Try the Speedway BBQ place on 287 west of Ennis. I stopped there and got a really good sandwich. Great sauce, too.

I drove by Dickie's BBQ in Corsicana yesterday and noticed it's closed. Small wonder. Average BBQ at premium prices. The free market works.

Dickie's took it back from the independant owner and it will be opening back up after the 1st of August. Agree with the other comment, hopefully its better under new management. Store never was as good as some their Dallas locations.

I was never fond of our Dickie's. My Dallas friends thought I was nuts. Now I can let them know that our Dickies did indeed suck and why! Looking forward to August.

Agreed, Girl.

I saw this online:

What makes a good BBQ joint?

Rule One: The place should bear the name of the owner. The theory is that if the owner has his or her name on the place, he/she has a personal stake in serving good Que.

Rule Two: The parking lot of the joint should be crowded and have both expensive and cheap cars and trucks. A mix of vehicles shows that the food appeals to all income levels.

Rule Three: There should be a woodpile visible. If it's neat and tidy, it's a warning sign that it's simply there for show. If it's messy, you can bet it's a working woodpile which means that the wood is actually being used. No woodpile - don't even bother going in.

Rule Four: Barbecue should be the specialty of the house. If the place claims that another dish is - keep going.

Rule Five: A good barbecue joint needs some dust and flies. If the place is too clean - who's paying attention to the pit. No flies? What do they know that you don't?

Rule Six: Avoid Barbecue restaurants located in shopping malls and strip malls.

Yep. Good rules. I like Albert's a lot for burgers. (I know, off topic) but every time I go, I see all sorts of folks eating in, taking out, etc. They know how to make some good burgers and people drive a ways for it. Most of the best places to eat in FW are dives or at least were at one time.

Woody's in Centerville is worth the drive for some BBQ. If you feel the need for a good TX road trip check out Kruse's in Lockheart.
