, prior to the Henderson location – will be placed inside the new BBQ smoker to ignite the first flame for the new restaurant.

“We are very excited about taking our famous barbecue beyond the neon lights of Las Vegas and into the neighborhoods of Henderson,” said Dave Dworak of Sonoran Barbeque LLC, the franchise holder of Famous Dave’s Las Vegas. “We already have so many guests who live in Henderson that dine with us, so we’re happy to bring one closer to home for them and for new guests to drop in and sample our legendary BBQ.” Famous Dave’s has won more than 500 national, regional and local restaurant awards for its mouth-watering BBQ.
