“Finally a GREAT BBQ restaurant in GB!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

I'm from the South and moved here for my husband and found it very frustrating that GB did not have a great BBQ restaurant to dine at. I absolutely LOVED the food. The Texas Brisket was so tender and juicy!!! The sides that I had were there Green Beans with Bacon and Southern Style Potato Salad (which was like a hot cup of buttery mashed potatoes w/ cheese, bacon pieces, with chives on the top..............YUM....need I say more.

My husband had one of the specials and had the mac and cheese and waffle fries.....tried them as well.....delish again!

The atmosphere is perfect for a BBQ place....very clean and after the meal (if you have room) you can get a small cup of ice cream for free :).....BTW.....they also have some great sweet tea!

My husband and I both decided this will be a staple for us! Nice job Dickey's! You know how to BBQ!

“Good Barbeque in Green Bay? YES!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Ive been fortunate to have experienced barbeque in the south, where they take barbeque very serious. Dickeys offers a good barbeque.

The restaurant is casual, what I would consider high end fast food style.

After your meal they have a self serve ice cream cone machine for you to enjoy at no additional fee.

“Don't let the name fool you. STOP IN NOW!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

Best staff at any "fast food" place in town. Amazing brisket and pork. Love the big jug of free pickle spears. Good portion size. Great casual atmosphere. I've traveled to Texas numerous times and this is authentic stuff. Northerners may not understand that the sauce is on the side for a reason. You can enjoy the meat just as it is because they don't use crappy cuts of meat. Or season with sauce to your taste. You don't have to drown poor quality meat with sauce here. It's all great.

“Catered Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

We had lunch catered in for work and the food was excellent. It was hot and delivered on time and all the condiments were included. Everyone enjoyed it. This is the second time we have lunch catered.

“Exceeding Expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Wisconsin isn't known as BBQ state but Dickey's is a restaurant chain that was started in Dallas, TX. Simply put, Dickey's knows BBQ. This location is operated with excellence and the food is top notch. When you enter you will be greeted with a smile from employees who care about their work. Some of the best items are Dickeys are their rids, chopped brisket, and turkey. Unlike many other places, the Turkey from Dickeys is moist and tender. On Sunday's kids eat free (with paying adult). Every customer gets free soft-serve ice cream everyday.
