What better way to kick off the weekend, than with some seriously saucy news? We hope you’re hungry Calgary because Dickey’s – the largest BBQ concept in the world has announced that they’re opening a location right here in cowtown.

With over 550 locations all over the U.S. and the world, this popular meat-loving joint recently opened its first Alberta Location in Edmonton – but that was just the beginning.

Best known for serving Texas-style brisket, wings, ribs, pulled pork and sandwiches with a selection of sides like waffle fries, coleslaw, and baked beans – Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is an American staple.

In fact, they’re so well-liked, that they plan on opening 11 more restaurants over the next 10 years – just in Calgary alone.

“It’s always exciting to debut our Legit. Texas. Barbecue.™ in a new community, but it’s particularly exciting when our brand crosses borders,” said Jim Perkins, the Executive Vice President of International Sales and Support in a press release.

“We look forward to introducing our tastes of Texas to many more Canadians across the country.”
