About Dickey’s Barbecue Pit

Dickey's Barbecue Pit is a true American success story serving Legit.Texas.Barbecue. across the world. In 1941, Travis Dickey opened the first location in Dallas, Texas. Franchising began in 1994 after loyal guests and bbq fanatics demanded more locations. Roland Dickey, Jr. became Chief Executive Officer in 2006 continuing the family tradition. As the fast-casual chain racks up awards and recognitions, the Dickey family still serves up the same quality barbecue recipes handed down for generations, coupled with the same brand of southern hospitality, only on a much larger scale.


Dickey’s Locations

At Dickey’s, we pride ourselves on serving our guests authentic, Texas-style barbecue. At 1,500 square feet, our locations offer an experience where guests feel like they are dining with family. The kitchen is an open concept where guests can see and smell the meat being smoked and the sides being prepared. When guests enter any Dickey’s location they are greeted with “Welcome to Dickey’s” and then have a conversation with the Pit Boss crafting their meal at the block.
