Dickey's Barbecue Pit
Ranked #59 of 106 Restaurants in Southern Pines
Price range: $5 - $13
Cuisines: Barbecue
Description: Dickey's Barbecue Pit is a true American success story. In 1941, Travis Dickey, a World War I veteran, opened the first Dickey's Barbecue Pit in Dallas, Texas. Dickey was a true Texas character blessed with the gift of gab and the love of authentic, slow-smoked barbecue. In the beginning, Dickey's Barbecue Pit was truly a family operation with Travis working the block and Miss Ollie Dickey serving sandwiches. Space on the restaurant sign was rented out to help pay the start-up costs for the restaurant and the menu was limited to beef brisket, pit hams, barbecue beans, potato chips, beer, bottled milk and sodas. Brothers Roland and T.D. Dickey took over the business in 1967, continuing their father's legacy of quality, hickory smoked signature meats. Under the direction of the Dickey brothers, Dickey's Barbecue Pit expanded throughout the Dallas Fort Worth area and quickly became known throughout Texas for mouthwatering hickory-smoked barbecue, popular catered events and the iconic Big Yellow Cups. Franchising began in 1994 after loyal guests and barbecue fanatics demanded more locations. Today with over 530 locations in 43 states, loyal guests are what keep Dickey's thriving in every community. The brand has come a long way from Travis Dickey's first location. But, some things never change. Dickey's Barbecue Pit still slow smokes all meats on-site just the same way they did in 1941. The menu features beef brisket, pulled pork, St. Louis style ribs, polish sausage, spicy cheddar sausage, smoked turkey, and marinated chicken, with an extensive array of homestyle sides from jalapeño beans to macaroni and cheese. Buttery rolls are served with every meal along with complimentary ice cream. And just like always, kids eat free on Sunday.

We got take out BBQ, it was very good. Its a fast food type place with no liquor license. We got the extra large family size,which included three meats (we chose pulled pork, brisket and spicy sausage) three sides (we picked Mac & cheese, baked potato casserole and cole slaw)and hush puppies! I don't know why but the gave us double sides and we had enough food to feed 7 dinner and left overs for lunch! Pork was great, moist and juicy, very flavorful. Sausage was spicy and tasty, different. The brisket was outstanding, by far the best of the three meats. The sides were yummy, kids loved the mac and cheese, and the cole slaw was dynamite! They gave us BBQ sauce - carolina vinegar based, standard & spicy.

The location was great from our hotel. We liked the BBQ! Some of the employees were nicer than others, some didn't want to explain some of the items and how they were prepared.

This is like a fast food type atmosphere. The food is fantastic especially if you like barbecued ribs. They also reward you after a meal with a free soft ice cream which you serve yourself. Note though if you love ribs arrive early for it does get busy.
