“WONDERFUL BAR-B-QUE!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

My husband and I were in the area and wanted some bar-b-que. We moved here from Tennessee 4 years ago and have not been lucky enough to find any good bar-b-que. We have eaten at a number of bar-b-que restaurant in Atlanta, but none have come even close to what we were used to in Tennessee. It really blew our mouths wide open with the great taste and we even ordered another sandwich because it was just that good. We don't live close to this place, but we will be back, because its the best we have tasted since we have been in Georgia. The employees were nice and friendly and it was a very comfortable feeling. We rate this restaurant and 10+++++.

“A great place to get BBQ !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

I was introduced to this place by my husband, who grew up eating Dean's Bbq. You will love the family that runs this place! They are smiles and using have a joke for you when you come in. Great BBQ sandwiches and sauce. I usually will get a slice of cake also.

“Loved the pulled pork”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

Jonesboro lines the railway just south of Atlanta, and on the way into town from Highway 41 is Dean's Barbeque, a Jonesboro institution. We stopped by intending to get take out, knowing that there is an eat-in area, but this is basically a take out stand. We ordered the special which included 8 buns, a pound of pulled pork, a pound of cole slaw and a large container of Brunswick stew. The pulled pork, which we topped with cole slaw, was excellent. We did not care for the stew, which was too bland for us, and we didn't like the consistency (almost pureed) and lack of vegetables. The guys at Dean's told us that we would get 8 sandwiches out of that pound of pulled pork, and we did. We make our own pulled pork at home, and we try lots of barbeque throughout the Southeast, and we definitely recommend Dean's. But not the stew. If you go on Tuesday, go before 4 p.m. because they close early.

“best barbeque”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

Best barbeque anywhere! Meat is very moist and a good barbeque taste. Stew is very good also.
Small town atmosphere.

“Best in Class, likely best in Georgia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

This is an old style, family owned barbeque stand, the type that used to be found all over the south. I have been eating here since the 1970's. The menu is limited, though they have just added ribs and chicken --which I hear are great. you can also get the sandwhich with end cuts, if you want some more of the char. Most folks get food to go or to eat in the car. They do have a small dinning area adjacent to the "stand."
The pork is why you come, though the stew and cole slaw are also good. The price is right, the service fast, the folks friendly. Dean's is worth a trip.
