Dickey's has few frills, but great BBQ. There are many side choices as well. The fried okra and coleslaw are good. Atmosphere is fairly rustic, but food is quick and tasty.

The staff is always friendly. The portion size is adequate. I had the smokehouse salad it was delicious. It's also nice to get free ice cream, it tends to be a little runny even for soft serve.

Dickies only recently made its way to Athens, Georgia and it is a cut above most chain barbecue restaurants. I particularly like the daily specials.
