Not advertised very much. Food is not as good as it used to be. you might miss the pl ace unless you know where it's located. Just disappointing.

There are so many great and authentic things about Dean's that it's worth a trip for someone in Atlanta. We stopped there on the way to the Gone with the Wind Museum, another period piece. Dean's has the best pulled pork sandwich I've ever had. The atmosphere is real, so real. Folks behind the counter are friendly and the dining... More

Fast, friendly and reasonably priced. Darn good BBQ and the Brunswick stew is as good as if not better than the sandwich. I get both.

This small family operation has been doing it right for decades. It's a little pricey but worth it. I recommend getting the plate and sharing with a friend. They hand smoke and make everything from scratch, so it's a bit rustic. Well actually it's a lot rustic. When someone says Hole in the wall BBQ joint This is exactly what... More

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!!

This is a family restaurant that started in 1947. It is not fancy, but that is not the reason people come here. It's for the BBQ! Dean's smokes pork shoulders & serves it chopped with a vinegar based sauce. Just visited last Friday after a long absence (my fault). I had the Original Combination Plate. Well worth the price! BBQ,... More

This little roadside BBQ restaurant has some of the best BBQ I have ever had. It is cooked on a fire pit and is really good.

Dean's has been selling BBQ since 1946 in the same little house. For $5 you get a sandwich and a drink. Load it with their BBQ sauce and prepare to enjoy fine eating. The parking lot is always full, testimony to good food they serve.
