After reading the reviews on here, I was a little hesitant. But it wasn't as bad as some people made it out to be. I cook a LOT of BBQ myself personally and quite frankly, I've had worse at many other places. I don't know if I would say Dickie's is the best, but they definitely weren't bad. I am probably a little biased in that I think I put out pretty good BBQ myself so it really takes a lot for something to stand out and grab my attention. I snuck a peek in their cooler and the briskets and meat selection was pretty impressive overall. There was nothing cheap or subpar in the meat selection. I had the brisket/turkey/jalapeno sausage combo plate with the cabbage slaw and Jalapeno beans. The brisket was pretty good but needed a little something to make it pop, the turkey was definitely juicy and the sausage was very good, not overly spicy and tasted good with the cheese mixed in which honestly I wasn't expecting that. Brisket could have been a little more juicy for my taste, but it wasn't bad. The sauce selection was ok, nothing overly hot or sweet, but a welcome compliment to my meat choices. I didn't particularly care for the texture of the beans, as they seemed a little hard and not cooked long enough to be tender for my taste, but they wasn't horrible. The slaw was actually pretty good, crispy and not drenched in sauce to a liquid like state..just a nice flavorable and crunchy consistency. Might have used a bit more tanginess for my taste but was very good. The wife had the okra and it was on point..crispy on the outside , tender and tasty on the inside. Her turkey was same as mine, moist and tender. Overall, the place was clean and small seating but was nice. The girls serving were very nice and answered any questions I had, showed me food choices I asked about and were very polite. Now the cost...for portion size, I would say it's a tad expensive, but certainly it wasn't the most expensive, I've actually paid more at Zaxby's for way less. For the $40 we spent, I would like to see the portion size increased a tad, at least make it a meal. I left still feeling a little hungry and I am not a huge eater by any means. As a side note, looking at reviews on here, I think the man responding to reviews should become a little more invested, as his response to almost every negative review might as well be rubber stamped, it is literally word for word the same response everytime. As a consumer, that would make me even more angry if I felt I had a bad experience. I know my customers want a personal response when they have an issue and take it to heart when I respond to them personally addressing their specific concerns good or bad.

I honestly enjoy eating at Dickey's BBQ. However, this specific location does not reflect the standard of food quality and service I've come to expect. I've only left one bad review prior to this one in 10 years... Pros They were open? The employee was friendly Cons - Most of the menu items were unavailable - The items that were available had issues -The Brisket was cold, I'm assuming it was left over from yesterday and chilled overnight. -The green beans had no seasoning - The employee hinted to being late for work and didn't have the time to prepare before opening. - It took 15 minutes for the employee to even take my order. I'm from Texas and have been cooking BBQ for 20 plus years, and Dickey's is normally a decent substitute while I am traveling. This location has definitely made me think twice about eating a Dickey's moving forward.

My family and I used to love coming to this Dickie’s BBQ location but it has gone completely downhill. We spent over $50 dollars on food and some it it was barely editable. The chicken and baked potato were so dry they were hard to eat. We were they only patrons the entire 45 minutes to 1 hour we were there and after we ordered the lady working forgot what we ordered. The ice cream machine was broken. They did not have some sides and it took over 20 minutes to get our food.

This was our second time stopping at this Dickey’s on our way to Orlando. Back in December our experience was as we expected from Dickey’s and was on point. This time not so much. The online ordering system was turned off and when we arrived at the restaurant we quickly discovered why. It is apparent the restaurant owner is cutting costs. Half the regular menu items were not available, they didn’t have the Big Yellow Cups only the small ones. They didn’t have the dinner rolls and said they changed the menu to no longer offer them and instead now offer Texas toast. Their version of Texas Toast was a slice of white bread 😳. The BBQ beans were runny and the brisket was fatty. If they are in financial distress then they need to go ahead and shut down. Those of us that travel and frequent Dickey’s across the country know better. This is the worst Dickey’s experience that we have encountered and we will not be back.

John, Corbin and David were wonderful. They were the calm in the stormy day. Great food, fun and bright service. I got a 6 rib fall off the bone with Carolina BBQ. Had the chance to try my partners dickey's anniversary meal with a side of waffle fries. Those were great as well. To top it off, unlimited vanilla frozen yogurt. If you're feeling a little low, stop in for some sweet bbq love and care :>
