In 1941, Travis Dickey opened the first Dickey's Barbecue Pit just north of downtown Dallas, Texas. Space on the restaurant's sign was rented out to Dr. Pepper to help pay the start-up costs for the restaurant. The menu was limited to beef brisket, pit hams, barbecue beans, potato chips, beer, bottled milk and sodas.
