We were sorely disappointed?the Southern barbecue was dry and tasteless, the waffle fries were stone cold and limp and the baked beans tasted as though they came straight out of a can. My husband got ribs and said that they were average at best. The potato salad was mush and the Caesar salad was bland. We will not return.

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: Poor quality food

I hardly ever write reviews but I was so impressed with Dickey's I just had to. The food is great of course, and they have 4 different sauces that you can put on your food so it's just how you want it. The service is excellent, the staff is friendly and accommodating, they make sure you have everything you could ever need. It's a great place for families, really laid back, you certainly can feel good about bringing kids here.

I was so excited to find out that there is a good old fashioned BBQ place in Durham when I moved here. The food is really authentic like its been cooking all day, but comes out fast. I got my food in under 3 minutes, no joke. And everything was delicious, there wasn't a thing that I would have changed about it. When you go, you have to get the hush puppies, they are cooked to order from real dough, not little preformed frozen things. I will definitely be back again and again!

So I could tell you about the laid back atmosphere and the great service at Dickey's, but I'm a guy and the most important thing about this place is how great the food is. You can really tell that they do use fresh meat and smoke it themselves (I could even see them "loading the pit", as they say, for myself) because its so juicy and tender, definitely not cooked ahead of time and all dried out like other places. I liked that you could request certain cuts of beef or pork (I like mine real lean, and that's exactly the kind of brisket I got). I got my fill on 2 sides AND hushpuppies, which made me really happy. Men will definitely leave Dickey's full and satisfied.

Oh, but I did succumb to the kid in me and got some free ice cream. I mean, who can refuse free ice cream?

Pros: real hickery smoked meat

Dickey's is a great alternative to all the other fast food places out there today. I brought my family in last Sunday (kids eat free on Sunday!!) and everyone, even my 2 year old, left happy and full. They have healthy sides like corn on the cob, green beans and mac and cheese that our kids love and we felt good giving to them (but they do have lots of yummy fried food for the big kids!). The adults got our fill on pulled pork, ribs, brisket, chicken, and much more! It was nice to sit down at a real table, but the service was fast (really fast) and the staff was very accommodating for our large group. We will be back next week with our friends!

We love to go to Dickey's. The food is really good, portions size is good. Prices are very reasonable, under $10. I love the Brisket. Kids eat free on Sundays, what a deal!

The barbecue is great. Excellent variety. The scene is calm and it is a very kid friendly environment. The serving staff is very accommodating, and quickly corrected my order when it was brought out wrong. They need more chicken varieties on the menu, but if you enjoy pork, this is the place to get some good ole BBQ.
