Famous Dave's Adds a McTwist

Famous Dave's has appointed former McDonald's USA President Ed Rensi to be its CEO, dropping the "interim" tag. But we all know every CEO is really interim.
 
Ed is a really good restaurant guy and took the heat for a McDisaster with the McLean Deluxe, the low-fat burger that really had insufficient taste to be successful. But it WAS a good idea!
 
However, that conjures up some interesting possibilities — OK, speculation — on what's in store for Famous Dave's. Like:
  • Dave's Special Sauce?
  • McBBQ?
  • Two all-pork patties, etc.?
  • Egg McDave?
  • Pulled pork on a bagel for breakfast?
  • Dave Deluxe?
  • Arch McDave?
  • BBQ LT?
  • Filet O'Dave?
  • Brisket Biscuit?
  • Angry Birds instead of Monopoly?
I can hardly wait for the drive-thru!
