Dining News: Dickey's BBQ to Open Near Tank House BBQ

Dickey's BBQ is set to open at 19th & J, just a block from the recently opened Tank House BBQ.

The notice for their liquor license went up on Oct. 10, and a look inside their windows this past weekend showed that the interior remodeling is well under way. Given the progress they've made, I'd be surprised if they weren't open by Thanksgiving.


There are 6 Dickey's BBQ locations within 20 miles of Downtown, including Natomas, Elk Grove, Roseville, Rancho Cordova (coming soon) and Folsom. The new downtown location apparently shares owners with the Natomas location, according to liquor license records.

I've never eaten at Dickey's BBQ, but I have friends who have raved about the Natomas location. I hope the Downtown /midtown area is big enough to support two new BBQ entrants. While one is a bar that serves BBQ and the other location is a fast-casual restaurant, given their proximity to each other, they may be fighting for the same customers. Let's hope they both succeed.

Addendum on 10/23: Thanks to reader @CDub2000 for the original tip on this!

Hi I am the local owner of Dickeys on J St. I appreciate the positive out look regarding Dickey and the Tank House. I feel both of our locations only bring an enhanced synergy to the area and will benefit us all.
