I've eaten here several times. I've had the brisket sandwich, fries, Cajun fries,pork steak. Brisket is tender and has good flavor. Pork steak is huge and tastes good also. Fries are good, Cajun fries were wayyyyy too salty. If your craving bbq, it'll do. If your looking for something better, your 6 hours away.

Stopped in for barbecue based on reviews and found it very nice. The restaurant is not much, fast food basically. Barbecue is all they serve.

The ribs and pulled pork are both excellent choices. My husband and I eat here quite often. All that work here are very friendly and courteous. When they tell you hello and thank you, you know they really mean it. I don't think you will be disappointed.

We stopped for lunch while driving through town. The parking lot was packed & that's a good sign in our book. We each had the Dexter BBQ sandwich (pulled pork on toasted Texas toast) & baked beans & coleslaw. All was very good & got a bonus of free soft serve ice cream.

Excellent Food, Good Value! The best part of our Dexter visit was the food. We had ribs, brisket, baked potatoes and cole slaw. All excellent. The staff was professional and friendly. The overall feel of the restaurant was somewhere between fast food and sit down dining. Nothing special, but back to the excellent food.....

My family and I've been to Lamberts many many times over the years. But the food really isn't that good and eventually caught enough thrown rolls. So if you've already been there and you're just looking for good food check out Dexter's barbecue. The ribs are amazing that the brisket is incredible!

The BBQ is some of the very best around. I ordered the rib salad and loved it. I will definitely go back and highly recommend it.

...you are looking for sustenance, and Ruby Tuesdays rates high in the town you're in. That said, this BBQ isn't bad. I ordered the pork steak and it was large as advertised and cooked well (albeit, not exactly hot). The sides weren't huge, but they were adequate. Others have complained about the flies, and there were a few, but i... More

I've been here several times and have always been very satisfied. I've never had any food here that I didn't like. Their ribs are very good and so is their loaded potato.
