We liked going to this restaurant, but left the last time we went there. Disinterested, poor service. Plus they were out of bread! Like my husband said, they are right next to a Wal-Mart. Send someone over to get some if you have to. Sometimes restaurants start out pretty good, but then they get lazy and start cutting corners. I don't think we will be making it back to Dickey's any time soon.

Update: We've gone back to this restaurant for the summer of 2011 and have been treated better in these visits. They seem to have gotten rid of the foreign workers and now have college aged kids working. Based on these last two visits I would probably give it 4 stars, but only upped my review to 3 stars based on our previous experience. The college kids are much more helpful and friendly.

Dickey's is a great BBQ pit for families! The food isn't world-class but it hits the spot and the Sweet tea is phenomenal! There is free ice-cream for the kids and the game is always on. I love eating here with my family!

My husband and I LOVE Dickey's. It's definitely not the closest barbecue to us, but we head out to Dickey's at least once a month, anyway. Yummy sausage and tender brisket. Excellent sauce, and you can get a couple of different kinds. I like the sweet, and my husband likes the regular. The sides are delicious too. And you can get sweet tea. Free icecream comes with every buffet.

I am a regular customer to the Dickeys location on Arapahoe. We came in July 4th at about 6:30 for a family meal (2 kids, 2 adults).

Firstly,they were out of at least 4 meats.They only had chicken, sausage and and hot links. The cook serving the meat said it was busy, therefore the issue. I would assume when it is busy one could cvook some more meat. Apparently, this was a bridge too far.

The person in front of me had a very long conversation with the cook about the lack of meats and he didn't get much information. I am not sure if the cook or his helper understood English. It was shrug this, shrug that. Since I overheard this whole conversation it was pointless to berate the cook and his poor service again.

The most shocking part was the actual restaurant. We sat over in a booth by the door. I noticed a lot of trays and food sitting on abandoned tables everywhere.

I decided to take a stroll around the place and counted at least 16, again 16 uncleared, unbussed tables. Food, drinks, trash etc was all over each of these tables and floors. It was truly disgusting. One could hardly find a place to even sit!

I also noticed two employees come out twice and looked around. They looked around and did nothing and headed back to the kitchen I assume to let someone else clean up the mess and hide.

This is inexcusable. I worked in restaurants long ago when I was in college and that is grounds for firing in my book. The store must have extremely weak management to allow this situation to develop and then also to allow employees to completely ignore the dining area disaster.

I will be honest I have never seen anything like it, ever. It looked like a hurricane went through the dining room.

I also wonder why meats are wrapped in plastic under hot heat lamps. I would assume that plastic molecules are leaching into the meats which is against health codes and could lead to a lawsuit. one could wrap them in foil to keep the meat hot and juicy w/o the use of plastic.

The sides looked old and very greasy.

Not sure if I will go back to that location again.

Pros: inexpensive, not crowded, casual

Just like their cups say they are Lip Smakin, Finger Lickin, Rib Ticklin, Knee Slappin, Foot Stompin, Great Tastin.

More Important for us parents - $0.99 Kids Meal that actually fill the kid up with something healthy.

I can't get enough of the Brisket & the Ribs make my husband a happy man!

If the great food isn't enough to keep us coming back that fact that the prices beat all the competition is!

Pros: Inexpensive Kid Meals, Free Ice Cream Cone, Great Locations

Finally, real BBQ in Colorado. I've been searching for years and now the search is over. The brisket is by far the best in Colorado and the sauce leaves me speechless. I like the cafeteria style self service, which saves on time and free ice cream.

In Short
Patrons walk in and casually order at the counter, then settle at one of the wooden tables. Popular for a quick lunch as well as a full dinner, the menu offers choices in meats: beef brisket, pulled pork and ribs,…
