Several different sauces 3 flavors I believe and all great. Many different options incld sandwiches and platters- it is good enough next time we will go with a larger platter so we can bring home for lunch the next day. For comparing to fast foods it may be 2.00 more for a meal but its lots more and healthier food.... More

Got a 2 meat plate to-go. brisket and pork, both were cooked well and not dried out. Taste was good, not overly smoked or seasoned. The BBQ sauce was good.

We had lunch there and did enjoy the food. Love that you can self serve your barbecue sauce from a big warm vat. The hot was my favorite. They give you a nice portion of meat, generous. Lots of sides to choose from. The restaurant was clean. My only negative comment is the soft serve machine wasn't working....we always look... More

We ordered online which was very convenient and easy. It gave us an estimated pick up time so we weren't waiting. We had never eaten here before and were pleasantly surprised. I am a beef brisket fanatic and I LOVED IT!! I loved how tender the meat was without the sauce and I loved it with the sauce. They offer... More

This is a chain so you may have seen it in other places. Dickies does have great barbecue (although I prefer other barbecue sauces), bye I find the food to be a little pricey. You expect fast food prices but end up paying sit down restaurant prices. For instance they have a family meal pack that runs $50 or $60... More

Love Dickey's...they should have them everywhere. It always tastes great and is a good value. Love that you even get free ice cream.

Don't pass this place up if you like BBQ. It is good. I always look forward to coming to Lynchburg for another opportunity for a good meal here.

We visited Dickey's for the first time this evening after passing by the restaurant for years. I had a pork sandwich and my wife had beef brisket. Sides of green beans, fried okra and cold slaw. Very generous portions of meat and sides. I tried 3 different BBQ sauces and found the hot to be the best. Did not care... More

My wife ate there for dinner one day. She had the brisket and pulled pork. Both were very tasty and juicy with a nice smoke flavor. The sides of baked potato and veggies were very good. Because of gluten I just had a cup of chopped pork. It was also tasty, juicy and smokey flavored. I'd I mention the free... More

Went out for supper on a Monday evening to get the daily special. The bbq sandwich and two sides with drnk. It was all great as is usually the case at Dickey's. My big disappointed is how the price is climbing!! A $10 special is what keeps us from visiting more often. Oh well, I guess you have to pay... More
