    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.

    On Mother's day, we had some excellent barbecue ribs, they were smoked by a friend of my son's, and they were delicious, but you know, if I have a porkchop, and a bottle of barbecue sauce I'm good, I ain't much particular.

    Truth, especially ribs. The only exception, for me, is pulled pork. Gotta have sauce through the meat

    I'll take Q39 for just about anything. It is really good!

    I at at Dickey's once and it was gross. It may have been that particular location. It was bad enough I haven't wanted to give another one a try. Good luck

    Going to Table Rock Lake in September for a Navy buddies & wives reunion. Anyone know of a good BBQ near there that would feed 25 people or so? Or should I just do the BBQ myself?

    I'm still trying to figure out how Famous Dave's has survived here. I'd actually eat Dickies over that, and I don't like Dickies either.

    I'm not sure what they have in Branson these days, but there is a place in Springfield called City Butcher that has some pretty damn good food.

    yep

    Detroit has no real regional style so - they do every regional style here.

    it’s not rocket scientry/brain surgicalness .

    Slows is the biggest in the city but the street corner cooks do the sides the best

    It ain’t that hot—it’s only hit 90+ twice this month!

    Worked down there in August one year. It was like an oven in the daytime.

    Taco Bell is like peeing into a urinal that won’t flush while an open dirty diaper is staring up at you from the floor.
    It also has a bad side.

    that is an apt description, I'd note to describe it implies having lived it. Nobody admits going to taco bell and yet they are crowded and everywhere...
