Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has prided itself on serving authentic, slow-smoked barbecue for the past 75 years to people across the nation. Dickey’s in Minnesota now has the opportunity to not only serve the people of Minneapolis, but also serve them while they are enjoying one of the nation’s favorite pastimes, professional basketball.

“The Dickey family congratulates Tom Eggerud on his new venture with Dickey’s Barbecue Pit,” says Roland Dickey, Jr., CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “Dickey’s is expanding rapidly throughout the nation and we are proud to have the opportunity to open our first Dickey’s location in an arena.”

Tom Eggerud is the owner of two Dickey’s locations, making him an expert at delicious, Texas-style barbecue. When the Target Center reached out to him with an opportunity for Dickey’s to have concessions stands at the arena it was something that he could not turn down. For the remainder of the Timberwolves season, Eggerud and his staff will be serving Texas-style barbecue to fans and foes of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Though there is not a full menu in the concession stands, Eggerud offers delicious barbecue sandwiches, savory sides and Minnesota craft beer.

The Target Center is currently remodeling, and Eggerud looks forward to the opportunity to have Dickey’s concession stands in the updated arena in the coming years. “It is a great opportunity to showcase our brand at various events, as the Target Center hosts over 200 events a year,” says Eggerud. “We are excited and proud to serve delicious, slow-smoked barbecue to its guests.”
