Food is absouletly amazing but our service was horrible. She did not put in our appetizer and never came back after food to refill drinks. Someone else delivered the check. Felt very rushed out the door.

Love this place. The folks there are very friendly and consistent. The food is always spot-on and the sauces, especially the hot sauce, is really exceptional.

This place is fantastic, great food and extremely friendly/nice staff. If I lived closer I’d eat here as much as possible. Gigi was our server and was super sweet to us. If you’re not eating at Dick’s BBQ you’re wrong.

Great bbq
Great place for bbq. Large portions, reasonable price, fun people watching on the patio. A bit noisy.
jobrecht via - Sep 13, 2019
4 Stars for service.. 3 Stars for food. Not the best BBQ I’ve had. The brisket was dry and texture and taste was like roast beef. The ribs, were dry and didn’t have that classic smoke taste. The smoked chicken wings were okay. The green beans were okay and the slaw was good. The service was outstanding, very friendly folks!

This is supposed to be texas style bbq. Maybe it is. The thing about texas is its big, and there are more mediocre bbq places in texas than good, but its the GREAT places in Texas that people think of when they think of texas bbq. Texas style bbq gets dried out soooooo easily, their style of brisket ends up with a flavorful cut of me ... read more
