Texan Brings a Piece of the Lone Star State to Tri-Cities with Dickey’s Barbecue Pit

August 26, 2014

Dan Pelfrey grew up eating barbecue in Texas and on Thursday, August 28 at 11 a.m., he’ll bring a little bit of Texas to the Tri-Cities when he opens Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Kennewick. To celebrate, he’s throwing a three-day grand opening celebration. Tri-Cities will have more authentic barbecue when Pelfrey opens two more locations in Pasco and Richland by 2016.

“Being a Texan, I wanted to bring authentic Texas barbecue to the area,” said first time owner, Dan Pelfrey. “The brand is loved in other Washington markets and it’ll do great in here too. There’s a lot of tradition here in Tri-Cities and I’m excited to start a new tradition of authentic Texas-style barbecue.”
