Restaurant details
Reviewed September 2, 2013

We thought that Dickey's was gone from Lynchburg, VA. That was so sad to see them shut down back around Christmas 2012.
We stopped in Lynchburg to eat supper on our way home from vacation. This would be the last stop. We were headed for another restaurant when we saw that Dickey's was reopened. Needless to say we changed our plan and went here. We asked and found that they had a new owner and would be there.
This was great. We loved our pork and brisket platters. I had mine with fried okra and jalapeno beans (love those beans).
The food was wonderful. I wish they had Brunswick Stew.
The employees were friendly and nice to everyone.
I'd recommend anyone to stop here and we'll be back next time we pass through Lynchburg.

Very good bar-b-que. Will stop there next time we go to Va Tech. The pulled pork was very tender. Cole slaw was tasty and liked the different sauses. Would like to try the ham next time.

Every employee there seems disinterested in having customers there. Went by last night at 8:55, and they were wrapping up for close. I offered to leave, but they said they would help me as if I were pulling teeth. The kitchen and systems all look efficient enough to handle good throughput, but the kids working there couldn't care less. Whoever invested in this needs to have more passion for the product, and for inspiring good work by employees. Food was great, but the service - meh!
