Since 1941, the Dickey family says it has had one mission: "Serve everyone great barbecue." It all began at this location, homey and humble compared to the other area restaurants. Three generations later the family is still at it -- in 2009, Dickey's was considered the largest barbecue restaurant chain in the country. The menu includes all the 'cue staples, such as brisket, pulled pork and ribs, available in meat combos, all of which are smoked on the premises. The available sides, like beans and corn on the cob, also hit all the traditional marks. However, the Dickey family isn't content with solely offering eat-in and take-out grub. The restaurant has a catering menu with several packages, including buffet or box options, and a holiday-meal menu with the holiday spiral-cut ham as a favorite choice.
