Reviewed November 5, 2012

I had the Brishket and it was meaty and moist. Excellent value for lunch of dinner. We ate at the downtown location.

“What You'd Expect”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

This place is more or less a fast-food joint, and if that's what you're expecting when you walk in, you won't be disappointed. I had the ribs, and they were pretty good. A little on the pricey side though...

“A Texas Favorite in Raleigh”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

Usually when a great local place goes viral the quality suffers. I always loved Dickey's BBQ in Dallas (and when flying will opt for Dallas as a stop over so I can go there). A few have opened in the Chapel Hill, NC area and they are as good as Dallas. But then NC is familiar with BBQ.

“Awful - Ought To Be Shot Like A Crippled Horse”
Reviewed March 13, 2012

Went here for lunch today. Long wait with little activity behind counter. The "cue" was dank-tasting, cold, fatty, and almost flavorless. The sausage was simply awful - had to disguise the taste with BBQ sauce. The green bean sides were boiled half to death and swimming in greasy water - Nasty Bean Soup. Pretty much the only edible thing was the (apparently frozen) fried okra.
For all this delicious stuff I paid almost $11 - and this was the Tuesday "special".
A bonus was listening to the manager laugh about a catering customer who called to complain about poor service: "He said he was gonna call the Chamber of Commerce - go ahead!" A clue to the awful food and slow service, perhaps?
Seriously folks, this is a state that prides itself on its cue. The kind of trip Dickey's served up to me today wouldn't cut it in Central Prison. Never again.
