Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Richland reopening tomorrow morning

RICHLAND, Wash. — After months of locked doors, Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Richland will unlock them, and it’ll be with a new owner.

The restaurant off of Queensgate Drive and Duportail Street. They closed their doors in June 2019 unexpectedly. It’s now under new ownership, which is a local man.

“We like our restaurants. We like our franchises,” said Kenny Teasdale, owner. “Whether this is a franchise or not, you know, we still have a really good product.”

Doors will open on Thursday morning at 11:00. They’ll offer $3 pulled pork sandwiches until 2 p.m. as a promotion. The normal hours are from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Teasdale said he’s excited to bring another barbecue joint.

“Like I said, there’s a very large following for the Dickey’s brand in Tri-Cities and again, we need more barbecue here,” Teasdale said.

Kids also eat free every Sunday. Additionally, they’ll be serving bottled beer, which the old owner did not have.
