Famous Dave's Reports First Quarter Earnings of $0.14 per share, Including $0.01
Non-Cash Charge

MINNEAPOLIS, Apr 27, 2011 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) -- Famous Dave's of America,
Inc. (DAVE) today announced revenue and net income of $37.1 million and $1.2
million, respectively, or $0.14 per diluted share, for the first quarter ended
April 3, 2011. This compares to revenue and net income of $32.6 million and $2.7
million, respectively, or $0.30 per diluted share, for the comparable period in
2010. First quarter 2011 results include a non-cash impairment charge of
approximately $148,000 or $0.01 per diluted share, primarily related to
non-recoverable assets for a company-owned restaurant that will be relocated
within its existing market in early 2013. Fiscal 2010's first quarter included a
$0.15 gain from the acquisition of seven New York and New Jersey franchise
restaurants in March 2010.

Same store sales for company-owned restaurants open for 24 months or more
increased 3.0 percent during the quarter and included a weighted average price
increase of approximately 2.0 percent. Additionally, the year over year shift of
the Easter holiday from the first quarter of 2010 to the second quarter of 2011
had a favorable impact of approximately 70 basis points on the quarter.

"While we are encouraged by our first quarter comparable sales and revenue
performance, we recognize that we have more work to do to improve our results,"
said Christopher O'Donnell, President and CEO of Famous Dave's of America. "We
continue to focus diligently on growing sales and controlling costs in this
unpredictable environment in order to continue to deliver better results for our
shareholders."

Franchise royalty revenue for the first quarter of 2011 totaled $4.0 million,
essentially flat to the comparable period in 2010. The results year over year
reflect a net increase of seven franchise-operated restaurants, offset by the
loss of two months of franchise royalties for the seven New York and New Jersey
restaurants and a 0.1% decline in franchise comparable sales.

Stock-based and Board of Directors Cash Compensation and Common Share Repurchase

Earnings results for the first quarter of 2011 included approximately $422,000 or
$0.03 per diluted share, in compensation expense related to the company's
stock-based incentive programs and board of directors' cash compensation, as
compared to approximately $355,000 or $0.03 per diluted share, for the prior year
comparable period. The year over year increase is primarily due to a higher stock
price.

The company repurchased approximately 246,000 shares of common stock during the
first quarter at an average price of $10.28 per share, excluding commissions, for
a total of approximately $2.5 million. The company has repurchased approximately
420,000 shares under its current 1.0 million share authorization at an average
price of $10.30 per share, excluding commissions, for a total of approximately
$4.3 million.

Marketing and Development

Development and marketing highlights during the quarter included a successful
"limited time offer" of "Citrus Grill" entrees featuring six items, paired with a
side of broccoli and grilled pineapple steaks at less than 600 calories each.

The current limited time offering, "Best in Smoke," is inspired by our founder,
Dave Anderson's upcoming television appearance on the ultimate BBQ showdown,
"Best in Smoke", on Food Network(R), and features two new recipes, "Smokin'
Blackberry Lettuce Wraps" and "Smokin' Blackberry Ribs." The multi-episode,
single elimination competition begins May 8, 2011 at 10 p.m. Eastern and Pacific
Time. We are also offering our brisket with a Dr. Pepper glaze and a beer pairing
with Sam Adams Blackberry Witbier.

Famous Dave's opened three new franchise-operated restaurants during the first
quarter, in Lawrence, KS, Reno, NV and Henderson, NV. Three franchise-operated
locations closed during the quarter in Omaha, NE, Pensacola, FL, and Kansas City,
KS. Famous Dave's ended the quarter with 182 restaurants, including 52
company-owned restaurants and 130 franchise-operated restaurants, located in 37
states.

Outlook

The company reiterates its guidance on restaurant development, as issued in its
fourth quarter earnings release, and anticipates opening approximately 12 new
restaurants in fiscal 2011, including one company-owned restaurant.

Conference Call

The company will host a conference call tomorrow, April 28, 2011, at 10:00 a.m.
Central Time to discuss its first quarter financial results. There will be a live
webcast of the discussion through the Investor Relations section of Famous Dave's
web site at http://www.famousdaves.com.
