Famous Dave’s is testing Beyond Meat products at 13 out of over 130 locations across the U.S. in an effort to continue offering high-quality protein items to their guests and fans.

After solidifying a partnership with Beyond Meat earlier this year, Famous Dave’s has become the first major BBQ restaurant chain to test meatless options. These plant-based protein options will include: 

  • BBQ Street Tacos featuring BBQ seasoned Beyond Meat stuffed into three warm corn tortillas, topped with lettuce, tomatoes, red onions and Fritos
  • Fritos BBQ Nachos featuring Fritos Corn Chips, topped with seasoned Beyond Meat, BBQ beans, crisp lettuce, chopped tomatoes, red onions, jalapeños and finished off with Famous Dave’s Famous Texas Pit
  • BBQ Bowl featuring BBQ seasoned Beyond Meat loaded with crisp lettuce, cilantro lime rice, hearty chili beans, roasted sweet corn, jalapeños, chopped tomatoes and red onions
  • Tropical Burger featuring a Beyond Burger stacked with sweet grilled pineapple and topped with Famous Dave’s Famous Texas Pit sauce and Signature Spicy Hell-Fire Pickles

The menu additions are a natural progression for Famous Dave’s as the brand continues to serve up its traditional award-winning proteins, all of which are smoked in-house every day over hickory wood.

“We have always been proud to provide our customers a variety of quality menu options and look forward to what these new additions bring to the table,” says Jeffery Crivello, CEO of Famous Dave’s. “We’re committed to offering our guests the power of choice when it comes to plant-based protein items, which is why we have carefully crafted these four delicious options that are sure to please our beloved customers and encourage new guests to join us at our locations.”
