I'm going to compare this to Bar3 because of the menu similarities.The short version:Compared to Bar3, I thought everything was better except for the turkey and chicken, and that's only because Bar3 does those two things really, really well.Dickey's was cheaper, had good quality meat (we tried turkey, chicken, beef brisket, pulled pork) without too much gristle, had better sides, and had more appropriate portion sizes (enough to be filling without encouraging over-eating).Last few times at Bar3, I've ended up with brisket that was half-gristle, and forgettable sides (except for the tasty rice-and-beans). I usually do 3-meat-platters and Bar3 gives you big portions which might feel like a better deal but let's be real - there are few people who can eat that much in one sitting. So you end up paying more for meat that probably ends up being reheated leftovers (which isn't great for BBQ). Meanwhile, Dickey's gives you a few decent-sized slices that are enough to fill larger stomachs like mine. So the cost-per-ounce-of-meat is probably the same but I'd prefer to pay less and get enough for a filling, hot dinner than to pay more for some reheated BBQ later on.The meats themselves were well-cooked with good flavors and great sauces on the side. The fattier meats (beef brisket and pulled pork) had just enough fat/gristle on the edges to flavor the rest of the meat, so the majority of the meat you DID get was edible (I know some people eat gristle but that's just not me).All of the sides we tried (baked potato casserole, potato salad, green beans, fried okra, and creamed spinach) were pretty good except for the creamed spinach. The creamed spinach was a little too much "cream" than "spinach" for my liking but it wasn't terrible.The staff were all very nice, but hey it's Bozeman - there are so many good people here that it's sometimes hard to find a place with bad staff.
