This was our 2nd visit to this chain, the first time at the Chandler branch, the restaurant was easy to find and once again it was awesome. We started with the now traditional Burnt ends and then we ordered our mains. For me it had to be the larger ribs and brisket with Mac and cheese and fries and my... More

It may be Famous Dave's, but besides the great BBQ (and the mac 'n' cheese) the reason we keep coming back is Famous Erica! My sister and I lived out of state, but started coming here when visiting our parents and we first encountered Erica - personable, great sense of humor, attentive without being intrusive, excellent menu knowledge and recommendations....

During our long road trip driving West, we had been trying unsatisfactorily to satisfy our taste for great barbecue. After three or four attempts, and especially in Texas!, we were giving up for this trip, and then, we saw the sign, Famous Dave's! We didn't have to wait until we got back home. We just happen to love our barbecue... More

Friendly staff. The pulled pork was really good. Everything I had was flavorful. The burnt ends were not as good as I'd hoped they were pretty tough. Pickles were surprisingly tasty. If we are even back in Chandler we will return.

went in for a "good" bbq dinner. our server cisco was lost and gave bad service. the manager (big n balding) was rude and seemed overwhelmed in the place. the food was pretty bland, but the pickles were great. I would pass.

Had three of their smoked offerings and enjoyed them all. A usual my favorite was the brisket. Good service and enjoyable surroundings.

I've been to many "Famous Dave's" all around the country and found that this one is the best! The ribs were huge and meaty! Service was great and the manager came over to check on us to make sure we were having a good experience! I highly recommend you come to Dave's!

We have eaten there many times. Great bar BQ. Tasty, well prepared and generous portions. Excellent place to eat after an after noon movie or shopping. Also just a good restaurant to make a special trip to.

Wife and I usually order the feast for two. Comes with hearty portion of ribs, and choice of meats. We get the brisket and pulled pork. included are sides of good cole slaw, a mound of thick french fries, spicy hearty beans with sausage in them, corn cobbettes, and corn muffins. We take home at least half for another couple... More
