The pulled pork here is heavenly. The crispy texture and full smokey flavor makes this easily the best bbq in the county. The portion sizes are generous, too. You just can't go wrong here.

Stopped in here with some friends for a quick bite and some beverages. I had the pork ribs with homemade potato salad and one of their craft beers on tap. Great place and friendly service

I was rudely turned away at another restaurant due to our large party of 13 and Southbay Dickerson's was just around the corner. The hostess was more than welcoming and we were glad to eat here. The food was amazing and the waitstaff was incredibly friendly. Next time I am in the area I will come again!

I went here for take-out after trying another place that is closed (forever). It's a funny little place in a dead part of town after 5 on a weekday. There's an adjacent bar that you enter from another street. I got a combo with 2 meats, 2 sides and cornbread. The idea being that it would feed 2 people. I... More

The building is an old automotive repair shop with old garage doors still there, not very nice place, not much parking. Wanted to give it a try just because I like smoked meats. Well, when you walk in the air is heavy with a smoke smell, too much smoke smell, air is thick like it could make some sick that... More

Searching for a great BBQ place since we moved here from the south, this place started off right. Warm, friendly service and a huge smoker behind the counter. The musky aroma of smoking meat filled the room with anticipation. Then we were served and there was no flavor........at all....barely even the pork of the ribs I was eating. Tried their... More

I went here for lunch with a friend. The special of the day was a Caesar salad with chicken. My friend ordered a regular salad with beef. The salads were identical. My 'Caesar' had tomatoes on it, no cheese and VERY spicy chicken. I had asked if the chicken was spicy and was told that it wasn't. I thought the... More

This is a really good BBQ joint in downtown Olympia, one street off the main drag. The real wood smoker is right behind the service counter and the beer cooler is well stocked. Even though the sign out front is a pink neon pig, don't call it that.

enjoyed the BBQ chicken as a lunch special. Corn bread was great, liked that they had peach cobbler as a side item on the menu/ It was wonderful (Ask for whipped cream to go with it!) Friends enjoyed brisket and ribs.

Thank akeusch
