                 FAMOUS DAVE'S OF AMERICA, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

              NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
                                  JUNE 28, 1998
                                   (UNAUDITED)

(1)   GENERAL

    The business of Famous Dave's of America, Inc. and subsidiaries (the
"Company") is to develop and operate American roadhouse-style barbeque
restaurants under the name "Famous Dave's." As of June 28, 1998, the Company
operated nineteen restaurants and had four additional units in development. As
of June 29, 1997, the Company operated five restaurants.

(2)   BASIS OF FINANCIAL STATEMENT PRESENTATION

      The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements have been
prepared by the Company pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities
and Exchange Commission. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally
included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted
accounting principles have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and
regulations. Although management believes that the disclosures are adequate to
make the information presented not misleading, it is suggested that these
interim condensed financial statements be read in conjunction with the Company's
most recent audited financial statements and notes thereto included in the
Company's Annual Report on Form 10-KSB for the fiscal year ended December 28,
1997. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (which include only normal
recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation of the financial
position, results of operations and cash flows for the interim periods presented
have been made. Operating results for the thirteen and twenty-six week periods
ended June 28, 1998 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be
expected for the fiscal year ending January 3, 1999.

      Certain amounts in the fiscal 1997 financial statements have been
reclassified to conform to the fiscal 1998 presentation with no impact on
previously reported net loss or shareholders' equity.

(3)   INITIAL PUBLIC STOCK OFFERING/EXERCISE OF CLASS A WARRANTS

      During October and November 1996, the Company sold, in an initial public
offering, 2,645,000 units consisting of one share of common stock and one
Redeemable Class A Warrant for $6.50 per unit. Net proceeds to the Company 
totaled approximately $15.2 million. Each Redeemable Class A Warrant entitled 
the holder to purchase one share of common stock for $8.50 per share.

       In June 1997, the Company called for the redemption of its Class A
Warrants, giving warrant holders 30 days notice to exercise their warrants prior
to redemption by the Company. During July 1997, the warrant call was completed
with 2,637,000 of the outstanding 2,645,000 warrants being exercised. Net
proceeds to the Company from such exercises totaled approximately $22.3 million.

(4)   INCOME (LOSS) PER COMMON SHARE

     Basic earnings per share (EPS) is computed by dividing net loss by the
weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the quarter. Diluted
EPS is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average common shares
outstanding and dilutive common equivalent shares assumed to be outstanding
during each period. Dilutive common equivalent shares have not been included in
the computation of diluted EPS because their inclusion would be antidilutive.
Antidilutive common equivalent shares issuable based on future exercise of stock
options or warrants could potentially dilute basic EPS in subsequent years.

                 FAMOUS DAVE'S OF AMERICA, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
        NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (CONTINUED)
                                  JUNE 28, 1998
                                   (UNAUDITED)


(5)   PRE-OPENING COSTS

      In 1998, the Accounting Standards Executive Committee of the American
Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) issued Statement of Position
98-5 ("SOP 98-5") entitled "Reporting on the Costs of Start-Up Activities." This
accounting standard requires entities to expense as incurred all start-up and
pre-opening costs that are not otherwise capitalizable as long-lived assets.
This new accounting standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after
December 15, 1998 with early adoption encouraged. The Company elected to adopt
SOP 98-5 in fiscal 1998. The cumulative effect of this change in accounting
principle was $120,000 and was reflected in the quarter ended March 29, 1998.
Prior to the adoption of SOP 98-5, the Company deferred pre-opening costs until
the month the related unit opened and in certain cases prior to March 31, 1997
deferred such costs over no longer than a 12-month period.

(6)   SEVERANCE AND RESTRUCTURING

      In March 1998, the Company recorded a provision totaling $1,146,000 for
severance and restructuring. This amount includes severance costs, real estate
costs and a provision for write-off of a discontinued point-of-sale system.

(7)   PROVISION FOR LOSS ON RESTAURANTS TO BE DISPOSED OF

      In March 1998, the Company implemented a plan to close two restaurants. As
part of this plan, the Company has recorded a provision of $1,589,000 to reduce
the carrying value of the assets related to these restaurants to their estimated
net realizable value.

(7)   RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

      S&D LAND HOLDINGS, INC. - The Company leases the real estate for four of
its current or proposed units from S&D Land Holdings, Inc., a company wholly
owned by the Company's founding Shareholder.


(8)   INCOME TAXES

      The Company was an S Corporation through March 3, 1996. Accordingly, 
losses incurred through March 3, 1996 have been recognized by the Company's
founding shareholder. From March 4, 1996 though December 28, 1997, the Company
generated a net operating loss of approximately $4,907,000 which, if not used,
will expire in 2012.  During the twenty-six weeks ended June 28, 1998,
an additional net operating loss of approximately $4,690,000 was generated
which, if not used, will expire in 2013. Future changes in the ownership of the
Company may place limitations on the use of these net operating loss
carryforwards. The Company has recorded a full valuation allowance against its
deferred tax asset due to the uncertainty of realizing the related benefit.

(9)   NEW ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

      In June 1997, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Statement of
Financial Accounting Standards No. 130, "Reporting Comprehensive Income" ("SFAS
130"). SFAS 130 establishes standards for the reporting of comprehensive income
and its components in a full set of general-purpose financial statements. The
Company adopted SFAS 130 in fiscal 1998. Such adoption had no material effect on
the consolidated financial statements.

      In June 1997, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Statement of
Financial Accounting Standards No. 131, "Disclosures About Segments of An
Enterprise and Related Information" ("SFAS 131"). SFAS 131 revises information
regarding the reporting of operating segments. It also establishes standards for
related disclosures about products and services, geographic areas and major
customers. The Company will adopt SFAS 131 for annual 1998 financial reporting
and has not yet evaluated the impact of such adoption on the notes to its annual
consolidated financial statements.

                 FAMOUS DAVE'S OF AMERICA, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
                     MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF
                  FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

OVERVIEW

    The business of Famous Dave's of America, Inc. and subsidiaries (the
"Company") is to develop and operate American roadhouse-style barbeque
restaurants under the name "Famous Dave's." As of June 28, 1998, the Company
operated nineteen restaurants, twelve in Minnesota, four in Wisconsin, two in
Iowa and one in Illinois with four additional units in development, two in 
Minnesota, one in Iowa and a "Blues Club" (Scheduled to open in second quarter
of 1999) in Illinois.

    The Company was formed in March 1994 and opened its first restaurant in the
Linden Hills neighborhood of Minneapolis in June 1995. Through June 28, 1998,
the Company had opened a total of twenty-one restaurants, and closed two during
the first six months of 1998. The Company currently operates three "Lodge"
restaurants featuring barbeque entrees, a rustic North Woods decor and big band
music. In addition the Company operates fourteen nostalgic roadhouse barbecue
shacks of which seven have been opened as, or converted to, a full service
format which resembles the Lodge concept. The Company also operates a "Blues
Club" (featuring an authentic Chicago Blues Club decor and live music seven
nights a week) and a "Take-Out and Catering" facility. All of the Company's
restaurants feature similar menu items, consistent preparation methods and
uniform kitchen layouts.

    The future additional revenues and profits, if any, will depend upon various
factors, including additional market acceptance of the Famous Dave's concept,
the quality of the restaurant operations, the ability to successfully expand
into new markets, the ability of the Company to raise additional financing as
required and general economic conditions. There can be no assurances the Company
will successfully implement its expansion plans, in which case it will continue
to be dependent on the revenues from existing operations. The Company also faces
all of the risks, expenses and difficulties frequently encountered in connection
with the expansion and development of an expanding business. Furthermore, to the
extent that the Company's expansion strategy is successful, it must manage the
transition to multiple-site and higher-volume operations, the control of
overhead expenses and the addition of necessary personnel.

    Components of operating expenses include operating payroll and fringe
benefits, occupancy costs, repair and maintenance, and advertising and
promotion. Certain of these costs are variable and will fluctuate as sales
fluctuate. The primary fixed costs are corporate and restaurant management and
occupancy costs. The Company's experience is that when a new restaurant opens,
it incurs higher than normal levels of labor and food costs until operations
stabilize, usually during the first three months of operation. The Company
believes, however, that as restaurant management and staff gain experience,
labor scheduling, food cost management and operating expense control are
improved to levels similar to those at the Company's more established
restaurants.

    General and administrative expenses include all corporate and administrative
functions that serve to support existing operations and provide an
infrastructure to support future growth. Management, supervisory and staff
salaries, employee benefits, travel, recruiting, training, rent and office
supplies are major items in this category.

      The following discussion and analysis of financial condition and results
of operations should be read in conjunction with the accompanying unaudited
condensed consolidated financial statements and notes thereto and the audited
consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company's
Form 10-KSB for the fiscal year ended December 28, 1997.

</TABLE>

                                        

SALES, NET

    Net sales for the thirteen weeks ended June 28, 1998 were $10,925,000
compared to $3,797,000 for the same period in 1997, a 188% increase. For the
twenty-six weeks ended June 28, 1998, net sales were $18,659,000 compared to
$6,038,000 for the same period in 1997, a 209% increase. The increase in net
sales is primarily due to the addition of fourteen restaurants opened during the
four quarters subsequent to June 29, 1997, as well as an increase in
non-restaurant revenues. The restaurant openings were added to the base of five
restaurants open as of June 29, 1997. The Company has three restaurants in the
Minneapolis/St. Paul market which have been open for more than eighteen months.
The opening of additional units in the same market area has significantly
impacted each of these restaurants. The resulting redeployment of customer
demand has resulted in reductions in individual restaurant revenue of
approximately 20% as compared to the same period in 1997. These restaurants were
all originally operating at high volume levels relative to the size of the
units. All new restaurants have been opened in accordance with management's
overall development program for the market and management anticipates that
revenue levels at these locations will stabilize as development efforts move
outside of the Minneapolis/St. Paul market.

FOOD AND BEVERAGE COSTS

    Food and beverage costs for the thirteen weeks ended June 28, 1998 were
$3,955,000 or 36.2% of net sales, compared to $1,403,000 or 37.0% of net sales
for the same period in 1997. For the twenty-six weeks ended June 28, 1998, food
and beverage costs were $6,687,000 or 35.8% of net sales, compared to $2,183,000
or 36.2% of net sales for the same period in 1997. The decrease in food and
beverage costs as a percent of net sales was primarily due to improved
purchasing economies, including contract pricing of certain pork items,
partially offset by costs associated with increased sales of lower margin retail
grocery items.

LABOR AND BENEFITS

    Labor and benefits for the thirteen weeks ended June 28, 1998 were
$2,909,000 or 26.6% of net sales, compared to $847,000 or 22.3% of net sales for
the same period in 1997. For the twenty-six weeks ended June 28, 1998, labor and
benefits were $5,065,000 or 27.2% of net sales compared to $1,419,000 or 23.5%
of net sales for the same period in 1997. Labor costs have been higher in this
period due to a heightened emphasis on training and execution in company
restaurants, as well as the introduction of full table service in several
restaurants that were formerly counter service. In addition, full service
restaurants which operate in states without a "tip credit" (such as Minnesota)
experience a higher wage rate for dining room labor.

OPERATING EXPENSES

    Operating expenses for the thirteen weeks ended June 28, 1998 were
$2,039,000 or 18.6% of net sales, compared to $694,000 or 18.3% of net sales for
the same period in 1997. For the twenty-six week period ended June 28, 1998,
operating expenses were $3,690,000 or 19.8% of net sales compared to $1,150,000
or 19.0% of net sales for the same period in 1997. The increase in operating
expenses as a percent of net sales is primarily attributable to increased repair
and maintenance costs and initial distribution expenses related to retail
grocery items partially offset by decreases in rent and advertising costs as a
percent of net sales. 

DEPRECIATION AND AMORTIZATION

    Unit-level depreciation and amortization for the thirteen weeks ended June
28, 1998 were $557,000 or 5.1% of net sales compared to $114,000 or 3.0% of net
sales during the same period in 1997. Unit-level depreciation and amortization
for the twenty-six week period ended June 28, 1998 were $994,000 or 5.3% of net
sales compared to $238,000 or 3.9% of net sales for the same period in 1997. The
increase in unit-level depreciation and amortization results from higher
construction costs associated with units opened in fiscal 1997 and 1998. Units
opened in 1996 and prior were conversions of existing structures which generally
had lower levels of investment in relation to sales and thus lower levels of
depreciation expense.

PRE-OPENING EXPENSES

Pre-opening expenses, which beginning in the first quarter of 1998 are charged
to expense as they are incurred, were $399,000 or 3.7% of net sales for the
thirteen weeks ended June 28, 1998 compared to $282,000 or 7.4% of net sales
during the same period in 1997. Pre-opening expenses for the twenty-six week
period were $909,000 or 4.9% of net sales compared to $283,000 or 4.7% of net
sales for the same period in 1997. Prior to March 31, 1997, these expenses were
deferred and charged to expense over no longer than a twelve-month period
following the opening of the Unit. These expenses reflect the opening of four
new units in the first quarter of 1998, three new units in the second quarter of
1998 and the initial development of four additional locations during the second
quarter of 1998.

INCOME FROM UNIT-LEVEL OPERATIONS

    Income from unit-level operations totaled $1,066,000 or 9.8% of net sales,
for the thirteen weeks ended June 28, 1998, compared to $457,000, or 12.0% of
net sales, in the corresponding period of 1997. For the twenty-six week period
ended June 28, 1998, income from unit-level operations was $1,314,000 or 7.0% of
net sales compared to $765,000 or 12.7% of net sales for the same period in
1997. Income from unit-level operations represents income from operations before
general and administrative expenses. Although income from unit-level operations
should not be considered an alternative to income/loss from operations as a
measure of the Company's operating performance, such unit-level measurement is
commonly used as an additional measure of operating performance in the
restaurant industry and certain related industries. The change in income from
unit-level operations, both in amount and as a percent of sales, from 1997 to
1998 is attributable to the increase in net sales from additional units opened,
the impact of pre-opening expenses, and the other changes in costs and expenses
as discussed above.

                     MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF
            FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (CONTINUED)

GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES

    General and administrative expenses for the thirteen weeks ended June
28,1998 were $1,434,000 or 13.1% of net sales, compared to $1,498,000 or 39.4%
of net sales for the same period in 1997. For the twenty-six week period ended 
June 28, 1998, general and administrative expenses were $3,343,000 or 17.9% of
net sales compared to $2,565,000 or 42.5% of net sales for the same period in
1997. The reduction in general and administrative expenses as a percent of net
sales reflects increased sales and the Company's adjustment of its corporate 
infrastructure to a reduced level which management believes is appropriate to 
support its current, more controlled plans for expansion.


SEVERANCE AND RESTRUCTURING

    In March 1998, the Company recorded a provision totaling $1,146,000 for
severance and restructuring. This amount includes severance costs, real estate
costs and a provision for write-off of a discontinued point-of-sale system.

PROVISION FOR RESTAURANT CLOSINGS

   In March 1998, the Company implemented a plan to close two restaurants. As
part of this plan, the Company has recorded a provision of $1,589,000 to lower
the carrying value of the assets of these restaurants to estimated net
realizable value. The Company closed these restaurants during the second quarter
of fiscal 1998.

LOSS FROM OPERATIONS

   Loss from operations totaled $368,000 or 3.3% of net sales, for the thirteen
weeks ended June 28, 1998 compared to $1,041,000, or 27.4% of net sales, in the
corresponding period of 1997. The decrease in loss from operations is primarily
attributable to increased income from unit-level operations from new units
opened and a reduction in the level of general and administrative expenses. For
the twenty-six weeks ended June 28, 1998 loss from operations totaled $4,764,000
or 25.5% of net sales compared to $1,800,000 or 29.8% of net sales for the same
period in 1997. For the twenty-six week period ended June 28, 1998, loss from
operations is impacted by a severance and restructuring charge of $1,146,000 or
6.1% of net sales and a provision for loss on restaurants to be disposed of
$1,589,000 or 8.5% of net sales, offset by increased income from unit-level
operations from new units opened and reduced general and administrative
expenses.

INTEREST AND OTHER INCOME (EXPENSE), NET

   Interest and other income (expense), net, primarily represents interest
income received from short-term investments offset by interest expense on
capital lease obligations. Interest and other income (expense), net, decreased
to $58,000 and $194,000 for the thirteen and twenty-six week periods ended June
28, 1998 from $120,000 and $259,000 for the same periods in 1997, respectively.
The decrease in income in 1998 compared to 1997 was primarily due to the reduced
level of short-term investments in 1998.

NET LOSS/NET LOSS PER COMMON SHARE

   Net loss for the thirteen weeks ended June 28, 1998 was $310,000, or $.04 
per share on 8,827,590 weighted average shares outstanding, compared to a net 
loss of $921,000, or $.15 per share on 6,022,618 weighted average shares
outstanding, during the comparable period in 1997. The decrease in net loss and
net loss per share is attributable to increased income from unit-level
operations from new units opened, a reduction in general and administrative
expenses and an increased number of shares outstanding. For the twenty-six week
period ended  June 28, 1998, the net loss was $4,690,000 or $.53 per share on
8,794,332 weighted average shares outstanding, compared to  $1,541,000 or $.26
per share on 6,017,615 weighted average shares outstanding,  for the same
period in 1997. The increase in net  loss and net loss per share for the
twenty-six week period is primarily due to  severance and restructuring charges
of $1,146,000 or $.13 per share and a  provision for loss on restaurants to be
disposed of $1,589,000 or $.18 per  share, partially offset by increased income
from unit-level operations from  new units opened, a reduction in general and
administrative expenses and an increased number of shares outstanding.

                     MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF
            FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (CONTINUED)

FINANCIAL CONDITION, LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

   As of June 28, 1998, the Company held cash and short-term investments of
approximately $7.0 million compared to $18.3 million as of December 28, 1997. As
reflected in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements, this
decrease in cash and short-term investments during the twenty-six weeks ended
June 28, 1998 primarily represents cash used for the purchase and/or development
of property, equipment and leasehold improvements (approximately $8.0 million)
and operating activities (approximately $3.9 million) partially offset by
proceeds of stock option exercises (approximately $800,000).

    In June 1997, the Company called for redemption of its Class A Warrants,
giving warrant holders 30 days notice to exercise their warrants prior to
redemption by the Company. During July 1997, the warrant call was completed with
2,637,000 of the outstanding 2,645,000 warrants being exercised. Net proceeds to
the Company from such exercises totaled approximately $22.3 million.

   To continue the Company's expansion, the Company anticipates that additional
financing will be required during fiscal 1998 and 1999. The Company anticipates
that future development and expansion will be funded or financed primarily
through cash and short-term investments currently held, proceeds from the sale
of additional equity and/or debt securities, and proceeds from other forms of
financing such as sale leaseback, build to suit financing or other credit
facilities. The Company has two signed letters of intent with a real estate
financing concern for sale leaseback transactions related to four       
properties currently owned by the Company. These sale leaseback transactions
would result in $5,700,000 of proceeds to the Company. There can be no 
assurance that these transactions will be completed or that additional 
financing required will be available on terms acceptable or favorable to the 
Company or its Shareholders.


SEASONALITY

    The Company's units typically generate higher revenues during the second and
third quarters (which are summer months for the Company's locations) than in the
first and fourth quarters (which are winter months) as a result of its
concentration of locations in Minnesota and Wisconsin market areas.

SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

    The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 provides a "safe
harbor" for forward-looking statements. Certain information included in this
Form 10-QSB and other materials filed or to be filed by the Company with the
Securities and Exchange Commission (as well as information included in oral
statements or other written statements made or to be made by the Company)
contains statements that are forward-looking. A number of important factors
could, individually or in the aggregate, cause actual results to differ
materially from those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statements.
Such factors include, but are not limited to, the following: competition in the
casual dining restaurant market; additional market acceptance of the Company's
concept; additional financing on acceptable terms; the Company's ability to
open additional restaurants in a timely manner; consumer spending trends and 
habits; weather conditions in the regions in which the Company develops and 
operates restaurants; and laws and regulations affecting labor and employee 
benefit costs. For further information regarding these and other factors, see 
the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-KSB for the fiscal year ended December 
28, 1997.
