I decided to eat here before my flight and it was an excellent choice. They cut your barbecue right in front of you and have a great selection of sides. I had the big barbecue sandwich with original sauce, as well as the barbecue baked beans and baked potato casserole. It was all delicious. The sauce and quality of meat... More

This is a fast option before taking a long flight. I had pork, potato and coleslaw. This was ok for the cheap price. The restaurant was crowed but I managed to find a spot to sit

Great to find a Texas BBQ in the airport terminal C. Had the $9.99 special pulled pork sandwich with side and drink. Beats the proximate fast food restaurants. Not the best BBQ on the planet but what do you expect when waiting for your departing flight? Adjacent McD's gives everyone free WI-FI.

My wife and I stopped by and got the loaded baked potato with chopped beef!! What a good choice!! The beef was tender and very tasty and the potato was huge, so we were able to share. The 2 servers were the best, very friendly and glad to provide some extra BBQ sauce, butter, etc!! We thoroughly enjoyed our meal!!... More

A must stop for their Texas BBQ brisket before you catch your plane or if you just landed and wanted a taste of the Lone Star State. Prices are reasonable for an airport restaurant. Fast and easy place to dine. Dickey's is a major BBQ chain in Texas and other parts of the Southwest but their BBQ is the real... More

No airport restaurant is what I would consider fine dining but the quality of the food at Dickey's was below what I would expect. Meat was too fatty. Mac and Cheese was about to celebrate a birthday. I've eaten there before and the food was much better in the past but this time was not impressive.

Flying from Florida to New Mexico we switched SouthWest air planes in Dallas, saw the unique long line at Dickey's BBQ and chose to go for it. Had the 3 meat plate with 2 sides for $15-ish and added a box of $5 fried rice from next door and the 2 of us had a wonderful lunch for $20. All... More

I ate at the Terminal "C" Dickey's, ordering the Chicken Plate special, $10 for a half chicken, two vegetable sides, and a drink. Not a bad deal, the chicken was nice and tender, but there wasn't enough BBQ sauce, so it was pretty dry. I picked the jalapeno beans and green beans with bacon. Neither was especially good - the...

Stop here when in Terminal A due to few other choices. Dickie's is a long term Texas barbecue and is normally very good, as it is here.
