With the smell of a wood burning oven mixed with award-winning barbecue sauce in the air, Tim Murphy sits down with Edina resident and entrepreneur Dave Anderson to talk about his newest creation: Jimmie’s Old Southern BBQ Smokehouse on 44th & France. Anderson became (literally) famous through his Famous Dave’s restaurants across the nation. Now he he’s gone back into his personal kitchen to create a whole new experience for BBQ lovers in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Jimmie’s Old Southern BBQ Smokehouse is a new twist to what Dave does best — create fall-off-the-bone meats with award winning sauces that are small batched. Everything is created fresh and on the spot at Old Southern, and you will discover that Dave has big plans for the restaurant named after his dad.
Today you will learn:
- What Dave regrets the most when it comes to his “Famous Dave’s” chain (he hates the word “chain,” btw)
- Why his son went to Edina High School every morning smelling like barbecue sauce
- What he’s looking for in young leaders
- How he’s reaching out to help the leaders of tomorrow
