We enjoy Famous Dave’s for really good ribs and beyond-good cornbread muffins! Their combination platters, with tastes of everything in the barbecue arena are the BEST! There is such a lot of food but it’s the best way to taste ribs, chicken, brisket and sausage,...More

We think Famous Dave's in Midvale has the best ribs around. Always tender, meaty and flavorful. I like the Manhandler sandwich for lunch, excellent mix of pork, sausage, etc.

How can you go wrong? Kids menu available. Plenty of food. We had a new server but he was friendly and we helped him along.

We often go here on Sundays after church. The meats are good. Service is good. I don't like the corn on the cob they offer as it is overcooked and too mature for my taste, but the other sides are pretty good
