Flat Rock Dickey’s Barbecue Pit Reopens For Christmas After Fire

FLAT ROCK, NC (Dec. 23, 2020) – Beloved East Flat Rock barbecue restaurant Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is back up and running after a fire forced the family-owned restaurant to temporarily shutter its doors in September.

After the incident, the Dickey’s located on 576 Upward Rd (Ph: +1 (828) 693-0645) underwent renovations to reopen in time for the holidays.

“We’re proud to be back open and serving the community our signature slow-smoked barbecue,” said Dickey’s Owner/Operator Roy Rodriguez. “This incident coupled with the pandemic certainly wasn’t easy on our restaurant, but through the support of the community we are back and stronger than ever.”

The Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Flat Rock features a full menu of southern favorites including mac n cheese, creamed spinach, potato casserole and slow-smoked meats prepared and smoked on-site over hickory wood such as fall-off-the-bone ribs, competition-style brisket, jalapeño cheddar kielbasa sausage and more.
