Following up on our original story from February, it seems the Rusnaks have found a spot and will open at 1466 Garden of the Gods Road, #160, near Trinity Brewing Company, sometime in July.
"Everyone is excited to hear a new barbecue restaurant is coming to town," says Bob in a release. "Many people here have lived in Texas and are familiar with Dickey's. They are extremely happy that we are coming to Colorado Springs."

A press release reveals the sticky news that soon Dickey's Barbecue Pit will open a Colorado Springs location. We've e-mailed the company, which seems similar to Rudy's Country Store and Bar-B-Q, for the where and when, and will update when we hear back.
In the meantime, what we do know: The restaurant will be run by Robert and Barbara Rusnak, who are, according to the release, "excited to become a part of this community and really get involved in the schools and local organizations."
The Dallas-based chain, which started in 1941, sports over 200 locations in 36 states and is apparently "well-known for their hot pit-smoked signature meats, complimentary ice cream and the big yellow cups."
"But, we are growing, and growing fast!" says a statement on the company's website. "Dickey’s only began franchising in 1994 and today, we are the largest quick serve chain in the country with locations coast to coast!"
