    Famous Dave's, swan song...

    Maybe its the locations here in the midwest. It seems to me that Buffalo Wild Wings is alway packed. Dave's, not really.

    I can't argue about the food. I've been to Buffalo Wild Wings a couple of times. Mostly for beer and to watch sports. Its the sports and the atmosphere that attracts people to Buffalo Wild Wings.

    I don't have anything againt Daves. It just seems to be an after thought.

    • The run down, empty restaurant you're referring to is likely one of the franchisees with terrible SSS. DAVE reported SSS of 3.3% in the 4Q which is a great trend if it continues. BWW isnt very comparable to DAVE as it is mainly a sports bar vs. a restaurant. Family's in the suburbs go to DAVE, college kids and guys go to BWW. Yes the latter is more profitable with the liqour sales but DAVE is doing fine. Business model intact. They found a niche and nothing has yet to infringe on it. THey just need to keep their costs down.
