FIRST SIGN OF DICKEY’S APPEARS IN ASHBURN

Look what we spotted parked in the Ashbrook Commons parking lot today — the Dickey’s Barbecue catering truck. It’s the first tangible sign of the future Dickey’s Barbecue Pit restaurant that’s coming to the center in a few months.

Back in February, The Burn broke the news that a Dickey’s location was coming to the shopping center at Route 7 and Ashburn Village Boulevard. It’s taking over the space vacated by Jerry’s Subs & Pizza.

If you haven’t tried Dickey’s, it’s a national barbecue chain specializing in meats slow roasted over wood-fired pits. We’re talking beef brisket, pulled pork and pork ribs, marinated chicken and more. The Ashburn location — the first Dickey’s in Loudoun County — is aiming to be open later this summer.
