Get Delicious All-American Fare At Dickey’s Barbecue Pit

All-American fare at Dickey's Barbecue Pit.

Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is a fast-casual restaurant known for its delicious smoked meats and all-American home-style sides. It’s also the largest barbecue franchise in the United States. The first location opened in 1941, and recently, the franchise opened up a new restaurant in Bolingbrook, less than a 15-minute drive from Brookdale on the Park.

About Dickey’s Barbecue Pit

The franchise is named after Travis Dickey, who opened the first Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Dallas, Texas. The brand has come a long way since its inception. However, its restaurants still use the freshest ingredients and the chefs still smoke all meats on-site. Additionally, many of the meats are sustainably raised, antibiotic-free, and additive-free.

Step into the Bolingbrook restaurant, and you’ll feel right at home immediately. Long wooden tables provide plenty of room for diners. So, bring your family and friends! A mural on the wall shows the classic cuts of pork, so you’ll know what to order. Best of all, you’ll get to savor the delicious smells wafting from the smoking area, while waiting for your meal.

The Menu

At Dickey’s, you order at the counter, and your meal is prepared while you wait. If you’re looking for a quick bite, try one of the sandwiches. Pulled pork is a classic choice. Locals also love the brisket sandwich, which is served on a soft, brioche bun. 

In the mood for a bigger meal? Dickey’s combo plates let you try two slow-smoked types of meat at once. The ribs are an exceptional choice and are always fall-off-the-bone tender. Meals come with a roll and two delicious sides. Be sure to try the macaroni and cheese, a classic option. Guests also swear by the baked potato casserole, which consists of mashed potatoes baked with cheddar cheese, bacon, and green onions.

All in all, Dickey’s Barbecue Pit offers delicious options for everyone.
