Great food... BUT ...DONT PARK IN THE BACK !!!

I can not say enough about the food and service...2nd to none, after we finished our meal around 9:00pm (an hour or so) we walked out back to our car and noticed a manager following us to our car. Hindsight i should have asked him if everything was ok but i did not. The next day, I had noticed... read more

Foods was good. Have to try the chili and nachos with chicken. Sweet tea had good flavor. Went with a group of 8 guys. We all had a good meal. Very loud music playing on background some what hard to hear. Waitresses were nice and hard at work, especially the one from the blueberry state!

Came here for lunch. Service as usual was on point, with a friendly staff. Great beer prices and fantastic tasting food. I have been here many times before, and will continue to dine here with friends and family. One of the best BBQ joints in the CLT area.

Even if you just show up for apps, you can not go wrong with the fried pickles and the pulled pork nachoes. Best fried pickles I have ever had. Don't expect fancy just good.

The Beef Brisket is indescribably good! They have a great beer selection. The sides are good as well. I am sure the other entrees are good, but I am hooked on the Beef Brisket.

Went with a few coworkers for s good meal. We split onion rings (nice and crunchy), deviled eggs (for our gluten free friend) and wings. The wings are baked and taste just as good- if not better- than some fried wings I've had. The classic definitely had a kick to it, and the honey BBQ were my favorite. I like... More

My husband and I ventured out on a Saturday and ended up at Mac's. This is almost an hour trip from our home and Mac's has been on my bucket list for years. I couldn't wait to devour some hometown bbq. The weather was beautiful so we sat on the patio. We arrived around 5 pm and the patio was... More

On our waitresses recommendation I tried out the Beef Rib...notice I said rib...singular...16 ounces of mouthwatering, perfectly cooked beef attached to a rib bone you could play cricket with. Slow roasted for 12 hours...melt in your mouth. Two sides included...I had chili all the way and collard greens...both were delicious. They even had a bottle of my favourite beer Delirious... More
