Texas- style BBQ brought to Fullerton

A line of hungry customers, balloons and the smell of barbecue filling the air is what one would have experienced at Dickey’s Barbecue Pit grand opening on Friday Nov. 14.

Dickey’s offers all of the barbecue favorites like beef brisket, pulled pork, chicken and sausage just to name a few. Their plates also come with a choice of homestyle sides that include, barbecue beans, mac & cheese, fried okra, jalapeño beans and many more. Each plate also comes with bread dipped in butter, onions and a pickle. If one is still not full after eating all of that, Dickey’s offers free ice cream with every meal!


“We are definitely a family atmosphere and one of our big things is kids eat free on Sundays.” said Danny DeMarco, owner and operator of the Fullerton Dickey’s.

Dickey’s first opened in Dallas in 1941 and has now grown to a franchise with locations across the nation. It is still family run and one of the fastest growing businesses. DeMarco feels that the Fullerton location is special because of their address being 1941, just like the year the company started.

There are many tables available that can accommodate different party sizes. Televisions align the wall, all showing different games, perfect for any sports fan looking for a place to eat and watch the game.

“Sundays are usually family days but we still wanted people to enjoy the game so we decided to go with the more than normal amount of tv’s that way we could have different college and pro games on.” said DeMarco

The turkey breast and brisket were smoked to a tee. Accompanied by one of the barbecue sauces that they offer really rounded out the flavors. The mac & cheese had large elbow shaped pasta, which helped soak up the nice creamy cheese quality it had. While the waffle cut fries could have been a little bit crispier, their light texture did not leave a heavy feel. As for the rolls, they could have just been a meal in themselves. Each roll is rolled in butter, soft and warm and keeps you wanting more.


For people that need a little bit more help picking out what they would like, or for someone who wants to mix it up from their normal routine, Dickey’s offers a Deal of the Day Monday through Saturday. The deals include two sides and the signature big yellow drink cup for all under nine dollars.

Dickey’s also offers catering for any size party. Box lunches, buffet and full service are all available. For anyone that is looking for an easy holiday meal without having to spend hours in the kitchen, Dickey’s also has those available too. Pre-ordering online is recommended because they do sell out.

With all the different combinations that can be made, this is a place that you will differently want to try over and over again.
