“Great Catering Restaurant”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

We have eaten at Dickey's on several occasions and really enjoyed the food and service. We found out about their catering division and it saved us this year for holiday parties. We had 5 holiday parties and Dickey's catered all of them to some degree including delivery and set up. They exceeded expectations and the food was fantastic. They were willing to work with us and gauged our needs with food portions and they were spot on. We are using them again for big event in January. I have no complaints and can't say enough about how great they have been and will continue to use them.

“Desperation cases only”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

On the feeder off of HWay 6 bypass. Standard franchise type facility off the parking lot of Gander Mountain.

Food is wholly uninspiring BBQ, I would rank it at the bottom of this municipal area. Fargos is much better, but will probably entail waiting. CJs is a whole lot better and more of a restaurant setting, instead of Dickeys drive-thru, fast food, plastic-chair setting.

All the meats in my 3-meat plate tasted a day old (this was on a Saturday early afternoon). Brisket was crumbly, dry, and rubbery. The pork ribs were gristly, moderately tough, and with a poor flavor. the BBQ sauce tastes canned and uninspiring. The Mac&Cheese was watery, literally macaroni in a soupy warm thin cheese sauce - honestly, who can screw up M&C??? Dickey's, that's who. The BBQ beans were OK.

All in all - unless you are desperate for BBQ and not particularly discriminating, with a little bit of effort you can find something in the area that is much better.

“Meh.”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Service and atmosphere were adequate but the food was just bland for a BBQ joint. My chicken was dry and flavorless, my date's pork was fatty and flavorless.

“Doesn't live up to the Dickey's standard.”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

I grew up on Dickey's original location in Dallas. The College Station location is a disappointment at best. This place needs some quality control management involvement. The brisket was more fat than meat. The pork was cold and greasy. The tea was not fresh and just didn't smell right. I passed on the ice cream - a first for me. I sure do miss the great BBQ, okra, LBJ salads, and ice cream at Dickey's of my youth.

“nice chain-style barbeque”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Items are served in individual containers and are reasonable in price and very tasty. There is a drive through and if you eat inside you can have free ice cream for desert.
