Good variety of barbeque but something was missing. Wide selection of sides but the green beans an bacon was lukewarm at best.

Having eaten at Dickey's in the DFW airport many times and enjoyed it, I figured that a non-airport site would be at least as good and quick. I was also hoping to be able to counter some of the not-so-positive reviews of the Durham restaurant...More

Dickeys has great BBQ, chicken, and brisket. I had the "Baker", which is a large baked potato stuffed with grilled chicken, cheese, sour cream (and whatever else you want) on it. The sweet tea is excellent, and everyone gets free ice cream for dessert!
