The chairman of Dallas-based Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants Inc. will make a special appearance today at a recently opened Dickey's restaurant in Sacramento.
Roland Dickey will be at 4630 Natomas Blvd., from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., giving away 50 copies of his book, "Mr. Dickey's Barbecue Cookbook."
The restaurant will serve discounted food, and the chain said other Dickey's outlets in the Sacramento region also will have discounts on food.
Local Dickey's franchisee Jared Katzenbarger said he will award free barbecue for a year to three customers.
