Candace Lately: Dickey’s Barbecue Pit & other small, regional chains
A few new restaurants have opened up, and there are a few older ones who haven’t made an appearance on my blog because they are in this weird bigger-than-a-local-restaurant but smaller-than-large-chains category. I’ve had a few questions lately from people out of town who either A – don’t realize these are chain restaurants or B – don’t consider them “real” chain restaurants since they’re small or regional. So, if you’re wondering about these ones because you haven’t heard of them, here are my opinions. Here’s an end-of-the-week catch up.
Dickey’s Barbecue Pit
Dickey’s Barbecue Pit just opened in the former Oliverio’s Marketplace location. Oliverio’s Ristorante simply serves lunch at their main location now. Dickey’s is a chain BBQ place, but there aren’t many in the state. And, this is the first one in Morgantown.
