I remember going to this place before it was Deke's and it was just the "Garage." The renovation of the location is brilliant and there's not a better place to be on a beautiful summer night than here, with the doors open and the grill, smoking. I felt like a regular here before I moved to the area and go there about once a week now that it's a neighborhood bar. Now to the business, the food is incredible. I have been here no less than 25 times since it's been open and between my friends and I, have not been disappointed with anything on the menu. By far my favorites combos are the 1/2 chicken platter and the pulled pork in any variety I can get it that day. The pulled pork is sweet and if you add a little bit of the "XXX" sauce, it gives it just enough heat to balance it perfectly. They have an ever evolving drink/beer selection with some great original mixed drinks in mason jars and if you're feeling frisky, opt for the Bro Bomb. Side note, my brother in law (who grew up in Texas) was in town and brought him here and said that the brisket is some of the best he's ever had and Texas knows their BBQ.

The first thing you see as you walk up to Deke's is the old home oil tanks converted into smokers which are still cooking from the night before. Seating is limited but it's worth the wait or eating at the bar. The BBQ chicken is amazing and the ribs are the best I have ever had. This place is a must try for anybody who likes BBQ!!!
