“Wow really moist barbecue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

I stopped in the new Saint Petersburg Dickeys Barbecue to try a pulled pork sandwich. When I walked in the smell was amazing!
The gentleman behind the counter asked me if I would like a taste of the beef brisket that was just finished. I said sure, wow what a surprise! The taste was so moist and full of flavor that i decided to order a pound of the brisket. and an order of mac and cheese to eat later. They told me this brisket is slow cooked for 17 hours.
The side dishes are great too. The mac and cheese is the cheesiest! and the beans with jalapeno where the bomb,not to spicy but with loads of flavor.
Dickey's will cater a party with a minimum of ten or you can eat in the restaurant.. They offer sandwiches and plate meals with drinks served in a big yellow cup. You can also order by the pound finished or whole. I visited their website after eating and found that this is a franchise that originates from the Dallas Texas area. They have locations all over the country. look for more of them to open locally as this is great barbecue at a great price.I paid $12.00 for a pound of slow cooked beef brisket.

“Simple good BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

My first visit will be one of many stops at Dickey's Barbeque Pit! Very good BBQ, Fast service, good sides! Not much more needs to be said.
I really enjoyed the two meat platter with beef brisket, pulled pork, fried okra, and green beans. Spicey BBQ sauce was great.

“Looking forward to another visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

This location literally opened less than a week ago. That being said, they are doing great! I do have to start with only one negative, then I'll move on to all of the positives and the potential. The ordering process is much like that of a Subway or a Boston Market; get in line at one end of the counter where the first person takes your meat order, starts your tray of food and moves you along to the next employee who then fills your side dish requests and on down the counter until your order is complete and you are at the cash register. During our visit, the "Order Here" point was horribly backed up, as it turns out...due to the "meat" station employee having to trim a fresh beef brisket. (Hot out of the smoker, this is GREAT...I probably shouldnt complain at all!) However, this kept anyone from being able to place an order at all. The down side is that while waiting (& waiting), as many as 4 employees at a time were behind the counter and not one of them explained why we were waiting. (The line behind us was getting bottled-necked out by the booths and tables at this point!) The process was halted. I'm hoping that they work this out so that side dishes can be started or drinks fulfilled because everyone in line was getting aggravated. I really liked the place and hate to see it not prosper. Moving on....the food was GREAT! We ordered a kids meal (comes with a drink), a sandwich, plus a drink, and the daily special, (which also came with a drink). Our total bill was less than $21. The drink cups are collectible, hard plastic, yellow cups with the Dickey's logo. They don't warrant a free refill on another visit, but they are definitely a cup that you'd keep! Now...the best part and clearly the most fun for the whole family is that Dickey's has FREE ICE CREAM....for everyone...all the time! At the beverage and condiment bar, there's also a soft serve ice cream machine with cones! Help yourself! Such a great idea and tasty, too! I loved the food, the atmosphere, the ice cream & the price so much, that I will definitely be back to give the Order Here line another try. Overall...very happy with the new Dickey's BBQ!
