Biker bbq worth the visit

My 19 year old son and I have started going to different restaurants in the Charlotte area, and this time he selected Mac's Speed Shop for bbq. I was hesitant because my general experience has been that if the bbq is not in the middle of the "country", and served on picnic tables with white bread... read more

I have the pulled turkey platter every time I visit Macs the food is incredible. The staff is usually very attentive however if you are visiting on a weekend be prepared to have a wait on seating and service; however it is worth it!

We love Mac's. The BBQ is delicious with lots of options. Healthy chicken or decadent ribs. They even have great sausages and fish tacos as apps. The sides are terrific. My husband is a traditionalist and like the beans. I like the Mac n Cheese and the potato salad. The beer selection is FANTASTIC. My husband like the special where... More

I went to the two "best" bbq places in Charlotte in consecutive days. Macs the first day and Midwood smokehouse the second day. I got the combo platters at both locations and have to say that I enjoyed both, but I liked Macs brisket better. The pulled pork was a little dry and Midwoods was better. The ribs were delicious...

I love the food here. It's simple, but very flavorful! Great place to be with friends, but large parties struggle to find tables. The beer selection is good and I've never had poor service. You have to try the Mac and cheese!

This place is always crowded, loud and bustling. Not a great place for business lunch, but a fun stop for good BBQ and friendly staff.

I stopped in because I noticed it was packed both times I passed by. Excellent assortment of beer by bottle or draft. Cute female bartenders & waitresses. I had the BBQ sampler which I really enjoyed. The brisket was the best thing on my plate by far.

My friend and I were in town for a couple days and we stopped here after a game in Charlotte. It was late but the place was still pretty crowded but we got seated right away. I ordered the small portion of the pulled pork with fries and mac&cheese. My friend ordered some hot buffalo wings with fries. The pulled... More

We had a great time at the Steel Creek location. The outdoor music (Kevin & Ellie) were great along with amazing wings and brisket. We will be back!!
