T stands for Dickey's BBQ

Welcome back T-Gang and hello to anyone else dropping by.  Today's post is about a new place DH and I stopped and had lunch at today (Monday here).  We had heard it had some descent BBQ and thought we would give it a try...........being BBQ competitors.....and loving OUR is sometimes interesting to eat it at a restaurant.........sometimes!!!

Pit BBQ is always the my book....and the windows bragged on it being pit BBQ!

We were almost finished with our lunch (it was huge...both plates) and I have to admit......IT WAS GOOD!!  I will defiantly go back to Dickey's BBQ.  Everything was cooked perfect and the taste was spot on.  We each had a beer......gasp!  Yes, a beer just sounded good with BBQ.....we also had small glasses of water.  The drinks are for Elizabeth and the T-gang for T stands for Tuesday 

I had the rib plate with green beans and coleslaw sides.......I was finished by this photo....LOL  DH had a 3 meat plate........brisket, pulled pork and German sausage.  His two sides were baked beans and macaroni and cheese........needless to say we did get a to-go box for all the left overs.....*grin*  That is a couple different BBQ sauces in the small cups....they have three:  Hot and spicy (not really) regular and sweet.  I ended up mixing the hot n spicy and the sweet together.
So while DH (way back there in the plaid shirt) was finishing I got up and took some photos......well, ALL but the ones of our lunch. It was a nice clean place, but not really big and country music was playing, and the people working there were top they still say that??  When they heard we had not been in before, they gave us a sample of their turkey and a rib to share, before we even ordered.

It is more like fast food, in that you have to walk up and order, then take you plates to a table, but only THAT part, cause GOOD BBQ is always low and slow!!
This is a picture of how the plate (?) comes.  It is really a small metal tray with clean paper on it.......cause you are supposed to eat BBQ with your fingers!  BUT there were some plastic eating utensils to get the  sides into your mouth.....*grin*
This is NOT one of our plates.....a gentleman set his lunch down and went to get some sauce, and.....well I WAS just standing I took a picture of it.....LOL
He was over here, the BBQ sauces are barely in the picture on the faaaarrr left. 

An other young man was picking up some grub and asking me what I had had, it was his first time there too, and I got a picture of their to-go bags......I think they are neat looking.

A closer look at their menu.....a little pricy, but the food was really good.

The sides and misc. stuff

They even have 4 table outside, but today was to chilly, with threatening clouds over head, but at least there isn't any snow..........sorry all of you that are buried in it!!
So what else has been going on since last we met??  I learned how to make box cards and have three to share in my next post.  They are Valentines for the grandies in San Diego and will need to be mailed shortly.........can you believe it is almost Valentine's Day???  I really need to go take down my Christmas cards from over the bar. (I always forget them).
I also learned to make an expanding card.  It is for my DIL, who's birthday is Valentine's Day too!!  The big 4-0 this year!  I'll post it with the box cards, but right now I'm going to run into the dinning room and take DOWN the Christmas cards........LOL!!
Inky Hugs


  1. looks and sounds like a successful outing...yummy food! you crack me up, taking a photo of someone else's funny! it does look really clean, and as a competitor you guys know your BBQ, so hopefully they will stay in business. happy T day dear!

  2. This was a fun post. I like how you got yourself in the photos, something I try to avoid like the plague. I was surprised you liked the BBQ because you are so fussy about what you guys make. I'm delighted that you enjoyed it, though. Sounds like they are in it for the long haul, and free samples always go well in my book.

    Thanks for sharing this fun experience and your beer with us for T this Tuesday (at least it's Tuesday here).

  3. Looks like a great place for a visit, and glad you enjoyed the food. Difficult not to eta too much there! Have a great week and a happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  4. sounds you had a great meal (though i better hadn´t looked at it with my morning coffee, haha...)
    happy t-day!

  5. Looks yummy and reminds me of summer. :)

  6. If you BBQ people liked the food it must have been great. What better recommendation could the place have.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the cards you mention. You are always coming up with something new.

  7. It is not even 8 am and now I am hungry! The food looks good--and must be if you enjoyed it. You are certainly experts in my opinion.

    The restaurant had a nice atmosphere and I rather like ordering and then seating yourself.

    Fun post!

  8. Hey, we have one of those very same places right up the road! I hear good things about it but it's not my kind of place being I'm mostly vegetarian. Love how you managed some extra sneaky pics:) Your box cards sound very interesting and I can't wait to see. Yes, Valentine's Day is fast approaching (and our son's b'day too) so I had better get going. Happy T day!

  9. I have seen many a Dickey's BarBQue places but i have never been in one.. We have found a barbque we like here in Arkansas but darn if i can remember the name of it right now...grrr...We have been tearing the kitchen apart this past week and now are trying to put it back together... the old cabinets will go back in to be replaced at a later date.... right now its all about the sheetrock and insulation and plumbing and electrical... gotta get the bones right before i get to make it look pretty... uuuughhhh... Happy Tday my friend! Hugs! deb

  10. This post has made me serioulsy hungry! So glad you enjoyed the BBQ, it didn't look overly busy with all those empty tables. Will be back to see the box cards and whatever an expanding card is... they sound like fun! Happy T Tuesday to you! Annette

  11. Thanks for sharing your fun BBQ outing.
    Glad you enjoyed it!
    You made me smile with your sneaky pics too!
    We did get alot of gorgeous white stuff here in the Wash DC area :-)
    Happy T Day

  12. Well the food looked very tastey Krisha and it looked very clean and tidy too. Glad you had a good outing. My friend Jacky and I took our friend Roni out for dinner on Monday as it was her birthday. She chose to go to an American Diner and we all enjoyed a yummy meal. Barbxx

  13. This looks like a great place - just right for barbecue food I'd say! I am not a great meat eater but that side list looks great! Happy T Day! Hugs, Chrisx

  14. Looks like you found a really great place to eat. Hard to find a place with both good food and good service these days. Top notch--I still say that. Happy T-Day! :)

  15. Thank you for taking us to that BBQ restaurant. It looks like a really nice place to eat. Why was it so empty?
    I would not like to eat the meal without cutlery though. Anything with a bone in it I will be happy to use my fingers, but pulled beef with my finger, nah!
    Thanks for visiting earlier,
    Have a good week,

  16. We have a Dickey's not too far from where we live. Yours looks very much like the one here. My husband likes it but since I don't eat meat it isn't too good for me.
    Happy T Day!!

  17. Great pictures. We have one of these where we live, but haven't tried it yet . . . you may have motivated me to go for some BBQ!

  18. I love your post.I 've just learnt some more words with the menus.It's good to brush up my English.What a great place the restaurant is!
    Thanks so much for your words.They lift up my soul. Happy belated T-Day!
