Delicious Food

Wonderful BBQ and so much more. We have not only eaten there several times, we have used their catering services for two family reunions.

Yup if your looking for decent Carolina style BBQ this is a good place to stop. We got the full rack with beans and slaw and hush puppies. All were done well. Smoked and served with the sweet molasses sauce on the side ( vinegar and hot sauce in the caddy) the ribs were good. Needs updated tho. Place reminded... More

This is a family restaurant that just happens to serve the best BBQ I've ever had in NC!! Katherine was our waitress but it seemed like a team effort because several other waitresses stopped by to check on us, too. The food was outstanding as well as the service. Whatever drink you order, they'll bring a small pitcher of it... More

We stayed in Marion for a couple of nights and decided to have BBQ for dinner. It was so good! The smoked pork was flavorful perfection! We enjoyed our meal so much that we returned on the second night of our stay in Marion. Great service, local establishment. If you love barbecue, give this place a try!

We stopped here on the way up the mountain. There were many choices on the menu and I wanted something light so ordered the smoked grilled turkey breast, with sauteed spinach and sliced tomato. This was deli turkey breast sliced very thin and grilled. Nice to have the fresh spinach option, but the turkey and spinach were not flavorful. The... More

Only one visit here. I got the dry rub ribs and they were OK, seemed a little dry. The sauce they serve is great and liked that it was served on the side. Companion got a chicken strawberry salad that was very good

We stopped here because the parking lot was packed at 11:40 AM on a Tuesday. It is an authentic roadside restaurant with a menu focused on smoked pork, turkey and other meats. Having lived in the south for decades, we can attest to the authenticity of the ribs and pulled pork that we had for lunch. It was tasty and... More

We needed to head thru Marion on our way to Burnsville. It was the perfect spot for lunch as it is right off the highway at Rt 221and Rt 70. The food is good although everything tastes very sweet, even the fries had cinnamon sugar on them (?). I ordered from the Lighter fare side of menu which was perfect... More

We recently stopped here for lunch while traveling. I had fried fish and fried popcorn shrimp, coleslaw and hushpuppies. The portions are huge. My plate had enough food for two people. I thought the food was very good and and the prices were very good. Would definitely go back when I am back in the area
