Since 1941, the Dickey family has taken pride in serving slow-smoked barbecue in their local communities. Today, the Dickey family and its family of restaurants take pride in serving those who serve our communities, local police and firefighters.

This evolution in community involvement and civic stewardship is Barbecue, Boots & Badges. The foundation, enthusiastically led by Chairman and former Dallas Commissioner Maurine Dickey, supports local law enforcement, firefighters and their families. The foundation is national, yet the support is intensely local — benefiting law enforcement and firefighters who put their lives on the line every day, serving the public. This is a way for Dickey’s Barbecue Pit to serve in return.

Barbecue, Boots & Badges also creates partnerships between law enforcement and communities that are crucial in orchestrating crime reduction programs and initiatives.
