Do you like hanging out with a good friend (yes)? Do you enjoy delicious food (of course)? Do you have a desire to find the best, unsung restaurants in NYC, but don't know where to start (naturally, or I wouldn't be reading this)? Easy solution - take the Famous Fat Dave tour! He is a great, personable guy, someone who... More

Oh wow. How fun! We visited New York last year and weren't able to secure a reservation with Dave. This year as soon as we booked our trip, I emailed Dave. We love doing food tours in all the cities we visit. Its a great way to get to know a city and its culture. This was the first one... More

We enjoyed a 4 hour tour with Dave while in New York and it was fantastic. I wasn't sure exactly what to expect but friends had done it before and said it was great. We felt like VIP's as Dave escorted us around and took us straight to the front at all the restaurants. You get to experience real parts... More

We have visited New York three times and this was far and away the best thing we have done there. It was a great experience and it wasn't just the food! Dave really knows how to sniff out the best, most interesting and varied eateries in the city and insists on the best only. He doesn't take his recommendations of... More

We had an absolute ball on our Food Tour. Dave was a wealth of information and showed us places and imparted history we would never have been able to see or know about. Food choices were amazing, we toured both Queens and Brooklyn and couldn't find fault in anything. Dave is a really cool guy who was friendly and eager... More

We were all excited about meeting Dave and doing his tour on our first trip to New York. It did not disappoint. Dave is a true legend of New York food. We visited parts of NY that we would never have seen, ate food from places we would never have known existed, and learned so much about The real NY.... More

Was looking forward to this part of my NYC trip and wasn't dissapointed. Dave has got this tour down pat, from getting you just the right amount of food to eat and when to eat it. Balance this with his knowledge of New York and his passion for taking you to places you almost certainly wouldn't go to as a... More

We had read all of the reviews on trip advisor so we went in with high expectations. After a great walk through soho we met Sweetness (the cab) and Dave and immediately knew we were going to have a great time. Dave was not only knowledgable of everything! New York he was down to earth and funny. He made us... More

Honestly, the best part of my trip. This was absolutely amazing, such a unique, exciting and must-do experience for any food lover or culture lover - Dave is such a great guy, we instantly bonded with him like an old friend and he just took us to the BEST places, all personalised for us. He knew I liked pizza and... More

Today we spent four and a half hours with Dave driving us around Brooklyn to taste some of the best food we have ever eaten. We made about 9 different stops and tried everything from hot dogs to pizza, sandwiches to cheesecake. Not only was the food mouth-watering but Dave was informative and the business owners/staff that we did get... More
