“Average BBQ Joint”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012 via mobile

Being from KC we love our BBQ. Overall this is average BBQ. Not great, but not really bad. The chicken seemed a little mushy, but ribs were good. Not fond of the beans. Not much flavor to them. Coleslaw is excellent. We found the service to be outstanding and the place was really clean. We are in town a couple of times a year and will be back.

“Great Place for BBQ in Porterville”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Granted, there aren't a lot of choices in Porterville, but this place ranks among the best restaurants in town, regardless of the type. Great atmosphere, great food, and the service is great too. Limited menu but everything on it is tasty. For a quick lunch or casual dinner, this is a great choice.

“Good Q!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

My wife and I had lunch at Dickey's for the first time today, and it won't be the last time! The food was excellent, the place was clean, and the help were friendly. This is just what Downtown Porterville needed. Dickey's will be a great addition to the dining choices in Porterville.

“Tasteless”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

Meat has almost no taste whatsoever. It has a texture of baby food. If it's smoked they must use one toothpick for wood ! The ribs were more like boiled instead of barbequed.
