"This is something that I have always wanted to pursue, but wanted to approach the process thoroughly," shares Agustin. After noticing the lack of quality slow-smoked barbecue in the area, he found the perfect option through Dickey's Barbecue Pit. Agustin also owns and operates an engineering firm in the area. "Isela and I are excited to bring a convenient catering and lunch option to the surrounding business community. We have been working tirelessly to get to know our future guests and welcome them to our newest endeavor."
