Description: Dickey's Barbecue Pit is a true American success story. In 1941, Travis Dickey, a World War I veteran, opened the first Dickey's Barbecue Pit in Dallas, Texas. Dickey was a true Texas character blessed with the gift of gab and the love of authentic, slow-smoked barbecue. In the beginning, Dickey's Barbecue Pit was truly a family operation with Travis working the block and Miss Ollie Dickey serving sandwiches. Space on the restaurant sign was rented out to help pay the start-up costs for the restaurant and the menu was limited to beef brisket, pit hams, barbecue beans, potato chips, beer, bottled milk and sodas. Brothers Roland and T.D. Dickey took over the business in 1967, continuing their father's legacy of quality, hickory smoked signature meats. Under the direction of the Dickey brothers, Dickey's Barbecue Pit expanded throughout the Dallas Fort Worth area and quickly became known throughout Texas for mouthwatering hickory-smoked barbecue, popular catered events and the iconic Big Yellow Cups. Franchising began in 1994 after loyal guests and barbecue fanatics demanded more locations. Today with over 530 locations in 43 states, loyal guests are what keep Dickey's thriving in every community. The brand has come a long way from Travis Dickey's first location. But, some things never change. 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 complimentary ice cream. And just like always, kids eat free on Sunday.

“Fabulous BBQ!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Texas Deja Vu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2011

I lived in Dallas for four years and became addicted to Dickey's BBQ. 10-12 different meats, all perfectly cooked, 15 sides, and of course, the free self-serve ice cream! A few years ago a DIckey's franchise opened in Scottsdale, but it is very disappointing: 3 meats, four sides. Not the same!

So while in Pinehurst we drove by this Dickey's, and it is Texas Deja Vu! Absolutely fabulous in every respect.

“Holly Cow... I mean Pig!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2011

Well, we happened upon this almost by accident. Wanting a quick lunch, but not the traditional fast food venue, we drove up on this... a bit hesitant due to the "small" nature of the place... we were blown away by the UBER friendly dude behind the counter. Cheerful and pleasant and along with everyone else back there very accommodating.

I have the RIBS... wife and kids had the pulled pork BBQ. All were GREAT and we had plenty left over for "a good to-go box". Also.......FREE self serve soft serve ICE CREAM! How about them apples.

Kids already barking to come back ASAP.
