Mac's...don't let the motorcycles scare you off!

Great food, bar atmosphere, but ok for families. Not your typical bar food, LOTS of people come here for the food! Meats are delicious and they are offer a great selection of "sides".

WOW. Pretty impressed with this place. Food was actually way better than I expected, and after 10 days in the USA, I'd say it rated pretty high! Excellent range of beers served by genuinely friendly staff.

We were really craving good BBQ for the game, and I had waited much too late to order from my usual BBQ place, who had NO availability for take out. I called Mac's, ordered BBQ, mac and cheese, and hushpuppies. They threw in some extra hushpuppies, too! It was delicious! I'll make sure to come back soon!

I liked the cool atmosphere, but it was a little small and crowded, not very much room to move around when it's full as it was the weekend I was there. I had a hand-pulled barbeque sandwich which was delicious. Fair price for a fair amount of food, I left full. Would definitely go back.

While it's not the best I've had, it was a pretty good experience. The food was all well prepared with the exception of the ribs which were a bit over done and dry. They don't have cornbread on the menu, I did find that odd and disappointing. The place is loaded with atmosphere and a cool vibe. Lots of beer... More

This is a fun,casual place to meet friends and have a well-done barbeque meal. The atmosphere is interesting and lively. It's pretty loud so people with kids don't have to feel awkward if they pipe up. They have something for just about anyone on the menu. I appreciated how clean the place is. The outdoor seating is awesome for warmer... More

I've been to Mac's a few times over the last 5 years. You would have to rate it very good when they were the only show in town for ribs and brisket. Although their BBQ remains unchanged in terms if it's good quality, there are now better places in town (Midwood ) that offer better BBQ and better sides. This... More

Mac'z Speed Shop is a great place for good food and fun fellowship. Their sampler plate is awesome. Many brew choices and great service.
