(Tomball, TX) Since opening in July, Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Tomball has become an addiction for local residents. In order to give back to the local community, Dickey’s is throwing a grand opening event on Thursday, September 27 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. where customers will enjoy $1 Pulled Pork Big Barbecue sandwiches. “Tomball has been so good to us since we opened,” said franchise owner Kristin Mason. “The local community has fallen in love with our authentic, mouthwatering barbecue and we are looking forward to celebrating our grand opening with them and KSTAR.” The Tomball Chamber of Commerce will hold a ribbon cutting for the store at 10:30 a.m. KSTAR will be at the event to entertain the crowd and three lucky customers will win free barbecue for an entire year. This store is located 28155 Tomball Parkway, #2 and the store phone number is 281-255-2775. Dickey's is open 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. “I love the look on people’s faces when they ask how much our ice cream is and I get to tell them it’s free,” said Mason. “Our customers not only love our food, but enjoy our soothing vintage Texas atmosphere. We’ve even had customers bring in antiques to add to our wall decor; from old rusty license plates to a leathered horse collar.” Founded in 1941, Dickey’s has mastered the art of slow smoking meats to perfection every night. Dickey’s is proud to give the Tomball area the right balance of juicy tender meats, topped with Dickey’s family recipe barbecue sauce and savory home-style sides.
