Nobody knows how to do barbecue food like the Texans.

Dickey’s is a family-owned Texas barbecue restaurant that has been running for 77 years.

With nearly 600 branches across the USA, it has decided to open its first international branch in Abu Dhabi. How lucky are we?

Renowned for its slow-smoked meats such as beef brisket, beef sausage, turkey and sausage, plus home-style Texan food like mac and cheese and waffle fries, the first store is set to open in Yas Mall in October.

American barbecuing focuses on cooking meat in specially designed smokers using hickory wood.

This allows the meat to slowly tenderise and capture the delicious smokey flavour. 

Dickey’s have been serving up the same high-quality recipes for generations, and the open kitchen at the Yas Island branch will allow diners to see the Pit Masters (or chefs) in action as they wait for their meals.

Dickey’s prides itself on its southern hospitality, and the rustic interiors and country vibe of the new eatery makes it feel like you have been transported right over to the lone star state.

So get practicing your southern drawl, we have a feeling that this Texan gem will be a great addition to our already amazing foodie scene.
