I am a huge fan of BBQ and of collards. They serve some awesome of both. It's kind of an eclectic place. It is a little loud though.

Maybe I was expecting more considering how often mac's appears on best bbq lists for Charlotte. Don't get me wrong the bbq was really good but I didn't walk away saying that was some of the best BBQ that I've had. The combo platter wasn't cheap but I did get generous portions of pulled pork and turkey. The ribs and... More

We love eating here and splurge ever couple of months. One time I ordered brisket and it had a lot of fat but usually its wonderful. I usually get the pork plate with mac & cheese and baked beans, my son usually get Brunswick stew. We enjoy going to this Mac's because there are usually some nice motorcycles to look... More

I've been to mac's several times and each time I leave thinking "what's all the fuss about?" Their food is good but not great... The service is good but not great... Parking is a challenge... It's very loud inside... and the prices are a bit high. With all of that, it is a very popular place and I have good... More

I accompanied a dozen beermen from the State of Oregon (granted we're not the haven for barbeque), but these men insisted on coming to this restaurant TWICE during this weeklong visit! Everything we had on the menu was awesome!

Good food, great draft craft beer selection, and good vibes. Service is prompt and pleasant. Music rocks a bit loud but it fits the energy here.

Went to Mac's twice - the first time was probably amazing because I've been without barbecue for so long (in New England) that I had probably forgotten what good barbecue tasted like - I digress. The first time I went, I was blown away at the size of the portions - I could have fed a small village with the... More

I eat at Mac's every time I'm in Charlotte for business. It a great atmosphere for a business lunch when you just want to have a relaxing time with clients. The bar bq is really good, and their Carolina sauce is my favorite. The Mac and cheese is awesome too.
