Sorry it's closing

Really good BBQ. And I like their sauce especially. Stew is good though not great in my opinion. They are closing Dec 31 but locals hope family dispute can be resolved and it will continue. I'm hoping too because there aren't many of these places left and we need all of them!!

local landmark on south main st. jonesboro. nothing to look at, except the lines for lunch daily. the regular sandwich is BIG, and it always pleases. small dining room is available...very plain , but who cares. Oh, sometimes distance is measured from DEANS...just past deans, or you've gone too far!......it's a great place. just go south on main street!

Dean's is a true dive by it's looks, but the food is some of the best you can get in GA. Always ask for Dean's sauce, they like to us Sweet Baby Ray on their ribs and chicken, but the Dean's sauce is so much better.

Heard about this place on Trip Advisor but was hesitant when we pulled up to the location. Great BBQ - nothing fancy just a good sandwich for the price. Staff was very nice.

First time experience there. How have I missed it all of these years? It's easy I promise! It's just back off the road but if you are not looking for it you will drive right by it without even noticing it. From the outside it reminds you of an old style grocery/convenience store. First of all don't expect to have... More

I have been eating Dean's BBQ since I was big enough to walk. Great BBQ from really great local people. My mom recently died at 101 yrs. old. As long as I can remember I picked up our lunch every Saturday from Dean's because it was her favorite place to eat. They also serve some of the best sweet tea... More

This is about the most tasteless BBQ out there. It sort of reminds me of Fresh Air and I'm not a fan of theirs either. It has no smoky flavor and the sauce is nothing but a biting mix of ketchup, vinegar, and sugar. The stew, which they are known for, looks like it just came out of a blender.... More

Pretty Good Barbecue. The staff is very nice. Been a part of the community before Tara even became a real road. Prices are excellent and the parking lot stays crowded!! I recommend.
