The food itself is just average. It's tender and served hot but is lacking some serious flavor and smoke or bark. The sides were very good and the waffle fries arent cooked until you order so they are guaranted fresh.

I still gave it 4/5 because the food was still good despite lacking some flavor but the establishment was extremely clean and the ladies behind the counter provided great service.

Like most chain barbeque places ( Sonny's etc ) the food is fair to good , the sauce is passable ( the hot is very hot ) the dill pickle barrel is pretty cool and the sweet tea is okay - not the best barbeque in the world ( south ) but pretty good for the non barbequephile

Thank mike s

The sides are very good . The Brisket and pork ribs are very tender , lacking flavor and no smoke /BBQ aroma or tast . Even with a nice outter bark on the brisket ,no smoke ring or flavor . The place was clean , good people /service . Free ice cream when you are done. Ten years in Texas and doing my own BBQ at home I can say the meat was good quality but needs time in a smoker/BBQ not the oven.

We went there with another family, 10 people in total. I was amazed with the amount of food that the XL family meal included. Kids under 12 yrs old eat free on Sundays. The mac n cheese was very cheesy and tasty! Ordered beef brisket, pulled pork, pork ribs, which were all good.

They have 3 BBQ sauces that you can use, original, sweet, and spicy. Drinks are bottomless, and they have a soft serve ice cream machine to top off your meal.

The tables are moveable, so we put 3 tables together.

Granted, I'm not exposed to fabulous bbq on a regular basis, but I was very pleased with the food at Dickey's. The prices seemed reasonable for the amount of food that came with the meal. I had two entrees- pulled pork and pork ribs, and both were fantastic. Green bean side was lame, but the waffle fries were great. I left stuffed and happy. Note- free ice cream cones if you still have room at the end of the meal. The restaurant is nothing fancy- just tables and chairs, no ambiance, but you don't go to a chain for the atmosphere. Give it a try- your stomach will thank you.
