Grand Traverse Plaza will welcome a famed barbecue restaurant to the shopping center near Brownwood.


Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is expected to make its Villages debut early next year.


In 1941, Travis Dickey, a World War II veteran, opened the first Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Dallas. Dickey was a true Texas character, blessed with the gift of gab and the love of authentic, slow-smoked barbecue


Dickey’s Barbecue Pit still slow smokes all meats on-site just the same way they did in 1941. The menu features beef brisket, pulled pork, St. Louis style ribs, polish sausage, spicy cheddar sausage, smoked turkey, and marinated chicken, with an extensive array of homestyle sides from jalapeño beans to macaroni and cheese. Buttery rolls are served with every meal, along with complementary ice cream. Children eat free on Sundays.


Roland Dickey Jr. became chief executive officer in 2006, continuing the family tradition. 


Dickey’s now has 600 locations in 43 states.
