Was driving down Shea this morning crossing over Scottsdale rd....when I noticed the 'Now Open' signs @ Dickey's BBQ.
I had no idea they were opening a location as the Thomas Rd location had closed.
They are in the old Wendy's location set back from the road...next to the Carwash and a new Pizza Place (Fired Up).
I could see how busy it was so I decided to pop in for lunch.
I ordered the 3 meat plate ($10.99)....not wanting the extra carbs from the bread. I had a combination of Beef Brisket, Pulled Pork, and Sausage...with a side of slaw and beans.
I was given a number which I took to my table ...the food came up very fast.
At the drink bar...there is extra BBQ Sauce and an ice cream machine to grab a cone on the way out.
My platter was heaping w/ meat and sides.....The Brisket had a nice smokey flavor....it was very dry. The pulled pork was flavorful not quite as dry....could have been moister. The sausage was the winner on the plate...
I grabbed a few extra containers of sauce and doused my brisket and pulled pork.
It was all good....I think it could have been better.
I am assuming that today is their first day...so only time will tell if they can perfect the smoking of their meat.
I plan on going back as they have a drive thru window and have meal combinations to go...would be a great alternative to cooking during these Dog Days of Summer.
