MARBLE FALLS, Texas - March 7, 2018 // PRNewswire // - Local entrepreneurs, Allen and Michele Kent, bring Dickey's slow-smoked barbecue to Marble Falls. The couple plans to bring three Dickey's Barbecue Pit locations to the area in the coming years. The second and third locations will open in Coppers Cove and Lampasas.
