The location: Dexter Beats Up Barry
Q. Where can I find it in real life?
A. This is the Long Beach Cafe, at 615 E. Ocean Blvd, in Long Beach, CA.
The alley where Dexter beats up Barry is on the north side of the restaurant, with the camera looking west.
That's just west of the corner of Ocean Blvd & Alamitos Avenue, where you'll find the gas station where Barry is busted by the cops in an earlier scene.
Also, it's about a third of a mile east of the tower that houses Jordan Chase's 24th floor offices.

Q. How the heck did you figure out where it was?
A. I knew they were filming in this part of Long Beach, so I drove down to take a look.
I found them using a crane to set up for the shoot in front of the Long Beach café.
isn't really visible in the scene itself, they changed the neon sign over
the front cafe's door, to read "Roadside Cafe". The
sign also included what appeared to be the silhouette of a road runner...
