When I first heard about this I was excited, being from TX and having eaten at the original Dickeys quite often. The first visit, within a month of opening, was good. The brisket was close enough to my memory, and the service was great. The next visit was good, maybe not as good in terms of food. The next two visits left me sorely disappointed and I have given up on this place. The service is still ok but not 'bright' like before, a bit sullen perhaps. But it's the food... I always get beef brisket, usually sliced. (I don't eat pork). The last two times it was too fatty. This MIGHT be excused if the rest of it was great. Unfortunately, NOT. The beef seemed limp and gooey, not firm and assertive like good TX bbq should be. I don't know what's up with this place, but they need to get back into the Texas groove. On the plus side, the fries are nice and so is the free ice cream.
