Dickey’s BBQ Pit
Dickey’s Barbecue Pit prides itself on authenticity, innovation and barbecue sauce, one store at a time. With roots in Dallas, Travis Dickey set out to perfect Texas-style barbecue.
In 1941, Travis Dickey opened the first Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Dallas, Texas.
Space on the restaurant’s 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.
