Fun spot for a casual meal. The pulled pork is great. Don't know if they still have it but there was live music on the outside deck the last time I was there. I ordered a large barbecue plate and had plenty to take home for lunch the next day. Good time.

This Barbecue spot really hits the mark! It has great variety of meat and sauces and terrific service. The night we were there they had live music on the patio and the volume was just right-not too loud inside, but a good vibe. We enjoyed the sewer potato fries and the coleslaw as well as our main courses. I had... More

This is a well advertised spot in Charlotte... They have a directed menu towards southern BBQ . The food is good... The service is good... But the check is quite pricey... 1 brisket taco $5.... small Brunswick stew 4....... The food was good ! Just a little pricy for the surroundings and the quantity.

If you are looking for a great place to grab a beer and some of the best smoked wings you'll ever have, this is your place. Mac's has a huge beer selection and plenty of seating indoor and out. Great spot for lunch or dinner. Casual.

I've been here several times with friends who seem to like it. To me, the food is just average and it's way over priced. The place reminds me of a typical tourist trap. If you want good BBQ at a reasonable price, try a little place called the rock store in nearby Stallings NC. There are also seveal other good... More

Mac's Speed Shop is a great place for food. It can get a little loud at times inside so business discussions will be tough. The wings are spectacular. Smoked, not fried. The sauces only make them better. You can go wrong with any of the sides you choose. The brisket, fish, and the BBQ are excellent. Great beer selection too.

The Vespa Veggie burger here is incredible! Great veggie surprise. Stellar beer selection, great staff, and awesome ambiance. It's goes for a safe biker bar feel, but very family friendly. With the veggie burger, the fixins are free, so I recommend guac, mushrooms, and onion rings to make a truly out of this world burger! Great spot to watch sports,... More
