My wife and I joined 3 others (strangers at first, friends at the end) for a driving tour. We wanted to get off Manhattan, and boy did we ever! Started off with a little taste of genuine NYC meat (lower Manhattan), before heading off on the best tour of anywhere I've been in a long, long time. The format was... More

I came back from NY a month ago and I'm still dreaming about the burnt ends I had on Dave's tour. It was life-changing BBQ. I didn't know meat could melt in your mouth that way. We did 10 places in 5 hours and I lost count of how many food orgasms I had. I definitely recommend seconds, when he... More

This tour was unlike anything else I have done in NYC. Dave is a great guy who knows his stuff when it comes to food - he takes you to all these great places that you wouldn't stumble across on your own. Not only does he know where to find this amazing food, he also knows the history of each... More

A trip to the Bronx and Queens and to see some surfer dudes and a really nice beach area was definitely a great way to spend few hours. Delicious array of food presented - really traditional American/Italian/Jewish - somewhat heavier for the experience but well worth the history education. Loved it and otherwise wud have thought NYC just another big... More

There is no way we would have been able to visit the boroughs without Dave and with Dave at the helm of our van, we were transported to an introduction of the history and picadillos of the neighborhoods and the FOOD! Dave is one of those unique individuals who embraces life and holds nothing back from sharing the joys of... More

A famous fat dave tour is great. The food is fantastic However Dave's personality and knowledge of the city truly make the trip. Dave told our group this is not a foodee tour...this is a tour of places where new yorkers eat.next time I go to NYC I'll book with dave again

I don't really do reviews but I have to let people know how great this guy is!! Firstly I'm going to start off by telling you about me and how I ended up booking Dave to take me on my gastronomic adventure.

Sorry for the delay with this; we took Daves tour back in December 2014 in the White checker .... Brilliant! Over to Brooklyn; Coney Island; at least half a dozen restaurants visited..... Was just brilliant; especially Dave! Full of knowledge; we will return :))
