    check out west st paul location

    I had lunch at the WSP store on Monday. Place was packed at 12:30. Had to circle the lot for parking. Was lucky to get a table. Decor is similar to other Famous Dave's, but this place has some unique characteristics. You can see the impact Dave is having on simplifying the decor. This place is great.
    Sorry to hear about the Madison location. I have visited several Daves Stillwater,St. Paul, Calhoun Blues & Apple Valley. I like all the locations.
    It looks to me like Dave's is going through some learning on best locations and restraunt design. I love this company but I am concerned that for all this expensive management talent they seem to be having some trouble developing the correct model.
    The new Minnetonka Dave's has full waiter service. All the other Dave's has self-order and waiter delivery.
    Each restraunt has strong gross margins and a quick payback on start up costs. The concept is a very strong one. As long as management has the experience to pick good locations I am positive this will be a good investment. Madison is the first location that does not sound to good. We have to wait for the summer to be sure.
