Reviews of Merle's Bar-B-Q
06/21/2014 - Chris
I don't know why I keep going to this place. The food is average at best. I think it is a convenience thing. I have probably purchased food here about a dozen times over the 13 years I have lived in Paulding county. I have mostly done take out on Saturday afternoons. We don't have a ton of money and therefore don't eat out often. Tonight we decided to eat out. We didn't feel like dealing with Saturday night crowds in Hiram so my wife and 3 small children stayed close to home and went to Merle's. We paid over $40 for 2 adults and 3 girls under the age of 12. My complaint isn't so much with the food as with the staff. They always seem completely annoyed to have to deal with you. No one smiles. No one says thanks for eating at Merle's. Everyone behind the counter seems to be a teenager who would much rather be somewhere else with a 25 year old in charge. This has happened EVERY time I have patronized this place and I always swear I am never going back. This was the final straw. I'm done. If the food was amazing maybe it would be worth being treated like dirt. If Sonny's was still around it would blow the doors off this place ....and Sonny's was nothing to write home about. Tonight the service was downright rude. Other reviewers can rave all they want about this place always being packed. I've never seen it packed. My pork plate was served room temp with way too much sauce already on it.The sauce is way too sweet and I wasn't given the opportunity to add it to my taste. If I had it to do over again tonight I would have gone to Subway's instead. I DO NOT recommend this place and it is mostly based on the ungrateful rude staff. I am all about supporting local businesses but this one can go away as far as I care. They don't deserve it.

I have been eating at Merles for years and it is one of my favorite places to eat. I love the Hickory salad the BBQ and the burgers are all great.
Don't forget to try their pepper poppers. They melt in your mouth and make you wanna slap your mamma they are so good. LOL!
The staff is friendly and quick. everyone needs to visit Merle's at least once.
