Wanted Hot Thomas on Memorial Day but it was closed. Tried JR's. Same. Decided on Dickey's and weren't disappointed! Different than Hot Thomas and good in a different way. We like the way that we could put our own sauce on the meat instead of...More

To tell the truth, I was not expecting much when we arrived. A converted service building located in a mini shopping plaza did not lend itself to an image of good eats. I was wrong. Upon entering, the atmosphere is warm and inviting and filled...More

This is one of my favorite BBQ stops in the area. The pork is delicious and I love their sides. The spicy pintos are my favorite! If you want quick and delicious BBQ, this is a perfect stop.

Delicious. My grandson just graduated from HS and we had his party catered. Everyone enjoyed the wonderful BBQ.

Dickey's has few frills, but great BBQ. There are many side choices as well. The fried okra and coleslaw are good. Atmosphere is fairly rustic, but food is quick and tasty.

This is kind of like a fast food BBQ place. You will get your food quickly, but pretty much every veggie is fried. The kid's menu isn't great- chicken nuggets and a BBQ sandwich from what I remember BUT as an alternative to the other...More

My barbecue guru once told me, "If you can't see the heat, don't eat the meat." Meaning, if the place doesn't cook the meat outdoors, with wood and all the glorious smoke thereof, then don't bother. Lemme just say, I don't see no pit out...More
