Here in this San Diego County location close to the Pacific Ocean, our unique, slow-smoked version is the real deal. Our barbecue restaurant sits right across the street from California State University San Marcos, so you can enjoy Dickey’s whether you’re catching a Cougars game; taking a study break; grabbing a bite after kayaking on Lake San Marcos; golfing; hiking; or sailing in the area. Order BBQ online from your home, dorm room or hotel. Cater a party with the best BBQ in San Marcos. It’s always a good time for our Texas-style barbecue and homestyle sides!
Explore our menu to get your mouth watering: We have fall-off-the-bone ribs, spicy cheddar sausage, marinated chicken, wings, barbecue beans, homemade mac and cheese, coleslaw, desserts and drinks. Our most popular item, the brisket, smokes low and slow for a full 14 hours on site each night to create that incomparable, authentic barbecue taste.
Come to our BBQ spot for dine-in, carryout, curbside, delivery or catering. We’ll even reward you for your barbecue habit: Sign up for our “Big Yellow Cup Rewards” program to earn points toward free food with each purchase!


Lots of barbecue places promise authenticity, but Dickey’s is the barbecue restaurant that delivers. True to Texas style, our meats are slow-smoked on site, every night by certified Pit masters. Plus, it’s not Texas barbecue without Dickey’s sauce and rub, only available at our locations.
