Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has opened its latest location in Herndon.

The restaurant will host its grand opening on May 4 at the Herndon Centre (494 Elden Street, Suite 230). It is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.

Mosni and Dhaval Shah — the restaurant’s franchisees — said they are excited to bring quality barbecue to the area.

“Many residents of Herndon and the surrounding areas have been wanting quality barbecue and we are up to the task of providing it to them,” the Shahs told FFXnow.

Pit bosses Willow Brown and Kelvin Ebron have more than 30 years of restaurant and barbecue experience. The chain is known for its brisket and ribs.

“Many say barbecue is the gateway to togetherness and we want to bring everyone together to enjoy some ‘Legit Texas Barbecue,'” the Shahs said.

Other items on the menu include loaded baked potatoes, pit-smoked wings and pit-smoked meats. The business has locations throughout the country. There are currently nine in Virginia, including one in Fairfax, Sterling and Alexandria.
