Had a great meal before the Miners game. We had 7 in our group and were seated quickly. Consistently good service and food. We'll go back!

Right off interstate 57 make it a convenient stop. Good BBQ, sides and a very tasty home brew on tap. The pulled pork is very smoky (i like) and moist - the ribs are ok - smoked a long time so a more "hammy" taste to them with no crust or chew to them. The collard greens are some of... More

After reading some of the reviews and on-line comments, we decided to try this BBQ on a layover between Chicago and Alabama. My wife had the ribs and thought they were good- not great, but OK. Of course, she's used to eating at Dreamland in our home town of Tuscaloosa, AL. I had the BBQ sandwich. The meat was tender... More

I'm not a huge fan of BBQ but this place was great. We had a large party (16) who they took care of with no problem. Try the BBQ nachos and fried pickels, you won't be sorry. Service is fast and friendly. The BBQ lovers in our group said it was some of the best they have ever had.

Had a party of 15 and got seated right away on a Saturday night around 7pm. I ate the 17th Street potato with the pulled pork on it and it tasted good. Tried the original barbecue sauce on the table but I can say I'm not a huge fan of it. My daughter had the horseshoe and enjoyed it. Another... More

Close to hotel and offered a good selection of bbq; however, we were disappointed with the dryness of the brisket. Pork was pretty good, ribs were also dry, and the chicken was very good, as were the baked beans. We do like a variety of bbq sauces, which were not offered. It was a fun evening with adequate food, but... More

Don't waste your time at this restaurant. Drive all the way to the original restaurant (17th Street Bar & Grill) in Murphysboro for the real deal. There you will actually smell the barbecue before you enter. This Marion location has it wrong, wrong, wrong. My ribs and brisket were dry, dry, dry! My baked beans were good and that saved... More

We buy Magic Dust in bulk and love using it on French fries and hamburgers at home. But we enjoy dining in this restaurant too. The Reuben is good as are the fries and bread pudding. But their potato salad is truly heavenly! Don't miss it!

Too much food but worth the gluttony! OMG this is the best barbque we ever had. The chicken ad the pork are succulent. The potato salad is creamy and well seasoned with a touch of sour cream. The baked beans had every bean known to man, and done to perfection with an incredibly full flavor, sweet and savory! Wonderfully friendly... More

This restaurant was right next to our hotel, but we actually discovered it by accident while looking for a sports bar type of thing. BTW, it is not a sports bar, but it does have a great atmosphere and ambiance. We ordered the ribs and pork steak, and the potato skins as an appetizer. All of it was absolutely amazing.... More
