Famous Dave's Operation Famous Salute a success

Famous Dave's Barbecue Restaurants across East Tennessee wrapped up another successful year of Operation Famous Salute over the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

Diners were invited to pen messages and words of encouragement to our nation's military service members on stationary provided by Famous Dave's.

This year, over 1,300 letters were collected from the five Middle Tennessee Famous Dave's locations, including Chattanooga, Knoxville and three stores in Nashville. Famous Dave's will pick up the postage costs of sending the letters, while also packaging with Famous Dave's barbecue sauces, giving our service members a little taste of home. Letters will be sent to active military still serving overseas, as well as those recovering in our military hospitals stateside as well.
