Let us bring the 'cue to you!

Good barbecue has a way of bringing people together, a lot better than any other cuisine. The time and effort that goes into even learning how to smoke a brisket or a rack of fall-off-the-bone pork ribs takes things to a whole different level. Take the stress of grilling away with the help of our experienced pitmasters, so you too can enjoy your backyard barbecue. This is where the culture at Dickey’s Barbecue Pit all started over 80 years ago. Back in 1941, our grandfather Travis Dickey launched the grand opening of our very first BBQ joint sharing his love for Legit. Texas. Barbecue.

Back in Dallas, Texas Dickey’s opened its doors with a simple BBQ menu, at least compared to what we see today. Our first barbecue restaurant served brisket and ham sandwiches, with sides like fries or potato chips. Barbecue is not complete without a cold one, but there was also soda or even milk to go with your barbecue meal. Dickey’s became the local lunch spot that the community loved to come sit, eat, and hear a few jokes from the Pit Master himself, Mr. Dickey. A culture of service, great eats, and greets was created, driving the restaurant that we know today.

There are not too many places where you can say you want all the smoke, bring the heat, and chop it up without being looked at a little funny. The secret to having a place like this, where people want to come and visit time and time again, is quite simple. At Dickey’s, we just take the food seriously not ourselves.

Imagine this: Getting off after a long day at work, picking up the kids from school, and needing fast and easy dinner ideas. Just head down to your local Dickey’s Barbecue Pit for the best BBQ in your city. Our slow smoked BBQ meats, savory sides, original barbecue sauce, and finally our southern hospitality all together make any visit to our BBQ joint one for the books. We are here to give people a break from their jobs, responsibilities, and anything else that may be weighing on them.

“When people ask about Dickey’s, I explain that we’re in the-food-and-the-folks business. We charge them for the barbecue, but the hospitality and tall tales are free of charge,” says Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Inc.

There should be no hold up! Plan your visit to the barbecue restaurant near me to get your hands on the best BBQ in your city.
