The family pack was excellent and we had leftovers to take home for our family of four. The staff was helpful and courteous and the BBQ was delicious! I'd highly recommend this restaurant.

Texas beef brisket is awesome

They use Ole Hickory CTO smokers to hickory smoke their meats. We had ribs and brisket, both were excellent. Sweet sauce was great, original and "Sassy" were good but too spicy for my low heat tolerance. Fried Okra, was very good. Atmosphere was pleasant and free ice cream is always good. I will return.

I would like to see some healthier sides offered. All of them seem to be very high fat and high caloric content sides. The green beans are over cooked. The meat is fantastic, however.

The pulled smoked pork is to die for. It's truly the best in this area- hands down. Where in Wheaton can you get fried Okra? What? Yes- go you wonder be disappointed! My only complaint was the dining room is cold- but other than that go, it won't disappoint! Oh and the tea is good too. After your meal you get to visit the ice cream for a free small cup of soft serve-add the root beer to it for a tasty float! : Generous portions too!

Don't go. It's overpriced for small portions and the food is barely decent.

Don't order the green beans. The flavor is ok but the texture is repulsive. The brisket is. Very taaty , especially with the regular BBQ sauce. Overall quite good!

From Our Editors

When Travis Dickey opened the first Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in 1941, the menu offered beef brisket, pit hams, barbecued beans, potato chips, drinks, and that’s all. By focusing on perfecting the flavors of a few dishes, Travis was able to increase quality and, ultimately, the number of customers. Patrons were so enamored of the food that the restaurant eventually expanded into a nationwide franchise, allowing Americans all over to wear badges made of barbecue sauce. Dickey’s has been passed on to Travis’s sons, but not much else has changed—the quality meats are still seasoned and smoked onsite, and except for the addition of spicy cheddar sausage in 2011, the menu has remained largely the same for the last 50 years.

Regional meats ensure that the most succulent Texas-style chopped beef brisket, old-recipe polish sausage, and fall-off-the-bone pork ribs make it to tabletops. Sides such as mac 'n' cheese and green beans with bacon continue to enhance feasts with an extra punch of homestyle tastiness. Each meal comes complete with complimentary ice cream, soft rolls, and dill pickles.
