Jesus Santana

Trudy Conway

I always make it to Famous Dave's when I visit family. I love the ribs tips and the amazing dessert - especially the bread pudding.

Don Westman

We had a great meal. The manager JC came over and greeted us and made us feel welcome. Great service, good food and amazing people !!

Hector Mejias

I went there today with my friend Jim who lover BBQ. This place food is incredible. If you like real BBQ food, this is your place. Our waitress was Tea, she is very nice, explained different dishes and suggesting the the best ones. I highly recommend this place .

David Carter

Food was delicious, server was very good, but who moved me the most was Elizabeth, the Hostess. I took my 77 year old Mother to lunch, and she walks at a slow pace. As soon as we walked in the door, and Elizabeth saw me helping my Mom, she immediately grabbed two menus and set them at the closest table. When we were finished with our meal and got up from our table, Elizabeth saw us and immediately went to the door and opened it for us. She gently tapped my Mom on the shoulder and wished her a good day, and asked her to come back again because she would like to see her again. The smile on my Mom's face made my day. Elizabeth is amazing. Although I was already a fan of Famous Dave's, my loyalty has increased tenfold. Elizabeth definitely deserves some recognition from Famous Dave's. I encourage everyone to visit Famous Dave's at Chandler Fashion Mall and mention you read a wonderful review about her. I bet it would make her day.

La Quinta Blackketter

Great service great food.. Our server, I think his name was Nick was the best service we have ever gotten there. But famous Daves is the best option for BBQ in Fresno.

Corey Sol

Good BBQ! Yum. Good fresh meat

Armando Beltran

Good food, fast service!

Daniel Hamilton

Famous days though it's a nice place to eat make sure you get their South side rib tips. Great customer service make sure I ask for complimentary Mini chips. I love the variety of sauces a taste for every tone


The other night, I ordered Famous Dave's through a delivery service and had to wait almost 2 HOURS to receive my food and it wasn't the delivery service fault at all. The driver contacted me almost immediately stating that they didn't have my order yet and that was okay, I liked the update. However, one hour after the order was placed, he still kept in contact saying it wasn't done. Again, appreciated. The last straw was when I was close to 70+ minutes in and the driver said he's getting frustrated with the carry out, saying it wasn't ready. The driver mentioned that most places like this ignore the delivery drivers and put them last. It sucks because we are customers as well, so why do we have to suffer. And the driver said he saw ONE receipt on the carry out slip, so we know where the priorities are. So in the end, my food came very late, almost 2 hours!!!! I'm beyond mad with how you organize your delivery. Again, not the delivery fault, the restaurant. Manager: PLEASE make sure the carry out knows about these delivery orders and it's not cool to have an order take 90+ minutes.

juan tanori

Good Bar-B-Que, good service. I left satisfied.

Larry Shulman

Always happy with the BBQ brisket. The smoked sausage is pretty incredible too.

Selina Ostberg

We love this place and the sassy waitress Jen.

Jeramiah W

Best BBQ anywhere. Chris, our server was like treasured family. Prices are competitive. Atmosphere is like a mountain lodge and decorated with interesting, vintage items. Family atmosphere.

Daniel Stockton

Love the sampler plate great value and great food

Shirley Karling

The best bbq in town it's located in Quebec Square can't miss it handicap accessible, handicap parking in front Booth's or table, bar also

Mark Saruwatari

Simply ribs! Great, great service!

Cristal Avila

It was ok not to bad

George Padilla

The service here is top-notch right from the get-go and you walk in. You are quickly acknowledged and seated and beverage orders are taken and immediately. Food is Servpro employee and presented very delectably. This is a great bargain for the price you pay given the service is top-notch and the food is delicious. Plenty of public parking all around you and easy access for anybody with physical challenges.

Liz Mad

This is a place for comfort food. Great barbecue

Sam Kofron

Food was good service was quick.

Shawn Hawkins

Decent happy hour pricing and ribs were good.

David Bayba

I mostly order the hot link sausage - it's great.

David Oharo

The food is excelent and service was even better

Kandice Hughes

Delicious as always. Kids had fun and ate their whole meal (cheeseburger sliders). I had the 2 meat plate (chicken and hot links), hubby had the founder's feast and we both ended up with lunch for the next day. So even though it can be a little pricey, you are getting 2 meals worth of food. Good service though when it started getting busy our waitress kept forgetting things.

Teresa Foster

Always can count on them for family food and fun. Never have to worry!

iyamu15 .

Great service, good portions and I like some of the new items they've added to the menu


Careful with the hot wings, I ordered the extra hot. They were scorching, I couldn't eat them. Know better next time.

Landon Noah

Ribs are only things i eat here, so only know their bbq flavors which are best I've tasted

Debra Christianson

The server was great, unfortunately the extremely average. The burnt ends we're basically fat and did not appear to be typical burnt ends. The food is all very fatty and the side portions quite small. Will go elsewhere for BBQ in the future.

Heath H

We placed a to go order and we were told that one of the items we ordered would feed 2 to 3 people. Told the person on the phone we didn't have a menu so needed to make sure this was enough. Got there and that one thing that was supposed to feed 2 - 3 ... was an appetizer and would only satisfy a small child. So they put the blame on a call center in Colorado Springs that has repeatedly said this to people. They did not fix the problem and said we could order and pay for more food. Crazy people and policies. We already waited an hour the the tiny bit of food, and it was supposed to be a half hour. Left an email with corporate and they never responded. UPDATE: The manager at this location resolved the issue to our satisfaction. Changed from 1 star to 4 as we shouldn't have had to deal with this.

Orlinda Rael

Great food. Had a good waitress

Melissa Landuyt

Brisket was good as usual. My boyfriend got the burnt butz with his combo. Best thing I've had there in a while.

Yazmin Alanis

Food is always great, can get a little busy but had been worth the wait.

Daze With Daryle

Love Famous Dave's, BBQ is always good. The rib tips are delicious. The bread pudding is so good. Eat here you will not be disappointed.

Casey Friedman

The perfect amount for a nice lunch.

jessica stewart

The meat was tough. 3 different times.

Matt Williams

We wish there was one in prescott, we've eaten at Dave's bbq around the state.

Chena Hernandez

Loved it. Good service and food was great

Christine Jones

Good food friendly people..

Merlyn Priester

Best bbq ih Fresno

James McNutt

We went for lunch and had a coupon from their email club. Food was pretty good, BBQ beef anyway. I'd avoid their BBQ potato chips. My wife had a burger with steak fries and they were ok. The poor staff was overwhelmed as some people didn't come in, but they did a pretty good job keeping everyone happy.

Darin Wilson

Been here a few times haven’t had a bad bite yet...and they have Great White!!! Great service, get the catfish fingers.

Katheryn Kennedy

Just wonderful, I'll have to visit our restaurant here in Long Beach, CA.

Menashe Gold

Friendly staff, GREAT food. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!

royal amusement

Used to come here long ago with my family and the food was amazing, came back a couple days ago and the food was super dry :( expensive for the portions we were given to, it’s so sad seeing what happened

Hai Nguyen

Great ribs and bbq sauces are great.

Andre Lefebvre

Very good foods, and very good service, as usual. Awesome place!

prince cheatwood

Usually Famous Dave’s is pretty good but this location dropped the ball a bit. The brisket was dry and the ribs were borderline but the flavor was there. The food came out warm not hot, the service was good overall but my wife and I agreed we probably won’t eat at this location again.

Daniel Aguero

You can't beat the ribs at this place and their different sauces my wife enjoys the cornbread muffins, and their tangerine in house beer delicious if you like anything that taste like blue moon or shock top


The manager Mike resolved my issue extremely fast !

Tim Daniels

1st time and service was great. Evan was very helpful as was Trey. Food was very good HH prices were very reasonable. We'll be back.

Heidi Clapp

Food is not great but even more annoying, their bathrooms were out of order. On a Friday night. Both men's and women's. I was told to try one of the other restaurants a couple of other doors down. They begrudgingly took 5.00 off my bill when I had to leave because I had to use the bathroom. And I had to ask for that. They acted like it no big deal to have no bathrooms. If the food was fantastic, I could have maybe dealt with it, but the food is marginal at best. Never again!!

Omari Washington

The food here was GREAT and the service was even better.Our server was on point with everything and the manager was a sweetheart as well.

Elizabeth Waldron

This was my first time here and my whole family throughly enjoyed it!!! We loved it honestly lol we will be back the first chance we get!!!! Oh we had the family meal with 3 meats and sides and it fed all 5 of us with leftovers!!!!

Alex Hernandez

Always busy but consistently with great food

Cay Strother

Burnt butz were great! Haven't been in for a while and it was good. Great place to meet a friend for lunch.

Lnicole Hardy

Great atmosphere, the food is "on point" if I do say so myself, staff members are magnificent! I'll just say you'll have to see what all this rave is about for yourselves!!

Sheane Enstrom

Delicious, love all the different flavored bbq sauces. Love the hot pickles as well!

Randal Pettyjohn

Great St. Louis Spare Ribs along with Brisket Sandwich and Fries, fall off the bone good! Great service, fantastic Bar with plenty of seating as well.

A Brandon

Great bbq options on the menu and sauces. For a chain the restaurant is definitely better then other local bbq spots in the Phoenix area. The Miss Pig lunch special is a great selection if you want to sample the different types of meat options.

Shiinita Nunez

My husband love to come here and also i like be here ordering the feast for 2

Jonnathan Alcantara

Burnt ends and Wilbur beans! I need say nothing else! But I will, they have a great to go entrance that gets you in and out, in about 10 minutes. Worth the trip.

Jason K

I had the Mini Pig Roast and it was fantastic. Everything was perfect. The sausage had a great char, ribs fell off the bone and the sauces were so flavourful. Even the mustard based slaw and pickled onions were great. WILL BE BACK!

Sean tuggle

Good food had the sampler. Good amount of food.

Aaron Rogers

Was so much grissel in my tips was so bad it was nasty the ribs were tuff the barbeque was nasty don't recommend for anyone maybe my dogs

Juan Rodriguez

Pretty good lunch prices and food, good waiters and kind

Kent Fuge

Consistently great BBQ. They are my go to BBQ place. Perfectly cooked meats, great sides and multiple awesome choices for sauces.

Fred Hicks

Will never return. Our food was brought to us in less than 10 mins almost like it was set aside to be thrown out. And over half of it was warm and cold . I never got a refill offered and the for the reheated fries when we were told they were just made!!!! All this on mother's day outing as well,,,sad I watched this place go from an A plus rating when it opened years ago to a zero plus minus restaurant.

Holly Poitra

Quality of the food was disappointing and the service was terrible. The manager refused to serve my boyfriend a beard even though he was entirely sober.

Loren Howell

This was the location southeast of Chandler Fashion Center. We went on a Thursday for the all-you-can-eat rib tips. This was the only time we didn't like the food at Famous Dave's. The rib tips were heavily oversalted; a cheap eatery trick to kill your appetite. We expected better. The service was also uncharacteristically slow. We had one plate of rib tips and didn't want any more. At least they were right about one thing; that was all we could eat. We'll be going to the San Tan location from now on.

Official Motive

Excellent food. The ribs were great. Corn was alright. Mac and cheese 7/10. The chips they give you at the start of the meal are great kettle cooked BBQ chips. I look forward to eating here again.

Terri Hammond


David Mott

Thursday rib tips all u can eat 12.99 with 2sides and corn muffins Crazy Good saved receipt from last time I visited gets free desert so 2 people 2great meal's under 30.00 once in a while I get a deal.


Service was great but food quality suffers. Dry meat, cold and tasteless Mac n cheese. Potato salad is overwhelmed with celery. Nothing here that makes me crave their bbq any longer. Loved their feast platters for a long time now it's just a boring . I just wanted to get up and leave. Obviously I am not the only one who feels this way judging by the occupancy at less that half full at 6:30 on a Monday. Good luck Dave, a very noticeable change has taken place.

Tim Sanner

Great BBQ! Everything on the menu is very good. You can't go wrong here.

Mark Cook

Great food every time. Family friendly

Tom Howe

Chopped pork was mostly fat gristle and chunks of bone! Never had bad food at any other Famous Dave's. Not going there again .

beverly russ

Ok not as good as the one in Puyallup WA. Service included

Ken Sergio

Service was good food was cold and dry.

Cotis Pouges

Service was very very slow today. Waited for 30 mins, just to get a box for my food to go, and then the credit card machine was down so had to grab some cash. That place is really going down hill from when it first opened

Tamara Lua

Great food; great old hunting pictures - great atmosphere.

Linda Melo

It was great! It was delicious!

joseph puchacz

Great food, better service and good atmosphere.

james sturdivant

Great food and staff was on it. My family and I really enjoyed and looking to return soon.

Joseph Reyna

Excellent Baby Back Ribs!

Lloyd Watkins

Very good barbecue and nice size cold beers. Friendly, honest staff...will be back!

Russell G

The food was good and the service was great. My only problem was I've currently got a temporary disability placard due to an injury that I received from a motor vehicle accident and the Famous Dave's catering truck was parked in a handicapped parking spot. we notified manager and they failed to do anything about it.

Allyn Hoover

If I could leave a post without a star I would have, when I placed my order, I was very disappointed. Details were sent to famous Dave's. I was not a happy camper

James Otto

Good food, fast service. Took off a star due to zero contact after we paid the bill.

Shelby Lepacek

This restaurant in Chandler is pretty bad least to say. I would even give it half a star if I could. The restaurant itself is totally unsanitary, looked like it hasn't been cleaned in years. There's mold building up near the sink, very sticky un-mopped floors, unsanitary bathrooms, and dust on the ceiling columns. Definitely will not come back again, the food was adequate and reminded me of Chili's. The staff was also very "dull", no one seemed to enjoy their job or have a personality and couldn't take criticism lightly. The manager should have been better groomed as well. I bet they even ignored our comment to clean up better. Would not recommend to anyone, At least the one in Chandler.

Greg Stewart

Excellent food and our waitress Vivian was very nice and friendly. Plus you have to try the Devil's Spit's killer!!

Luisa Abeyta

We shy away from chain restaurants but this was so convenient on our way to VA medical center. What a nice surprise! Lots of choices even for gluten free me. Meat was super tender & flavorful. Very little fat if any. Sides were reasonably priced & best I've had at ANY BBQ place in Denver area. Great staff hurried for us as we let them know we were on our way to an appointment.

Jose Zambrano

Great, delicious food, beverages, service, atmosphere awesome.

Adriana Evette Hernandez Torres

Delicious food, great decor. Awesome for birthdays and get togethers. Definitely recommend the American Feast. It’s ALOT of food for low price

Michael Greer

Bbq food is my passion and so are chicken tenders thats y I got them lol. The staff is very welcoming nice and full of enthusiasm in there job. It is my first time here and I guess my famous dave cherry has been poped. Highy recommend to anyone that loves bbq food and a very welcoming environment!

Tom Wells

Brisket too fatty and oversaused. Had indigestion for 2 days. Wait person good service.

Rosanne Guglielmo

Great food as well as great service!

Pam Rusk

Food and service good. Menu's were filthy to look through. Food particles on every page of the menu.

Ash Marie

Love the food. Nice staff. Good drinks

Deborah Munguia

My son took me for mother's day , was busy but service was still good food was delicious

Staci Mayes

Very good. A little pricey for the amount of food.

Chris Daly

Love the rib tips and brisket. A little overcooked the last time I visited, but usually pretty tender and delicious.

Allison Atten

The burnt butts are amazing!

Kim Smed

Always a good experience. This may not be the best BBQ but it is priced well and there isn't anything bad about it. Really good BBQ seams to come at a premium these days but Famous Dave's doesn't have that rediculously over priced menu. They offer most of the favorites, all done very well at a pretty good price.

Virginia Puchacz

Good food and good service.

Luna Hurst

Everything on the menu is delish my fav the Cajun Chicken Sandwich

Star Shine

Not great. Food wasn't hot. Rib rub tasted different like a mustard rub or something. Chopped pork was so dried out I could barely eat it. Used to be my favorite bbq but we probably won't go back.


Don't eat all day then go to this 0lace to consume some good ol down home BBQ...OH and the cornbread is to die for

The Amazing Fire Waffle

Famous Dave's has been a staple of Denver for so long to me. The food tastes fantastic and comes pretty quickly. The people working there are all kind and friendly and want to help you. There are just so many little things that no doubt make this the best barbecue place in town. Plus, the BBQ sauce is good and can be bought for home use.

Joni McKenzie

I like they're sauces. Generous portions and their beans are so good. We had good service the few times we have been there. We like it and will go back.

Celia Munoz

The food was delicious but the service was to slow

Brian Gulli

I always love going to this place for BBQ. They are quick. The food is good. And the service is always great.

Michael DeNinno

This is more about the atmosphere than service or food. Fun and entertaining surroundings, but very standard BBQ and service from the point of walking in the door was well below par and not very friendly. From waiting while empty tables were available to unfriendly waiters to even rude waiters serving the table next to ours. Probably won't ever go back after the experience.

Mike Mahon

Great place and great food. Never disappointed

Shannon Thomas

Celebrated Aaliyah and her double digit birthday. I was surprised no birthday accommodation was given.

Bradley Chapman

Came in Friday about 7:30 pm. Asked bartender what was good today and ordered the brisket plate. The sides were great but the brisket was tough and dry, not what I expected at all. Tasted like warmed up leftovers with no flavor. Way overpriced for this.

Momma Matz720

Were seated right away. Food was delish! Thanks to staff and our waitress we had a splended evening dinner. Must try the jacked and stacked burger and the chicken breaded sandwich yum!

R Medina

Our waitress Lexie was great, awesome service! Awesome bbq ribs!

Jay Charley

Service was on cue very friendly waitress constantly checking to see & ensure that we were enjoying the food and topping off our drinks and even dropping in to have a conversation from time to time, look forward to having another family get together as we always do

Silvia Paige

A great go to spot for BBQ at decent prices if you're ever in the area. I definitely enjoy the environment and originally being from TN, I can say this place is not a bad choice to satisfy your BBQ desires!

Anastasia Jackson

It's super yummy! Wish there was one closer to where I live :(

Phrog Heather

Service was great, southern style sides were excellent and included many tasty vegtable options. That is where they get the two stars, those two things were excellent. Not impressed with the meats, pork better than the beef by far though. Bathroom in need of a deep cleaning, unfortunately, probably won't be back.

Kenneth Terry

bbq... delicious. I'll return with my coworkers. It has a nice interior.

Deandre Andrade

They have great service, they make there food very good and I had amazing timee

Stacie Boschert

Excellent food. Reasonably prices. Very sweet and friendly staff. Very helpful. Will definitely be going again.

Trav Jord

Outstanding staff and awesome brisket sandwich. I wish they had hotter hot sauce but I found it difficult to get it hot enough for me. Overall a great experience with kind waitresses and waiters.

erica m

I use to love coming here but the last time I went had a bad experience food came cold and waited a long time to be seated

Alan Hendren

This is a joke of a BBQ place .The service was great will say that. Friendly staff. The food tho? Worse BBQ ever. The ribs look and taste like the Walmart brand ribs. Very thin for 30 bucks. Their chips are cold and nasty. The burnt ends was a joke.. the broccoli was hard as rocks.Not real BBQ here. Do your self a favor spend your money else where .

Victoria Brizuela

I like my humberger the chiken was really like barbq in a grill

Laura Holder

Went with my boo for BBQ. Really nice location although the floor plan is so open that dates night is odd. I'm ok with the whole family running thing but it wasnt conducive to my situation. We had the sampler platter and some side eat it for a couple days. In little hes letss say hungrier than me by about 100 or so pounds and he was full. Dave's devil's spit bbq sauce is amazing. Id lick it off a old rusty barn. Worth the honky hoedown vibe.

Judy Roa

Delicious food!! And wait time was short. Highly recommend it

Michael Madrid

It's pretty decent bar-b-q. The ribs weren't so tender that I would claim world famous.

Anthony Rocha

Best BBQ restaurant in town. Tonya had great service.

steve handy

We ordered tonight. The food is good but the problems are many. The Russian roulette of bbq. This is the third time having it delivered. First time no BBQ sauce and skimpy quantities. Second time perfect, sauce and a great variety, the sides were healthy incredible. Tonight missing a side and magnificent other had zero sides. My brisket had 4 pieces maybe 4 inches long. If you order for delivery you never know and for the excessive cost roll the dice. Call them and that's another turn of events. Next time ask for William and tell him what happened. Who the hell is William the fricken wizard of Oz and why next time and not tonight. Not a place I care to deal with again. Be warned. I need to modify this. I was contacted by the GM Mike. He understood and worked with us. Ordering to go puts your order in others hands and can put a reputation of a restaurant at stake. Mike worked with us and have heard that these delivery services have access to your meal. Mike reached out and all is good. Sorry for the negative post. I went today for a late lunch with my magnificent other and enjoyed it so much. You must go here in person or you have robbed yourself of a fantastic experience. I thanked the GM Mike for responding to the original post. Mike is a great guy our waitress was a gem. Sorry I that I originally posted anything negative about Famous Dave's without actually being there in person. Perfect portions, great service and magnificent food. My favorite BBQ establishment.

Aesthetics RN

Love Famous Dave's don't get to eat here much so when I do I really eat, my face is pulled pork o think it's the Georgia plate or something like that. They have great potatoes and corn bread and basically everything you could ever want in a bbq place and the devils spit sauce is rockin awesome

Joseph Cutler

My favorite BBQ place in town, the food in here is amazing! The ribs, the wingsm everything is delicious and they have a lot of sauces.

Kimberly Sanford

Usually good food. Staff always seem confused or stressed in the take out section. Prices decent

Rey Lara

Well, the food was not good at all. Very dry and very bland food. Service was nice but a bit slow and selective when they felt like acknowledging you even if you're flagging them down. But again, nice people. However, nice people just aren't enough to bring me back to a famous Dave's ever again. The food just isn't worth it.

bob cassalia

Their brisket was tender and moist. Their fries were very tasty. We bought the feast and there was more food than 2 could eat so we had leftovers for the next day. Hope you get Famous Gage for a waiter. He was a great server and a quick wit.

Sylvia Higgins

Really great bbq! I especially love the Cedar Plank Salmon, mmmm yummy!!!

Greg Jackson

I frequent this place often like seriously often. Im a great cook myself but the one thing I can't duplicate is the smell and flavor of their ribs. Tenderness, I got you but when compared to the flavors unleashed, I yield. love the place and the to go usually is pretty fast. Never had to wait the full tine that they say it takes.

Mark Lazzeroni

The ultimate full slab of ribs with devil spit bbq sauce. Also side of mac and cheese and they're beans and corn bread, bomb bomb!

Leo Vasquez

Our experience was great. Pete gave us excellent service. There should be more people like him.

Gina Rojo

Great Place! Fun. Appreciate the Suggestion... Servers Have Great Smiles... Neat Happy Hour.... Cute Motif...

billy thompson

The manager Jennifer was awesome. The whole experience was great along with the food.

Larry Wafford

Great food, really great ribs and pork, great service. Always look forward to eating here.

Arianna Galvan

One of my fav spots for BBQ. Visited Fri evening I think. Feels similar to a cafe in Chicago I loved.

Guillermo Magana

Best server we had ever had there.

Steve Dupree

Always good, man I love this place! Ribs and Georgia chopped pork!


The first waitress is totally in the wrong field. The manager came and told me that she couldn't put the happy hour menu in because it was past 7pm. So she offered me the cheese, sausage & pickle plate for $8.50 instead of the happy hour $5. It would have been 7 if the first waitress wasn't so difficult to communicate with. I agreed to the plate for $3.50 more. I was hungry. The manager was quite well at communicating with me. She had another waitress tend to our table. The second waitress is why I gave 3 stars and not 1. Our beans had a burnt taste and she took them back. Our replacement beans had a burnt flavor too. The cook had confirmed that they had indeed burnt the beans. The bill came and I was charged $13.50 for my sausage plate. It was not $8.50 like the manager said.

Roxy Marie

Delicious food, nice atmosphere, great staff.

Ian Paterson

Texan brisket, smoky...superb. Pictures ? It's long gone...

Eleen G

Brisket was very dry, Brussels sprouts was drowniing in a plate of oil, Corn bread was excellent, server Erica was great and busy. She took the drink order, food order, served other customers... Took almost 15 mins to bring the check so we could pay and leave because they were hectic.... Change your process.


Good service and the food was ok.

Gracelee FelixRice

The service was ok. A little mix up and a bit on the laxed-side.....

Eve Johnson

Not Tony Romas but pretty good although pricey.

J Doog

Great Food & Service !!

Stephen Ross

Food was outstanding and served was attentive to our needs and very cordial.

Taylor Bischoff

DO NOT GO!!!! They have roaches In their food and probably won’t do a damn thing about it!!

Yi-An Lee

Amazing grubs, excellent different types of sauces -- definitely give them all a go on your meal because each one brings a different flavor out of the bbq. Service was not as great, however the food trumps all - we ended up flagging down the manager in order to order our food and spoke with three others who couldn't take our order before we ever saw our waitress- not quite a good first timer experience on that aspect. Great food, great ambiance, would highly recommend! PS GMO corn is bland and butter isn't real butter - sub it with something else.

Martin Mumba

I was really disappointed with the food at Famous Dave's, in the past I had bought from from here through Uber eats and I loved it. however, this was my first time there and the steak they gave me was cold and seemed like someone else left over... I could not finish it. It was pretty bad and the service was simply okay

Phil Vigil

Great atmosphere!!! Good service. Good food!

Traci Pogue

Delicious food and a great atmosphere!

eagle fire

Had a great meal. Memphis Rib, love them.

Lea Redmond

Wasn't impressed. The restaurant is changing owners so no acohol, the meat was dry. The food was semi-warm. What made it pretty cool was that we had a VERY VERY pleasant waitress who seem to be a supervisor. She was AWESOME. Wish I would of gotten her name. That was the best part of our visit.


Had an absolute awesome meal and service at "Famous Dave's" . Our waitress was sweet, beautiful, and Professional. Our 2 feast trays were impeccably delicious .

eselouis .

Service isnt good, for bbq it's not very good. Their sauces are good though.

Jim Stilwell

Always great food and friendly staff. Pro-tip: ask your server to draw you a piggie with the BBQ sauce.

Manuel Gonzalez

It's just ok. Nothing to get excited about. Service was slow, only about 6 customers in the entire restaurant. Our waitress was very nice and polite but she was working the area all by herself, therefore not her fault, we tipped her well. There was other staff there, but they were not involved or concerned with helping with the service. Doubt that I will return anytime soon.

T Kap

Great rib tips

Crystal Davey

Service was good and the food was excellent

Love this place. Love ALL of their meats. Try their spicy pickles.

Kristen Schultz

Decent prices for the portion and flavor you get. Try the firecracker green beans, they're delicious. My husband says the Memphis Style ribs are the best, but I prefer the Hot Links. Save room for the bread pudding as well. It is so good. Pro tip: do the survey on your receipt for a free dessert on your next visit. It's worth it!

Lenore Her

Took my baby brother here for his 15th birthday. We ordered their $80 platter that came with ribs, chicken, tri tips, fries, beans, coleslaw, corns, cornbread. There was three of us and we could barely finish it. My brother loved it.

Richard Lewin

My favorite barbecue restaurant. Always enjoy their ribs. There is a variety of other items as well.

Jean Anderson

Thought I'd give them one more try and was disappointed again Server's have repeatedly gotten order incorrect, this time in addition to order being wrong the meat was cold and the recommended Coleslaw tasted like it was made with jalapeno Well Mike and the district manager went above and beyond to see that I had a chance to have a better experience at the restaurant. Took my daughter and 3 of her children to lunch, unfortunately Mike was on vacation. Server was exceptional and went out of her way to please, orders came out as ordered this time, only complaint was the pulled pork was very salty and had a fatty taste to it, ribs were delicious as well as the sides. Overall a much better experience Thank you both for allowing us to try the restaurant again.

The food is always great. But the service is hit or miss each time. They are not rude or impolite. You never know if they will have enough staff that day. The last visit we had just been seated with menus. Then our waiter disappeared for 30 minutes. Another staff member came back and told us our waiter needed a break. We later saw that individual waiting tables in the less busy bar section. I do come back for the food. I just know I need to allow for that extra service time.

That Girl With Big Hair

Great food and great service! I personally enjoyed the mac and cheese and pink lemonade!!

Cristian Mateos

Used to be awesome, this last time was meh.

Daniel Levitz

Never disappointing, Famous Dave's ribs are tender and delicious every time. I wish they would stop using HFCS in their sauce however, they could substitute molasses or brown sugar and it would still be hot and sweet enough.

Great bbq! Ive been going to this location for 6 plus years and eat bbq at least once a week from other bbq places around the east valley(lucilles!(also great), cant stop smoking, rudys, joes real bbq, andrews, honey bears etc. Im only writing this review to clear up some of the bad reviews. No matter which one you go to, if you go on a regular basis, sometimes the meat will be dryer or not as good from the last one you had. Meats, especially beef, are like grains in wood and not always the same. No the burnt ends are not always real burnt ends or they would run out so quick or be double the price(I could be wrong but it is a hit or miss on these),but i still order them every time. Hands down famous daves has the best sides of any of them. There corn muffins and wilbur beans have no comparison. A little pricey but most bbq is. 50cent wings on weds. and there really good.(get them naked, add sauce).The meats are seasoned and smoked well and the Ribs always fall off the bone. 4 or 5 diffrent sauces(Texas Pit is my favorite). Staff is always great here. The to go area needs some attention(under staffed, one person taking orders, getting, and checking food, sometimes two but still slow. They always seem new (first job) or needing manager assistance. It can be frustrating to have to wait to place your order when nobody is in the line. FYI though i hate waiting. Overall Famous Daves is definitely worth going to if you have never been and worth trying again if your meat was a little dry.

Corey Cashman

Service was pretty decent. Not the best ever but I don't have anything bad to say about them.

Ricky Martinez

Famous For... Slow & Poor Service? Came here for lunch months ago after an event and loved the outdoor seating. Food was great, so I recommended it for dinner tonight. We had a *horrible* experience, however: We were sat down right away, restaurant was *maybe* 40% occupied. Host was really quick and nice. Server took 15mins to stop by, and when he did, he asked if we needed more time with the menu (it took everything in me not to crack a wise-guy comment). Food came out, and it was- at best- barely warm. It took our server another ten minutes to get refills when he came by almost a half-hour later. His section was so small, too, so I couldn’t wrap my head around it. He would disappear for gaps at a time. We saw him when he took our drink/meal order, and then when he came by for our refills (and didn’t see him again until it came time for the check). I’ve worked in this industry, so I thought perhaps the kitchen was behind; however, I let go of that assumption because he was *very* attentive to the group of ladies across from us. So I guess you should come dressed like you’re going to tip well if you’re coming to this joint (even though I always tip 20%, we made an exception and tipped below 15% because the service was deplorable). Will be reaching out to their upper management. The server would definitely benefit from some retraining!

Trina Acello

Food was ok. But $3.99 for a normal size ice tea??!! The drink cost over half of what the meal cost. Won't be back.

Shanice Stancil

I love Famous Dave’s food. This was my first time eating at this location. I usually eat at the one closer to my house. The waitress we had kept making jokes and was a little overboard with them. It was to the point where I didn’t feel comfortable saying anything without her being sassy or making fun of me or my friends. Overall, the food was great (like always). Only down side to the food is they mixed up a few things on our order.

Raymond Surprenant

Good place for the Bronco game! The food was excellent as always. I had the two Meats with chicken and brisket. Taste was outstanding and tender is always. Had a new drink this time. Long Island Iced Tea! It was outstanding. I truly enjoyed it.

William Reeves

Great bar early bird menu..

Cory Holmes

Such great service and the food is fantastic!

Nicholas Perez

This isn't my first time but as always, their main selling point are the ribs and equally delicious are the appetizers. Today, I had the catfish, ribs, chicken wings, fries, and their chili. I was thoroughly impressed as usual. Prices are reasonable too.


Great service, fresh food ate as a group of 4 they were attentive the food is delicious. The place has a lot of character. We will be going back.

victor murillo

Love eating here for birthday 's, great food, environment, and friendly service.

Chip Medina

The ribs are the best in my opinion the wings are smoke and deep fried if you are a lover of wings you have to try AM from famous Dave's

Noah Squires

They are great and prices are good for what you get . rib tips and the nachos are really good here. kids actully eat the food here to which is nice. if you love bbq they do a good job and service is on point

Matthew Candelaria

Had a amazing ultimate burger with some blue cheese.. famous Ashley had AWESOME!!! Customer service thank you.

Mike Moreno

Customer service was 2nd to none!! Food was amazing! Manager was the best helping the team and being part of the crew! Great job guys!!!!

Jag Arthur

Famous Dave's is mouth watering goodness every single time I go eat here. You must get extra corn bread muffins as they are simply the best thing hands down like 6:30! And you can never go wrong with the ribs wet or dry, they are amazing. Order whatever, it's good. Won't disappoint and you will go back for more without question. Dreams of cornbread muffins weekly is the story of my life and I'm okay with that!! Just do it!

justin ashton

I only did a star due to we sat by the bar in the open seating and after 10 minutes of not getting acknowledged by anyone and we left. The way to the table our shoes were sticking to the floor and next to the table we were at was a huge puddle of water. Actually there was one person that acknowledged us and it was the manager when we first walked it that said there's open seating at the bar.

Danette Lopez

Yummy, great service and fun atmosphere.

kathy suell

Very good food restaurant is always clean people that work there are always helpful and courteous

April Castaneda

Great food. Good service. Nice atmosphere.

Allana Sida

Best cajun chicken sandwich ever. And the mac n cheese was amazing

Jane Hall

The food was epic if you like bbq then look no more. I really like the fact that they have different sauces to choose from. They could work on expanding their dessert choices.



Tim Walgren

Always good Q

T.C. Richmond

Really hate to post this. Very Very poor service by the staff and Manager twice within two weeks. First visit two weeks ago ordered take out at 1:30pm (expected pick up time told was 1:56pm) arrived at pick up window at 1:55pm. Stood at window until 2.06pm never being greeted or even acknowledged, finally saw the Manager walk by ask "is there anyone working out here" his answer was "sorry we're taking care of orders" and continued walking into kitchen (now 2:12pm) finally a server walks over (2:16pm) grabs the take out food that was sitting at the window when I walked in at 1:55pm and "will this be all for you?" I responded is that my order, as there was a person sitting there waiting when I walked in at 1:55pm and I also said "I don't get a sorry for having to wait 20 plus minutes for my order that was sitting at the window all this time and now your asking me to pay $31 for cold food" and her response was "sorry we're busy taking care of orders, do you want me to make your food again"? I touch the Box it was still warm, I paid she didn't say anything. I arrived home at 2:40pm, I live about 2.5miles from restaurant. Ordered food last night, on time but not right. I will find a different location, sucks because we have been going to this location for over 10 years at least twice a month. Famous Dave's we are not giving up on you. Please take A look at your Chandler restaurant.

Rick Boschen

Potato soup was awesome, the rest of the food was a bit hit or miss, I live in the south so it is hard to impress me with BBQ. :)

Steven Perkins

It was good, just not my type of food that I'm used to.

Shane Phillipps

Bread pudding is always one of my staples. This visit it was so-so. Not enough sauce and it was not warm enough. Mini pig out plate is pretty good.

Peter Powell

Go barbecue great dessert fast service.

Richard Moreno

The food was great and the service as well

April Tetzlaff

Really good BBQ. Have a really good lunch menu that is not expensive

Marisa Morales

Absolutely love eating here. We brought our puppy to their dog friendly patio and she loved the special attention and treats!

Shirrae Mendoza

No reservation! Was Bummed when I called to make a reservation for my sons birthday for 15 people

J Burrington

My favorite place to eat out. Absolutely the best food ever!

Dina Fife

Food was good device was more than a bit slow

Omar Lomeli

Great food and service as always. We love Famous Dave's

Dorothy McLean

The food was good. The service was fast. Great place for families. They were able to accommodate our party of 12.

michael sanchez

Great service even better food

Travis Yazzie

ordered the all-american feast through grub hub last night and i made very small but important preferences.... such as which bbq sauce to include wth our meal, replacing the bbq chicken with pulled pork or brisket. replacing the chicken with pulled pork or brisket is something they always do for my family when i dine in so i dont understand why they couldnt do it for my delivery order. not only did they not follow any one of my instructions, i did not receive ANY bbq sauce for my all american feast, who eats bbq without the sauce?? i did not get any ranch for my smoked wings, even though i requested it in the “special instructions” portion of the order, half of the brisket i received was slices of fat.. who is putting together these orders to go? and who is not including bbq sauce with bbq food?? when i pay $100 for bbq i would expect alot more attention to detail for a delivery order.... not happy here!

laura sullivan

Terrible!! Forgot my side's, ribs had absolutely NO meat on them, everything was just thrown in the box! It was AWFUL! 60$ down the drain!!!

CL Wharton

Nice people / Dry ribs / Small sides Dickies BBQ is more flavorful to me

Jesus Borquez

Good atmosphere, excellent food, excellent service...

Matt Gallisa

Tried going to Buffalo wild wings but was packed. Instead ended up here. We had a group of 5, including three people from China. Server was great and understanding our guest's needs. Good service and BBQ.

Daniel Kana

I'm from Texas so I consider myself a person who knows Great Bar B Q , and this Bar B Q is mediocre. Good atmosphere good Q not the best but for the price it's a good place to eat.

Arthur Baylon

Better service then the bone head braods at Loagan Dave's Que is the best.

Francisco Mendoza

No regrets, always a good choice... I live BBQ and this place has a fair amount of it, good service and quality food... oh did I mention it taste almost like Kansas city's BBQ... Check it out


Dirty and old is a great word to describe this bbq eatery. Chicken was at point of way too pink for consumption. Would not waste my money here again. One star for great cornbread.

Michael Mcnally

I hadn't been to Fresno FD in a while and when I looked at the prices on the menu and had the resulting food, remembered why. I ordered a $19 Brisket w/ 2 sides. I got about 5 slices that were about 6"L.x 2.5"H. x 1/4" thk., which were served on a slab of white bread and overcooked and, if it hadn't been for the sauce - relatively tasteless. Add a really small ball of dry, inexpensive to make mashed potatoes and a half-dozen small florets of undercooked broccoli along with a tiny cornbread muffin, and I was pretty disappointed. Three people with sodas, one beer, tax and tip and I was out almost $80! I can think of half a dozen places where I get more quantity of better food for far less. No wonder the place was almost empty. The service was just okay. No more for me thanks.

C. Weaver

Yall already know

Robert Humphrey

Food was good but it was very loud inside. Other than that was pretty good

stooney davalos

Delicious Food ..

anica apostol

Delicious food!!!!! Will definitely go back. Is pretty pricey around 15-20$ a plate but the portions are very generous. The food has great flavor. I would definitely recommend the catfish. I don't like catfish but theirs has amazing flavor. Five stars

L Schupbach

Way better than "Can't stop smokin" frfr

Ashley Mondragon

My boyfriend and I love the happy hour best rib tips around and not to even mention the nachos delish!!

Charlie Marie and Phil Strait

Why do restaurants think that the customer won't notice when they cut back on food and yet the price remains the same? You no longer get the small bowl of chips for free. The platter only has 2 muffins instead of four. I wonder what else is being cut back? Food still tastes great, but we will go elsewhere from here on out. What a shame.

Tracy Howard

Very good place to eat. I loved the fried pickles and rib tips.

Sean Hicks

Baby back ribs were overcooked -- very tough and dry. Quality of meat has changed for the worse. Sides have gotten smaller and were cold. This restaurant used to be excellent and appears to be cutting costs. Need to review the quality of meals and improve their menu selection.

Ed Hathaway

I know it's a chain restaurant, and it's taboo to say so, but the barbecue is better than most other places (including your favorite ma and pa place back home). And the food is just as good at every FDs, which is uncommon for chain restaurants.

Michael Flemister

The food was excellent. We had the ribs (six bones) and rip tip platters. We had enough to take hope and it taste great reheated. LOVE their rub style and sauces.

kristi johnson

Good barbeque but I'm not a fan of the brussel sprouts. They were fried and mostly burned.

Roger Servin

Always good to dine in or take out.

Mark Seest

Arrived 4:30 pm Monday. Restaurant had customers, but mostly empty. I was seated by the hostess in a booth with a huge rip in it (see picture and menu placement. I chose to sit on the other side. Dressed in business attire, not scroungy looking. Waited exactly 10 minutes. No server. I left for Taste of Asia.

Ana Macias

The "Texas Brisket" tasted like it was marinated in nasty hot dog water. The bathrooms were disgusting.

Aldo Garcia

Thanks Erica, service was excellent, food always better and better ! Erica you did such a great service, excellent choice for my beer always will recommend anyone to stop by, keep up the best service ! You love BBQ this is the place

Angeleigh Manjarrez

Haven’t ate at this place before. However, I deliver with Door Dash and I went inside and instantly appreciated who ever organized the sauce and condiments so perfectly. [Bless your sweet, sweet soul]

Layla Kelis

My friend found a huggeee roach in her food while she was eating....that’s nasty

Michael Mendoza

Love the bbq chicken salad mash patatos ANF macaronie

Ann Turpin Thayer

The Wait staff are friendly and efficient. I ordered the plank smoked salmon with a pineapple sauce over it, it was over-cooked and dry, I didn't think the sauce went with salmon.

Toby Jaramillo

Food was good and service was great.

Sara Ann

Good enough food, but the waitress was pushy and inattentive.

Szabina Steffens

The atmosphere and decor of this restaurant is really unique. If you feel like "going to the South" this is your place to go.

Diana Alberico

Famous Dave's is always great. The bread pudding is awesome. The servers are top notch!

Anajasmine Silva



They have a great happy hour food menu. Food is great tasting. Service was good. Will come back to watch football.

Javier Valles

The waitress was awsome, Jennifer great service....

Mike Whitt

Happy to see they offer Memphis style - dry rub on their ribs. Thats the sign of great bbq...Sauce only compensates. Have been here several times and always great food and service (in the bar)

Stephen Moller

Delicious BBQ and friendly staff, but beware! If you do takeout, your car will smell like delicious BBQ the whole ride home!

Jennifer Brown

Really like their BBQ sauce and cornbread. Like that I can buy them at the store to cook at home. Little expensive,but good food.

Blanca Hudson

Had a great time food was very good. Had the brisket with broccoli and the beans. Awesome. The corn bread made me geel like my tummy was so thankful.

Paul Banda

Pretty good ribs. Atmosphere is nice and the beers are cold

Ken Johnson

There was a piece of wire in our chips that our 7-year-old child nearly swallowed. When brought up to the manager, all he offered was the most insincere "Sorry about the wire". Have generally been dissatisfied with this location for their food and service, but after this experience we will not be coming back.

Alicia Garza

Love those ribs.


Portions and quality have gone down in recent years. We got seated quickly and our server was nice but food wasn't worth the price. There's better BBQ restaurants in other parts of town. Chips were cold and chewy, corn tasted stale, and my friend who got burnt ends had dry, awful ribs. I won't be back here, ever.


The staff there was super friendly. Food was hot and fresh. I will definitely go back there again.

Khalid Ibrahim

The food's taste was dull, unless it's smoked. They highly depend on their five sauces (I'm not a big fan of table sauces, thus the 3 stars). Their famous fries has some potential to be of the best if they season it. Also, they should smoke the chicken like Lucille's Smokehouse Bar-B-Que.

Michael Horne Sr

Placed an online order and restaurant pick up. Food was ready for pick up at the requested time. Great service staff. Online checkout does not allow discount prices for Military. That discount is provided by calling or in person payment.

Doug Hampton

Love the hickory chicken sandwich!

Sandy Harris

Nope. Don’t care for the sauce... ya gotta have great amazing sauce. Or it’s just chicken???

steven fondo

The service is deplorable and the management is worse. I walked out without ordering after waiting an eternity to be addressed by waitstaff. The manager couldn't care less. It's apparent from the lack of response to the many negative reviews that the management team at this location has failed in applying even the very basics of customer service. It should be noted; this particular establishment is located in the heart of "restaurant row" on Blackstone with countless other dining choices within easy walking distance. Please exercise that choice. Go elsewhere. Update: in a fraudulent and ham-handed effort at "problem resolution;" management asked me to contact them without providing their contact information. A complete joke.

John Stacy

Great go to family friendly. Good service. Portions seem to have gotten smaller but prices are still reasonable. Really good BBQ sauces

Vsco Girl

This place was so nice great service! And delicious food thank you for a wonderful meal

John Goulart

Love this place. I think it's better than its competitor down the street. I would it give 5 stars if only they would make their side portions about 20-30% larger. As of right now, the side portions are the same size as that of their major competitor, maybe sightly larger.

Howell Rowe

Good service. Portions were all over the place. Had a tester platter. I forget the name. Good, but a lot of chicken and very little beef. You know? For the pricing don't be cheap.

Lady Warrior 49

The service was very slow. Waitstaff were unattentive and the place wasnt that busy. The shrimp i had wad too spicy to eat and the BBQ chicken sandwich was terrible. The BBQ sauce was nothing but ketchuo with honey and smoke flavor. I was very disappointed.

Quincy Lundy

First let me say the young man at the bar who waited on me was awesome! If it weren't for him, I'd be HIGHLY irritated. He was very kind, respectful and super hardworking. Was by himself serving the whole bar seating area and bar and did the best job possible. He was FLYING!!! Actually all of the staff was very friendly. However, it is ridiculous how long it took before he could get to me to take my order and ridiculous how long it took get get my food. That needs to be fixed. Now, the food was indeed good. Again, kudos to the young man working the bar on July 9, 2019 at around 9:15 till close. I really can't say enough about him. If I were a millionaire, I would have dropped him a $1000 tip, seriously. But I did the best I could

Sherri Lewis

It was nice having Famous Dave's again! The chain has left Southern California. Famous Chelsea was a good hostess! The food was great!

Megan Zuby

Great food. Nice people. Free ice cream for birthdays lol

melissa pimentel

I wish I could give this place ZERO stars. My brothers and I walked in and the host sat us at a table but it was a bit crowded so we asked to sit at a booth. She didn't look to pleased when I turned around to look at her. When she sat us down she basically dropped the menu in front of me mumbling an apology as she walked away. I didn't think anything of it. We are from ny so we have been getting a lot of looks because we are not from here, which is fine. We noticed the waitress kept passing our table serving food, bringing napkins and drinks to other tables. We waited 45 before we decided to walk out. No one greeted us, no one offered water. This place is horrible

Tom Lahey

Great cajun chicken sandwich

T. Smith

Not very good food for the price. Service was not very good. We had to do jumping Jack's and strip on top of table to get any attention.

Richard Lawson

Closest thing to texas BBQ you will get.

Roger Brown

For me...Best hamburger in the valley. Although, a bit expensive.

Sal Juarez

Love happy hour during football

Irene Barberena

Well worth the 1hr drive any day if your in the mood for barbeque

Debra Zackery

The dining was very Good, but the cornbread wasn't hot .

Zombie Zabet

Not. Impressed. My husband only got three pieces of broccoli with his cheeseburger and my French Fries tasted exactly like cardboard and were cold to boot. The serving portions are far too small for what's charged. Definitely over priced for what you get. I'll never come back here.

A6 Invaders

Horrible service. First they wanted us to eat outside with the flies. Second they gave us some horribly made iced tea. Third they gave us dirty silverware. They didn't check on us and they even messed up my order. Great experience...

Kayleia Southard

Seriously good for bbq and low carb friendly. Be aware they bring chips to the table complimentary

Beckett Hearn

Love this place. I go here when I want great BBQ and I don't have time to fix it myself.

Norma A. Alvarez

Food was great as well as the service

John Mc Farland

I thought the food was good and service was quick. A little mix up with the check but nothing horrible. Try the rice

Courtney Ream

The service was fast. The time it took to get our food was fast as well. We ordered to go so it was faster than sitting down. The prices are too high for the quality and portions you get.

Miami Heat

Very good service and good quality food

Sherry Shivley

Always great food and friendly service

Justin M

First time at this location but it was as good as the Tempe marketplace location. Great food and good service. Did not wait for a table on a Saturday night around 6 which was great. They gave my brother in law a nice free ice cream desert since it was his birthday.

Ana Batista

Good customer service! Great food definitely will go again!

Julil Douglas

Love it. I always get the three meat platter.

Mariah Cunningham

It's okay, not amazing but not all that bad. They brought my appetizer out after my and forgot my jalapenos, the other day. A bit disappointed

Shana Johnson

At first I thought it was great. But once the grease settled in I feel sick. The staff was super friendly. Salads were really good, all the meats tho..... To greasy!! Yuck

Percy Bell

I found a piece of plastic in my beans and the manager did not even come to apologise. Plus my ribs were not good very dry. A bad day for FD!0

Rebecca Campbell

Decent bbq. Good happy hour specials. Server was awesome! Natasha rocks!

Brian R N Grijalva

Lov this place food is scrumptious I give 5 stars for food 4 for service kinda slow but food is awesome so whatever lol

Carlos Barkley

Everything in here is delicious, I specially love the BBQ Ribs and all the sauces they have. Great to eat with friend and family.

Jamey Flatt

They changed the menu by taking items away we loved and bringing in new items. BBQ is great. Try the Brunt Buntz

ivan williams

One of the best Barbecue in the metro area...

SequoiaElisabeth .

Best BBQ I have had in Denver! Well worth the visit.

Charles Zimmerman

The barbecue was delicious and plentiful! The only drawback with our server, who rarely visited our table.

Sasha Talk

The wait was a little long but not over the time they told us to expect. So aside from that we loved it. We have 4 children and it was very family friendly. Great food and something for us all to enjoy. We will definitely be back.

jackie zino

Famous Dave's Bar-b-Que is so delicious! Ribs are very moist, the chicken is seasoned to perfection, pull pork sandwich was also good too. The only issues I had was the Cole slaw. Cole slaw was missing something. The cornbread was "DRY" lol. I love my cornbread to be moist like pound cake.

Layla Foley

One of my favorite locations for delicious BBQ. i wish there were more places like this around town. looking forward to coming back with my coworkers. it has a nice atmosphere. feels similar to a restaurant in philadelphia that i enjoyed visiting.

Michael T Boyd

The food is good, but way overpriced for what you get.

Lynnette Martinez

Great restaurant! Good food and service!

ahave brown

Amazing food. Last time at Dave's was Kansas back in 2013...still super good!

Danil Esenin

I've tried Texas beef brisket bowl. So delicious and we'll balanced. Bravo Chef! I which you guys have bar menu too.

Cuello Rojo

Happy Hour for great food, prices and service. Going back for sure!!!

theresa wesley

Service was great. Food was seriously salty

Tiana Mills-Sitowski

Food really good; Service, not so much

J. R. Wilson

Hard to beat. Great menu. Great food. Good prices. Good employees. A go to place for me.

Christopher Merren

The mashed potatoes a bit bland, but overall good BBQ place. Good cheese curds.

Tucker Schweigert

Definitely one of my favorite places. try the corn bread

Joetip Sephton

Great food...bad service! Our waitress was always on break. Slow service and she smelled strong like cigarettes!!

Donald Floyd

Great food.....great service....awesome place

Doris Jackson

Great BBQ. Fast, friendly service. Never had a bad experience there.

Maria Neely

Love the food and service! Great happy hour all day Sunday!

Heath Winiesdorffer

My favorite BBQ with fast friendly staff.

Judi Waite

First time I have ordered take-out, the sides were tasty, the rib tips were very dry & tough.

boss tycoon

If you order online and it says “ready at 6p”, arrive at 6:30 and if your lucky you’ll only wait another 15-20 minutes.

LaShonda Smith

It was just OK today. The meant was a little on the dry side. Customer service was great.

Huvants Tuneau

Best value lunch specials, lots of meat and side choices. Great staff.

Chanhee Shin

Not bad~ not the best but it's still filling and good.

Jason Bourland

Good food, quick service for a Sunday lunch.

Mo Ste

Food wasn't good. Brisket was dry .

Fabiola Caballero

The service is amazing our waiter was Mando and he was definitely the best! Very kind very helpful!


The food was good. However I gave it only 3 stars. They ran out of their chips they usually give while waiting for your meal. However, I was disappointed with the side of fries chosen for the meal. As you can see on the picture this is prior to eating them. I was quite shocked. The side of Mac n cheese is an additional $2 it's considered an upgrade of my side for the 2nd entree ordered. I will have to go elsewhere for ribs. Not all that here.

D Marts

This is a no dress code sit down dinner. Whatever. Family friendly with lots of stuff on the walls to entertain youngins. Roll of paper towels on the table for finger eating. Had the Dave's Famous burger. They only med or more cook their meat patties but it was still tender and had some juice. Portions are small. A caddy of sauces is on the table for taste. The burger seemed 3/4 size and I inhaled mine in about 5 minutes. Even the tap beer is in portioned down glasses. My side was the bland coleslaw. The very personal waitress offered to bring me a second side of warm cinnamon apples which turned out to be the best part of dinner. Service is a standout here. Fast and accommodating. Watch out for the check. The price on the receipt is out of whack with the menu but like fast food drive through the bottom total is correct.

Johnny Perry

Food was ok service was ok portions were average for the price I expected more it didn't look like the pictures on the menu chicken breast was cut in half and the rib tips were just that not like the pictures on the menu

GeorgeAnna Bell

Food was great service was excellent.

Nick Duncan

Really good bbq and bomb sides! This coming from a texas man!


I had an order to go which was a platter the phone service when I called to make the order they put me on hold for almost 10 minutes so I hung up and had to call back again and it was at the beginning of the day at 11 a.m. in the morning so I was not happy about that but the platter itself was good

Sharon Grow

Great food & great service from Erica.

Miguel Orbe

super friendly waitress and well done food .

Noel Mendivil

Ask for Wilbur's revenge bbq sauce

Rae Hopf

Always good food and staff always friendly

Nice, very informal atmosphere. Tasty food.

Miranda Twomey

Worst restaurant experience I’ve ever had. Sat in bar seating as there was about a 45min wait for dining. Bar tender was our waitress, I guess. Didn’t get our food for 1 hour. Sandwiches were cold and another server brought the food out to us. I received the wrong side and told the guy this. Never received the right side. Couldn’t even eat my meal. Never got checked on or drink refills. Ended up having to ask for help to get the check, stating we needed to talk to someone about our service. Ended up getting one entire free... should have been whole bill. Do not recommend nor will I go back! Terrible service and food.

J. Mitchell

Nice place, nice service and clean. Had the full rack St. Louis Ribs was about a 7

Mzzmonique Adams

My son and I came in for lunch with no wait! The food is always hot but ithis time it wasn’t as tasty. I didn’t complain but later I because nauseous and mentioned to my son he had the same symptoms. I won’t be back :(

tanaka tatsuki

My favorite BBQ in CHD!!

Sidonio Easbrae

Best ribs in my own opinion

Tammie M

Sign up for their email promotions, I'm sure glad I did because we recently took some visiting family members there for dinner and the promo offered at the time saved us some $$. Delicious meal, great service.

Shannon Stanley

Busy location but more than worth it. Located at Chandler fashion square tins of other stores and good parking

Michael Schultz

The food was good. The restaurant itself was somewhat dingy and not entirely clean. Service was mediocre.

alisa kirk

Service was amazing! Mando was so great, even with our party of 11! He really made our experience even better. The food was great! We all left very happy!

Anton Pleasant

Good food and grate ser9

Debbie Barnett

Love there food. Easy parking too

Alison Gutierrez

I love the food and the staff is very friendly

Chris Lillie

Great lunch menu. Fast friendly service.

Abdul Bailey

Famous Dave is good. The menu has a variety of main and side dishes to choose from. I enjoyed the breath of BBQ sauces they offer on the table. Hot, Sweet, Mustard Base, etc... a lot of choices. The cornbread muffins are very tasty.

Rick and Karen M

Service was great! Lost 1 star for not having a liquor license because they changed ownership before they had one so no beer with my BBQ. Lost another star because the chunks of TX Beef Brisket on my nachos were ALL fat. The nachos were good other than the meet. Next time I'll be sure to ask for lean cuts.

Robert Orndoff

great food good service


Eh...its a chain lol. Expect safe and savory junk food and decent mixed drinks, not good bbq.

Stephen Griffin

Food was good, but not much of it. Still a decent value for price.

Pila Pila

Pretty good, but had a little mis understanding with one of the workers. Totally my fault though but amazing place nice smiles

Kristen Franklin

Outstanding drinks & food in my opinion.

Heather Stephenson-Hicks

Service was a bit on the slow side. Food was good.

MJ Pnc

Service was great, friendly place, bartender (female) on Monday afternoon is very nice. Sadly & unfortunately the BBQ is not good and nothing in this place is remotely TX BBQ. I suppose this is a chain. Sauce is more like ketchup and pork and beef were dry and without any smoke to it. Briskets slices were literally so small in length, I can’t for the life of me figure out how they came off a true brisket??? Oh well, the search continues...

Dustin Stapp

Great place. Decent service. Not super clean...

James Aderman

I enjoy eating at Dave's. This restaurant was the best of those I've visited. The food was delicious. It was served promptly by a wait staff that cared about their customers. This Dave's has a bar.

Jeffrey Rayner

For less quid, just share about three of Burnt End appetizers, at least for lunch. Pedestrian sauces, much better to just buy bottles at grocery store. Combo meals also "splitable" for a lunch. Nice atmosphere, good service. Food is the weakest point, as it is a little too "chain-like". Check it out if you have no alternatives. Try the Cat Fingers for a nice change of pace.


Service was amazing, food was hot, delicious, and heartburn free. 3 essentials to me. Bartender was friendly, presentable, and knowledgeable of the food menu. Can't wait to return.

April Hollar

Always love their food. Hot, tasty, flavorful and fresh.

Andre J Wills

LOVED It The Food is GREAT ❤

Monique Lovato

Not sure if it was the CBD oil but the food was the best its ever been.

911eVoX .

The BBQ was just okay. It was cooked well but the flavor was not great. Probably won't be back

Kristina Fox

Not great options for kids, there is nothing beef besides a pre-frozen burger for the kids. The beef was

Adrianna Vargas

Good food. Only Complaint is noise level there was a big party when we went they were really loud couldn’t have a conversation.

Nelson Hernandez

Great happy hour. Its affordable and delicious! You can't beat $3 well drinks.

Shari Tucker

Food and service was decent, menu's were filthy.

Mark Dalton

I have a tendency to automatically think less of franchises when it comes to eating establishments. It's an unfair bias, for sure, but it is what it is. With that said, I have frequented Famous Dave's on a number of occasions and have not once been disappointed in the food. Dave's has become my go-to BBQ joint when I need BBQ in a pinch. Keep in mind, I grew up near Memphis, so I am pretty particular. Sure, I can drive out of the way to a stand-alone BBQ and get more authentic Q, but sometimes you just want it quick, and you want it with six cornbread muffins. Dave's fits the bill. The ingredients are high quality, the helpings heaving. Their meats, whether it's brisket, pulled pork, chicken, etc. are always tender and delicious.

Lina Arias

They have the best chicken n ribs n dnt for get their bbq sause

Tay tay

I’ve seen a video on social media of a humongous roach inside someone’s food. It was so big there’s no way the cooks didn’t see it !

Bernhard Sayer

Came to visit a friend here in Arizona and he wanted to come to Famous Dave's. As soon as we arrived we where greeted and seated. Our waiter (Evan) was fast and getting our drink orders and asked us if we were ready to order. It took us about 10 minutes to order because I was not sure what to order but we went ahead and ordered the Davsample platter and a big Caesar salad.

Bethany Harlan

There food is really awesome & delicious!!

Reina Medrano

All American feast is my favorite. Love the service.

Manuel Declay

The staff has EXCELLENT customer service! I ordered a feast for 2 for the 4th of July and although they were super busy (understandable because the holiday.) the staff were very accommodating and friendly. Laney and Griselda especially! They were patient and kind! Very great location!

tim wood

Our server was slow she got part of the order wrong was to late to complain so we just ate what they brought and left

Karla Leon

The food was great and we had the best service by Ashley C

Vicki Merz

Prices were high for what you got. Food was okay. Don't think I'd go back

Dragos C

Used to be my favorite place when visiting. Idk, but this time something slipped. Can't really put my finger on it.

Pauline Walkinson

A very delicious place to eat with friends or family on a friday night! Excellent service and awesome flavor

Erica San

I would give them Five Stars but the service is holding them back. The food was really good but the service wasn’t. They messed up my order and never got me the knife I asked for TWICE! Also the wait was really long but other than that it was ok.

Elizabeth Hayes

Even though we came late the food was great and the service was wonderful. Lily was so nice

Glen Wacker

I had excellent food here last time not so much they did make it right but by the time I got my food everyone else was done eating

Juan Herrera

This place is always amazing. Great prices for the food quality

Justin Marrs

Yes and I'm in love with the waitress... Hey baby I wear glasses too! I'm in love.

Isidro M

Good food and good costumer service

Annette Oglevee

Service was excellent and food was good. I would recommend less salt on broccoli. I tasted more salt than the broccoli flavor

Pam Cure

Great place to eat very friendly place and people

Kim Storie

The cooks are excellent as well as the servers. Definitely worth your money and time to visit

Christopher Peterson

Food is decent but the service is terrible. Takes forever to get service the last few times we have gone. One time we walked in and waited at the front for a few minutes and no one came to seat us. Also saw no servers on the floor and the customers seated we're looking for them too! Good food but definitely need to address their poor service especially during lunch when people have less time.


Great selection of sauces and smoked meats. To me it is definitely one of the best chain BBQ places.

Rick Kemp


Kenny Edwards

Great service/BBQ/bar/sauces/delivery speed for a great price. Consistent, it’s never bad for any area. That’s the most important thing restaurants struggle to achieve and this specific Famous Dave’s passes in flying colors for maintaining a stellar eating experience.

cheryl tisland

Awesome food and great service. Thank you for hosting our Chamber mixer!

Deanna Edwards

I love the food here! Also the staff are always very nice and professional.

Roger Thomas

The food was OK but not great except for the Wilbur Beans which were fantastic. While the staff was friendly the service was slow. It was easy to see why they weren't busy. I'm not a frequent visitor to Famous Dave's so I can't compare to other locations.

Steven Brown

Food is good waiters/waitresses were

The Sun Is Shining Behind The Cloud

Scrumptious!⭐Awsome Customer Service!⭐ Cool & Comfortable Ambiance!⭐ Entertaining Decor!⭐ ABSOLUTELY AMAZING RIBS

David Martinez

Food is always good along with service.


Actually some if the best wings I've ever had

Adrienne Manuel

Pretty good food. Nice atmosphere

Jackie Gaines

The food and service is great but why the hell is it always so cold! I have been here 3 times this month and had to go find a winter hoodie in my car mid-meal. Everyone is freezing❄!One lady has a coat on in damn 90 degree summer outside. Are they trying to make us all choose take out?

Michael Dean

Bbq was pretty good. Bartender took care of me, good service.

Tofer Breuer

Food is good, but they are adding a 50 cent surcharge to everything you order. My partner noticed it and was told by the waitress that she didnt notice the discrepancy between the menu and the ticket. My partner told her she wasnt paying the dollar difference, which forces the waitress to pause and re-ring it up. If this has been the practice for a while, corporate is making some big bucks off of ignorance from the public.

Marquita Bethea

I'm but the Fries are CRAZY GOOD.

Brittny Fleming

The food was simply amazing

David a

Delicious BBQ. Our favorite BBQ restaurant.

Jameson Rivers

Famous Dave's is one of my favorite bbq spots in the Phoenix area. If you are looking for some properly smoked bbq, you should go check out Famous Dave's.


Waitress was really bad there was bad service but overall food was delicious

Heather Todisco-O'Neal

We used to love FD. But I was sooo disappointed. Service was horrible! We were ignored!!! My bacon burger was good, but my sides...mashed potatoes were cold and flavorless :( Husband had catfish. Catfish was good but portion was tiny...especially for $16!!! Manager was nice and took care of the sides. But our waiter was awful.

Scott Clobes

Service was good, the food was alright. A bit pricey though. The server brought me a dirty plate that wasn't properly cleaned so that had to go back.

Annette Snyder

Other BBQ’s around but Dave’s is the place to go, even if you have to drive a bit. Delicious food, great service, fun atmosphere. Spacious seating.

Adam Pizarro

Best bbq good price

Roy Barrett

Excellent service. Polite and helpful staff.Good prices for quality of food served.Highly recommended to everyone.

LoveU More

Fantastic food and even more fantastic staff!! The employees there were more than happy to take care of our Fresno State graduation celebration!!

Cortney Nicole

I actually love Famous Dave's. There St. Louis Style rids are the bomb! 5 stars for great food and service.

T Dubz

Food took an hour to make. Prices are outrageous. The full meals are within 2 dollars of the appetizers. DO NOT ORDER CHICKEN. It's cooked terribly making it rubbery and tough even feels uncomfortable from taking a bite. I had really high hopes for this place but that was just awful gotta say they can make a good side salad though plenty of dressing and croutons etc but charging an extra 2$ to change your basic side to aparrently an upgrade... A salad

Bryan Mendoza

Good food but was packed for specific days

Bettye Davis

Great food and service! No surprise there. Very prompt, everything was clean and we'll timed!!


Got 2 tiny slivers of brisket and was told it was a portion. Waste of money and waiter just shrugged his shoulders.

Luis G

allways liked. except least time i don't know why. but i don't liked.

Sean Nelson

It's so good you don't even need to add sauce.

Alexandru Durko

I always enjoy the devils spit burger from Famous Daves. My wife loves the cornbread. Service can be spotty sometimes but it's worth checking out, especially if you've never had it before.

Dustin Kilmer

Our food was great but our server diffinatly made the night for us. Her name is Jennifer, and we just met tonight but, shes fabulous. She was so funny and made us laugh. She was a much needed distraction to the stress of the day. When we left she said have a good night and see you tomorrow." I seriously want to go back tomorrow just to show her ! Haha.

Brian King

The meat was tender and tasty, there were so many varieties of barbecue sauces to try from sweet too spicy, and a plethora of side orders to choose from.

lamar Gibson

Great food and wonderful service

Phyllis And Jonathan English

Dinner salads were good but the rack of ribs were definitely overcooked sooooo dry even the bb sauce didn't help lots of water had to be taken in it'll be awhile til we try again

Carmen Shaddon

A perfect night out! My daughter's brought me here on fathers day. Even with 50 people waiting ahead of us still we only waited half an hour. Great food! Very nice!

Dusty m

Great BBQ and sides. If you go with a group you can split a FEAST

Patrick Williams

Famous Valarie was AWESOME!!! We ordered take out for 20 people, she helped keep us on budget, the food was ready when we got there and it tasted DELICIOUS!!! P.S. No leftovers here
