I have eaten many good meals at Countryside. They not only have tasty pulled pork barbecue, they also have delicious, tender smoked chicken, good fried shrimp, and excellent chicken tenders. They also have good side dishes as well, including slaw, home fries, corn, green beans and baked sweet potatoes. Their hush puppies are nice and crispy too. The prices are... More

We were enroute to a bluegrass festival so we weren't looking for anything fancy..... but we did want good food! We judged by trip advisor's recommendation..... (and all the cars in the parking lot!!) and went with this place! Great choice! Really good food, and QUICK!, and not pricey!

Friends of ours just completed their cabin on the outskirts of Marion and we spent the week-end with them and visited Coutryside BBQ for lunch on Saturday. I had the Fried Shrimp with great green beans, macaroni salad, and hush puppies. All of it was delicious. Others had the BBQ pulled pork and sweet potato fries. All food was very... More

Went to the Countryside BBQ for lunch last Sunday on a trip home from Asheville, NC. We stopped at the spur of the moment for a quick lunch and were greeted by friendly wait staff and the promise that we could have the lunch buffet for $9 or could order off the extensive menu. Since we were hungry and wanted... More

We went there recently with friends while visiting in North Carolina and we had a great meal. The portions were generous and the BBQ was prepared well. We liked the friendly service and the size of the crowd showed us that this place is very popular with locals. For dessert we had their blueberry cobbler a la mode and it... More

We were meeting family in Marion, but none of us were familiar with the area so we just drove until we saw this place. We decided to try it out, and we weren't disappointed. A sign told us to seat ourselves, but it was less than a minute before our smiling waitress greeted us at our table. She provided fantastic... More

This restaurant had lines out the door almost every night we were on vacation in Marion, but I just don't get it. We tried it one night but it was below average... I'm being generous with my three star rating. I will say that they are the fastest place to ever serve me my food in 31 years of dining... More
