My husband and I will share the half chicken dinner on wed nights once in a while. Tonight's chicken seemed extremely dry and my baked potatoes wasn't done. Told the waitress about the potato and she was very sweet abt getting my a new one. Will question ordering the chicken again.

This place has some delicious barbeque. Everything was delicious.

I had a terrible experience today. I went on my lunch break and only had 30 minutes. I was in line for 15 minutes after ordering. I called inside because I needed to get back to work and was told by the girl that the person in front of me had an issue with their food. Meanwhile, cars are backed up in the drive thru, so can't you have the car pull up to get to the other customers. So the girl tells me that I can come in. I said I don't have a mask. She said it's ok you don't need one to come in!! Then I really knew I wasn't going. They were not very accommodating with the situation, so needless to say I left without getting anything. I spoke to the manager who only explained to me what happened with the car in front of me. They need a better way to handle things during lunch time.

I've eaten at almost every Dexter BBQ, traveling for my job. It's always clean, and really good BBQ.

Review №5

This might be the best BBQ place in the region. Order and pay before seating (minimizes tipping). Free softserve ice cream (self-serve) ... though the ribs used to be better and Fox News was playing on one of the TV's. (wifi pw is "pulledpork")

What can you say about Dexter Bar B Que, other than the best place for bar b que. Love the Cape restaurant so much. We have 1 in Sikeston, but I prefer the Cape 1. The staff was so nice and we got our food fast. OH AND DID I MENTION THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT. If you're in Cape and hungry for some good ole bar b que I highly recommend the pulled pork on texas toast, with no slaw. I know im different.....We will definitely be back.

Review №7

We love this place good food and caring attitude during covid 19 crisis....masking, gloves, no multi use dispensers on tables, distancing, etc. However they have elected to go by the Governors "Open up" rules instead of CDC. They have stopped all safety precautions. I have been advised by my medical support group that this place has been taken off the safe places to eat......

Review №8

Great taste fast service ribs were smaller than use to be but tasye great

Review №9

The salad with brisket and wine and cheese dressing is so delicious. The only problem, which is hopefully temporary, is they dont social distance or wear masks in the front or in the food prep area.

Review №10

Clean, Friendly, Great Food! They are taking many extra precautions to avoid the spread of COVID-19. If you like MD's sweet tea u will LOVE Dexter BBQs tea. Its just as sweet but fresh. Plus free ice cream!!

Review №11

This place has the absolute best, and I mean best pork steaks ever!

Review №17

The brisket and bbq ribs are the bomb

Review №18

I ordered a smoked turkey sandwich, nothing smoked about it at all, not expecting to get deli lunch meat. I could have gone to any grocery store and bought deli turkey. Totally dissatisfied. No need to return.

Review №19

Delicious as always. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Review №20

Delious pulled, tender pulled pork on toast with slaw. Excellent

Review №21

Love the food and great customer service

Review №22

Sauce isn't good at all .ribs were kinda dry .

Review №23

Ate there today pulled pork was nasty. Gobs of fat or lard. They will have to get better or a closed sign will go up. Quality is down food price up. We won't be going back.

Review №24

I bought a “cold” slab of yesterday's ribs to be warmed later at home. Suggestion to the company for proper packaging:1. Lightly moisten the slab (vinegar, water, butter, sauce, or whatever your taste)2. Wrap the slab in plastic wrap (important)3. Wrap again in tin foil.4. Warm in the oven AS WRAPPED.Step 2 will help keep the ribs moist.Don't let the ribs dry out before packaging.“Love you guys”Just trying to offer some good advice to my favorite BBQ place

Review №25

Their brisket is the bomb hands down , the meat is super tender and juicy it melts in your mouth. I also like their ribs , this will ALWAYS be my FAVORITE BBQ joint in Cape Girardeau

Review №26

First time eating here. I had the half chicken plate with seasoned fries. It was DELICIOUS!!! Will most definitely be back!

Review №27

Always great bbq.

Review №28

Absolutely, hands down, the best barbeque. I've tried Sugar Fire and Smolehouse 61 and Webb's. They don't even compare.

Review №29

Good flavor, good pull on the meet away from the bone, just wasn't a fan of the limited number of sauces

Review №30

Accidentally ordered a to go order from the wrong location. Cape was able to help me out and get food ready for 11 people in less than 5 minutes. Big thank you again for saving me this morning! Food was delicious!

Review №31

Food is great and prices are the best in town, when it comes to BBQ

Review №32

Great food and great service.

Review №33

I loved their BBQ. I wish they were in Tennessee. I especially like the way you ordered and seated yourself. They got our food to us very fast and I tried all of their sauces. I will be glad when they get their online store open.

Review №34

Pork steak good, sides right out of a can (green beans) with no seasoning whatsoever or the freezer (corn they "fried" to make it seem less frozen). Vegetable oil spread instead of butter. Sometimes the details make a meal. It would take very little effort to make memorable sides.

Review №35

Awesome ribs and great service!

Review №36

Pretty good plate of food. Clean and fast. Prices not bad.

Review №37

The BBQ was dry and too heavy with smoke. Not everyone needs to BBQ or smoke meat. It's an art and so many can't do it. Want good BBQ... Visit Memphis...

Review №38

Excellent bar b q. Nice portions.

Review №39

Placed a To Go order. Service was quick. Pulled pork was tender and delicious. Love Dexter's!

Review №40

Review №41

Review №42

Excellent food, staff was very friendly.

Review №43

The turkey melts are pretty great!

Review №44

The food was great, The porksteak was no itty bitty thing it was thick and delious. It's not a typical restarant you pay 1st and seat yourself and get your own drinks.. But the staff was friendly and our ladies group enjoyed it. We will go back..

Review №45

Took my son for his Birthday, food was good but the service was not over an hr before they closed and that's all the staff cared about.

Review №46

Friendly and helpful staff...the ribs and pulled pork were good. I would definitely recommend this place.

Review №47

1st time to eat here. Both ordered ribs and Cajun fries as a side. All OK, but very salty. Good sized portions. My husband didn't care for any of the BBQ sauces - I didn't use.

Review №51

Good ole SE Missouri bbq. Service great and restaurant always clean. Can't go wrong with Dexter BBQ.

Review №52

The barbeque was okay but nothing really great. The dining room was clean but pretty empty for 7:00 on a Wednesday night. The free ice cream was self-service soft serve and the machine was so loud you could hear it everywhere in the dining room. I wanted to try the ribs but they had run out for the day already. Just overall I was not really impressed and probably won't go back

Review №53

Wonderful place to eat. Good prices. Clean and friendly.Yummy. Love the free ice cream!

Ribs were good, not fatty but rub made them pretty salty. Brisquit was very good. Came with sauce on the side. Slaw was very good but neither of us liked the potato salad. Way too much mustard and mayo. Service was found fast.

Review №63

Review №64

Really great bbq. Friendly service. Nice atmosphere.

Review №65

Quick service, good bbq

Review №66

I typically do NOT like BBQ. I just never liked sauce dripping all over the meat so when my boss got me a BBQ sandwich from here I was not very excited, but I couldn't be ungrateful. I ate that first one and thoughts, "That's not to bad." Then I tried another and was hooked. They use a spicy mustard sauce that is not running out all over your fingers. I love these BBQ sandwiches and their ice cream is outstanding too. Ask for a "pig in a basket" and they will thrown in the fries!

Review №67

Food was good but seats need to be repaired. Tore a hole in a pr of my dress slacks.

Review №68

Best catfish in Southeast Missouri

Review №74

It's good, and filling, the best thing here in my opinion is there twice-baked potato!

Review №75

Ribs are top notch! Cheese mash potatoes too. Pulled pork sandwich is amazing. BBQ sauces are a must

Review №76

The sampler plate with brisket is enough to feed two, unless you have a huge appetite. Staff is always friendly!! Best local BBQ I have had.

Review №77

Service is nominal, but the food is great! Best pork steak I've ever eaten!!!

Review №78

Review №79

Amazing ribs, amazing sauces. Highly recommend

Review №80

OMG! All i can say is Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! I've never been disappointed. I always get rib and pull pork dinner.

Review №81

If you needed extra barbecue you got to try the barbecue sandwich with coleslaw on it it is the bomb

Review №82

Awesome food and a lot of it!!!! Rarely can I not clear my plate but I couldn't this time!!!

Review №83

Reserved their banquet room for a group of high school kids on the road.The buffet was more than enough and was tasty, ice cream was a nice treat, and the room was a nice space.Several sauces to choose from, like St. Louis style places, and they appear to do a big carry-out business as well as the eat-in restaurant - lots of people picking up food.

Review №84
