We were expecting great bar-b-que, which it was, but rarely can you find cole slaw like your momma made it. Dean was very entertaining. The atmosphere was exactly what it should be because the food is the highlight.

Simply the best BBQ. It is well worth at least an hours drive just to try it. Don't forget extra sauce.

The pork sandwich is awesome and so is their slaw. Good food at a good price. Its a small place but it has been in the neighborhood forever and everyone knows the family owned place. Lunch is always good and plenty of people come by to eat or pick up. You can also buy ribs, chicken and stew.

I usually get the two sandwich combo that comes with a bag of chips and a drink. The first sandwich is barely lukewarm. By the time I get to my second sandwich, it is cold. They do not add enough sauce so the sandwiches are dry. They do fill the bun with plenty of meat. To me the meat doesn't... More

This small BBQ restaurant has been at the same location for many years! I have been going there for 20 yrs. Most of their business is carryout. The sandwiches have gotten smaller & the prices have gone up. However, they recently did lower the prices & now fit the size of the sandwich. The sauce is unique with a tang... More

Deans BBQ has been opened here forever it seems and for a job reason! They do BBQ right. I stop in often for the $5.00 lunch deal where you get a sandwich, chips and a drink.... hard to beat! When in Jonesboro, travel south leaving town on main st. And look for the little wite housewife all of the cars... More

This is the real deal! It's the best BBQ and it's longevity proves it. It has been in business since 1947. It's casual and is a family owned - operated business. You owe it to yourself to go and enjoy this wonderful experience.
