What a Pleasant Surprise? Dickey’s Barbecue is Coming to Town



Joseph and Amy Meadows will open their first Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, the largest quick-serve barbecue chain in the country, in Pleasant Hill.

“Pleasant Hill is missing fast casual and take-out restaurant options,” said franchise owner Amy Meadows. “We love the menu, variety of food options and affordability that Dickey’s provides – fast and healthy is a major plus.”

The couple’s new location is at 2634 Pleasant Hill Road, near Diablo Valley College. According to the owners this location will be open in June. This is the first franchise for the couple.

“We love the accessibility of Dickey’s with quality barbecue at a reasonable price,” said Amy Meadows. “You could eat lunch every day at Dickey’s and never break the bank!”
