Dickey's location in Grand Forks

GRAND FORKS - Dickey's Barbecue Pit closed over the weekend, leaving a vacant space at what may be Grand Forks' busiest intersection.

A sign in the chain restaurant's door simply stated "We are permanently closed." A post on the restaurant's Facebook page last week said Dickey's would close Saturday and combine with the location in Fargo.

"We wish the community the best, and will cherish the memories you have given us," the post added. "Thank you for the opportunity to serve you!"

Dickey's, located at the corner of South Washington Street and DeMers Avenue, came under new ownership late last year.

The Dickey's building was home to a Hardee's restaurant from 1974 and 2004 and then Mi Mexico from 2009 to 2011, according to Herald archives. That 2012 story referred to the adjacent intersection as the busiest in town, but drivers had to often wait to access the parking lot.
