Our menu is simple, and its focus is on on the meat. We also have an amazing draft beer selection and are constantly rotating our taps, so we keep an eye out for variety and seasonality. We also select beers we feel pair well with our food. We make our sides and sauces from scratch, as well, and always use fresh ingredients in everything we make. What made you want to work with food? When did you first develop that passion? My passion began when I first started eating barbecue around the United States. I developed an awareness of how barbecue is done regionally throughout the country, and that inspired me to do my own backyard cooking—and eventually, to open my own restaurant.

  • Dickey's Barbecue Pit
    Today, the Dickey’s Barbecue Pit sign may be a ubiquitous symbol representing good ol’ Texas barbecue, but when Travis Dickey first opened his Dallas shop in 1941, the sign had to share space with advertisements to help pay rent. In the 70 years since then, the Dickeys have done well for themselves, with their initial store spawning a slew of franchises throughout the country. Though the barbecue at each outpost is no longer under the hand of one of Dickey’s descendants, each shop still smokes their own meats in-house to create the signature Texan flavor that infuses their briskets, pulled pork, and fall-off-the-bone ribs. Meals can come in any size, from the a la carte sandwiches to platters that incorporate a chosen number of meats with a buttery roll, pickle, ice cream, and two homestyle sides. Whether serving up their dishes in the dining room or packing them up for take-away or catering, the staff ensures that each client gets a taste of Texas home cooking without the hassle rubbing every dish on a campfire crock-pot.
