I stopped to buy a pound of barbecue meat today. The girl told me it would fit in a pint container. For those who don't understand that problem, a pound is 16 ounces and a pint is 8 ounces. When I questioned her, she didn't seem to have an answer. When i told her I wanted it without sauce, she said it would be an extra dollar. What? I don't want something that you add so you charge me more? Yes, because now it wouldn't fit in the pint container, it would take a quart container. Since it should have taken a quart container from the beginning, I was really confused. Then it dawned on me that they were wetting the meat down with sauce so they could use less and still weigh a pound so they charge for the full pound of meat but you aren't getting that much. I won't buy from Dean's any more. My family has done business there for 30 years but today was the last time I stop there.

Some of us are lucky enough to have 'grown-up' with Dean's. The hot deal gives you a quick taste but take a pound (dry) with sauce on the side home to enjoy real barbecue for several meals.

All you yankees looking for the real south, take yourself down to Jonesboro and try this barbque. This is the real deal. Good pork, slow cooked and seaond to perfection. The chopped sandwich is what que is all about. The people are super friendly and , the dine-in is great. Like eating in my grandmother's kitchen

This is the place to get some good barbecue sandwiches. On my last visit a camera crew was there making a commercial for PBS about the top barbecue places in Georgia. Well, this is one of them! You'll enjoy this family owned restaurant, very personable and friendly atmosphere.
