Tried to visit for lunch on a weekday afternoon. The store was closed with an eviction notice taped to the front door. I love Dickey's in other locations and was disappointed to miss it here

No complaints here. Meal was good and the place was clean. The staff were very friendly. One of the few places you can find BBQ that isn't saturated in vinegar. Thumbs up!

Pulled pork was kind of mushy. Beans and potato salad were nothing special. Curbefd my hunger, prices were high to me compared to real BBQ places.

We went here for a change of pace. We both like barbecue. Absolutely nothing special about the food or service. The restaurant seemed unclean when we were there.

We appreciate you taking the time to write feedback - however - not sure you selected the correct location. Our drinks are $2.25. The prices you cited are not for our location and are much higher.

Just standing outside the restaurant you are overwhelmed by the tantalizing smell of smoked meat. Inside the restaurant, you place your order at the counter and it's brought to your table. There's a self-serve soda and iced-tea area. There's also a free self-serve ice-cream machine....More

I haven't eaten at a Dickey's Barbecue since I was much younger, about 100 years ago, in Texas, so I was surprised to find one in North Carolina. The food was better than I remember form my childhood and the cashier/manager came around to ask...More
