Famous Fat Dave took me and my sister and parents through Manhattan and Brooklyn. I loved the pizza and doughnut and the burger. But I was surprised that I also loved the pastrami and celery soda and Pakistani chicken sandwich. It was so fun!

Famous Fat Dave's tour is a great activity for teenagers. My teenaged son and daughter who are hard to please were thrilled! Perfect family time while eating your way through NY
