For years we have looked forward to stopping at Dickey's on our way through Lynchburg, but we were really disappointed with the food today. The pulled pork had almost no flavor and the "barbecue beans" seemed just like canned pork and beans. The bread is still tasty, for what that's worth, and our dog was very pleased that we left...

The food was good (as usual) and the service was fast. The restaurant looked like they had just had a large crowd as it was not as clean as I would have expected.

The food is just ok. It was a big disappointment when I looked at the prices. It is not a place that I will go back to.

Several different sauces 3 flavors I believe and all great. Many different options incld sandwiches and platters- it is good enough next time we will go with a larger platter so we can bring home for lunch the next day. For comparing to fast foods it may be 2.00 more for a meal but its lots more and healthier food.... More

Got a 2 meat plate to-go. brisket and pork, both were cooked well and not dried out. Taste was good, not overly smoked or seasoned. The BBQ sauce was good.

We had lunch there and did enjoy the food. Love that you can self serve your barbecue sauce from a big warm vat. The hot was my favorite. They give you a nice portion of meat, generous. Lots of sides to choose from. The restaurant was clean. My only negative comment is the soft serve machine wasn't working....we always look... More

We ordered online which was very convenient and easy. It gave us an estimated pick up time so we weren't waiting. We had never eaten here before and were pleasantly surprised. I am a beef brisket fanatic and I LOVED IT!! I loved how tender the meat was without the sauce and I loved it with the sauce. They offer... More

This is a chain so you may have seen it in other places. Dickies does have great barbecue (although I prefer other barbecue sauces), bye I find the food to be a little pricey. You expect fast food prices but end up paying sit down restaurant prices. For instance they have a family meal pack that runs $50 or $60... More

Love Dickey's...they should have them everywhere. It always tastes great and is a good value. Love that you even get free ice cream.
