The popular Texas-based barbecue chain has finally arrived in Folsom…just in time for summer.

Located on Riley Street in the same shopping center as Walmart, Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is the perfect spot to grab a hearty, on-the-go lunch or enjoy a sit-down dinner with the family (kids eat free every Sunday!). The homey décor boasts large wooden benches and checkerboard tablecloths that look picturesque underneath a big plate of barbecue. Sample smoked meats like Texas-style brisket, Southern pulled pork, Virginia ham, tender chicken and turkey breasts, pork ribs and a variety of sausages. Try any meat in their specialty barbecue sandwich, which comes dressed with pickles, onions and barbecue sauce. For those with big appetites, I recommend one of their meat plates – specifically, the Two-Meat Plate (why choose one when you could have two?). After sampling their sliced beef brisket and Southern-style pulled pork, I was in barbecue heaven. Each bite was complemented by the addition of spicy, tangy barbecue sauce. The meat was tender and smoky, with a perfect, slightly chewy (in a good way) texture. In addition, Dickey’s offers a wide variety of sides – don’t miss out on their rich and creamy macaroni and cheese. It might be tough, but save room for the free vanilla soft-serve offered with every meal! Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, 1016 Riley Street, Suite 5, Folsom, 916-550-9525,
