We always make it a priority to stop here when we are traveling. The small family pack will get you four sandwiches for a little better price. It comes separated-4 buns, with a container of meat making leftovers (if there are any!) easier to negotiate. BBQ is 5 star. Many different sauces on the side for your own style. Service... More

This is casual restaurant where you order at the counter and get served. The ribs are sooo good that I am afraid I didn't try any other meats.

A good friend and I were in Dexter today. We decided to have lunch at Dexter Bar-B-Que. We both enjoyed their three rib dinner plate. Food was delicious!
