WRR: Dickey’s Barbecue Pit

Everyone needs a little barbecue in their life. With football season upon us, you might need a little more.

Stop by Dickey’s to get a quick fix that is a step above. I’ve reviewed barbecue in here before (Pat’s here and Firehouse here), but Dickey’s takes restaurant served barbecue to a new high, and I’ll tell you why.

  1. Great meat. It’s true. With an eye on my health, I’ve been moderating how much meat I eat recently. One bite, though, and I was about ready to order an extra serving. Served on a toasted bun and tender and moist, it was delicious.
  2. Sides. I’m not usually that jazzed by baked beans or the other sides that most barbecue restaurants serve up almost obligatorily. They taste like an after thought, maybe even something out of a can. Not so at Dickey’s. My bowl of baked beans was fresh and yummy, and my bowl was empty when we left.
  3. Service and Soft Serve. Where other local barbecues felt like amateur operations, Dickey’s staff were pleasant, fast, and delightful, reflecting a professional level of training. And, to boot, they had free soft serve ice cream to top off the meal. How do you beat that?

Where others are shooting from the hip, Dickey’s takes barbecue to the next level. Check it out soon, and order some barbcue for your next football tail-gate party.

They cater, too, so if you’re looking for BBQ for your party, be sure to call up the South Jordan location (where we ate).

Food: 8/10
Service: 8/10
Atmosphere: 8/10
