Famous Dave's - Irvine
Been going to Famous Daves for years but this was our first time at this location. Loved that we didn't have to wait in line and service was amazing!
This was my first visit to a Famous Dave's. Great first impression. We shared an appetizer of burnt ends, and then I had a side salad with a tasty honey mustard. My entree was a three-meat platter with rib ends, a hot link and pulled port, plus sides of beans and a corn muffin. Outstanding all around. Our server was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable about the menu, giving us his recommendations. A fun evening.
There was plenty of food and it was good and was served very quickly!
The best thing about our dining experience at Famous Dave's was the service provided by our server. I wish I could remember his name but he made sure our needs were met as customers. He would always come at the right time to refill our drinks and offer anything we needed. We enjoyed the potato chips served as an appetizer and he offered us another plate after I said how good they were. He even provided my husband a to go soda cup when we were leaving. The amount of food on the 3-meat plate was plenty for the two of us and the value was great. The corn bread and the roasted Brussels sprouts were good. We got to use a 20% coupon which was huge. This was my second time at this location and it was definitely better than the first. Glad we gave it another try. Will definitely go back.
Delicious food! The chopped pork was excellent. It was just like something this southerner would find back home.
The food was marginal at best. The seats are very uncomfortable as well. The only real positive was the service. Our server was very attentive.
The meat was really fatty and hard to eat.
Friendly and attentive service. Food came fast. Nice place to feast on BBQ and chill with family/friends. Parking can take a while to find during peak hours.
Almost 1/2 of the meals were served incorrectly. 4 of 9.
Food is always good. Burnt ends are amazing. We love that we can rely on this restaurant for a good meal.
Service was exceptional. Food was superb. Dessert well worth the stomach ache. Huge portions. Fantastic. Fun for entire family.
The BEST BBQ! And the best service! The staff is always interactive and personable--not that fake stuff. They remember customers and are very kind. I do wish the music was not so loud.
Food was great, We arrived early and they where ready for us. Waited all of 5 min.
Famous Daves never disappoints if you’re looking for good bbq! A basket of fresh potato chips is the perfect starter to every meal. The delicious St. Louis ribs with a variety of tasty side dish options and cornbread seems to be our go-to choice; bbq beans and the jalapeño mac n cheese are always our favorite side dishes. It’s a real bonus that the generous dinner portions are large enough to be shared. This location is small and very casual, and can be rather loud, which is my only real complaint other than the horrible parking situation.
It isn't bad , it is just poor quality, if you are in rush and want to quickly grab food, sure go ahead otherwise skip
Great for families and groups!
Excellent BBQ Restaurant
I ordered brisket and it had a lot of fat. They replaced it with another sandwich that also had too much gristle and fat.
My daughter ordered chili and it arrived cold.
Last time we ate there it was excellent. This time ruined us we won’t go back.
Had a great time. Been down at the one in Long Beach also. Service was great, food was geat.
Will e back soon.
