Good BBQ, friendly staff, plentiful portions, and didn't break the bank. If the parking lot is full, don't worry, plenty of room inside. Appears to be a local favorite. Stop on by!

Very good meat and 3 restaurant. Bar B Q and chicken dishes are very good. We had chicken strips which were very good and Bar B Q plates that were equally good. Would highly recommend.

Grew up in Marion and my mom still lives there! We go at least once to eat there while I'm there and never disappointed! Have had their catering many times too so highly recommended! Owner is a champ!

We live in the area so we eat here fairly often. You know what you get will be delicious. The BBQ is the specialty and the pulled pork is wonderful. Hush Puppies are heaven. Oh my! I highly recommend this restaurant.
