About Dickey's Barbecue Pit

Dickey's Barbecue was founded by Travis Dickey with the goal of authentic slow smoked barbecue. More than 73 years later, the Dallas-based family-run barbecue franchise still offers a quality selection of signature meats, home style sides, tangy barbecue sauce and free kids meals every Sunday. All meats are slow smoked onsite in each restaurant. The fast-casual family-friendly concept has expanded to over 400 locations in 40 states and holds the title of the world's largest barbecue franchise. This year Technomic named Dickey's "Fastest-growing restaurant in the country" and they were also named "Best Franchise Deal" by QSR Magazine.
