As new restauranteurs, the Burketts saw
great value in the Dickey’s Barbecue Pit brand, especially after moving from
Frisco, TX where Dickey’s is a household name. Upon moving to Lebanon, the
couple decided it was time to open a restaurant of their own and found a home
in Dickey’s. “For the last 10 years I have traveled for my job and saw new
Dickey’s locations pop up with lines out the door,” says Ron Burkett. “When it
came time to make a career change and stop traveling, we knew that opening our
own Dickey’s was the right choice for us. We cannot wait to serve the members
of our Lebanon community.”
The new Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in
Lebanon is located at 115 S. Hartmann Dr. Lebanon, TN 37087. The phone number
