This is a great location in Marion, right in the heart of downtown. Well, we discovered this was the 2nd or possibly the third owner of the establishment. We were somewhat surprised that basically everything inside looked about the same, from the great brick walls inside, to the heavy wooden tables to the motor like ceiling fans with the modern touch of the lights. However, living out of town, we have not been back there for almost two years, and some things have changed. First of all, they no longer have the upstairs available to parties, watching ball games, etc. (apparently being a dry county, previous owner(s) could not obtain a liquor license). Now the upstairs is used mainly for overflow of customers. At any rate, we opted to split the calzone since we were told how big it was. They had a special for the philly steak and cheese so that is what we ordered, along with two cokes. We had quite a long wait considering there were only four other customers when we sat down (when we left there were ten other customers plus two carryout pickups), What surprised us was the number of people going in and out of the kitchen: workers, apparently the owner, and a couple other "civilians". Also one of the servers, although extremely nice, informative and attentive, had a child there about ten, who followed her from table to table-at times hanging on her, etc. Back to the food: the calzone was a good size. The crust was done just right, although just a little difficult to cut even with a knife. Inside was the steak, cheese and bell pepper: but only the center had the melted cheese, the other two parts had no cheese; the meat was slightly tough and you had to search for the bell pepper. Needless to say, the lunch did not go on our high marks for the day. Now the calzone was not cheap, but somewhat moderately priced for what we got (have had much better for the same approximate price!). It indeed, has changed.

Dairy Queen

Reviewed By texaswillie - Dallas, Texas

The family was in Marion and noticed the outdoor sign indicated chicken strip baskets were on sale. We have always enjoyed the chicken strips at Dairy Queen and being on sale drew us in. We ordered the baskets and water with each order. We were met with a surprise. 9 1/2% tax because that is a "eat in" restaurant and 20 cents for each cup of water. So much for the chicken strip basket being on sale. They got back part of the original sale price.The strips were fine as was the toast and gravy and french fries. The strisps are smaller than those we have had at this location in the past.We will not be stopping again as I have no ointention of paying a fast food palce for a cup of tap water.

Had the brisket potato. Enough for two. Very tasty but a little too much cheese sauce. Brisket was very tender. Service was excellent and place was very clean. I'll stop in again

The Front Porch

Reviewed By Mark B - Kevil, Kentucky

Stopped by this restaurant on the way home,for a late lunch, early supper, and glad we did. The fried catfish was very good, as were the Hush puppies and very good fries. We had the fried dill pickles, which were about the best I've had anywhere. Not a big restaurant, it is open from 11 to about 9 p.m. on the weekends. We stopped in around 3:30 p.m. which was perfect - after lunch crowd and before the supper crowd. If you like catfish and southern cooking this is definitely worth a visit.

Marion Pit Bar-B-Q

Reviewed By texaswillie - Dallas, Texas

Several years ago this location had the best bar b q in Western Kentucky. We purchased bar b q three times recenelty and each time the meat contaiend hard non-eatable pieces of meat. Even after I requested that no outside hard pieces be out in our order I was disappointed when I opened the packege and once again found hard pieces of the outside of the meat. We have no made our last trip to that location until such time they go back to the way it used to be.

La Potosina

Reviewed By jimles7 - Princeton, Kentucky

My family and I love this Mexican restaurant. The guacamole,white cheese dip, green extra hot salsa are spot on. Nachos are extra good with helpings big enough for a hearty eater. Maria's favorite and La Potosina enchilada's are 2 of my favorites. Service is fast and food is brought out hot. This is a very good place, give it a try.

You cannot believe how many people were at the deli counter buying take out food. The counter person was working hard to fill all of the orders. Lots of prepared foods such as potato salad, slaw, etc plus served fried food items. Seems like a lot of Marion do not cook but instead get the food at this deli. We purchased some to take to a relative's house. The food was Ok but not fabulous. However this is one of the few places in Marion where you can get deli foods.

Cheap pizza buffet for lunch. Only about 5$ when taken with tap water. Pizza is quite good but they're really slow on restocking the buffet. Lettuce looked old and brown. Staff is a bit mediocre, could be more friendly. Hate that there are no windows and it's so dark inside. Place is also quite filthy. Sticky tables. No baby changing facilities. Okay for a cheap decent all you can eat pizza, ignore all around it.
