They offer a great selection of BBQ and sides for a moderate price. They are consistently good for a chain. They also serve good mixed drinks..The people are friendly and can serve a group quite quickly

This place was way over priced and the food was not of an edible quality. So disappointed because I have done 3 hour road trips to eat at there Manchester NH location!! Go a cross the street to Dallas. Better prices and food for the buck!

I come here EVERY TIME I'm in NYC. Their sticky wings and massive cocktails are the BEST! I've been here quite a few times and NEVER have an issue.

A bit grubby (filthy sticky drinks menus), average service, all a bit half hearted. Food - OK-ish. With so many other options nearby - why put up with this? One of the two restrooms (unisex) was out of soap!

In the heart of theatre land Daves offers a great selection of goodies to get you messy! We were there at happy hour and the drink deals are great value. Ribs and burgers are well cooked and tasty. Service was good but not over fast.

We ate here on a Sunday night. Our waitress was not very friendly, they were out of a lot of menu choices, and the food was terrible! If this restaurant wasn't located in Times Square it would never survive! The Mac and Cheese looked like it had been sitting out for days and it was hardly warm when it arrived.... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
