Dickey’s Barbecue Pit will soon be calling the former Mi Mexico location home, according to Reggie.
“When I moved to North Dakota, I looked up barbecue and all that came up were Chinese food restaurants,” said franchise owner Josh Becker. “There was a desperate need for barbecue here.”
Becker is right. The only time we get good barbecue up here is when the Famous Dave’s truck comes up from Fargo for the Art Fest or something. Wild Hog in south Grand Forks is alright, but I found their version a bit dry. I do need to get there again and try the ribs, though.
Dickey’s was started in Texas in 1941. They serve hickory-smoked meats like beef brisket, pulled pork, polish sausage and more. Sides include cole slaw, barbecue beans, potato salad and French fries. There are over 200 locations across the country.
A Fargo Forum review found the meat tasty, but the sides lacking.
Dickey’s is expected to open in mid May. I can’t wait.
