Not really an eat-in place. Most folks get their bbq to go or simply eat in the parking lot in their vehicles...(Trucks). Bbq meat is the best I've ever had, hands down! The sandwich is served on white bread, with or without slaw(Old school). I usually buy the meat in bulk and make my own sandwiches.

I have lived in Marianna for 27 years. People come from all over to get this great bbq! I only have to drive three blocks...life is good!

As the review says, if you don't get there before noon, you probably will miss out. When it's gone...it's gone!

Jones Bbq makes their money catering and cooking to order. If you want a ham, butt, or turkey cooked for a holiday or special occasion you will probably have to get on a waiting list!

But if you are in the area, in the morning, then a quick stop by Jones Bbq is more than worth the time!

You can get your pork barbecue sandwich with or without cole slaw.  'With' does add texture to the sandwich.

Jones Bar-B-Q Diner is thought to be one of the oldest African-American owned businesses in the US.  Mr. Harold lives above the landmark restaurant.
