A family favorite....

Dickey's has few frills, but great BBQ. There are many side choices as well. The fried okra and coleslaw are good. Atmosphere is fairly rustic, but food is quick and tasty.

This is kind of like a fast food BBQ place. You will get your food quickly, but pretty much every veggie is fried. The kid's menu isn't great- chicken nuggets and a BBQ sandwich from what I remember BUT as an alternative to the other fast food in the same parking lot (McDonald's), it's a winner.

My barbecue guru once told me, "If you can't see the heat, don't eat the meat." Meaning, if the place doesn't cook the meat outdoors, with wood and all the glorious smoke thereof, then don't bother. Lemme just say, I don't see no pit out behind Dickey's "Pit" Barbecue. Once again, the guru spoke wisdom. Those who fail to heed... More

The staff is always friendly. The portion size is adequate. I had the smokehouse salad it was delicious. It's also nice to get free ice cream, it tends to be a little runny even for soft serve.

Dickies only recently made its way to Athens, Georgia and it is a cut above most chain barbecue restaurants. I particularly like the daily specials.

Just another chain like McDonalds. Ribs are dry and chewy. Sauce lack any flavor. The place was empty when we went in.
