We stumbled upon this place heading from Galveston to Houston. What a find. We were greeted as "new" customers with a sampler of meats. It felt like being part of the Dickensian BBQ family! Thanks!

Wonderful fresh and delicious! I love the turkey avocado melt! The banana pudding is also delicious! And don't forget the fried okra!

The best shrimp po'boy anywhere including NOLA. Pulled pork is excellent. Texas Chili yum. Gumbo as good as I make. Homemade Ranch Dressing is spectacular. And a bar.

The service at Dickinson Bar-B-Que & Steakhouse is excellent. The young man who takes orders was friendly, patient and good. It's a nice barbeque restaurant on FM 517 not far from 45. We enjoyed sitting on this patio. I found the barbeque to be average. I ordered the sliced brisket sandwich and my wife had a baked potato. I wasn't... More

Maybe it's just me but I was not impressed with the quality of BBQ. Everyone else seems to like it but it just didn't do it for myself and my spouse. Very friendly staff though!! I wanted to like it but ribs tasted more steamed that grill cooked. Unfortunately I won't return as there are too many excellent BBQ options... More

Love the service of this team here. The BBQ is reliably good quality and the side dishes are my favorite along with the fresh hot rolls! A manager always comes by the table to check on service and satisfaction and this shows the dedication this team has to its customers.

I've been going around to various BBQ joints in the area. Hands down, these are my favorite spare ribs around. They beat the pants off of any in the area, including Rudy's, Pappa's, Ryan's, Red River BBQ, Logan's Steakhouse, etc. They use a dry rub. The ribs come out with a nice pink color and a good bark on top.... More

Four of us, one had the three meat plate, one the chicken fried steak, one had the two meat plate and I had the buffalo wings. Everything was superb!!!! The wine flight is one of the best bargains that I've had. Everyone is so welcoming! They also offer samples before you buy. Overall this is a WONDERFUL place.

I've have been here several times. The beer is cold and the food is decent. I like their ribs. Last time we were there I tried to order a pound of ribs and the young man(who was trying to be helpful) wouldn't listen to me and tried to get me to try meals. I asked 3 times for a pound... More
