Noisy, Fun, Terrific Food

We've been to Mac's several times - lunch and supper, inside and outside. This last time was at dinner and there were 8 of us. We found the portions to be a good size; we did not go away hungry. The BBQ is not Lexington style; it is good nonetheless. I liked their collards, Brunswick stew... read more

The food at Mac's used to be so much better. It has really gone downhill. They have lowered their portion sizes and the quality of their food. The mac n cheese was once great, now is very bland. There are numerous better BBQ places in Charlotte.

I've had better BBQ at every other BBQ place in Charlotte that I've tried except one! Nothing was worth remembering, outside of the atmosphere being loud and my waitress not giving me the proper change!

Visiting Charlotte on business. If you ask anyone in Charlotte where to go for the best BBQ, everyone consistently says Macs Speed Shop. Ordered a platter and was not disappointed. Service was great. Had great meal, great service and fantastic time.

I have been to Macs on a couple of occasions and tried the BBQ. It is fairly good--even better with the MACs BBQ sauce. That sauce makes the dish!! The best item on their menu is the Smoked Chicken Quesadilla! I had it once because I was craving Mexican a bit but my friends wanted BBQ--and it was awesome! Get... More

We have had Macs catered at a friends wedding and have eaten in several times. Great food and friendly service. If you are in Charlottes you should try Macs!

went to watch 2 football games on the same night. Stayed about 6 hours and they were great about keeping drinks full and bringing food and appetizers out slowly. Will go back if ever in Charlotte again. The deep fried pickles were a little spicy but still a new and interesting taste. BBQ was just right. I liked the pulled... More

This place was jampacked on a cold Saturday night with about a 15 minute wait. The staff handled the crowds well getting everybody in and seated. My spinach salad with smoked chicken was up there with the best anywhere… My friend had the pork plate which she said was really good.

Great atmosphere and the food was perfect. I've tried a lot of the bbq spots and this is the best. I ordered the St. Louis ribs, pulled pork and brisket. All of it was amazing. Recommended for sure

Sooooo good! I have been here multiple times and I always get the wings. They are smoked and delicious. The Mac n cheese is delicious and so are the fries. There is a bar here but I wouldn't say it's inappropriate for children. You can find anything from date nights, guys watching sports, family dinner, etc. I def recommend it.
