My wife and I stopped by and got the loaded baked potato with chopped beef!! What a good choice!! The beef was tender and very tasty and the potato was huge, so we were able to share. The 2 servers were the best, very friendly and glad to provide some extra BBQ sauce, butter, etc!! We thoroughly enjoyed our meal!!... More

A must stop for their Texas BBQ brisket before you catch your plane or if you just landed and wanted a taste of the Lone Star State. Prices are reasonable for an airport restaurant. Fast and easy place to dine. Dickey's is a major BBQ chain in Texas and other parts of the Southwest but their BBQ is the real... More

No airport restaurant is what I would consider fine dining but the quality of the food at Dickey's was below what I would expect. Meat was too fatty. Mac and Cheese was about to celebrate a birthday. I've eaten there before and the food was much better in the past but this time was not impressive.

Flying from Florida to New Mexico we switched SouthWest air planes in Dallas, saw the unique long line at Dickey's BBQ and chose to go for it. Had the 3 meat plate with 2 sides for $15-ish and added a box of $5 fried rice from next door and the 2 of us had a wonderful lunch for $20. All... More

I ate at the Terminal "C" Dickey's, ordering the Chicken Plate special, $10 for a half chicken, two vegetable sides, and a drink. Not a bad deal, the chicken was nice and tender, but there wasn't enough BBQ sauce, so it was pretty dry. I picked the jalapeno beans and green beans with bacon. Neither was especially good - the...

I plan to return on my next... More

Stop here when in Terminal A due to few other choices. Dickie's is a long term Texas barbecue and is normally very good, as it is here.

I love BBQ, try to get some every time I travel no matter where I travel. At the DFW airport today and found Dickey's BBQ Pit. Awesome Brisket sandwich! Hot and yummy. Can't figure out for the life of me why folks were in line at McDonalds. Visit Dickey's and you WON'T be sorry!

I ate at the DFW airport food court Dickie's in Terminal A, I think. I know - What am I doing ordering a veggie platter at a BBQ place? I was only interested in the sides - so I ordered Macaroni and cheese, Cole slaw, and Jalapeno beans. Cole Slaw was awful only had a couple of spoons and I... More

Having recently been introduced to great BBQ at Rudy's I thought I'd try out Dickie's. What a disappointment! DRY brisket that was tougher than jerky. This was an express kiosk at the airport food court, so there was no ambiance. Too bad the food didn't compensate for the setting.
