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.

Great BBQ. Very very plain restaurant. This is a place to eat, not much atmosphere. Inexpensive. Sandwich,drink and chips $5.00. Great stew.

One of the best (along with Sprayberry's in Newnan and Fresh Air in Jackson), it's simple, and it's simply the best pulled pork BBQ sandwich in the area.

Dean's Barbeque is a simple hole in the wall, offering the best barbeque pulled pork sandwich. I used to live ten minutes from there, I moved away more than ten years, and still crave it. When I have a chance, I visit them. I got my Dean's Barbeque cure today :) It's affordable for family too.
