I frequent this one for lunch and I have always received excellent service and food. Ribs are my favorite but their sides are delicious too. Love me some fried okra! I have always left happy and satisfied.

Dickey's BBQ is nothing "special". It smells AWESOME when you first walk in, but falls short after that. It's merely average BBQ - - not much "smoke flavor" in the pulled pork, so needs the BBQ sauce to taste like BBQ. The "Onion Tangles" were good, but everything else was just "OK". The free ice cream isn't very good - - soft serve, vanilla only, grainy texture and too sweet for my palate.

Dickey's Barbecue Pit is a chain of restaurants based in Texas. This particular Dickey's has good Barbecue but beware the poor service. When it opened the service was excellent as the owner was often on premises and personally got involved to ensure every Guest left full and happy. He has since purchased another Dickey's and moved away. The staff has been reduced, and the Management is incompetent and has significantly gone downhill. The Management changes frequently and at times can be downright rude! A huge issue is they frequently run out of certain barbecued meats and side dishes so if you come in expecting a specific menu item you may be disappointed. Phil's Barbecue in San Marcos or Mike's Barbecue in nearby Escondido are much better choices.

My son and I stopped into Dickey's Barbecue Pit for an early lunch. It is in a strip mall near CostCo and Walmart. A lot bigger on the inside than it appears on the outside. Very welcoming staff who explained all the eating options. Nice part is YOU add the BBQ sauce you want after getting the meal so you can pick the style nad taste you want. Big portions. Also a neat thing is they have a frozen ice cream machine that is free for all to try.
