We were in Sikeston on a Saturday night and had originally intended to eat dinner at Lambert's, a Cracker Barrel-style restaurant that advertises extensively. There were lots of patrons waiting outside when we pulled up there and my wife was told that it would be...More

One of the best bbqs I’ve ever had. Love the flavor of the ribs and sandwiches. I usually never try other new places because I’m afraid they won’t be as good :)

It was a coin toss between this and Lambert's and I lost. The pork is shredded/ground, which usually means they aren't proud of it, and although four sauces are on the table, they put sauce on in the kitchen, cook's choice. Dexter's slogan is "Cookin'...More
