Dickey's

Postby nascarchuck » Tue Oct 16, 2007 8:51 am

Sunday I wanted some BBQ so my son and I were gonna stop by Cousins and grab a plate to go. Well, Cousins is closed on Sundays so I remembered that Dickey's was just down the road.

My son got a chopped sandwich, but to be honest I never have questioned what he thought about it.

I got the brisket/sausage plate. Was pleasantly surprised.

The brisket was a little too tender. In fact I couldn't stab it with my fork because it kept falling apart, so I had to scoop it up. Had decent flavor though. The sausage was pretty good and they gave plenty of it. Sauce was pretty good.

For the sides, I chose jalapeno beans and they gave more than enough. They tasted like they opened a can of Ranch Style beans and added a little bit of jalapeno to it.

My other side was Au Grautien (sp) potatoes. They were so-so. All they did was dump cheese sauce over potatoes.

So, the meats were good, but I will try different sides next time.

Anyway, I will add this to my short list of local BBQ joints.

I have been to Dickey's a couple time when I'm up in Waco. We had one in Round Rock, but it didn't last very long and closed up shop.

I did like their potato salad and slaw, I also had the brisket and sausage plate, sausage is pretty good, brisket was OK.

Best deal in the house is the veggie platter. Thats whut I usually get along with the cobbler for dessert. Nice black fella from deep E. Texas ran one down here for a good while. He was highly addicted to heavy smoked offset pork butts..which was not on his menu. He would order em and I would cook em. He say they was much mo betta than whut he served:) Course he did not do butts and say it be against the health goon laws to chunk any on his Oylers. He cooked large amounts of small brisket 18 hrs on the Rotess. You could eat it with a spoon..in fact they so mushy you nearly have to. Shut down..not enough bizness.

Dickeys is avergage Q for Texas, some of the better stuff for Dallas. I think they get their sausage from Rudolphs Meat Market (as most bbq places in DFw do).

I like their tradition of a free soft serve ice cream cone after a plate of Q.....hard to beat that.

Well now someone here said Randy White's closed.
Was there another one that did? or did they all? How many were there? Where?
and again is this the Footballer Randy White?
Did he actually own and/or operate one of the joints?

thanks

Well, I ain't BW, but I might can point ya in the correct direction since I've soft of taken the wheelspeak on-line class...

offset butts is just that... butts that be cooked in an offset cooker in offset heat mode...

Oylers are BBQ pits...

Randy White's here in Frisco did close, but just get another one built ac ross the street. I am not sure if there are more than this one, but if the help was like this one, I wouldn't go in. Yep, the Randy White of the Dallas Cowboys owns it/them.

Ya Randy Whites gets alot of bussiness for some reason. The Q is not all that great and the service does suck. I know it is not Q but if I am in that area I eat at Brothers. Good southern little cafe.

I used to like Dickey's but the stores in Carrollton and Addison have gotten really bad. The meat is gray and tastes baked or boiled and the sides are the worst. I called back to complain and ended up talking to the Pakistani manager who could hardly speak English. He wasn't very sympathetic and suggested I might not know what real BBQ tastes like and told me it was ok to his taste. I won't waste my time there any more. Roland Dickey's Dad would roll over in his grave to see what the Dickey food has become.
