“Poor excuse for Texas barbecue”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

The first clue is that here is no pit here. The barbecue is trucked in from a commissary. A chopped beef sandwich had no taste of smoke, had a mushy texture, and the sauce is thin and insipid.

If you are hankering for real Texas barbecue nearby, there are three nearby fine purveyors of the real thing: Casstevens in Lillian, Big D near downtown Mansfield, and Jambos near Rendon.

“Good meat, lots of options”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

They offer daily specials which seem to be good deals. There are many options of meats and sides. The service was great & location convenient on Broad St.

“Good BBQ and pleasant staff”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

The BBQ was tender, juicy and a nice spicy sauce. The selection of sides were good also. We had the cole slaw, potato salad, fried okra and jalapeno beans. We had take out and the staff was very nice!

“No Spring Creek.”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Average bbq. Nothing to separate it from other chains. Bored staff. Might as well pack up and head down to Spring Creek.

“Good bbq, good variety of sauces”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Dickeys is a fast food BBQ. Decent food but a little pricey. The atmosphere is not to inviting. More of a casual dining place, you stand, order, grab your food, and go. They do have a few tables if you want to dine in. Good bbq, good variety of sauces....mild, spicy, sweet. Very tender brisket. Sides don't look too appealing but are tasty. The restaurant is clean and the service is descent.
