I had the lunch special that included a sandwich, 2 sides, and beverage. My wife ordered a sandwich, so we split the sides and had a very filling meal. Paid the same price as a fast food plate, but had much better quality and service. Good selection of sauces for the sandwiches. Mac and Cheese side was very good, as... More

A nice place to grab a quick bite while your out and about.the brisket sandwich with the Dickeys BBQ sauce (I enjoyed the sweeter option). The toasted fool is an excellent base and the onions were amazingly fresh. Great service, warm and friendly staff.

Being from Texas, and also being the former owner of a BBQ food service operation, I was pleasantly surprised when I tried this place for lunch. I expected to be disappointed, but I wasn't. I had their 2 meat combo plate: brisket with the Jalapeno Cheddar sausage, along with 2 sides, macaroni and cheese, and coleslaw. I must say the... More

The bbq place was actually decent (I'm not a meat eater)! My recommendations: the quarter plate with cheddar sausage, the 1 meat ribs, and the western sandwich. Our food was so hot and steaming I had to wait for a good 10-15 mins for my first bite! The free soft serve was s wonderful surprise!

Vegans, beware: This is a meat-eaters place! Our big piles of meat included very tender and flavorful beef brisket, and equally tender but not as flavorful pulled pork. The coleslaw was remarkably good, but the jalapeño beans needed some seasoning in addition to the nice pepper bite. We also enjoyed trying the various sauces, and favored the hot and spicy.... More

Well on a positive note it is one of the few places you can smoke, eat, drink and gamble on the bar side. The restaurant side looks like a dingy fast food place in the 50's. The brisket is ok, pulled pork did not smell fresh the one time I tried it, and ribs a bit dry. They claim they... More

Many years ago I went to many eateries in Reno rating best Mexican, Chinese and BBQ. Dickey won and was my close #1. I wanted BBQ ribs, recently and give my #1 place a try. I ask for the ribs 'dry' no sauce on then so I can get the flavor of the rub and smoke, fried okra and BBQ... More

Very good place for a quick bite to eat. Standard menu items but all prepared very well and they have tubs of sauce on the side so you can drench your BBQ to your hearts content! We really enjoyed the ribs as they were so tender that my SO could eat them with no problems! Sides were just okay nothing... More

Very good Pulled Pork and Beef Brisket! The ribs fall off the bone, and the Green Beans with bacon and Mac & cheese are great. Fast service and clean restaurant. It is a Franchise, so no menu changes--ever. but other than that, really good food
