About Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants

Dickey’s Barbecue was founded by Travis Dickey with the goal of authentic slow smoked barbecue. Seventy-two 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 on site in each restaurant. The fast-casual family-friendly concept has expanded to over 300 locations in 40 states and holds the title of the world’s largest barbecue franchise.
