    How much trouble can it be to pour some barbecue sauce on a porkchop?

    Cuvato probably bought stock in Dickies not too long before saying this. Were talking about a Fox news guy here.

    The one near me has free vanilla soft serve. I think the food in general is pretty good. It probably varies from store to store.

    chain bbq is only forgivable if your particular part of the world has no real bbq tradition ...

    Angelo’s was fantastic. Sawdust and peanut shells on the floor. Simply wonderful.
    Salt Lick in Austin used to be great. Haven’t eaten there since 1991. It has changed a lot since my first visit in 1975.
    Sonny’s in Dallas was also a favorite
    So many good BBQ houses

    Dickey's first came out here to Fresno about six years ago. They opened about four locations. Only two are still open, to my knowledge. The two locations we went to were pretty good at first, but in the past couple of years have REALLY gone downhill.

    Last time was the last time for me.

    We finally got a couple of good local BBQ places that have managed to stay open more than three weeks (99% close and become taquerias...we have a ton of those here)...:cool:

    If you live in a BBQ desert (most anywhere north of the Carolinas) Dickeys is OK, it meets the need. It is like calling Olive Garden "Italian". If you want good chain restaurant BBQ...

    that is about the only big one I know of.

    In San Diego, Phil’s is the most renowned BBQ place around. It is very good, though I am no expert. Most everyone around here thinks highly of it though. 2 locations in the county, that I know of.

    We have one here, nothing special. It's better than Hardlees and Burger Queen, but nothing compared to the locally owned mom and pop smoke houses or even the small chains that only have 5 or 10 locations. I went there once. Once. If it's put out for consumpton at a free picnic I'll chow down on it, but it's never the first place I think of when people say they want smoked. I'll redirect then to Hog Wild or Parker's before anything else.

    We spent $60 at Dickey's a few weeks ago for curbside service. They neglected to include BBQ sauce with the order. Kind of defeats the point.

    It’s worth the drive—or the move!

    We have good Mexican food, too!

    Good BBQ doesn’t have to have sauce.

    Dickey’s has to have double sauce.

    I rest my case.

    I love you, TD, but you need some BBQ education if that’s what you think BBQ is...

    Phil’s is good. I also like Coop’s West Texas BBQ in Lemon Grove.

    Way too hot down there. I like to use my air conditioner as little as possible.

    True...Doghouse Grill also has the worst parking lot in town. It's pure luck if you get a spot. But yeah, great tri-tip. No brisket tho...

    A former bandmate has an interest in Westwoods. They are really good, but a bit fancier than your average BBQ joint.

    Maw and Paw BBQ is really good. Small family owned joint. Great brisket!!

    I live in Kansas City. There is a Dickie's here and if I didn't live in Kansas City I'd say it was pretty good.

    But I live in Kansas City. How a Dickie's can survive in a town with real BBQ is unimaginable...

    MY BBQ, coming up next weekend. The kids and inlaws are coming over to help spruce up the yard.

    I will be making two 4 lb. Boston Butt Roasts (pork) dry rubbed with sauce on the side. All sauce should be served on the side, IMHO.

    Haven't decided if I'm going to make them in the Dutch ovens or on the smoker yet...
