Stopped by Famous Daves in Salinas and received the best customer service ever!!!! The owner made sure we were well taken care of he walked around the restaurant and made sure all his customers were happy and asked if they needed anything else. We stopped by with 11 people in our party the owner made sure we were seated promptly and comfortable. Thank you for the best service!!!!! And GOOD food!

The portions are large and they even offer mini sizes. Pretty great quality of food. Their Mac salad is on point! Love their fried chicken and the Lau Lau!! It's hard to find a decent Lau Lau and theirs is cooked perfectly. It's seasoned well and the pork is so tender.
