Celebrate the birth of The Earl of Sandwich today with - well, a sandwich!

 

Today is a celebration of one of America's favorite foods: the sandwich! It’s no coincidence that November 3 is also the birthday of John Montagu, the fourth Earl of Sandwich. This 18th century English nobleman wanted to eat his meal with one hand during a 24-hour gambling event, so he instructed his servants to serve him his lunchmeat between two slices of bread. To commemorate the birth of the world's first sandwich-maker, today is officially National Sandwich Day!

It’s an occasion especially worth celebrating and makes Dickey’s Barbecue your number one destination for this holiday. Across the nation, we’re offering our Big Barbecue Sandwich, two sides, and a big yellow cup as the deal of the day, all day long.
