The 12th location in Nebraska, the newest barbecue joint will offer $2 pulled pork sandwich specials on Saturday during the event, and three guests will receive free barbecue for a year! 

"Dickey's continues to expand throughout the Midwest," says Roland Dickey, Jr., CEO of Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. "We congratulate Steven Swift on the opening of his second store in Omaha and look forward to expanding our presence throughout Nebraska."

The three-day grand opening includes:

Originally from East Texas, Steven Swift is a retired oil field engineer. Having lived overseas for 25 years, the Swift family moved to Omaha in 2014 to open their first Dickey's Barbecue Pit. "The people of Omaha love Texas-style, slow-smoked barbecue," said owner Steve Swift. "My wife, daughter and I had a great time opening our first store in Northwest Omaha and look forward to opening the second store in the very active Aksarben Village."

The new Dickey's Barbecue Pit in Omaha is located at 1914 South 67th Street Aksarben Village Omaha, NE 68106.
