“Don't understand the fuss”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

After reading the recommendations on Trip Advisor we decided to give this place a try with a group of friends. We all love good BBQ and we're open to different styles and methods of the 'art'. But our visit, on all counts, was a major disappointment. Lots of tasteless sauce covering tough meat. There should be a juicy blending of meat and BBQ sauce. But in this case it was as if they were using the sauce to smother tough over cooked meat. None of our group was happy. Service was obligatory at best. So despite the recommendations of other reviewers, we won't be back.

“They didn't want my corporate business.”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

I called early in the morning to order food for a group of people to pick up. I was told that they can't do it because they have to cook the meat. So I'm thinking, a BBQ place that cooks meat to order can't cook meat for a large order for 20-25 people? So what do they do when people come to the restaurant. If they really wanted my business, they would have made it happen.

Their food it really good though. Next time, I'll call Dickies BBQ Pit first.

“Absolute Best Ribs and Sauce!”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

BEST RIBS/SAUCE, and fresh yummy food! Always guaranteed an excellent meal for a fair price. I often call in my order, and the staff has always been consistent in their great service. Employees are very nice, efficient, and my food is ready to go within ten minutes. Will always be their loyal customer.

“Very friendly service and great food”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

We always come to this place for a great texas food! The atmosphere is very cowboy like especially on the outside of the restaurant which is really creative. The sloppy joes are delicious! They are very buisy on the weekends and there might be a wait but it is worth it. They also have very good soup and have a great variety. The service is always very friendly and helpful with ordering your food. Overall this is a great place to have some texas food.
