Reader Annie sent me this message:
“Dickey’s BBQ in Goleta has closed as of this past weekend. Rep said the location was not good.”
I tried calling Dickey’s Barbecue Pit at 7060 Hollister Avenue in Goleta and was only able to reach their voice mail. When I visited their web site dickeys.com, it no longer lists any locations on the South Coast and says the closest restaurant is in Ventura. The web site for Hollister Village Plaza, where Dickey’s is located, still says the restaurant is open for business as usual so I’ll leave it up to you to make the final call on what is really happening. Dickey’s opened in September 2016.
