To me, Dickies is the Burger King of BBQ. Not McDonnalds, as McDs has way more consistent quality. BK, IME, not so much. However, individual restaurants can be OK. Of the chain BBQ out there, Dickies is way, way behind Rudy’s or Famous Dave’s. But, truth be told, it is better than the worst local BBQ. For airport BBQ, Salt Lick is better (DFW) as is Joe’s Real BBQ (PHX Sky Harbor) than Dickies IMO. While neither Rudy’s nor Famous Dave’s is the best I’ve ever had, they are pretty decent. Indeed, if I am too lazy to make my own, I have ordered from both places.
