“Good variety of BBQ items with free ice cream for dessert!”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

If you are looking for a simply, delicious bbq dinner Dickeys is the place to go in Ventura. I typically get the rib plate which comes with two sides and a roll. Its a good value for $13 and plenty of food. Be sure to save room for the free vanilaa ice cream cone dispenser.
I like to mix the original bbq sauce with the spicy for just a little added kick. Tastes great on the tanglers which are basicially thin onion rings.

“Great BBQ”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Finally! After living here for 27 years, this native Texan finally has a decent barbecue place to go to. The beef brisket is great - tender, and chopped before your eyes. The sausage is wonderful and spicy, the beans great, and the fried okra is stupendous- just like my mother made. The owners are friendly and helpful with customers not familiar with Texas style barbecue. There is sweet ice tea and non sweetened tea, and free ice cream, which you never see at a restaurant anymore. Hope this place makes it,because the food is just too darn good.

“Texas style barbecue in Ventura”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Texas style barbecue in Ventura. There is plenty of brisket and ribs but not a tri tip in sight. I have been to the restaurant three times since it opened and have tried the ribs and the brisket sandwich. My daughter prefers the sandwich that has brisket and pulled pork. The ribs are tender and not dry.

The brisket sandwiches are great, the brisket is chopped when you order the sandwich. They have pickles and onions and will top it with barbecue sauce. I prefer mine without barbecue sauce.

There is a soft serve ice cream dispenser where a cone can made after the meal. I have seen people mix the soft serve ice cream into their root beer for a root beer float.

The restaurant is part of a chain that has a restaurant in the American airlines terminal in the Dallas Fort Worth airport. This is an American airlines hub and we plan our flights so that we can purchase sandwiches and bring them on the next leg of our journey. Much better than the meals that can be purchased aboard the plane.
