Went to Dave's for my Mom's birthday. The greeter opened the door for us and welcomed us. The server was pleasant and efficient. The food was good, solid BBQ. There are better BBQ places in the Phoenix metro, but none is as consistently good as Famous Dave's. One tip is to go between 11am and 5pm any day of the... More

We went for dinner and had the feast for two...which would have fed 3 or 4. The best part was the St. Louis style ribs. They were simply divine. Hope to be back one day.
