Good food and service

Not the BEST BBQ in the world but pretty darn good. Been around since the 40's, Deans is very consistent and I would recommend this for a business lunch or just lunch any time. The only negative is that they don't have a public restroom (couldn't wash hands before eating).

I have been eating from Dean's since 2000. The meat is flavorful and well prepared. The conversation is always delightful. And you must try a piece of cake while there.

We are glad to have Dean's BBQ so close to our home. It is way too far for us to drive to Lexington, NC to get our favorite. This is a nice alternative.

Deans bbq is locally owned and operated, all by family. Roger continued this amazing small town restaurant and now his family will ensure they carry forward as always. They don't know a stranger while serving the best tasting food around.

What can I say? I love Dean's. It is foundational to Jonesboro. No frills, just great bbq. The family is friendly and hospitable. Very appreciative of your business.

I used to come here a lot in the '90's. Not much has changed. And that's a good thing. Pulled pork sandwich tasty as ever. Brought a colleague with me and he also enjoyed it. Great family owned business!

This is a classic hole in the wall, Souther BBQ joint, which is my favorite type of place. I've eaten here several times in the past and thought it was not as good this time. I liked the pork sandwich and vinegar sauce. I believe they cook hams rather than shoulders/butts. I didn't care for the Brunswick stew and think... More

I recently saw a BBQ special on our local PBS channel and since I love BBQ I couldn't wait to try some of the ones featured. We went to Dean's first since we were going to be on the area. I had read some of the reviews on TripAdvisor & was glad I ordered the BBQ sauce on the side....soooo... More

Passed Dean's many times over the years, and finally stopped in with a friend. The atmosphere is 1960 with A/C! The Original Pork Plate was served with coleslaw and Brunswick stew. The pork was served very wet (floating) and was likely ham cuts - average and served hot.
