Was in Dickinson visiting family, and they ordered us take out from here (Brisket, Sausage, Potato Salad, Coleslaw & Baked Beans). The sausage was the best I ever had, and I am not a huge sausage fan! Potato salad was mustard base which isn't my favorite, but the baked beans and coleslaw where fantastic. Brisket was okay, nothing crazy special... More

I went there for lunch today and ordered the rib plate with a side of rice and turnip greens. The ribs seem to be either boiled baked Steamwd, with no true BBQ smoke flavor. The sides will much much better then the barbecue. I found the lunch plate to be very pricey for the quality of food and the portion... More

We stumbled upon this place heading from Galveston to Houston. What a find. We were greeted as "new" customers with a sampler of meats. It felt like being part of the Dickensian BBQ family! Thanks!

Wonderful fresh and delicious! I love the turkey avocado melt! The banana pudding is also delicious! And don't forget the fried okra!

The best shrimp po'boy anywhere including NOLA. Pulled pork is excellent. Texas Chili yum. Gumbo as good as I make. Homemade Ranch Dressing is spectacular. And a bar.

The service at Dickinson Bar-B-Que & Steakhouse is excellent. The young man who takes orders was friendly, patient and good. It's a nice barbeque restaurant on FM 517 not far from 45. We enjoyed sitting on this patio. I found the barbeque to be average. I ordered the sliced brisket sandwich and my wife had a baked potato. I wasn't... More

Maybe it's just me but I was not impressed with the quality of BBQ. Everyone else seems to like it but it just didn't do it for myself and my spouse. Very friendly staff though!! I wanted to like it but ribs tasted more steamed that grill cooked. Unfortunately I won't return as there are too many excellent BBQ options... More

Love the service of this team here. The BBQ is reliably good quality and the side dishes are my favorite along with the fresh hot rolls! A manager always comes by the table to check on service and satisfaction and this shows the dedication this team has to its customers.

I've been going around to various BBQ joints in the area. Hands down, these are my favorite spare ribs around. They beat the pants off of any in the area, including Rudy's, Pappa's, Ryan's, Red River BBQ, Logan's Steakhouse, etc. They use a dry rub. The ribs come out with a nice pink color and a good bark on top.... More
