Famous Dave is one of the best barbacue restaurants in the Salt Lake Valley area. We lived in Midvale about a year ago and we enjoyed eating at this establishment. It is one of our favorite places to eat in the area. We enjoy the dinner for two it has a variety of great meat and the baked beans are delicious. I always recommend this restaurant to all my family, friends and associates.

I'm sorry if I did this badly, but this is my first time.

This please gave me instant gratification. First: I had fast serves, she gave me my drink within 15 Secants, and she gave me my food in under a minute, Second: the food was excellent.

Warning to you BYU fans: when you walk in through the door, there is a giant UTS flag in front of you.

Just a year ago, an old friend took me to his high school's homecoming. We arrive at Famous Dave's to meet 4 or 5 other couples. The dress i wore we much different from the other girls present. They each wore a dark, half length, small, easy to fit in, dress. While I had spent lots of time and energy to look as adorable and grown up as I could. I wore a long dark skirt with a tight corset. I ordered my full raque of ribs dripped with bbq sause. They were so tender, juicy, and messy. I was enjoying my face in my meal. I look, with my mouth full of meat, down my table and noted that all the girls, including some boys, ordered a very large salad, later, which they could not finish.
My date proudly anounced, once again, that I was his girl. I laughed.
Famous Dave's atmosphere is so cozy, the ole western feel, taste, look, and smell, brings a good taste of beer and ribs!

I'm always up for some good food and willing to travel the distance. I decided to go to this FAMOUS DAVE'S, it's a clean restaurant with the typical chain look. Prompt seating and service was excellent!! Huge selection of food from fish, appettizer's, sausage, chicken, ribs, sandwiches, etc. I received my food quickly which was RIBS! Since I heard so much bout dem ribz I was just tempted on trying them!!! They had a great taste, great sauce! The only major complaint was they were quite costly for the amount provided. The prices are what you would typically see in TGIF, Tony Roma's, etc. For a great example check out Sonny Bryan's, Jim Neely's Interstate BBQ, Arthur Bryant's. A all located in other states and world famous for BBQ.

All of the food is GREAT and extremely enjoyable Q!! The ONLY negative (and THIS is a HUGE negative) is that they have Pepsi products and NO COKE (if restaurants want to have Pepsi they should also have "the real thing" which is Coke!)! Because of this, instead of being able to dine there and enjoy it, I'm forced to usually get takeout and enjoy my coke with it at home! I've never attempted to take my OWN Coke into Famous Dave's, however, which is a possibility. That's why my rating here is RECOMMENDED instead of HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Before coming to Utah, I thought that the best BBQ I had tried was the Salt Lick in Austin,TX, but now that I have tried Famous Daves, I don't regret moving to Utah from Texas, as I can still enjoy great BBQ.

We asked for takeout, just to try this restaurant, the ribs, the sausage links that we ordered were amazing, their spicy BBQ sauce is extremely good, but you really don't need it as the Ribs and Sausages have BBQ flavor all over them.

Price was more than fair for the amount of food we received, service was prompt and helpful.

I am already hooked to this BBQ restaurant, greatly recommended

I'm from Chicago and love great ribs! The ribs at Famous Dave's were mediocre at best. We're baby back rib fans because they are so tender and moist-Famous Dave's doesn't even offer them! The "charred" flavor of the ribs tasted burned to me. We won't be back.

Plenty of sauces to try, most are good. Do try the Devil's Spit. It's not hot.
Potato salad was ech.
Ribs are smoked and held, then grilled to reheat. Poor method and ruins the flavor.

Variety is the spice of life!! I really like the fact that they have many BBQ sauces on the table if one should so desire a different flavor than the "perfect" way FD's it come to your plate. I enjoyed the food as is. I have been to other places that seem to think that to put BBQ sauce on "boiled" meat makes it BBQ. The flavor of FD's meat along with the tenderness indicates they cook their meat on a grill quite a long time for a true BBQ flavor. I had the ribs. My wife had the pulled pork sandwich, both were good. The music was classic rock which is a step up from the "country": music played in other places in the valley.

YUM YUM YUMMY RIBS AND RIB TIPS. AND THE CORN BREAD IS THE BEST CORN BREAD I HAVE EVER TRIED, BUT I WOULD STAY AWAY FROM THE CHICKEN IT'S NOT THE BEST. THE PORK AND BEANS AND DRUNKIN APPLES ARE VERY FLAVORABLE. THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE RESTAURANTS.

OK so this chain of 132 restaurants is better than Tony Roma's, so what. The ribs are good, but if you want the best in Utah go to Q4U (West Valley). The sides from Famous Dave's are pitiful. Tony Roma has far better tasting beans. The corn is from last year. And what is that apple thing? The best side is the cole slaw. The sampler plate served on a garbage can lid is cute, it adds to the country/western atmosphere.
UPDATE: Just opened, the best bbq in layton is HOLY SMOKE. It's across from the Hilton Gardens, two blocks S.W. of Dave's. HOLY SMOKE is the best bbq north of SLC in Utah. And HOLY SMOKE is NOT a chain. The best of HOLY SMOKE are the ribs and brisket. The best sides are the creamed corn and beans. Try this place, and you will never go back to Dave's.

I had the brisket and pulled pork.

The brisket was tender and perfect for slathering in Dave's great assortment of sauces. I like the sweet/hot sauce myself.

The pulled pork was tender like always. Very nice!

The meal was served with cornbread, lodge potatoes, and beans. All were great. Try some of the Georgia BBQ sauce on your lodge potatoes.

I have been very pleased with Dave's every time I have been there. It is one place I love to take out of town guests.

Our server was prompt and attentive.

The food is good overall. The beef brisket was the best in my opinion. It had a really good smoke flavor. The chopped pork was great and moist but the ribs was a dissapointment (small/not much meat). They put way too much sauce on them and was slightly dry and burnt. The sauce totally covered up the taste of the meat. So, order your ribs "naked". The sauce is very good though. I'm sure they are good but probably had a bad visit. The rest of the meal was good overall. The beans and "lodge potatoes" were great. The potatoes had a great taste to them even though they are not seasoned. It must be the lard they use to give it that great taste. The service and atmosphere was also great.

Famous Daves has something besides barbeque, Fish! They have several fish related items on the menu that you would expect of a North Woods Eatery. I highly recommend the Catfish Fingers!

The ribs, bread pudding, drunkin apples, and corn muffins are the best I have ever tasted.
Their roasted chicken tastes just like costco's, which is good.
What I did not like was the atmosphere.
It appealed more to hunters than families and it was as dark as a bar.
The restrooms could be little cleaner.
Besides that eveything was clean and comfortable and I forgot all about when I had the ribs.

I want great taste, good value, & an appropriate atmosphere. Famous Daves has all the above. Most SLC restaurants cater to the bland pallet no guts same old, same old, blaaaa! Let's compare a few of the favorite SLC BBQ shops 1.) Sugar-House BBQ is kind of bland and not near as generous as FD's. 2.) The Q on the other hand reheats dry, over cooked meat then they try to hide that fact by smothering it in an average BBQ sauce, besides that, they are over priced. If you have had real BBQ around the country, in places like Memphis, Tennessee or Oklahoma, or even Texas, you know what BBQ is supposed to taste like. Famous Dave's is as close as your going to get to real BBQ. Famous Dave's is the exception here. The food is wonderful, servings are generous.

This place is great! Best BBQ in SLC (I actually go to the one in Layton), it's noisy enough that your kids will fit right in (there's even a roll of paper towels for when your 4-yr old inevitably spills his drink), and service is fast and friendly. I've thought about getting a job there just so I can eat there more often!

Excellent atmosphere, good service, and the food speaks for itself. The roasted chicken was wonderful, with great sides of fries, corn, and corn muffin. Ended with their famous bread pudding!

Famous Daves is the best BBQ restaurant in SLC hands down. I mean, where else can you go hungry to a restaurant, order your food, have it delivered on a garbage can lid, and leave completely satisfied (and with some leftovers as well)? The answer: only at Famous Daves, the best darn BBQ Salt Lake City has to offer

This place is either really good and quick, or painfully slow. My wife and I went to eat Sunday afternoon. We got right in to sit down within 5 minutes, ordered, and had to wait 33 minutes for a sandwich. The chicken on my sandwich was burned black. The waiter was apologetic, saying how busy they were, but a group that came in about ten minutes after us, was served their food before us. I'll have to be VERY hungry before I go back. We've had much better service there.

These guys know their BBQ. Slow smoked, slow cooked, wood fired flavor, no liquid smoke here. Next time you are in there ask them to show you their smoker. They seem to loved to show it off.There are no substitutes for time and tender loving care. Quality and quantity. A full rack of ribs will feed a family of four for the winter. They call it a St. Louis style rib. All I know is they are meaty, tender and put to shame the pressure cooked/boiled mini ribs most restaurants pass off as BBQ. There is not space to talk about the rest of the menu but it is just as good. Chicken, Brisket to die for and a pork sandwich that you will crave everyday for lunch. As you can tell I eat there frequently.
