Barbecue is a distinctly American art form, much like jazz music and feigning an understanding of jazz music. Discuss the smoky notes with this Groupon.

Dickey's Barbecue Pit
When Travis Dickey opened the first Dickey's Barbecue Pit in Dallas in 1941, he kept his menu small and simple, only cooking up beef brisket, pit hams, and barbecue beans, which he sold alongside potato chips, beer, bottled milk, and sodas. Dickey smoked all of his meat in-house, a practice that put his eatery on the map and one that his sons, Roland and T.D. Dickey, still rely on today.
The menu has expanded since Travis’s time behind the grill, offering plates and sandwiches that brim with nine kinds of barbecued meats, including spicy cheddar sausages, pork ribs, polish sausage, and Texas-style beef brisket that’s chopped to order. Several types of baked potatoes are piled high with meats and cheeses, which diners can wash down with a gallon of tea or Dickey's signature 32-ounce big yellow cup of soda. Staying true to the same spirit of hospitality, cooks always include a buttery roll, a homestyle side, such as jalapeño beans and fried okra, dill pickles, and free ice cream with every meat plate.
This place does BBQ how it should be. cheap, fast, and with decent priced beer.Darcey R., Yelp, 10/31/12
He had the Texas beef brisket and found it to be moist, smokey and plentiful. I opted for pulled pork and also really liked it.Dawn C., Yelp, 1/5/13
