When you say barbecue to a lot of people in a lot of places in America, you will get some heated, impassioned, feverish responses. I can’t get enough of that. It’s such an ingrained part of the local culture, it can really be amazing to witness and experience. I love the arguments about who makes the best brisket or why Texas barbecue is superior to North Carolina barbecue. I love my food and I love my drink. For me, going to a good barbecue joint is truly one of my life’s great pleasures, hands down. It’s a truly American cuisine and a unique culture all to our own. A place that’s been celebrating that amazing culture since 1941 is Dickey’s Barbecue Pit.
Dickey’s Barbecue Pit
Talk about a true American success story. In 1941, Travis Dickey, a World War II veteran, opened the first Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Dallas, Texas. Dickey was a true Texan that simply loved 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. Dickey’s Barbecue Pit expanded throughout the Dallas Fort Worth area, with Franchising started in 1994 after loyal guests and barbecue fanatics demanded more locations.
Today there are more than 550 locations in 44 states, making it the country’s largest barbecue chain. And the food is still awesome. The meat is tender and juicy and the sides are packed with flavor. It’s really a perfect meal for those nights when you just don’t have the time or the desire to cook. It’s easy and good!!
The taste of that slow cooked meat and those down home sides always calls to me. It never gets old and I never can seem to have enough. Dickey’s does it right. I’m talking about a hickory wood pit at every location with all those gorgeous meats getting the slow-smoke treatment on-site daily. Hand rubbed, quality meats, smoked low & slow the way it was intended to be. How can you beat that? You cannot.
While beef brisket (with some spicy sauce) is my #1 and pulled pork is a close #2, I really enjoy the entire menu at Dickey’s. The kids love the chicken and my wife loves the turkey and ribs. And oh that kielbasa. How can you go wrong with spicy sausages? You cannot.
As for sides, I love the fried okra and the baked potato casserole. The kids go nuts for the mac & cheese and waffle fries, while Vera loves the cornbread and cabbage slaw. It’s nice to have a long list of options. It’s easy to please everyone that way (which isn’t exactly an easy thing to achieve most days).
Dickey’s Barbecue Pit also has awesome sandwiches, tacos, and kids meals if you want to mix it up. Make sure you come hungry as your plates and sandwiches will be piled high with your choice of meats and your choice of homestyle sides.
The menu is awesome, yes. It’s good to know that when it’s time to have movie night with the kids, bunco with the girls, or game night with the fellas, Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has me covered, man. There’s no doubt that you will wow the crowd with some barbecue deliciousness, too. Dickey’s Meals, especially the amazing Family Pack, is the absolute best bet when you are looking to feed a bunch of hungry people.
Depending on the Pack, Dickey’s can feed from 2 to 12 people. The picnic pack is great for my family, but we tend to order the Family Pack so we have some awesome leftovers for lunch the next day. There’s just something about that brisket that really tastes awesome that second day. If you’re not quite sure what Pack you would need, here’s a quick rundown of your options:
- Picnic Pack
- Feeds 2-4
- Includes: 1lb of your favorite barbecue meat, 2 medium sides, 4 buttery rolls and barbecue sauce
- Family Pack
- Feeds 4-6
- Includes: Choice of 2 meats (1lb each), 3 medium sides, 6 buttery rolls and barbecue sauce
- XL Pack
- Feeds 6-8

- Party Pack
- Feeds 10-12

There are some options here, some very good options. It really depends on how large your party is and how much food you are looking to devour. Don’t be shy, now, we are talking about barbecue here.
Get In My Belly
While it’s nice to have options, all of this thinking about barbecue really just makes me want to have barbecue. The question now seems to be…how does said barbecue make an appearance at my house? Make it easy like I do and dabble in a little of that online ordering magic. When you Order Dickey’s Online, it’s really fast and easy, and it’s always ready for pickup. I love using the app, too. Super easy as well.
I can’t wait, though, because Direct Delivery is coming soon!! Yes, please, bring the brisket to me.
More Value For You
The value you get at Dickey’s is really good. You get a ton of good food at a great price. The packs make it even better. While this is all well and good, there’s one more little money saver I needed to share with you. Every Sunday at every Dickey’s Barbecue, kids eat free*. Indeed, you read that correctly my friend.
