Classic Utah Restaurants

#11: Maddox Ranch House - 61 years and three generations... and still thriving.


Irvin Maddox grew up in rural Perry, Utah practically living in his grandfather's successful restaurant, Maddox Ranch House. For 61 years, Maddox has been a staple in the Brigham City and greater Northern Utah world -- a busy, always-bustling, from-scratch, meat-and-potatoes country restaurant.

About 15 years ago, Irvin took the reigns from his father Stephen Maddox to run the family business and bring the Maddox restaurant into its third generation.

Their single kitchen, open Tuesday through Saturday, serves over 13 THOUSAND people every single week, and employs 230 people. This one kitchen supports Maddox's thriving sit-down restaurant that has been open since 1949, a drive-in that sits just 300 feet away, a pick-up window for locals to grab meals to prepare and eat at home, and an events lodge for weddings and corporate events.

To put it simply, Maddox is more than a restaurant. It's a family heirloom, a Perry staple, and a classic Utah success story.

Join us today on an episode of The Utah Foodie that takes us through all this and more with Maddox Ranch House owner Irvin Maddox and our host Chase Murdock.
