The food was wonderful. The amount huge. The owner was very friendly. It was very crowded when we got there, but when we were seated things went quickly. We will definetly return next year. Later we saw friends from Marion and it was their favorite place to eat.

The staff was so friendly and the food was being prepared as ordered. If you like sweet tea, it was the best. Also a buffet bar set up in case you want to try... More

Stopped in after checking trip advisor. This place is great. The burritos are huge. The food is incredibly fresh. There is no doubt we are coming back.

The jalapeño fresh grill is the best place to go in Marion for Hispanic food! My husband and I love to go and split a meal. The food is always fresh and flavorful. The service is very friendly and fast. We would recommend this restaurant to all those who love an authentic taste!

Not very good, the service is okay, the food is okay, and the value is okay. I've given this place several chances and i'm just not impressed.

We found this place on TripAdvisor on our way home from Asheville, and boy are we glad we did. The ingredients were very fresh and the portions large. I loved the salsa bar.
