MARION -- This week's installment of Monday Bites takes us to downtown Marion for a visit at Bennies Italian Foods.

Owner John Hill says the eatery was started by an Italian immigrant named Bennie nearly 90 years ago.

Bennies is known for its hand made tamales and garlic salad but has an extensive menu to satisfy the pickiest of eaters.
