GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - If you drove by the corner of Washington and Demers Ave. in Grand Forks, you may have found yourself craving a barbecue dinner just from the smell.

The new Dickey's Barbecue Pit is smoking meats as it prepares to open on Thursday this week.

The southern barbecue eatery is located in the former Mi Mexico location at 623 South Washington.

The owner says the chain will offer eight smoked meats on the menu and a variety of home-style sides.

The restaurant will seat 70 people in its main dining room and feature a banquet room for different groups.

"It's the number one barbecue franchise in the world, which is based out of Dallas, Texas. We passed up Famous Dave's a few months ago. We will be the 236th store to open nationwide," owner Josh Becker said.

Menu items will feature smoked meats that include pulled pork and beef brisket.
