Very good BBQ.

All outdoor seating. You walk up to a window to place your order. Orders are LARGE!!!! Nice to visit in moderate weather. We've enjoyed this place a couple times now.

Used the drive thru to get some pulled pork BBQ based on recommendations from local friends. It was really good! Paid 30$ for 3 pounds of it. You can eat it at this place in a little picknick house or get it to go with you. There's no restaurant like table serving. Definitely worth trying out if you haven't yet.

We get a pound or more and take it home. Buy their home made sauce too. The best Bar b q ever. When we go visit our children and grandchildren in Northern Indiana they always request us to bring bar b q. They all love it too and can't find real pit bar b q up there.

Nothing fancy, just tasty BBQ worth a long drive for, served hot and ready to eat there or take out! I'm a pulled-pork fan, but I hear the ribs are great, too. Enjoy!!!

On my list every time I visit Marion. They take pride in their BBQ and it shows in every bite! Great for picnics or family parties.

When we visit relatives in other states they always have one request, "could you bring us some of Jack's Bar-B-Q". Likewise when they visit us at home, it's expected to have Marion Pit Bar-B-Q at least once.
