Bruce always makes everything from scratch. He has the best cheese cakes you will ever eat. His wife Barbara always greets you with a smile and a hug.

We visited Bruce's today and the food truly lived up to its name. I had the chicken salad sandwich, my husband had a burger and the kids had quesadillas and hotdogs. The homemade sides (as Bruce said," we make everything except the potato chips and Doritos") and cheesecake were outstanding. We were there right at the lunch rush but the... More

Lunch. Ordered the Special. Black and Bleu Burger. Hand pattied. Cooked medium, seasoned well. Had slaw as a side. Very good. Sat at the bar. Good sevice. A little pricey, but I didn't eat the included dessert. Out the door tax and tip - $13.

Love to have lunch or take out from Bruce's Fabulous Foods. I'm a vegetarian and Bruce and his wife, Barbara, always have something for everyone. Their home made hummus is delicious and their cheesecake, of which there are many varieties, is famous all over! My very favorite offerings are the out-of-this-world tomato pie and pimento cheese on pita points. I... More

So great. The food is always good. New things on the menu all of the time. The personalities of the hosts are wonderful. They have so much passion in what they do. You can tell it in their food and their smile.

I've been to Bruce's Fabulous Foods 4 times now. I live 2+ hours away and anytime I am heading past Marion on I-40 my car just heads to Bruce's! Awesome food - anything you choose is GREAT! Awesome service! Personal touches! Hard to talk about any one item because all are GREAT! (Well, my husband doesn't care for the 'Yankee'... More

When a search for restaurants in Marion yielded Bruce's Fabulous Foods, my sister scoffed: "If they have to tell you it's fabulous, then it isn't." We drove into Marion without a lunch destination in mind. We walked up and down Main Street reading the menus of the restaurants. Most of the sandwich shops seemed empty despite it being shortly after... More

I happened to find Bruce's Fabulous Foods by accident, as I was making my way back to Asheville after driving the Blue Ridge Parkway. What a gem! It is the quintessential small town diner where everyone gathers for lunch. The owner is friendly and his positive attitude is shared by all of the staff- they like being exactly where they... More

This guy has the best lunch in all of Marion. They serve sandwiches and awesome sides. They also have homemade cheesecake with some very special variations of cheesecake. I highly recommend eating here for lunch. They are only open for lunch M-F. they do catering on the weekend and at nights. Also the broccoli salad is a great side.
