It has been 10 years or so since I last ate at Eddie's World Famous Ribs and I'll tell you what... they are even better than I remember. Now I've been there twice in the past month. Hands down, these are the best ribs I've had in the Twin Ports... possibly ever. The rub they use for the ribs is... More

Someone had recommended this restaurant to us and it was not what we expected. The service was slow and the food was only ok...nothing to write home about. And yes we had the ribs and although they good, we found them to be skimpy overall.

The ribs at this place are great! I had a chicken and ribs combo meal. The ribs a were meaty and the sauce sweet and spicy. The chicken was moist and tasted fresh. The meal came with a salad. The server told me that they make several of the dressings. I had the blue cheese dressing and my husband had... More

I've wanted to try Eddie's World Famous Ribs ever since hearing their commercials on the radio quite a number of years ago but just never seemed to have a chance. Well on a trip to Duluth this past weekend, my wife and I finally visited...and sure glad we did! The service was excellent and so was the food. Everything was... More

I have heard of this place off the beaten track in Superior. It lived up to what I had heard! Meaty ribs with good tangy thick BBQ sauce, the Caesar dinner salad was generous and the toffee chip cheesecake dessert fluffy and tasty. This place is decorated with models of hot rods, muscle cars and car 'stuffy' which is fun.... More

We have eaten at Eddie's for many years. No matter what we order (we always go for dinner) it is always great. The service is superior, food tasty, hot, well prepared, and the prices are right. Their apps are terrific, their soups are great (always taste homemade) and every entree we've ordered has been outstanding. Cant vouch for desserts-we are... More

Inside as everyone else stated lots... More

Don't miss this & you don't need to break the bank either! - Much better than nearby fast food on highway 2, But Eddies is a couple blocks to the south when you enter Superior from the east. Down home environment with old automobile decor. Hubby always orders the traditional ribs. Whenever we are out of town and he has... More

This is a great independent restaurant serving up generous portions of very good food. It's (apparently) world famous for its ribs, but everything we ate was good (we were a party of about 12). Prime Rib gets a special mention, if (when) I go back I'll be ordering that. The atmosphere was great, the people very friendly and the service... More
