We had a great breakfast this morning! Try the Huevos Ranchero it's amazing! Food was great, service was even better!! Thank you Brenda Ryan!! If you're in Down Town Punta Gorda Dean"s is a must try for any meal of the day, especially breakfast.

“Waitress at Dean's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

We are snowbirds and so are down in this lovely area for only 6 months .One of our favorite wing places is here. Most of the food is great and the portions more than adequate. One of the main reasons that a whole group of us go there at least 2 to 3 times a week ,is the service by Brandi. She is one of the hardest working girls there . We always appreciate her looking after us so efficiently and appreciate her kindness . Dean,s South of the Border is lucky to have her look after their customers. Make sure you ask for Brandi as your server.

“always busy for a reason”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

This place is always packed & for good reasons. The menu offers quite a variety. The fried pickles are very yummy! Their portions are large. If you are there for lunch, the BBQ pork sandwich is a fantastic deal & very tasty!
