I had the chopped brisket with two sides, coleslaw and barbecue beans, along with a little yellow cup. The coleslaw was good, the beans weren't bad, but the brisket, while moist, was not all that flavorful. Lacked a smoky and beefy taste. The sauce was...More

Ate here one night while I was in the area for business. It appeared that our waitress was either brand new or could care less about her customers. No introduction, didn't know the bar menu at all, kept looking at one of my co-workers after...More

We ordered ahead, online so we could pick it up at 1:30. It was all ready to go and everything was as advertised. Such a nice change and really good food. It went further than I thought, but I love leftovers so that is NOT...More

Enjoy the food when we eat here but whenever I get an email from "Dickeys" that offers a promotion, this location fails to participate or honor the deal, "No Deal"....I'll go to a location that does.

Save yourself a trip and not go here. I ordered my food thru UBER Eats and this restaurant forgot half of my order. (no sauce, no mac and cheese, and no bread). When I drove back to the restaurants, the manager met me and his...More

I'm from Kansas City, so I take my BBQ and BBQ sauce very seriously. Meat: We loved the moist ribs, tasty pulled pork, three BBQ sauces (all tomato-based, original, sweet, and spicy), and many choices of sides. They smoke their meats on site, which is...More

I love a good pork barbecue place. This one missed the mark. Ribs were way too dry. Choked them down. Wish I could give this a better rating. Atmosphere wasn't bad.

This is a very basic bbq place - order at the counter - pick it up at the resister - food is good not great but considering the price it is probably a good deal - the free soft ice cream cone for dessert is...More
