Famous Dave's at The Collection at RiverPark in Oxnard Closed Its Doors Last Month

Famous Dave’s opened its 3rd Ventura County location at The Collection at RiverPark on December 18, 2013.

More recently, last month, Famous Dave’s closed it sole remaining Ventura County location - this very Oxnard location. It operated at The Collection for approximately five years.

The Simi Valley location closed in January 2016. The Thousand Oaks location (now home to Blaze Pizza and The Habit Burger), closed in January 2015.

That means, no more Famous Dave’s here in Ventura County. Perhaps not a big surprise, given its 3 out of 5 star rating in Yelp. That’s not particularly easy to do.

If you still have a hankering for Famous Dave’s BBQ, not to worry. It is available just 85 miles away from the Conejo Valley in Irvine. Or just 77 miles away in Rancho Cucamonga. Or if you’d prefer, there’s a Bakersfield location, which is about two hours away. www.famousdaves.com

Marie Callender's Ventura Closed Its Doors Today

The VC Star Tweeted today was the last day the Marie Callender’s at 1295 Victoria Avenue in Ventura after operating for 40 years.

Yikes! That leaves one remaining Ventura County Marie Callender’s - in Camarillo at 185 E. Daily Drive. Or you can drive to Northridge or Sherman Oaks to get your lemon meringue pie fix. www.mariecallenders.com
