If you live in Anna (or Melissa, Weston, Van Alstyne and surrounding areas) and love Barbecue here’s some exciting news: Dickey’s Barbecue is coming to Anna! What’s so great about Dickey’s? Smoked Pit Barbecue...or as they put it, “Since 1941 Dickey’s Barbecue has been offering a quality selection of signature meats, home style sides, and tangy barbecue sauce. All meats are seasoned and slow smoked on-site in each restaurant.”
And this particular new Dickey’s restaurant has some additional significance beyond great barbecue. After working as a Dickey’s barbecue restaurant manager for 17 years, Steve Dellenbaugh decided to open his own location in Anna. This is a first for the Dickey’s organization. Roland Dickey, Jr., president of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. stated in a press release, “We’re so proud that Steve enjoyed our concept so much that he wanted to open his own restaurant. He’s already a big part of the Dickey’s family and with his passion for great barbecue we are excited to see great things for this new location.”
Why open a Dickey’s Barbecue in Anna? New franchise owner Steve Dellenbaugh summed it up this way, “I’ve spent the last 23 years in the barbecue business so I know the Dickey’s concept works…I grew up in a small town like Anna and I can’t wait to get involved in the community.”
Positioned on the South East corner of I-75 and FM 455 this prime location provides easy access for not only Anna residents but the surrounding communities as well. The opening is scheduled for later this summer.
This is just one more piece of news that supports the City of Anna’s reputation as one of the fastest growing cities in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex. Anna’s approximate 8400 residents within the city limits enjoy a relaxed pace, a friendly community, and good schools along with easy access to McKinney, Frisco, and the full Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex. Plus, you can add affordable housing to that list. According to the Collin County Association of Realtors’ April 2012 report, YTD average home sale price in Anna was $132,696.
So congratulations to Steve Dellenbaugh, Dickey’s Barbecue and the City of Anna. We’re looking forward to that grand opening!

"Erin and her husband have bought and sold more than half a dozen properties personally and so, she has had a variety of experiences both buying, selling, as well as renting homes. As my realtor, she showed her extensive knowledge of the process and (as a former teacher for both PISD as well as FISD) the reputation of the surrounding schools. She is informed, hard-working, caring, and willing to do whatever it takes to find just what was needed. We have bought two homes with her - and would do it again!
