Dickey's Barbecue Pit, a fast-casual chain with a handful of Pikes Peak region restaurants, opened in downtown Colorado Springs on Monday at 130 E. Pikes Peak Ave., in the first floor of the Colorado Square building at Pikes Peak and Nevada avenues.
The downtown Dickey's is operating as a smaller, satellite location - targeting the on-the-go lunch crowd with a limited menu of sandwiches, sides, chips, salads and deserts.
Its hours are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday; the restaurant has seating for 10 to 15 people and carryout service. Unlike other locations, no meats are being smoked on site.
Texas-based Dickey's Barbecue bills itself as the nation's largest barbecue chain with more than 530 locations in 43 states.
