The Lansing Foodies Have Struck Again

The Lansing Foodies Facebook page is always a well of information, and yummy food photos too! And it's because of them we now know that Lansing will soon be welcoming a new chain barbecue place: Dickies Barbecue Pit.

One of the Lansing Foodies snapped a photo of the work in progress. Dickies Barbecue Pit is going to be setting up shop in the old Frandor's Deli spot in Frandor.

It was definitely sad to see Frandor Deli close when it did, as it had been a favorite in that spot for many years. However, a new place opening up means new businesses coming to the area and new jobs. And in my experience, Dickies is pretty yummy. Plus, they do trays of food to serve large groups of people in addition to your standard take-out or dine-in.

No word yet on exactly when they'll be opening, just a general "opening soon" sign. But by the looks of it, they're already working on updating the inside. Get ready for some more barbecue in Lansing!
