In 1941, Travis Dickey, a World War II veteran, opened the first Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Dallas. Dickey was a true Texas character, blessed with the gift of gab and the love of authentic, slow-smoked barbecue.

Brothers Roland and T.D. Dickey took over the business in 1967, continuing their father’s legacy of quality, hickory-smoked signature meats.

Today there are more than 500 Dickey’s locations in 44 states.
