“Good Pick up Dinner”

Dickey's Barbecue Pit
Ranked #41 of 110 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.

Our family was looking for a dinner idea during the week between Christmas and New Years and an emissary was dispatched to find a solution. They returned with brisket, sausage and two sides from Dickey's and everyone agreed the food was quite good. All in our family group have been to other Dickey's locations in other areas and the consensus was this one was one of the better ones.

Had high expectations since most dickeys are pretty good for chain bbq. The service was slow. Ordered a chicken and beef brisket plate. The brisket must have been over cooked 3 days prior it was dried out and more like jerky. Got a chocolate chip cookie and when I got to the house to eat it there was MOLD on the bottom. Don't know how much longer this place will keep the doors open.

Dickey's in Southern Pines is a great place to find quality barbecue done with a taste of Texas. Grew up eating at the original Dickeys in Dallas, Texas. Don't always get that original taste in other Dickey's but the one in Southern Pines has a very good and right taste. I thought for a moment I was eating brisket like I enjoyed so many times in Dallas.

Wife and I eat frequently at Dickey's in Southern Pines and Durham (now closed). We've always had good food and service. For some reason, the service was slow and non-friendly on this particular day in Southern Pines. No smiles, good greetings, ... I guess everyone has a bad day now and then. Have returned since then, and the people were very friendly and service was good. Going back again next week!
