Visited the Farmington Mo location. Not yet on Trip Adviser. The restaurant used to be the Pig Iron, great BBQ, friendly atmosphere great food. It was a must visit place on our yearly trek to Bonne Terre Mo. We get there and it has changed to Dexters. Friendly like a fast food restaurant, they... read more

I am not joking when I say, but this is the best BBQ of my life. My hubby (from the Northwest) moaned throughout the meal. We had the pulled pork sandwich, a twice baked potato and he had a side of brisket, pulled pork AND ribs (when in BBq country, eat BBQ!) After eating it, we went looking for houses... More

This place is truly a tiny "hole in the wall" which I'm sure is part of its charm. My parents ran a BBQ restaurant so I ate a ton of the stuff when I was younger, and it is no longer one of my favorite foods. My husband saw the reviews and wanted to try it so we got carry-out... More

Dexters has really good beef brisket and pulled pork BBQ. Having grown up in Texas, I miss beef BBQ now that I live in TN. Both my sons gave Dexters a thumbs up! Quick friendly service and the food comes fast to get you back of the road.

Stopped by Dexter's Bar B Que on the way out of town. Four slabs of ribs to go ! Took it home to the ST. LOUIS folks, all agreed it was better than anything in our town. We have many new places but this stuff was GREAT!

We almost always eat at Sikeston during trips in that area. This time we decided a change from our routine stop would be nice. Dexter had great reviews so we tried it. We were pleased with the service and the food. My companion's pulled pork plate was pleasing to her native Georgia barbecue demands. I loved the huge slab of... More

Very generous portions and sandwiches are very meaty!! They cook beef brisket on Friday and Saturday and when it is gone, it is gone!! Come early for that! Great flavor and sauce for brisket! Great tater salad! Prices charged are very reasonable! Last time I bought a slab of ribs was only $ 14 but that has been at least... More

The prices are reasonable and you get a good portion of food. The servers were very friendly and the food was served fast. The pulled pork was very good but they don't offer a big selection of sauce like I have seen in other Bar B Que restaurants. I will return to this restaurant.
