My husband and I went for supper. We were the first in line, followed by another gentleman. We waited in line while two employees bickered back and forth. They didn't even look at us, never said a word. We waited for 10 minutes and left. We went to Don Julios instead. If you want bad customer service, Dickeys is the... More

This place needs more or better-trained staff, or both. We walked in on a Friday night. There were only two other families there, and both already had their food. I first tried to order the chicken breast, but was told they were all out. I asked for turkey instead, but that was sold old, too. At this point I asked... More

It disappoints me to have to give a bad review to Dickeys because I really wanted this to be a go-to restaurant for my family when we do go out BUT the meat either has bones in it or big chunks of fat every time we go and that is a deal- breaker for me!! Not to mention the ventilation... More

Simple no frills decor, but the food is what you are really here for. It takes you longer to decide what to order than to get your food. The orders are placed lunch counter style, so services is not an issue. The menu is gracious and detailed. Portions are plentiful. I was not nuts about the green beans with the... More

Went for a Dinner take out order at Drive up window. Order was taken in a timely manner, but it made me wonder if only one employee was taking and filling the order as I waited quite some time before anyone came to the window. Once home, I found I was missing a Coleslaw, so not thrilled about that... Food... More

We ordered the kids brisket sandwich ! Since we had pies at another restaurant .they were delicious, loved the bread! They had 3 different types of BBQ sauces ( sweet, hot and spicy, regular). Very friendly staff!

Pet peeve with any pulled pork is biting into chunks of fat . We've eaten here twice and that was not the case either time. Wide range of sides including fried okra, Mac and cheese, green beans and waffle fries. Daily specials make this a good value.

Homestyle barbecuing at its best! A great selection of meats from ribs and brisket to chicken and turkey and everything in between. A very small place so we try to go during off hours. They also deliver locally. The side dishes were very good as well. The free, soft-serve ice cream was a nice touch.

As soon as you open your car door you know what's up, BBQ smoke smells so good you can't say "no". Generous portions of meat and salty fries. Manager was gracious and asked how we were, always nice when someone takes the time to ask. Going back soon.

First trip to Dickey's BBQ Pit, but will not be our last trip. Our family got the Thursday special (pulled pork, sausage, two sides and drink for $10. Have plenty of food for our family, including our 15 year old, 6'2", 265 lbs offensive lineman son. I know people say BBQ sauce is for poor cue, but Dickey's three sauces... More
