I recently dined in with a fishing buddy and we decided to try their grilled catfish for lunch. The serving portions were okay but the seasoning was on the light side and the fish was just slightly under-cooked. The food was warm and served fairly quickly. All in all, it was okay to eat but in the future I will... More

We were once again staying in Marion, IL for college move in at SIU in Carbondale. We've done this trip 5 or 6 times over the past year and as such, have tried many of the local restaurants. We were up for something different, and consulted the handy Trip Advisor app, which lead us to KB Barbeque. It's definitely off... More

We have been here numerous times and we appreciate the consistency of the food and service. Have tried several of their dinner specials which were all quite good. The smoked chicken is a favorite and the pork chops they serve are gigantic. The lunch special of a BBQ basket is also quite tasty. I love their drive through service in... More

Found this place on accident, a little out of the way but well worth it!!! Homemade desserts and slow cooked ribs and a perfect house BBQ sauce!!! Cheap for the amount of food you get and excellent service!!

KB is well off the beaten path, but worth every minute spent getting there. We travel to Marion about every six weeks to visit family, and make this a must stop location on the trip. We highly recommend the Friday and Saturday specials - Friday we like either the spare ribs or pork chop "Off the Pit", Saturday the baby... More
