Stopped in for lunch while driving from Tampa to Chicago. Both husband and I got the lunch combo special. Ribs were excellent but brisket was dry and pulled pork just a mound of bland meat. Service was good and surroundings clean and comfortable.

I Had lunch here while in town for work. The Barbecue is very good. I Had both the brisket and pulled pork. Can't go wrong with either.

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel staff nearby and we were not disappointed. It is a relatively fine dining establishment but has quick eatery tones if so desired. Even though it was a Saturday evening, we were seated quickly. Our waitress took our drink order promptly and waited patiently to take our food order as the selection was just to good. A number of dishes all look appetizing which took time to decide. As the name implies, it specializes in barbecue dishes and we both love barbecue. Once we did, our order was taken and the food was delivered in a timely manner. It was hot, tasty and a good quantity. Make sure you have a good appetite as it is filling. The staff were friendly and accommodating and we would go back if we are ever in the area again.

Best brisket I have had since I moved from OKC. It had a fine dining feel with a sports bar twist. The staff was very friendly and fast. Will be back next time I am in Marion.

Visited here again in Jan 2018. Hot link sandwich was great and in house amber ale was great. Staff was awesome and friendly. Prices are very fair. Can’t wait to come back here next time I’m in town.

Had the brisket and ribs combo. Generous portions. Very tasty. The red barbeque sauce is vinegar based, and I prefer a sweeter sauce, like Famous Daves, but it still was good. Meat was tender and smoked well. We will return the next time we are in the area.
