While looking for a local joint for dinner, i came across Triple E BBQ East in Marion. I ordered the Grilled Chicken (with mozzarella cheese and mushrooms) with baked beans and fries as sides.... The chicken and fries were delicious, but the beans were pretty average. The price was right....for a very generous helping, it’s not much more expensive than your typical fast food meal, but much better.

The ambience of the place was kinda like a basement rec room from back in the day. Definitely a locals and hunter’s joint.

The only complaints i have are: the service was kinda slow considering the crowd was very sparse, limited BBQ meat options (only pork and 1 chicken item, and since i don’t eat pork, i opted for the grilled chicken) and the water had a swampy taste—should filter their water!

Overal, it was a good dining experience and i would recommend it.

Great ribs and catfish. Good hushpuppies, corn fritters, slaw. I love ribs and these are tops. Catfish done right. Pleasantly surprised to find this jewel up north!

If you're looking for whole fiddler catfish, this is the place to go. The catfish was fried to perfection. Not dry or too much breading like you find in some places. Nope, this was absolutely delicious. The staff there was exceptionally friendly, courteous and professional. We were running a little close to closing time because of not being familiar with the area. Despite that, the ladies welcomed us in, made us feel at home and took great care of us. If you're as fond of outstanding whole catfish as we are, then you owe it to yourself to try Triple E. I guarantee you won't be disappointed. Snag a couple and enjoy them.

Customer and I had a quick lunch here and both of us had the fish specials. Fantastic, more than we could eat for certain. Service was good, food was great, price was ok. Can't go wrong here! Highly recommended!

Very good place to eat. Don't expect nice fancy surroundings, just a simple cafe with good food. Breakfast is very good and prices are fairly reasonable. Another hometown favorite.
