Famous Dave's has announced plans to open 4 new BBQ restaurants in the United Arab Emirates, which is the first expansion of the brand outside of North America.

Famous Dave's has 180 restaurants, including 44 company-owned restaurants and 136 franchise-operated restaurants in 34 U.S. states, one Canadian province and Puerto Rico.
