We decided it would be a long time until we were able to eat again, by the time we got in from our concert, so we popped into the local DQ (which I normally enjoy visiting any DQ).
It was very hot inside, the employees were sweating, whether they were behind the counter or not, and flies were EVERYWHERE! There was mustard, ketchup and trash all over the floors.
All we ordered was a hamburger for my husband, and I opted for a kids meal (chicken strip) as I wasn't very hungry. It took 30 minutes, and we ended up racing to the car to eat it on the way,. so we wouldn't be late for our concert we'd traveled 5 hours to see.
The people were very friendly.

The Chicken Place

Reviewed By Elizabeth O - Jefferson, Texas

This place was amazing. We were going to go to Sisters, but it was closed, so we back-tracked to the only restaurant we remembered passing. Every item on the plate was a delight! The chicken was perfectly cooked, the coleslaw was wonderfully seasoned, the potato salad was dilly and the roll was soft and fresh. The staff was attentive and friendly. This is a great place to eat.!

Whup's Boomerang Barbecue

Reviewed By Mark K - Cypress, Texas

Rainy day, 5 cars in line for the drive through line, shoot to the walk up window, and some of the nicest people ever. Brisket (sliced) was so good, should have bought extra for the trip. Have to stop here again.

The Wagon Rib and Wing Drive-Thru

Reviewed By TrueTexasTraveler - Amarillo, Texas

This little nondescript drive-thru just to the east of Highway 6 off the exit in Marlin is simply amazing. Don't be deterred by it's run down "looks like it's closed" appearance. Just drive on through, order some fried ribs and fried chicken wings, and then enjoy your life for the next few minutes while you eat them.

In Marlin there are not alot of food choices so locals have gotten complacent and don't seem to expect alot.... Well I will never get that way. I am a chef and a hedonist that believes food should always be a sinful adventure.

Cactus is ok for takeout, but it is kinda bland and pricey for this small town. The waitstaff rarely speaks english and most of the time it takes 40-1 hour to get your food. If you mention it to Leo the owner he gets hateful with you about it.

Burger and fries, Dr. Pepper or Coke, and good service. This is an old-fashioned drive-in diner with a basic menu and basic food. I wouldn't eat there daily, but for a quick lunch occasionallly, it's fine.

Butcher shop with Deli, BBQ, sausage and cut to order meat

Reviewed By 13bedbugz - Plano, Texas

when you walk in it does not seem like much, but look at the prices! They have meat specials that are great! Plus the meat is fresh, parking is good and the owner is nice. Freezer specials really help on a tight budget.

McDonald's

Reviewed By 13bedbugz - Plano, Texas

Just how can you review a McDonalds? it is always the same prefab taste, This one is no different. drive thru grab cheap food that taste like cardboard and puts a roll around your tummy. BUT their bags of Ice are a buck that is at least one star. At least it is always clean. But it teaches kids to eat poorly..... which makes for overweight, tired kiddos.
