Dickeys is an O.K. place to eat.If they are going to tell people that everthing is made in house and on site.They probably shouldn't let people see them dishing up certain things,like potato salad and such out of a 5 gallon bucket.Otherwise the food is fair.

We are a franchise so all of the side recipes are prepared and shipped prior. We do prepare, marinate, and smoke all of our meats in the store. I'm sorry if you were disappointed. Thanks for your feedback! More

We had won two coupons for free big bbq sandwiches a a charity auction. Today we went to get them. A young lady seemed to be running the place. The brisket sandwiches did have much of a beef or smoke flavor. They weren't very big. There was no onion or pickle even though we specifically asked for them. The worst... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch. It's been a while for me, and now the menu has evolved. There are more choices now, such as bowls and tacos. I had the tacos, same Ingredients really, just a different format. Not too bad. Staff was very friendly here, and they were fairly busy, always a good sign.

We had the rib dinner and it was delicious!! The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were staying across the street and didn't feel like driving to a restaurant. Glad we didn't. The spinach was so good. Highly recommend!

Ordered a full rack of ribs for a nice take home treat. Worst ribs that I have had - Salty and Fatty. I could only eat 2 ribs from the whole rack and the sides were lack luster with the coleslaw and the baked potato casserole. This is not the first time at this Dickeys, but decided to give them...

The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I ordered the two meat plate of brisket and pulled pork. The brisket was not sliced but rather ripped. Couldn't see a smoke ring and it was more chopped than the pork. The Pork was not bad. Good that you can select your own sauce. The sides of fried okra and green beans... More

This was our first time going to this restaurant. Upon walking in, having Celiac Disease, I was not sure what I could eat. I googled the restaurant, and found a site that told me everything I could eat at this restaurant, and it was a large variety. I decided to do the deal of the day. It was pulled pork,... More

We have had food catered for work from Dickey's and it has always been great. Visited this week for a late lunch and was very disappointed. I moved 3 times and finally found some hand wipes to clean up the table cloth covered with BBQ sauce. The food was ok. At the end of the meal I watched a young... More

I've been to a few Dickey's before and really enjoyed them. I was excited to see a small one in our new town. We didn't go in just went through the drive through. Food was very hot and everything tasted great. Even my non bbq loving husband said he wants to go back soon.
