My nephew wanted to go there for the ribs (which he said were great) - I had the chicken nachos which were huge, and good enough. Everyone else seemed happy with the food. The service was quite good, however, for all the hype I've heard about "Famous Dave's" I was under impressed.

I have bought their sauces and pickles for years before I even knew there was a restaurant. When I was in Yuma I found one of their places. So here goes, walk in the door and it just felt dirty.

The building & Décor were great & I was looking forward to some good brisket - when I saw the Brisket Basket on the menu, I ordered it. When the order arrived, I was appalled. The presentation was the... More

This was a nice sized restaurant and bar. Located off highway 8 in Yuma. The size of the order was substantial we even had left overs. The menu has much to offer of course mostly barbecue.

We stopped for a quick dinner as we posts up for the night in Yuma before heading into San Diego. Our son was not feeling well at all and didn't eat much at all. Our server, Jovan went above and beyond to make sure our son was comfortable. He brought him ginger ale, a small bowl of fries, and even... More

This place has the best barbeque I have had in a long time. I got the combo for 1 and had 3 meals from it which came in handy since I am here for a few weeks. The sweet corn bread muffins are awesome.
