KENNEWICK, Wash. -- A new Texas-style barbecue joint is open right here in the Tri-Cities. Dickey's Barbecue Pit opened this morning.

The first 50 people in line received gift cards for up to $50 to use next time they come. The next 100 people received prizes.

"We're extremely excited, we waited a long time to open the doors and bring Dickey's BBQ Pit here to the Tri-Cities and it's finally here. My favorite is the Mac and Cheese. It's the four cheese blend, off the top, my favorite. And you can't go wrong with the brisket, we actually slow cook that here in-house every day 13-14 hours," said owner Dan Pelfrey.

"It was delicious. I'll bring my family next time," said customer Jildo Mejia.

The franchise offers free ice cream after every meal. And kids eat free on Sundays! It's located off Highway 395 in Kennewick, in the same Plaza as Safeway.
