Wife and I eat frequently at Dickey's in Southern Pines and Durham (now closed). We've always had good food and service. For some reason, the service was slow and non-friendly on this particular day in Southern Pines. No smiles, good greetings, ... I guess everyone...More

have tried this a couple of times and have been disappointed. Floors can be sticky, food is so-so, and atmosphere is non existent. It is cheap so you get what you pay for. We go to other places for barbecue.

Had brisket with mac and cheese, jalapeño baked beans for sides. Everything was top notch. The dipping sauces are very well crafted. If you like barbecue, you should fit fight in.

Whenever we go visit family in Southern Pines, we always get Dickey's for dinner! Love the pulled pork and brisket, and their vinegar based sauce is my favorite! Their sides are delicious too! Always our first choice for delicious take out!

This is a chain/franchise and each one can be different. I would not recommend this location. Made us wait to even take our order. Do not waste your time much less your money!More

Dickey's Barbecue Pit is a true American success story. In 1941, Travis Dickey, a World War I veteran, opened the first Dickey's Barbecue Pit in Dallas, Texas. Dickey was a true Texas character blessed with the gift of gab and the love of authentic, slow-smoked barbecue. In the beginning, Dickey's Barbecue Pit was truly a family operation with Travis working the block and Miss Ollie Dickey serving sandwiches. Space on the restaurant sign was rented out to help pay the start-up costs for the restaurant and the menu was limited to beef brisket, pit hams, barbecue beans, potato chips, beer, bottled milk and sodas. Brothers Roland and T.D. Dickey took over the business in 1967, continuing their father's legacy of quality, hickory smoked signature meats. Under the direction of the Dickey brothers, Dickey's Barbecue Pit expanded throughout the Dallas Fort Worth area and quickly became known throughout Texas for mouthwatering hickory-smoked barbecue, popular catered events and the iconic Big Yellow Cups. Franchising began in 1994 after loyal guests and barbecue fanatics demanded more locations. Today with over 530 locations in 43 states, loyal guests are what keep Dickey's thriving in every community. The brand has come a long way from Travis Dickey's first location. But, some things never change. Dickey's Barbecue Pit still slow smokes all meats on-site just the same way they did in 1941. The menu features beef brisket, pulled pork, St. Louis style ribs, polish sausage, spicy cheddar sausage, smoked turkey, and marinated chicken, with an extensive array of homestyle sides from jalapeño beans to macaroni and cheese. Buttery rolls are served with every meal along with complimentary ice cream. And just like always, kids eat free on Sunday.
