I can forgive slow service when a place is crowded, but this place is slow when not busy. Food is OK.

I should have known something was wrong when I walked into a Texas BBQ join to hear "Tears for Fears" on the sound system... I've been eating at Dickey's locations in DFW since the mid-80s. It has always been good, reliable smoked meats at a reasonable price. This locations has dumbed down the menu (no two-meat, three-meat dinners, no jalapeno... More

We went there at 11:30 on a weekday and expected a wait, but there was only one other person there. We each got 3 ribs and one side and a drink and our total was $25! The ribs were not tender, but the sauce was good. Way too expensive for a quick lunch.

I like Dickie's bbq. For me I think sometimes it taste more like roast beef instead of smoked bbq. It's good tho.

It was so so. Not the best I have had from Dickeys. Not a lot of options for sides, meat was fatty. The place was clean though.

Great atmosphere with awesome barbecue. Loved the loaded baked potatoes stuffed with your choice of meat. The ribs and pulled pork are always pleasing. Great sides that hit the spot.

One of the few Dickey's where you can get a Frito Pie. Start with a small bag of Fritos, then cover in chopped brisket, beans (I say go for jalapeno), sauce, and cheese. Excellent. As for Dickey's in general: Food is good for mass produced BBQ. Sausage is good, but hot links are even better. Brisket is moist, but sometimes... More

I used to love Dickey's Bar-B-Que. But in the last few years, they have started to take a lot of short cuts to either save money or decrease the time it takes to cook food. They now use frozen vegetables instead of fresh for the okra and canned beans for the baked beans. Heck, I can do that at home.... More

I've been to several locations recently, and barBQ is always consistent and delicious! We love the vast choice of side dishes. Like I stated above, best banana pudding ever! Keep up the good work!

This restaurant had always had excellent customer service and great food.... but the last time I visited the employees who were there didn't care about customer service and were very rude.. It was off-putting, especially since I'd frequently visit because it gives me points on my Southwest Rapid Rewards.. but after the last time of poor customer service and the... More
