About Us

Located in downtown Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, Maers BBQ off the Square opened their doors to the public on January 14th 2012. Focusing on traditional BBQ techniques, Maers features house smoked bbq dishes with a unique twist. All of the items on the menu are made fresh daily. Our scratch made soups and sauces reflect the seasonality of the ingredients used. Maers offers a full breakfast menu, speedy lunch, and a relaxing dinner atmosphere. We also offer customers the option to bring their own alcohol (BYOB),  access free wireless internet, a jukebox, and eating contests.

The word “Maers” is an acronym formed using letters from each of the owners names.  Mike, Anita, Eric, Rob, and the Sallemi family proudly founded the restaurant as a way to stay locally connected to the Wilkes Barre area and offer people an unmatched food experience. Maers’ food, all based on barbecuing techniques, is fused with Italian, Mexican, and Asian influences. “No one does bbq like Maers does bbq!”
