Went with a group of about 12-14 for dinner - I got there first and went into the bar to order a drink which was their version of a long island ice tea. It was watered down - lacking flavor (confirmed by my wife and one other) and when I told them they didn't seem to care -- I said... More

Dinner is good there. The sauces are always too spicy for me, so I ordered my ribs naked (no sauce). Service was very good. My sides, fries and broccoli were good as well.

This was our second visit to Dave's in Tracy, Ca and it was as good as the first. Their Cheesey Mac is my absolute favorite. I also enjoyed the Burnt Ends nd Chopped pork.

While some consider this to be one of the better barbecue chains, for my taste it does not stand up to the true definition of great barbecue as without sauce some of the entrées are a bit bland from a smoky standpoint. The prices are fair, the service is good, and the portions are ample. They have a wide selection... More

The food tasted ok but was luke warm, tiny meat servings and we went home still hungry. For the price paid would have been stuffed elsewhere. Hardly anyone was there and now know why. Won't be going back. Predict this will be the next restaurant to close.

I could not believe how good the quality of their big portions is. We ate at the place in Tracy California but google it....there are many more Famous Dave's in many selected cities. The service it cordial & friendly The meals are large to small portion

Went for an early dinner one weekday evening. Looking forward to good BBQ. Food was just OK. my ribs while tasting good were over cooked and my wife's pulled pork was dry. The service was good and the beer cold. May go back for a second try but there is better BBQ in Tracy.
