Satisfying Meal

How can you go wrong with hot delicious food and very friendly staff? You can't! 2 meat plate with baked potato casserole after a long day of driving, very satisfying!

I was looking forward to a local crowd and having a beer with ribs after a long tough day of driving mountain roads. No such luck. Apparently, the place has changed hands and no longer has a liquor license. There was a grandmother with a walker with an adult grandchild and me. The ribs were mediocre at best and the... More

My husband and I tried this for the first time and it was absolutely delicious! The atmosphere was really great, rustic and comfortable. I ordered the three meat plate and my husband ordered the rib plate. The meats were so tender and flavorful and the portions were so large that I took half of mine home. The price was very... More

Love the brisket especially the burnt ends. I lived in Texas for awhile and this is great Q. Free ice cream is great too.

Delicious food. If you want a great tasty BBQ with a lot of flavor try Dicky's. They have many meat choices. we've been a few times. It is a large, long business. The sides are very good. (If you have trouble ambulating-- the bathroom is "way in the back, far from the door" If you use a wheelchair there is... More

Food was very good. The restaurant is divided into a bar side and a dining side. The bar side was very loud and very active, so myself and two friends chose the restaurant side so we could talk without shouting. Service was friendly and good.

Good food, excellent service....nice really nice people who own and run these restuarants. We have two of these in Visalia. My son works in Hanford and turned us on to the Dickey's here in Visalia. When I was in Porterville a couple of weeks ago, I lunch at Dickey's

I compare this food to Famous Dave's and there is no comparison. Serving sizes small for the money. Only good thing about this eating establishment is the free ice cream.

Expect nothing fancy, but do expect to receive some pretty good barbecue. Dickey's is a franchise operation with pretty strict company procedures, menus and recipes. Dickey's smokes for less time than I do and at a slightly higher temp than I do at home. But, it seems to work out just fine. Besides, they do have a schedule to follow.... More

Dickey's food is always good and there is lots of it. The best part is the people. Monica and her staff are missed by patrons of the old "Cherry Tree Catering" but at least we get to come to Dickey's to meet and great.
