I had a craving for Baby Back ribs and was traveling. I wasn't familiar with Lubbock so I took a chance. I had never been to a Dickey's before so it was all new. No one waited on me for a while. They weren't going to close for two hours but all the employees seemed to be busy with other... More

Dickey's is a #4 on the BBQ 10 scale. It's nothing special. Period. It's certainly not bad at all but just average fast served BBQ.

The food is ok. Maybe a little overpriced! Meat was dry, turkey was the best of all meats. Sausage was average. We thought the meal was ok but nothing special

I love their chopped brisket sandwich. It's so tasty. I miss their whole pickles. Now this Dickeys only has the slices, but no big deal. Sides were good and hot. Got take out this time.

Used to eat at Dickey's often when we lived in the Metroplex. Glad to spot this one here in Lubbock. The barbecue was as good as we remembered. My chopped beef Hoagie sandwich was overflowing with tender beef which I covered with a very nice mild sauce. Hubby had their big sliced beef sandwich. Lots of sliced beef. And...ice cream... More

Some of the best BBQ you will find. Side items are limited and a bit mundane. There is a free soft-serve ice cream dispenser (vanilla only) for dine-in customers. Atmosphere is basic, but you're here for the meat, and it's SUPERB.

I had bought one of those Goupon coupons and paid $6 for a $10 food voucher. I hadn't been to Dickey's in quite a while and couldn't believe how much they are charging. C'mon, this is BBQ! The entire $10 went for a one-meat plate (a few slices of beef brisket, kinda fatty in some spots) and two sides--less-than-mediocre potato... More

We used to go to Dickey's all the time and the free ice cream was great. Price was decent. Then for some reason, we went about 4 times in a row and the quality and service had fallen dramatically. The bbq was not very good. I don't know what happened. Maybe it has gotten good again but I am going... More

We eat at Dickey's regularly. The turkey is excellent, brisket is moist. They have 3 different sauces which will suit anyone in the group. Good side options, excellent rolls.

Their food is good. There's definitely better barbecue to be found and it's a bit pricey, but they are very fast and have daily specials that are really good deals. This is a lunch-time place we frequent
