Two avid nature-lovers, Owner/Operators Karl Reasoner and his wife Christine were on vacation at their cabin near Dodge Ridge Mountain when Karl found himself enjoying Dickey’s while he waited for Christine to shop at the local grocery store. They decided to open a Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in the empty storefront in that very shopping center. This weekend, Reasoner’s dream becomes a reality as the couple is opening their first store together. “I’m very happy to bring Texas-style, slow-smoked barbecue to this area,” Karl says. “I’m looking forward to serving the people in this community.”

The new Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Sonora is located at 1197 Sanguinetti Rd., Sonora, CA 95370. The phone number is (209) 677-3263. Find Dickey’s on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
