This place is run by Mike Mills who has won the Memphis BBQ several times and was voted best BBQ by the Food channel previously ( 06 - 07?). The smoked brisket, chicken, or ribs are outstanding, the mama fays potato salad is incredible. This place would be a excellent stop over for people traveling north or south on Interstate... More

My wife and I both got two meat platters so we could sample as many types while we were there. Each meat was very good and if we lived in the area, I can easily see making it a regular dining stop. Due to the competitive nature of BBQ though, I always find myself comparing each new thing to the... More

We hit Marion, IL about lunchtime. Boy, am I glad. I wish we could go to Marion a lot more often. I ordered the beef brisket sandwich and my husband ordered the famous pork sandwich - with the intentions of sharing. The beef was so tender and delicious. It made sharing difficult even with someone you love. The pork was... More

My husband and I ate here last night for supper (it was our 8th wedding anniversary). I had the bbq chicken and he chose the ribs. The only good thing about either of our meals were our sides. Everything else wasn't very good. My chicken was flavorless & his ribs were dry and tough. I would however recommend their side... More

Been there a few times. They were ok. Everyone talks about them being the best BBQ place around but I like my BBQ tossed in sauce or real flavorful if not, and their's is without sauce and sometimes dry. Sides are good but the main entree items just aren't top notch.

He loved, loved, loved, the barbeque sandwich!! I got something else since I prefer my sauce cooked into the meat rather than slathered on at the table, and my food was ok..not great, but ok. When in a BBQ place, order the BBQ.

Not much on barbque restaurants other that true Texas bbq. A lady at our hotel recommended 17th Street and she was on target. Food was outstanding as was the service. Young lady server recommended we try the sampler and share it, which worked out great. Five varieties of meat and huge servings. She provided outstanding service and the food was... More

Ribs vary greatly by area of the country you are in, I have tried a lot of ribs and I have to say I loved these! Who would guess that you could get this quality of ribs in Marion, Illinois. My grandson and I split a rack of the baby back ribs with two sides for $23. The mac and... More

We are here due to it being close to the hotel we stayed at. The food had a great flavor. The nachos were my favorite along with the wings. Kinda high in price but you do get a lot of food. If ever in this area will definitely stop again.
