Our family loves coming to Famous Dave's when we come out to the city. Has something for everyone in the family. Some of our kids will get mac n cheese, hamburgers, chicken fingers, and ribs. We like when we can show up for lunch menu and get the Platter/ Combo specials for one or two meats. Comes with delicious corn... More

This place was better a while ago. Recently it seems like they reheat the food. It doesn't seem fresh at all. Very disappointing to see that happen to our once family favorite place to eat.

The best food we have had this vacation. Loved the beans, the ribs and the porc. Only a few people in the restaurant... strange. However, way too much for us but we really enjoyed it. Staff was friendly!

We love to go to Famous Daves for barbecue but we were really disappointed this time. We had the garbage lid for 4. The coleslaw, the beans and the burnt end pieces (a substitute for dry brisket) were really good. Just not the same quality--just so-so. Also, the place was not clean, the windows, blinds, floor and the menus were... More

My wife and I have been to Famous Dave's in Denver, and 3 in the Tri-County/Portland Area. We have always found the food and service very good at these other locations, so decided to give this one in Midvale, Utah a try. I guess we were just expecting too much, but the food was OK. The portions are large, so... More

Has a great pulled pork salad, nice outdoor seating in the summer months, and a good bar for a BBQ joint. They also had a great promotion for return customers.

Went there for a cousins dinner and when arrived, only one table of two was in the restaurant, no hostess, I found my party and sat down. The server, gave us excellent attention because we were the only ones, after the table... More

Famous Dave is a great place to go get some great barbecue, it is a good old stand by for me and my family. I have never been disappointed and if you would like a beer with you food Dave's can deliver.

I ordered combo priced at $16.99, Texas beef brisket and chopped pork with broccoli and pinto beans as the sides. Texas brisket was grisly and dry - not good at all. Chopped pork was tasty. Service was okay. It was irritating to eat with two flys constantly flying around us. I've had better BBQ- skip this chain location!
