We really like it!

We were in Sikeston for the Rodeo weekend and stopped in Dexter BBQ (of Sikeston not the one in Dexter - same group). We, group of four enjoyed the meal. The servings were large and very good. Staff was very nice and helpful. Always gave us what we asked. Will return when back in town.

Dexter BBQ was a great food stop for us on the way to St. Louis. Delicious BBQ and brisket or ribs. Great sides like potato salad. Everything fresh and tasty. Efficient helpful staff. No frills. Great food.

Please get more desert! The man warmed my brownie in a lil microwave that was right there in the front, and made me feel like I was wasting my money. At least hide the microwave in the back

Dexter Barbeque has very good pulled pork sandwiches with lots of meat spilling out served on Texas toast with crunchy coleslaw. Makes me want one just thinking about it. They also have smoked chicken one day a week, Wednesday, I think. It is always a little dry for me, but where else can I find BBQ chicken around here?

Stopped by for dinner while on a road trip. We are pretty well versed with BBQ and quite picky, however Dexter's did not disappoint. The brisket was delicious, moist and flavorful. The ribs were smoky and moist. We added a bit of bbq sauce to the pulled pork but didn't care much for the sauce. The pork was moist enough... More

We were a group of 11 and every one just loved it but I felt it had good favor but was a little salty for me.

I was passing through town, staying over nite at a local hotel, and in the mood for BBQ. When I noticed that this place only has soft drinks, I chose to get my dinner to go, and ate in my hotel room where I could enjoy a can of beer with my dinner. I chose the combo dinner of ribs... More

Nice folks and solid food. Have a chicken special on Thursdays that's a good deal. Good place to get in and get out.

I frequently eat at Dexter BBQ and it is always delicious. I don't eat in too often because I feel like the atmosphere inside is boring and plain! I like to get the carry out and take it back to the house where it is anything but boring and plain. Definitely worth your time to check out the food at... More
