Just in time for the holiday travel rush, Dickey's Barbecue Pit has opened in Terminal C at Dallas Fort Worth Airport. Across from Gate 6, the restaurant features a full bar and is open daily from 5 a.m. until the last flight departure of the day, according to a company press release
"We're Dallas born and bred, so we're excited to be able to share our authentic, Texas-style barbecue experience with our fellow Lone Star natives and with folks who are just passing through," Roland Dickey Jr., CEO of Dickey's Capital Group, parent company of the chain, said in the release.
The bar includes a selection of Texas-sourced cocktails, beers and wines and features signature cocktails, including the chain's take on the dark and stormy cocktail — coined the Delkus — after famed WFAA meteorologist Pete Delkus. It's made with Gosling's Black Seal Rum, grapefruit juice, brown sugar simple syrup and ginger beer. Another option is the 1941, a celebratory cocktail of the company's founding year showcasing Hendrick's Gin, cinnamon simple syrup, lemon juice, St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram and Angostura Bitters.
Morning commuters may also order a breakfast cocktail, including the Texas Breakfast, a spicy mixture of vodka, lime, simple syrup, sriracha and red bell pepper with a sprinkle of pepper.
Guests may also order food to-go and purchase Dickey's branded T-shirts and Dickey's at-home products from the DFW location.
Dickey's operates over 500 locations in 44 U.S. states and has two locations in the UAE.
