It was okay

Says kids eat free on Sunday but you can only get for each paying adult. Didn't know this until we got our food. The place needs a good cleaning. For the price it was expensive... teenagers in training but management seemed to be getting irritated with them for messing up the order.

I have to give this place a hard "No". Forever. My son and I stopped in to grab a quick bite one Monday night. All the free soft serve in the world doesn't make up for the fact that their food sucks. My son ordered the pulled pork sandwich, onion tanglers and macaroni and cheese. Do I even need to... More

Pulled pork sandwich is ok. Not awesome, but not horrible. Truly middle ground. Fast food BBQ. Decent cornbread but nothing like Famous Dave's.

The lunch special on Tue is 3 bones and two sides and a soda for $10. The ribs were fall of the bone tender and just the right amount of sauce. The green beans were so soggy. They were almost the consistency of baby food. The baked potato casserole was mashed potatoes with a few cheese shreds on top.

I know a lot of people like Dickey's Barbecue. I have had some pretty dang good BBQ there, but the last few times I visited, it was only so-so. The brisket was dried out (unpardonable sin at a BBQ joint) and the 'sides' were over cooked and mushy. It's a bit spendy also. I will certainly try it again, but... More

After eating barbecue pork ribs yesterday at a different Burnsville restaurant, I was especially positively impressed with Dickey's food flavor, value, and upbeat overall feeling! While Dickey's is a chain, the Burnsville Dickey's is individually owned and offers special upgrades. I had a big portion of DELICIOUS barbecue ribs, homemade Brunswick stew, coleslaw, soft serve ice cream, and pickles, all... More

Ordered a 2 meat plate: The ribs were very good (tender & tasty) and the brisket was a little dry but had nice bark. It was a shame that they shred the brisket instead of slicing it, the way it should be done! The coleslaw & waffle fries were fine, the baked potato casserole (mashed potatoes w/ cheese & green...
