Customer Reviews

We visited Countryside BBQ on a Saturday afternoon around 2:30. I was impressed by the number of people there at a non-peak time. The waitress was very nice and helpful, the restaurant was very clean, and the food came quickly. The food itself was very good - I had BBQ and chicken fingers, collard greens, and a sweet potato that was perfectly cooked and needed no extra sweetness, though they provide cinnamon sugar. The BBQ was good and made better by the sauce. The chicken was decent, not the best but certainly enjoyed. My daughter had popcorn shrimp and green beans, which she loved. Husband had a full rack of ribs, sweet potato, and okra. The ribs were very good- needed no sauce. I recommend Countryside to anyone going through Marion. We aren’t that way very often, but I will remember and try to visit again the next time we are out that way.

We love Country Side BBQ! WE eat here fairly often weather we dine in it pick it up and go eat at home. It is absolutely delicious and it's real country cooking. Each day of the week has a special to. Wed is pot roast with several sides and Sat is country steak and gravy with creamed potatoes corn, green beans and slaw an rolls. Those are our favorites. But we've tried almost everything on the menu and you can't go wrong with anything you pick. They have several salads and sandwiches all the way to steak dinners. It is a very cost country casual atmosphere and the people are very friendly. We will always come back

Excellent barbecue, great sides. Highly recommend the pulled pork with the house barbecue sauce. Great chopped slaw too. If you're visiting Marion or just passing through, stop in at the Countryside.

Countryside was recommended by local hotel staff, and it hit the spot after a weary day of travel. My daughter had all her favorites - grilled cheese, fries, and mac and cheese and all hit the spot. I took a bit of a risk going with the rib-eye but was not disappointed with a well portion hearty meal with a fresh salad and baked potato. Nothing fancy, but great comfort food that hit the spot.
