Barbecue was wonderful- best ribs, mac-n-cheese, and wings ever. We visited from Florida, where every restaurant has sweet tea and lemonade. They didn't have either, which was disappointing, but they said that in the summer time they do have both sweet tea and lemonade.

My friends and I went to this restaurant for dinner. The service was excellent - very attentive and friendly. One of my friends had the brisket and wing combo. I had the wing and 1/2 rack of ribs combo and my other friend had the ribs. Each combo. comes with french fries and cole slaw. Portions were good and the... More

Saw the good reviews so I figured we'd give it a try. I can't describe our food as tasty, or authentic southern, or barbecue for that matter, I'm pretty sure everything we are was cooked in a slow cooker and maybe warmed on a hot plate mixed with a bucket of BBQ sauce. There were two waitresses, serving maybe 10... More

This location of RD's Southern BBQ is no longer open as they have moved to another location in Mississauga (an old Wendy's that is much more spacious). The food is still the same and it is amazing! The Dean Bad Habit is one of the biggest sandwiches I've ever seen and the brisket is to die for. Cornbread is also... More

Ribs, brisket, pulled pork, home-style baked beans, cole slaw -- DELICIOUS! Corn bread, not so much, but who cares, cause everything else was delicious and the staff friendly and fun!

Never mind the other reviews as they do not eat out regularly to compare with other restaurants. The ( one and only) waitress was too absorbed in seating new customers instead of making the rounds to ask how the seated guest's dinner was or refilling drinks. She screwed up the order ..... Missed a few items because she thought she... More

We tried the restaurant on Kennedy but they were sold out of beef dishes. The owner told us of thier new location near Derry and Hurontario. We had to go since it smelled amazing. The new location is bigger (used to be a Wendy's). The server was awesome and made us feel very comfortable. We tried the ribs and brisket... More

Great food, good atmosphere. Jean always has some great stuff grilling. Try the Max & Henry special. :) Or if you can't handle that much food the Dean is a good choice!
