Looking for a change from average fast food restaurants? Dickey's provides a tasty product at a fair price (check for deals and coupons, too). Family-friendly with a variety of options.

“2002 Best in BBQ?”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Had the brisket sandwich which was tasteless in fact, the sauce on the side did not help, meat was tender. Sides were also disappointing with the Mac & Cheese a sticky mess of artificial goo. Pea salad was good, the Banana Pudding was the biggest disappointment as there were no banana's in it or even near it, just tasted like a low quality vanilla glop of stuff with a few Nilla Cookies in it.
I would suggest someone check the food quality before it is served. Now I know why no awards since 2002 food is questionable.
Oh did I mention free soft-serve ICE MILK

“Execellent BBQ”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

This place was in walking distance to our hotel so it was very convenient. I am very picky about the BBQ it eat and this place passed the test. I recommend the pulled pork.

“They have pea salad :)”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

This is just fast-food BBQ, nothing really special but it's consistant and they have that cold pea salad and fried okra which you don't get at many other places around here on a regular basis.

“Best Texas BBQ Found in Denver”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

We are recently transplanted Texans and did not realize good BBQ places would be so hard to find here. We realized we were giving up seafood and Mexican Food, but BBQ too? That is until we found Dickey's. If you are from Texas, it's almost identical to Pappas who bought out all the old Luther's. Dickey's is a Texas-based restaurant. Apparently, Coloradans like the molasses, brown sugar, sweet BBQ sauce (KC style), so we have had a difficult time finding any BBQ places that have Texas-style sauce: spicy, tangy that's not sickeningly sweet. Dickey's is the best we have found thus far with their spicy sauce. I think the portions of sliced beef they serve are generous and the flavor is great, the sides are home-made and they have fresh cobbler every day with free soft-serve ice cream to top it. We eat there several times a month. I don't really understand the negative reviews.
