Marty’s BBQ has a history over 40 years in the making and a rich memory that will forever live on. Named after the late Marty Ellis, beloved brother, uncle, and friend to many. Marty’s BBQ is located in Wilson, North Carolina known for some of the finest BBQ and antique places in the state. Owner, Lawrence Ellis is the son of Bill Ellis (barbecue entrepreneur) who left his passion to his son. Following in his father’s footsteps, Lawrence along with his business partner have opened their own BBQ establishment. What started as an idea two years ago and a boarded-up convenience store has now turned into a bustling restaurant where you can smell the pork bbq cooking from miles away. Lawrence has perfected the art of cooking bbq and his experience in managing a restaurant is efficient. Cars line up every morning as soon as the doors open and don’t stop till the lights get turned out. Customers are met with the freshest bbq, the yummiest fried chicken in town, and the best mouth-watering fixins in all of Eastern North Carolina. Whether you are eating in or taking out you are treated like family. The friendly atmosphere is evident as soon as you walk in the door. The memory of Marty Ellis lives on and his outgoing presence is felt as he looks down on the smiling staff and the satisfied customers.
