Default Dickies BBQ.

Is this place any good? They have a heck of a special going on right now. Two meat plates with all the sides
for 19 dollars.

Dunno. A town of about 20,000 in central KS by me had one and it lasted less than three months. Very average BBQ at best. But then we are spoiled in this region.

They seem to try hard. Once was pretty good twice it was okay.

But Iím in MN, not quite assimilated into the bland Viking diet but too close for comfort.


I need a kinder gentler machine gun

Ok guzzi. Talk me through this one. In what way is your area spoiled with barbecue? I've traveled to Kansas City Kansas many times for work and sought out the best known and most popular barbecue restaurants in the area because KC takes exceptional pride in barbecue. Forum rules prohibit me from rendering a complete and accurate opinion of what I discovered. This is, after all, a family forum.

Suffice it to say that I never finished a meal, and on a couple of occasions barely even started one.

I don't particularly care for "KC" style BBQ. The town I was mentioning the demise of Dickies in has a third generation operated BBQ. The smoker is over 100 years old. Wichita has one excellent BBQ place and a number of good ones. Salina, KS had an excellent one just off of I-135. Many of the small towns have some good BBQ joints.

^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ pretty much it ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^
ok i guess if you like smoked "bbq"
their sides are better than their meats.
i'd get sausage if you go. one has to try hard to
screw up sausage.

We were going to check out the one in Ruidoso. Not sure if I want to now, it never hurts to ask about these things first. There used to be a black man here who owned a BBQ joint, and it was really good. But he
passed away and it closed.

There is a Dickies in the next town south. Wife and I ate there once. There is better BBQ available just a short piece down the street.

There is? If it's the next town I'm thinking of I always get lost in that place. Red Chimney in Carlsbad wasnt
to bad.
