Based on one visit, I think these owners are going to struggle.

The counter help yesterday didn't have a clue. The brisket was cut in a large, fatty slab WITH the grain. That makes for very tough brisket. They need to cut thin AGAINST the grain. I told the owner and while he offered a replacement, he seemed surprised when I told him how to slice. The meat didn't remotely look like the pictures on their menu. He was so pre-occupied playing with his baby on the patio. When we left, he said, "how was everything"? Didn't even remember our discussion from 10 minutes earlier. The mom was in and out numerous times to play with the baby.

They need to get a babysitter and focus on the restaurant.

The kid on the serving line looked like a thug with his caps on sideways. He was training a girl and both were deer in headlights.

A customer asked for a menu and the only adult on the line said "they are over by the register. Help yourself". Required the customer to snake through the line when he could have taken 2 steps and grabbed it for her.

I really hope they succeed because I have been in other Dickey's and they are not bad. Not great but definitely acceptable. I think these kids pushed all-in before they were ready.

We'll give them another shot in a few weeks to see if they make any progress.

Tried Dickey's, IMHO doesn't hold a candle when compared to M&M Smokehouse- rte 44 behind McDonalds @ I-75--FOOD WISE

Not great. The sauce is not good and the free ice cream even worse. I went the second day it was open and the line out the door was so bad that I left. I returned two weeks later, no line and few people.

It's just a chain franchise restaurant. Don't expect much

I am not a fan of chain restaurants. Hard to compete with Oakwood around here...

Oakwood is a chain. Have you tried I Barbecue in Fruitland Park.

I don't think of Oakwood as a chain. They have four locations and the new take out place.

I think it is the best ribs and sides ever. I love the lima beans, and slaw, and corn salad, and slow cooked green beans with ham and baked apples. The excellent servers have been there for years. We go to the one on 441/27 YUMMY!
Locations – OakWood Smokehouse & Grill

I know this is about the new Dickey's Barbecue place, but Y'all should try Oakwood. Half rib, falling off the bone tender and wonderful sauces. I like the Southern Sweet one.

Most tender ribs and brisket I ever had. M&M.44th&I-75 behind Macdonald’s. Better than oakwood.
