Lakes & Lattes: EXPLORING COLUMBUS: DICKEY’S BARBECUE PIT
View the blog post here.
We were busy running errands around Lewis Center when hunger hit. We needed something fast and delicious and a quick Yelp search led us to Dickey’s Barbecue Pit. And we’re so happy it did because it was really yummy! We thought it was the perfect spot to take the little ones so I couldn’t wait to share our experience.
We were greeted with a warm welcome and the first thing I saw was the “Deal of Day” board.
I made a mental note of the KIDS EAT FREE Sundays – what a deal!
The menu is pretty large and featured BBQ favorites like brisket, pulled pork, kielbasa, turkey, and ribs. The choices ranged from a basic meat plate, to tacos, sliders, sandwiches, and even “smoke stacks” – Frito pie, bangers & mash, or brisket-topped mac & cheese.
They also had a variety of kids meals to choose from for $4.50.
Since it was our first time, we wanted to try as many things as we could and settled on splitting a 3-meat plate. Our little one picked a kid’s plate and we made sure to get a good variety to sample.
We selected: pulled pork, beef brisket, and jalepeno-cheddar kielbasa. The plate came with two sides, and we chose their mac & cheese and potato salad. The little one selected turkey with a side of green beans. Both meals came with buttery rolls and PICKLES!
IT WAS A TON OF FOOD! (How does one person eat the 3-meat plate!? We couldn’t even finish it and we split it!) Seriously! Look at how much food we got for less than $20…
I loved that they served their bbq sauce warm. There were three choices – original, sweet and spicy. I got a bit of each to try and I really loved the spicy barbecue sauce! It definitely had a kick.
Also – they have FREE ice-cream! Can you believe it? Soft-serve style and you can help yourself. I’m not usually a huge fan of soft serve, but this one was really good. It tasted like frozen custard!
Between the free ice-cream and the free kids meals on Sundays – Dickey’s is definitely a fun and affordable choice for families.
