Great place

Great place to eat. Got there at 11:30 for lunch with no wait. When we left at 12:30 the place was packed. Great bar-bee-que and service. Pulled pork is the best.

Busy Saturday night. Full parking lot. Had to wait a bit for a table. BBQ was burnt and so was the Texas Toast. Service felt rushed. Would not go back.

I know we will not make a special trip there again. The food smelled great and actually tasted good but the BBQ was so wet that the buns were soggy from the BBQ

I'm not from Charlotte, so I asked everyone where the best Charlotte BBQ is. Almost everyone said Mac's Speed Shop. And I must disagree with them. I haven't had any other Charlotte BBQ yet, but I find it hard to believe that Mac's is the best. I ordered the brisket, and maybe its just not what I'm used to, but... More

Seated immediately at the south Blvd location but it was the last table. Attentive server and quick appetizer. The fried pickles had just cooled off enough to eat and here comes the entrée.

I average going there once every other week. The food is consistently great, and the service is always fast and friendly. The portions are so huge that I have to order bbq from the child's menu just so I can finish it. And, the bbq baked beans are the best. The beer selection is huge, but I usually get wine... More

Super great casual place to eat and drink! There's great bar food and lots of drinks specials. I always bring friends visiting from out of town and they love it!
