Famous Dave’s to open in Evergreen Pk.
Famous Dave’s of America Inc. will open a location Nov. 19 in Evergreen Park, 2855 W. 95th St.
It will be the chain’s first “BBQ Shack” in Illinois, a fast-casual restaurant prototype that is a scaled-down version of full-service Famous Dave’s locations, such as in Orland Park, and features fewer menu items compared with the company’s sit-down locations.
It will have seating for 102 customers and be the Minneapolis-based chain’s eighth Chicago-area restaurant.
The restaurant will be open 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. For information, call (708) 423-5546.
