Made a pit stop to this restaurant because it was rated well. Ended up being a great decision! The pulled pork was SO good- probably the best I've ever had. Staff was friendly and it was a very relaxed environmeny.

Most BBQ in NC is pork. This is as close to Texas beef brisket you will get in North Carolina. Nice selection of beer. Great Banana Pudding!

Was in Charlotte for the NASCAR race with my wife and wanted authentic North Carolina BBQ, the hotel recommended Mac's as it was close. Great decor, AWESOME food, just an all around fun place to go for dinner.
