About

About Dickey’s Barbecue Pit

Dickey’s Barbecue Pit first opened in 1941 and has since grown into the largest barbecue chain in the world. Dickey’s offers seven slow-smoked, Texas-style meats and a variety of savory sides, all served with a touch of southern hospitality. Since 1941, Dickey’s has slow-smoked their meats overnight, every night to ensure its authentic flavor.

Dickey’s Locations

At Dickey’s, we pride ourselves on serving our guests authentic, Texas-style barbecue in our stores that feel like an extension of the owner’s home. 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 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.

Dickey’s Texas-Style Barbecue and Savory Sides

Long before our guests arrive, we begin slow smoking our barbecue with hickory wood smokers at every location, every day just as it was done in 1941. In fact, we are so passionate about the quality of our ingredients that our meats are rubbed by hand with family recipes passed down from earlier generations. And as you know, you can’t have great barbecue without savory sides. Dickey’s offers a variety of homestyle side options for guests that are the perfect complement to their slow-smoked meat.
