We got into Southern Pines a bit later than we wanted to and couldn't get to our first choice for dinner. The kids were all set on BBQ though and Dickey's was close and still serving. We were pleasantly surprised. The service was great and...More

We enjoyed eating the local BBQ, but it seemed only average in taste. The BBQ sauce had a slight pepper heat which was fine. Over all average pork sandwiches, didn't try other offerings. The service is very fast, you order at the counter.

First time I ate at Dickey's was in RVA. Which was so good. This one fell short. The meat was mainly fat. So spending 10 on a plate of mainly fat was not my cup of tea. Speaking of tea, it tasted like it had...More

We've enjoyed Dickey's Barbecue Pit for many years now, often visiting their Cary location long before they opened a location in Southern Pines. After 10 visits to the S.P. location over the past y year or so we've begun to notice a gradual decline, ie...More

Pk , it's not the same Dicky from foggy Princeton days, but he would definitely like this place. Tasty food you can take out or eat in. Laid back and unassuming - and that's just fine!

This is the fast food version of BBQ. Food was pretty good, but weird that they pulled it out of the food warmer, wrapped in plastic. Free soft serve ice cream!

I have great things and not so great about Dickey's. When they first opened, it was affordable and you got large amounts of food. Not anymore. They reduced the size of the side cups and the meals are much more expensive. They do, though, have...More

Stopped here for a quick bite, food was great, staff were very good and helpful, which was handy as I'm a BBQ learner. Tried pulled pork and texas style brisket, loved the hottest BBQ sauce.

Dickey's Barbecue Pit is a true American success story. In 1941, Travis Dickey, a World War I veteran, opened the first Dickey's Barbecue Pit in Dallas, Texas. Dickey was a true Texas character blessed with the gift of gab and the love of authentic, slow-smoked barbecue. In the beginning, Dickey's Barbecue Pit was truly a family operation with Travis working the block and Miss Ollie Dickey serving sandwiches. Space on the restaurant sign was rented out to help pay the start-up costs for the restaurant and the menu was limited to beef brisket, pit hams, barbecue beans, potato chips, beer, bottled milk and sodas. Brothers Roland and T.D. Dickey took over the business in 1967, continuing their father's legacy of quality, hickory smoked signature meats. Under the direction of the Dickey brothers, Dickey's Barbecue Pit expanded throughout the Dallas Fort Worth area and quickly became known throughout Texas for mouthwatering hickory-smoked barbecue, popular catered events and the iconic Big Yellow Cups. Franchising began in 1994 after loyal guests and barbecue fanatics demanded more locations. Today with over 530 locations in 43 states, loyal guests are what keep Dickey's thriving in every community. The brand has come a long way from Travis Dickey's first location. But, some things never change. Dickey's Barbecue Pit still slow smokes all meats on-site just the same way they did in 1941. The menu features beef brisket, pulled pork, St. Louis style ribs, polish sausage, spicy cheddar sausage, smoked turkey, and marinated chicken, with an extensive array of homestyle sides from jalapeño beans to macaroni and cheese. Buttery rolls are served with every meal along with complimentary ice cream. And just like always, kids eat free on Sunday.
