The menu includes beef brisket, chicken, turkey, polish-style kielbasa, jalapeno cheddar kielbasa, pulled pork, pork ribs and barbecue honey ham, as well as sandwiches with pit-smoked meats and entree salads.

Dickey’s was founded in 1941 and now has more than 560 locations in 43 states, including the six Kansas City area locations and one in Lawrence.

Dickey’s took a space in the new Shops at Antioch & Vivion. The center, near Antioch Crossing, will have 15,400-square-feet of retail, restaurant and service operations in four buildings.

One former building and part of another have been demolished to increase visibility and allow for the parking lot to be expanded and to improve traffic flow, said John Byram, manager of Byram Real Estate in Prairie Village.

The other buildings have new stucco facades, increased parapet heights, glass storefronts, stone columns, awnings and lighting.
