Famous Dave's - Mesa
I have eaten at the original location in Wisconsin, and well as others in Minnesota. Based on those experiences, Famous Dave’s was one of my favorite bbq restaurants. I was disappointed with the food quality at the Mesa location, as it didn’t live up to my expectations. I do not plan to return.
Wonderful time and great service and food. Thanks famous Dave’s! I could of eaten a million of the corn muffins lol
When it comes to baby back ribs, no one does it better.
The food was horrible. I had a hamburger and the top of the bun was so hard I had to take it off and eat my burger with a fork and knife. My friend had the “famous” ribs and the were so tough he had to saw through them with a knife to get them apart. Also, the ribs seemed like they had been cooked several days beforehand. I’ll never go back. But the service was good!
first time at famous Dave's. This was a work lunch and all my team enjoyed the meal. You have a good lunch menu
Scheduled a reservation with OpenTable and when we got there the table was not ready had to wait 30 minutes to sit outside when reservation was for inside
Famous Dave's hasn't changed its formula in years -- and that's good! One can depend on a very fine plate of ribs or pulled pork or brisket or whatever. Good bar, too. Fine for groups or for couples, although some shops can be a little noisy. Great food and great fun. We'll definitely be back.
Arrived 10 minutes before reservation (party of 6) and waited 25 minutes before being seated. Ordered food and waited almost a full hour before it arrived. Salmon was awful and dried out, hamburger was mediocre and Brussels sprouts were burned. Brisket sandwich was very good and apple crisp dessert was good. The manager did significantly reduce our bill thankfully but it was a frustrating evening with not fabulous food.
I Love Famous Dave's. Always a fun family experience Great food food price & we always have some to take home.
Reserved a table, got there, they had no idea about my reserved table. Had to wait 20 minutes to be seated but when I went to the restroom to wash my hands I saw about 10 tables open. Some where dirty but most were not. Service was just as bad. Checked on only once during our hour stay. Some other server finally came to take our payment after he had seen us sitting there for about fifteen minutes waiting to leave. Won't go back to that place again.
Waited over one and a half hours for standard order. Screaming kids running around, noise level close to unbearable. We will never go again.
Great food and service. We have been here many times, and always enjoy ourselves.
We went for my fiancee's birthday and it was wonderful. It was New Years Eve and it wasn't even crowded. It made for a nice evening. The server was helpful and patient with my annoying stepfather who changed his mind a bunch. The food was prepared well and made me want to finish something that was too big for me to eat. That never happens for me. I eat small portions so that should say something about the food. Good job, chefs! Overall, it's a great place to go for family gatherings, date night, lunch, or any occasion.
Hostess was very kind. Our server was not very helpful/good, our food was cold, reaturant wasn’t very busy, but our food took long to arrive after placing order. Will not be returning.
I was visiting my family in Phoenix and we were looking for a fun place for lunch. Famous Dave's fit the bill. Great food, great atmosphere, overall a very fun outing. Would definitely visit here again.
Met family for after Christmas meal, waitress tried to put a group of 8 next to the kitchen, in an almost empty restaurant. I requested to move, she moved us two rows back to restroom entrance, I moved us into room beyond fireplace.
Meal went great, new waiter was pleasant and accurate. However after he took care of our check, we never saw him again. Clearing of table stopped, so we moved plates to a clean table.
Volume was too high on music, yes I'm 60 but I paid the bill.
Not recommended for groups, as there was no place to get away from the music.
Love the food, adequate staff, friendly.
Thank you for this review opportunity.
The food was great and we really enjoyed the singing manager. It was a lot of fun!
Food was GREAT as always. Had to keep stopping other servers as ours would disappear
Sever took LOTS of time getting to us to start, and in between visits... Otherwise great.
