“Below average...somebody take there BBQ license!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012 via mobile

I have tried the place twice. The BBQ is average at best. It was watery taste. It is covered with sauce to hide the taste of the meat.

Avoid it if you love BBQ

“Great BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

What is not to like? Pulled pork, smoked ribs and smoked chicken on Wednesdays...all with the great sauce that made them famous...at least famous around here!

“Dexter's has gone down hill”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

I had their ribs which tasted dry and as if they had been refrigerated and then warmed up. Formerly was much better. Local knowledgeable people say Dexters is now much better for groups when the food is prepared and taken directly to the table.

“Great food always a treat to visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

This location is a great place to bring friends and family. The portion sizes are a great value.
Always clean looking and prompt service. You are always made to feel welcomed here by all the staff. Can not wait to go there again.
