Grabbed a bunch of BBQ and even some veggie options for an event that needed catered at our 1860s Waterfall Retreat. It was a hit, easy to work with the staff and good eats!

Way too much fat on the ribs. The small amount of meat had the texture of pot roast and almost no smoked flavor. Don't waste your money.

I like a good BBQ and this place did not disappoint. This is a great change of pace from the “heavy” Amish meals served in this area.

Dickey's has started running ads in this area, so we decided to check it out. It is located in a strip mall across the street from the outlet mall. I looked the menu up online and it looked good, so why not. First of all...More
