Fast service. Good food. There are different types of BBQ sauce you can try. The waitress Kaitlin suggesed Mac n cheese and beans as the best sides. I tried them both and they were great. If you want fast, simple, good food at a reasonable price give it a try!

Outstanding beer list and even better burgers and BBQ. Really great low key atmosphere and outdoor seating.

During our stay in Charlotte my colleagues and I visited both branches. Not a lot to choose or differ between the two so the same review will be posted to both. This place was recommended by a local and, oh boy, what a great recommendation. Seated as soon as walked in, we were given menus and told about the $3... More

I always go to the South Blvd Mac's and I love it. They've got a friendly staff, good management, great food and good beer selection. The outside patio is awesome on a cool evening and the TV selection is great for sports watching. I highly recommend Mac's.

That's the motto of this great BBQ place. Warehouse like with great food, quick service and multiple BBQ Sauces to appeal to anyone's taste buds. We like the pulled pork the best, but other meats were excellent along with the beans and Mac-n-cheese. Hush puppies are a must.

A decent meal, some good beers but on our visit 2 of 6 beers were not available. Brisket was tasty, but it seemed to be dry. Beer Can chicken was moist, slaw crisp and good variation on the usually too wet and too savory versions. Service quick and efficient, but more perfunctory than friendly. Prices were set at appropriate value... More
