Dickey’s Barbecue Pit BBQ Restaurant Review


Dickey's Barbecue Pit has been around since 1941.  For over 70 years, they have been offering a selection of signature meats, home style sides and a tangy barbecue sauce.  They season the meats and slow cook them on-site at each restaurant.


Dickey's Barbecue offers a great selection of Barbecue Sandwiches, barbecue meat plates (including beef brisket, pulled pork, Virginia Style Ham, BBQ chicken breast, turkey breast, polish sausage, cheddar sausage and pork ribs).

Their sides include barbecue baked beans, creamy coleslaw, potato salad, jalapeno bans, green beans with bacon (hmmmmm bacon), baked potato casserole, ceasar salad, chips, mac and cheese, fried onion tanglers, fried okra, and waffle fries

They also offer salads and bakers including a giant stuffed baker (with or without meat), a pork and tangler tater, beef and cheese baker, a garden salad, smokehouse salad, and a chicken Caesar salad.


Prices at Dickey's Barbecue range from $3.99 for a BBQ Sandwich to $11.99 for a Rib Plate.




I went to Dickey's Barbecue in Orem, Utah to get food for my family.  We ordered a selection of sandwiches and sides, including Big Barbecue Sandwiches (brisket and pulled pork).  I also purchased a Westerner with spicy cheddar sausage and brisket along with various sides, including the beans, mac & cheese, waffle iron fries, baked potato casserole, creamy coleslaw and the barbecue beans.

While I was there, they provided me samples of the meat.  It was great to sample the pork, the brisket and the sausage before I ordered.  In the restaurant, they had several things that were pretty cool.  There was free ice cream and free pickles and they had the ability to get free drinks if you signed up for their text message list.

The food was pretty good for fast food BBQ.  I enjoyed the sandwiches a lot.  They provided the sauce in separate containers so if you ordered your food to go the bread didn't get soggy...pretty smart.

The sides were good as well.  I really enjoyed the slaw and the baked potato casserole.  The mac & cheese and beans and bacon were pretty good as well.  My family said that the waffle fries were delicious.  The barbecue beans were nothing special, but not bad.

  1. We ate at Dickies in Lufkin, Texas today, March 12, 2014.. I had guests and wanted them to eat some good barbeque. My husband and I eat at Dickies at least three to four times a month. Today, the service was terrible and the lady that waited on us as you walk in was RUDE!. The buns on the specials and the cornbread sandwich were refrigerator cold!. We asked her to reheat the cornbread bun (it was the coldest) and she rolled her eyes and said "we don't have a microwave. I can't believe it is cold." Let's just say, none of our sandwiches were warm enough to even melt the cheese. I was embarrassed for my guests. To top it off, there was no ice in the ice machine and no one got in a rush to fill it up. The lady, that was evidently in charge, was even rude to her workers. Let's just say, it will be a while before I go back. I was very disappointed. Customer service goes a LONG way.

    We ate at Dickies in Palmdale, CA about three weeks ago. The food was very disappointing: barely warm and overpriced for what you get. I ordered the half rack of bbq ribs and it came by itself. Side dishes were extra. There was no "rib plate". My husband ordered a dinner plate. There is no comparison to the nearby Famous Dave's. Dickies doesn't even offer corn or corn bread. Those two items are staples of a so-called "BBQ" restaurant. Also, their desserts are very commercialized and leave a lot to be desired. Save your money. This is not a genuine BBQ place, as to what most people are accustomed. The items offered are very limited. Food should be served hot.

  3. you got rid of hot links and pasta salad therefore you lost me as a customer

  4. Just ate at the new location in Mobile AL. The service was slow but even worse was the portions. I ordered the 3 meat plate and it came to around $15 and was left still hungry. The brisket and the pork was dry, I did enjoy the Spicy cheddar sausage. There are two many great bbque places here to spend that money on mediocrity.

  5. Had to spend $2.25 for a cup of water because there are NO healthy drink options. I probably won't be going back because of that!

  6. I ate at the dickies in round rock Texas very disappointed Iordered a chop beef sandwich and it must've been a day-old Definitely was not fresh on top of that along with a large drink I spent nine dollars for a biscuit sandwich small sandwich I won't be going back

    Just had bbq brisket sandwich. I was so excited there was a new bbq place. To my dismay it was the worst bbq I have ever had. I live in ohio sorry but City Bbq has you beat.

    My husband went in to get dinner to bring home. The girl doing the tangles was so busy talking, she completely ignored the timer going off and therefor we had burnt tangles that we couldn't even eat!!
    I called to talk to a manager and was told there wasn't one on duty.
    And the girl I spoke to was EXTREMELY rude!!!!

  9. Ate at Dickeys in Nederland Texas, Best food yet and sauce was great also. Young people working were friendly, neat and clean. Job well done,
    Thank you
