My husband and I have ate and Dickey's several times and have always been happy with the food and service. Dickey's is set up similar to a Subway or Chipotle, where you line up, place your order, pick your sides, and then pay. It's fast and tastes good. I've had the hoagie sandwich a couple times and last time tried... More

Food was good. Walked in,no one around, and the two girls came out talking to each other, did not acknowledge my daughter and I. Asked if fries was included with the meal, they said yes, and we were charge for it. When we mentioned it they said we did not ask. Big big turnoff Don't know what has changed but... More

I have eaten here a couple of times since the new owners. I hope they are able to make a go of it- they seem to be trying real hard. Really like the beef brisket- has a good smoked & tangy taste. Reminds me of the brisket Mike's Smokehouse used to serve. (Restaurant in town that closed a few years... More

The food is not really all that good and the value leaves much to be desired. Even though Famous Dave's quality seems to have suffered since Dave Anderson cut ties with them it is still a far better meal and the price is about the same. The pulled pork this time around had a strange taste like gas fumes and... More

Food is great, atmosphere is not. We usually order the family ptcnic deals and bring the food home. Tasty sides, no adult beverages. I like the turkey as much as their pulled pork and brisket!

we really enjoyed the beef brisket and pulled pork with tasty classic sauce. Freshly cut meat ensured moist and fresh. Loved the Mac and cheese and coleslaw as well. Just disappointed that two visits over Father's Day weekend we were unable to buy any ribs due to their shortage. Lots of unlucky dads in our soccer group. Bet it lives... More

First visits, just a spur of the moment, I fancied ribs. I thought the place would be more like a restaurant, not pre-set, fast food outlet. I order the smaller amount of ribs for $12 which came without sides, that was a surprise, considering the size, and a salad. The salad was a sad small pot thing, with a couple... More

This place is under new ownership for several months now and the food quality and consistency keeps falling. Tried it again last night (and for the last time). I had ham plate with mac and fries. The ham was soooooo dry that I couldn't eat it. The mac and dinner roll were cold. Wife had the beef sandwich which was... More

My husband is from North Carolina and we go to visit the Smokies once a year. When we are down there, we like to get some of that great Barbecue that they make in the Western part of North Carolina. Dickey's Barbeque Pit has the closest we've found, in this area, to the flavorful barbeque of the South. Their sides... More

The meat is a mixed bag during my 3 visits here: good brisket, lousy turkey, and inconsistent pulled pork. Portions of meat are rather skimpy for the price. Sides are pretty decent, as are the sauces. If you HAVE to have BBQ and you're on this side of town, it's fine. If you come from somewhere with great BBQ, don't... More
