I emailed Dave before booking to requested a few items I really wanted to try such as the Gargiulo Burger from Man v Food and Dave was really helpful and happy to accommodate. Dave also managed to match us up with a 3 other guests so that we could spread the cost as the private tour was a bit expensive... More

Took my girlfriend on one of these awesome adventures, and let me tell you... It's a real adventure! I am a food guy, and I have lived in NY for 13 years... I had not been to even ONE of the spots Dave took us to. Honestly, I pride myself on knowing great out of the way eateries and this... More

My boyfriend surprised me with the best "day date" ever yesterday! If you haven't yet heard of Famous Fat Daves eating tour yet, then google it right now! Dave picked us up in this amazing old school checker cab, straight out of an nyc classic movie. Right off the bat I was super excited. Dave was awesome! The first five... More

If you're reading this, you should book it (And early because the tours get booked up far in advance)! Lots of great food from interesting places outside of Manhattan island and the history of each place which is incredibly interesting - I was on the tour for 5 hours but it felt like so much less because I was never...

Incredible combination of humour, history, ghost busters facts, good banter and of course ... awesome food! Dave is an awesome dude to hang out with, and he pretty much tailored the tour around what we felt like eating. Took us to some great places that the average tourist probably wouldn't head to, little mom and pop stores in the middle... More

Dave's food tour is incredible and took us to some fantastic eateries you just wouldn't find without him. We let Dave choose where we ate, and just asked to sample lots of different types of food, which we did! There were so many highlights I'm not sure I can pick a favourite but Steve's Authentic Key Lime pie was the... More

Myself and two friends had a fantastic 5hrs with Dave - trying the very best Brooklyn had to offer across different cuisines and neighbourhoods. No exaggeration to say that we would never have found the hidden gems Dave showed us - it's one of the highlights of my round the world trip and I'd recommend it to anyone going to... More

This tour really is something special! Dave took us to places in Brooklyn we would never have gone, and gave us information on the areas/food places that were profound and very interesting, he enabled us to get a proper "feel" Brooklyn. Conversation with him was fun and relaxed, never a moment that was not comfortable- he is truly welcoming, sometimes... More

We joined another group yesterday to tour NYC eating and getting a little history and more eating. Wow! Dave took us to a bunch of little family run places where the food was simple and absolutely delicious. The Key Lime Pie in Brooklyn may be the best thing I've eaten in my life and I would never have found it... More

I found Dave's tour on trip advisor, and after reading the reviews was excited to try it out. I was fortunate enough to be able to get a last minute booking for two. We had a fantastic experience! Dave took us to several authentic NY eateries; the food was outstanding as was Dave's historical knowledge. I highly recommend the tour!... More
