Late nite eats at Famous Dave on Fourth st in Ontario CA just before closing and we were welcomed with open arms. Dinner was delish, I'm having Dave's Favorite brisket bbq sandwich. Yum.

I have been here so many times can not count. This is the best BBQ in the IE and maybe even in all of So. Cal. I have tried most of the food on the menu and always get my favorites from now on. Unfortunately they changed the brisket so do not recommend getting that but everything else is good.

The Famous Dave's margarita rocks, ribs and all meat dishes are phenomenal. The bread pudding is mediocre but you're not coming here for that

Came here on a weeknight with co-workers while in the area for business. We didn't have a reservation, but the 5 of us were seated right away. The service was excellent for the whole visit. I had Burnt Ends, and a chopped salad and both were delicious. My co-workers all ordered a variety of items and liked everything. The meal... More

I miss Famous Dave's from living in Utah. I love the cornbread muffins and pulled pork. Several different sauces add to the experience. It was a great visit to an old favorite.

Dang....! Smells so good, even in the parking lot. And the flavor did not disappoint! Mmmmmmm Had the feast with a little of everything, and started with the buffalo shrimp appetizer. With our group one was not enough. They were so good we ordered two more.

There ribs are simply delicious. The beans and Cole slaw are great. Wow this place is a real find. If you are near here stop in and have some great barbeque. You won't be sorry.

We eat at famous Dave's in the east coast and found this location to be very true to the franchise. Our dry rub ribs were excellent as was our brisket. Having six types of sauce is really a nice bit about Dave's because you can mix and match and change up the different sauces. Our service was great. Our best... More

Having eaten at a lot of BBQ places, my expectancy was high, but I was disappointed. The food came within three minutes of ordering telling me that this was not freshly cooked, but pre-cooked and warmed. The ribs were tough, chicken average and the rest ok. The atmosp here is good, but the food average
