Dickey’s Barbecue Pit will be opening a new location in the recently renovated Montgomery Village Center, next to the upcoming Kobe Japan (which is next to the recently opened Moe’s).
Dickey’s Barbecue Pit previously opened its second Maryland location in Montgomery County when it opened in Germantown in February 2013. The restaurant closed the following year and reopened under new management in July 2014 before closing permanently in early 2016. The first Maryland location was in Gambrills, but has since closed. Currently there are nearby locations in Pasadena, MD, two in Fairfax VA, and one in Alexandria VA. There is no expected opening date at the moment.
Dickey’s Barbecue was founded by Travis Dickey with the goal of authentic slow smoked barbecue. More than 80 years later, the Dallas-based family-run barbecue franchise still offers a quality selection of signature meats, home style sides, tangy barbecue sauce and free kids meals every Sunday. All meats are slow smoked onsite in each restaurant. The fast-casual family-friendly concept has expanded to over 400 locations in 40 states and holds the title of the world’s largest barbecue franchise. The original location, 4610 N Central Expy, Dallas, TX, is still in operation. The restaurant began franchising in 1994 and Technomic named Dickey’s Barbecue Pit the “Fastest-growing restaurant chain in the country” in 2012. The same year, QSR Magazine included Dickey’s Barbecue Pit on its list of “Best Franchise Deals.”
