The Dallas-based Dickey’s Barbecue Pit chain restaurant is coming to Turlock.
The chain will open a new restaurant at Monte Vista Crossings, next to Jamba Juice, in the former site of Mikalino’s Pizza and Pasta.
Dickey’s Public Relations Manager Kate Morganelli says the store is expected to open by the end of August, and that it will operate from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
“Dickey’s is excited to be coming soon to Turlock. We can’t wait to start serving authentic pit-smoked meat in Turlock. Dickey’s will offer eight signature meats, like pulled pork and beef brisket, and eleven home-style sides, like mac 'n' cheese and fried okra. Dickey’s slow smokes their meat on-site every day,” she said.
Dickey's offers two free ongoing promotions; free ice cream every day and kids 12 and under eat free every Sunday. Details may be found on the restaurant's website.
Dickey’s currently has over 300 locations in 40 states nationwide. The nearest store is located at 2816 McHenry Ave., in Modesto.
The Turlock location is owned by Rafael Armenta, Jr., a franchisee owner of El Pollo Loco. Armenta was recently recognized for his good deed of giving a $2,200 check to a customer who had his money stolen at a Modesto El Pollo Loco location. He also bought the man lunch.
