    Neil Cavuto was interviewing the CEO today and the food looked pretty scrumptious. I'm thinking I'll visit the place tomorrow evening.

    Opinions?

    They said they had locations all over the world which surprised me.

    I like Dickies. Some of the franchises have closed for lack of business and now the lockdowns. They are consistent and the food is good.

    No offense to anyone who likes it, but Dickies just doesn’t pass muster to me...

    But I am blessed to have several good-to-great BBQ joints within 20 minutes.

    REAL men don't use the word "scrumptious".
    or "lovely" for that matter.
    You can say "awesome" insteadLOL!

    We used to have one here in town up until about a year ago, and the food was better than any other Dickey's. It was also better than Famous Dave's and Mission BBQ. But new management came in and they ran it into the ground.

    Another BBQ (Loony Bin BBQ) opened in the spot. It was okay, but it was poorly managed and went boobs-up inside of a year.

    Have not seen Dickies in the UK, but I would round off the ribs with a Banana Split (by the Dickies)



    Ok - Eddie.

    I vaguely remember eating at a Dickeys years ago. I can’t remember when or where

    Say “no” to large chains. Find some local Q.

    We had a Dickies a mile away from here. Sadly, they lasted only a year before closing and having their assets seized by the city. I think a local outfit is going in there now. Meanwhile, mission has tided us over.
    I grew up under a strong, quiet, gentle man (my father) who believed that REAL men did and said whatever they wanted and what they thought was right and didn't ask permission of anyone else. REAL men.

    PS. I use "lovely" freely. And "beautiful." They are usually associated with my lovely wife or some instrument or music. [​IMG]

    For BBQ, it was just nasty, AND expensive.

    Their number one ingredient in everything seems to be sugar. Once was enough for me.

    The Dickey's in Farmers Branch, TX was outstanding when I ate there regularly in 2010. The others I've been to were pretty ordinary.

    I once made a comment to a Texan I was working with that I was looking forward to hitting Dickie's at DFW before my flight out that afternoon. He gave me a look, and said Dickie's was nothing to get excited about. I replied that Dickie's was the best BBQ I'd ever had at an airport, and he did have to agree with that. I still enjoy getting it whenever I'm at DFW, but my $.02 is that there are generally better options elsewhere.

    It's a chain. It's okay, but I'm sure there are locals doing BBQ better, wherever you are.

    It’s alright. I’ve had better. There aren’t a ton of great options in Wisconsin in this area at least. But my mind isn’t blown by it like going down to Carolina.

    A few years ago a Dickey's opened up nearby and we really wanted to like it but after a few tries we concluded that it simply wasn't good food...even their side dishes were sub-par.

    There's a Salt Lick BBQ at DFW, at least there was last time I came through there (which was a number of years ago). I don't mind Dickies, but Salt Lick is in another league.
