Fossie's Barbecue

Good barbecue and one of the few places where they don't put a bunch of sweet mess on the sandwich and call it sauce. Real old fashion Barbecue.

Been eating here since Fossie ran the little BBQ place. Many Many years and it is the best BBQ in the USA. It is a drive up order place and now ran by Fossie's descendants. Best food and best people.

Small, drive thru with 2 picnic tables (no indoor dining area). Fun and funky little BBQ place. I had the pulled pork plate. True Tennessee 'que.

No doubt this is the best bbq in dickson, but it's really difficult to catch open. By time I get home from work its closed already. Great food, terrible hours.

I have been eating here since I was little (40 years) and there is no other like it. If you come through Dickson and do not stop , you should be arrested!

It's a small stand with picnic tables. It's pulled pork BBQ is the best. Great smoked flavor, very lean. The hot red sauce is not thick but is the best. Have been stopping here for BBQ since I was a child many years ago. Family owned and very friendly. This is one of those diamonds in the rough. Don't forget... More

Doesn't look like much from the outside. Walk up service. Picnic table outside if you would like to sit a while. Best barbecue around. You'll be back.
