I like the lunch menu two choices of meat, a wide variety from fish to chicken to ribs of all types. Included are choices of items such as coleslaw, green beans, or broccoli. I found the waitress staff pleasant and a good value for the money. Clean family style eatery.

We love BBQ! Found that Dave's BBQ in Yuma was perfect!. I had the BBQ pork salad, which was huge, and spouse had BBQ beef brisket sandwich. Both were excellent. The service was the best we have experienced. Restaurant had great atmosphere. Plenty of parking, and incredibly clean restrooms and dining area. Meal was around $24 mid-day. Highly recommend and...

As always our dinner experience was gorgeous. Food is die for. Atmosphere is awsome, staff were very friendly. Even my beer spilled out still our waitress took care of it right away. Side dishes were also delicious. We had a very nice dinner with my love.

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. After being seated I went to find the restroom. Kind of got lost and pasted a door that was open... More

Looking for a good BarBQ, I inquired among the guests at my hotel. I was told that "Famous Daves" was "OK". 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. What we had was very good. The waiter, Jovan, was more than willing to help us decide and he was attentive to our needs.... More
