Famed Texas barbecue restaurant has opened at Grand Traverse Plaza

Grand Traverse Plaza has welcomed a famed barbecue restaurant to the shopping center near Brownwood.

Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has opened just a few doors down from Flipper’s Pizzeria at the shopping plaza located within Wildwood on State Road 44.

Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has opened at Grand Traverse Plaza.

The menu features beef brisket, pulled pork, St. Louis style ribs, polish sausage, spicy cheddar sausage, smoked turkey and marinated chicken, with an extensive array of homestyle sides from jalapeño beans to macaroni and cheese. Buttery rolls are served with every meal, along with complementary ice cream. Children eat free on Sundays.

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.
