DEXTER BAR-B-QUE, SIKESTON, MISSOURI
We knew about Lambert's but not about Dexter's. Then,they have that word that always gets me to salivating, "BARBECUE!!!'
It's about a ten minute drive west from Lambert's on Malone Street and a short jog north on Main Street. It always seems like a real long drive from Lambert's to get downtown.
Dexter's is a local favorite specializing in dry-rub pork ribs. "Aye, there's the rub."
The Chicago Tribune's Cheap Eater stopped by there a short time ago and declared their pulled pork among the best he's ever had. Joyce also recommends the Dexter Bar-B-Que sandwich on Texas toast with slaw and baked beans.
There's not much atmosphere in the place (not like Lambert's which oozes it), but it's modern, clean and welcoming.
124 N. Main Street, Sikeston, Mo.
Looks Like We Have Another Place to Check Out Next Time. But How Can You Give Up Lambert's? We May Have to Stay Two Days. One for Lambert's and One for Dexter's.
