Our authentic BBQ starts in a live-wood smoker stoked with genuine hickory logs. Our pitmasters hand-rub the meats with a custom blend of spices and cook for hours to extract the natural flavors. We source the highest quality meats and trim them up like we’re in a competition and hand-rub them with the freshest seasonings available to create mouthwatering experiences! In addition to our BBQ and grilled meats, our menu features a selection of salads, sandwiches, side items, and made-from-scratch desserts.

    Good and service was terrific. It was surprising to see how empty it was on a Friday night during snowbird season.

    We had a group of 12 and our server was Liz. She was great and made sure the entire table was taken care of. The food was great and portions were larger than expected.

    I needed to hold an informal meeting with guys who are going to fish for bass in Mexico with me in February 2024. Famous Dave’s in Tempe was central for all of us, and right next door to Bass Pro Shops. Perfect, no? Well, the staff and the food were fabulous. The meeting room was closed for my night, so the manager scheduled us for the quietest table available in the main dining room. On meeting night, we were early but the service assistant took us right to it. "Quietest" is a relative term. But we could hear ourselves above the din and we could hear our waitress, a feisty young lady whose husband is a bass angler. She was amazing! Our appetizers and main courses were delicious. The open-plate brisket I had was melt-in-your mouth wonderful. I cut it with my fork edge. But it was the service that impressed me most. No complaints of any kind. I’ll definitely be back again.

    The A/C was on it it made the food cold right away. I like hot food, hot when I am eating it. It was a cool day outside so I'm not sure why the A/C was blowing the entire time we were there. Frustrating.

    I was meeting up with my family and my in-laws and a young lady was very sweet to give me a table away from everyone and all the traffic. This was a very important talk to us and they even waited for us to finish even after closing at 9pm (we didn’t know you closed at 9pm btw) but the staff didn’t interrupt us, they were literally amazing and I couldn’t be more grateful.
