Been here a few times while on buisness. The food has been always good, and hot. The wait staff is really friendly, and always helpful.

Stopped in for lunch yesterday and ate a new Burnt Ends Brisket BBQ sandwich ... Mmmmm Good ... add a little of Wilbur's XXX and Devil's Spit sauce to kick it up a few notches ... Just a mouth watering sandwich!!!

Driving between San Diego and Tucson quite frequently, we have often stopped for a quick meal in Yuma. This is the first place we will go back to. We have enjoyed Famous Dave's for many years-when there only was the original place in Wisconsin. We have found it to be consistently good everywhere. We ordered a special for two which... More

Dissapointed with ribs, very dry and overdone. The sauces were GREAT!!! The burnt ends were awesome, and the beef brisket was good. Service was excellent. I would of given them 5 stars if the ribs were overdone. Definately not fall off the bone

While working in Yuma for a couple of months, Famous Dave's became one of my favourite restaurants. The service was always friendly, attentive and fast. The food was tasty and was dependably good. Perhaps not the finest BBQ in the world, but I was happy with everything. Their range of sauces are good. Devils Spit was my favourite. I tried... More

We travelled to Yuma on a "working" trip but treated ourselves each evening to dinner out throughout the week. Famous Dave's proved to be our favorite. Since this was our first visit, we received the "royal" treatment w/our waitress explaining and having us taste test each of their bbq sauces. A the end of our meal we also were treated... More

This is typical BBQ food. They have lots of bbq and non BBQ items on the menu. We had the Georgia Chopped Pork Classic dinner. Came in a nice presentation picnic type container. The pork was dry and too crisp on the edges and a bit chewy, not to mention dry. It was on top of Texas Toast which made... More

Went back again and ordered the platter for 2. It was absolutely huge.. The brisket was very good, the chicken was rather tough, the ribs were good. Coleslaw had horseradish in it-- absolutely too much, yucky! I have to say Roxy (our waitress) was absolutely outstanding considering she had a few larger parties.
