Default Another restaurant coming to Grand Traverse

From the Daily Sun Facebook page:
"Brownwood’s reputation for good eats just grew a little larger with Dickey’s Barbecue Pit leasing a storefront at Grand Traverse Plaza at Brownwood. Franchise owners Johnathan & Stephanie Frederick anticipate an early first quarter opening next year. World War II veteran Travis Dickey opened the first restaurant in 1941 in Dallas. The company now operates more than 500 locations in 44 states."

We have a couple up north. Order at counter and get it when your number is called. It’s not the best bbq I have ever had, but more in the middle. Sides are ok. One problem I have is my clothes smell like smoke when I leave, so I don’t go often.

slows bbq in Detroit, is our favorite, it’s a 45 minute drive, but worth it. Bbq is regional, so it is hard to tell who will like Dickey’s or not.

Being from Ft Worth I am very familiar with Dickies. It sounds as though it is the same one. I am eager to try it. It wasn’t the best Barbecue in town but it was good. My son went to high school with their daughter.

Oboy! We had one in KC and ate there quite a bit; a lot better flavor than Oakwood here.

There was a story in Villages News and then this thread, all back in October that his place would be opening early 2019. Has anyone seen if they have opened? Have not read anymore since October, didn't think it would take that long to build since they're in a shopping center.

From Villages News -

Grand Traverse Plaza will welcome a famed barbecue restaurant to the shopping center near Brownwood.

Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is expected to make its Villages debut early next year.

In 1941, Travis Dickey, a World War II veteran, opened the first Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Dallas. Dickey was a true Texas character, blessed with the gift of gab and the love of 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 still slow smokes all meats on-site just the same way they did in 1941. The menu features beef brisket, pulled pork, St. Louis style ribs, polish sausage, spicy cheddar sausage, smoked turkey, and marinated chicken, with an extensive array of homestyle sides from jalapeño beans to macaroni and cheese. Buttery rolls are served with every meal, along with complementary ice cream. Children eat free on Sundays.

Dickey’s now has 600 locations in 43 states.

Had one back home. Meat was good. I renamed the potato salad "mustard pudding".

I drove by today since no one replied. The sign is in the window, it's right next to Flippers. It appears like no one has done a lick of work.

I agree with thelegges about Dickies (pretty good for fast food BBQ) and Slowes in Detroit.
