I recently relocated from South Carolina so the standards are pretty high. The pulled pork was mushy and some big hunks of fat to contend with. The brisket was dry over glorified pot roast. Green beans and okra were both pretty salty. I will need to continue my search for something better. Maybe being part of the early lunch crowd is not their sweet spot. I hope your meal here is better than mine.
Place overall has a grungy dark feeling, coupled with poor customer service and messy floors especially by where the beverages are
First of all, really want to say that I really appreciate the staff at this location - they're always hard at work and very dedicated to delivering accurate orders and delicious food. If you're picking up an order have a little patience because they're likely cooking or working on something to make the food right; although, most of the time orders are usually waiting for me in the warmer by the time I arrive. The Dickey's Barbecue Pit on Arapahoe is awesome. They've saved me tons of times and have never let me down, and their food is delicious and always loved by everyone. Why am I saying they've saved me tons of times? They're my go to place for getting food for larger family gatherings and even for catering events with friends/family, especially when I have guests that show up that same day or within an hour or two of calling. The brisket, the pulled pork, the dinner rolls, any of the sides - it's all great and people always love it. Once I only got larger sides from them - and it went great with the home made prime rib. Another time, I purchased food from them and "fixed" it up to sort of make it my own - not that their food really needs any fixing; but these were snobby guests and it was a huge success (sorry Dickey's, only did that once). The restaurant allows one to place large orders online, which I honestly just found out about within the last year and it's great, usually I had placed orders on Ubereats or just gone to the restaurant to place an order. They allow one to place large family-sized orders right at the store or even the drive through; but, for catering I'd suggest giving them a heads up. I think it was Mothers Day last year that they ran out of brisket; but they made up for it with their pulled pork and by throwing in a few extras which I didn't even expect and greatly appreciated. As for eating at the restaurant - can't really comment on that experience; but it usually seems like there's available seating and it's usually families. They seem to have a buffet or self-serve area on the sides and based on signs it's the same cost regardless of how much you take (not sure if that includes seconds); so guess that's good if your hungry - personally, I don't like buffets because they tend to get messy and COVID is still a thing. On smaller orders - do check that you got the right sauces. I think they rush to pack the smaller orders and sometimes miss things like the sauces - which happened today; but the brisket's still amazing even without BBQ sauce.

Good ribs 😋Good customer service's
Excellent attention and very well food
We got no sides and miniscual meat. It really sucks because usually they are really great at making DoorDash orders normally but do not order on DoorDash! Something always gets messed up. As somebody who managed a restaurant for 3 years the door dasher is also responsible for making sure all the items are there so I know it’s not just on you guys completely but come on. This is money we’re spending for desperate long hours days.
Brisket was dry and lukewarm. The jalapeño sausage was cold inside. The pork ribs and sweet BBQ sauce were actually pretty tasty. Staff seemed distant and uninterested in serving us. Overall, a 2 or at best 2.5.
I will definitely visit again I love the barbecue rips.
