No matter how you spell it, BBQ, barbeque or the right way, barbecue, Dickey’s Barbecue Pit understands what it means to serve Legit. Texas. Barbecue™.

Dickey's Barbecue Pit is a true American success story. In 1941, Travis Dickey, a World War II veteran, opened the first Dickey's Barbecue Pit. The brand has come a long way from Travis Dickey’s first location. But, some things never change. 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. And just like always, kids eat free on Sunday. Dickey's Barbecue Pit is located on Centerpoint Way, just steps from Interstate 55, Route 66 and the Chicagoland Speedway.
