Dog-friendly outdoor seating. Motorcycles welcome. Large variety of food choices. Friendly staff. Open late. We've eaten here during our travels for the past three years. Food is consistently tasty.

Friendly service and the food was pretty good. It's loud in there though and that made it hard to hear the server. You get a discount if you show that you're staying at the motel across the parking lot.

The BBQ and chicken dishes are delicious. My husband really likes the beef brisket. It is very tender and cooked to perfection. You can choose your own Mac's BBQ suace. They have 4 or 5 to choose from. All are delicious.

The hostess was not friendly. The customers were rude to travelers. We didn't stay to eat because of this. I don't know how the food is.

We came in on Wednesday night for a quick dinner. The place was moderately busy, we were seated promptly and placed an order shortly after: 2 large pulled pork BBQ plates, Brunswick stew and collards with each plate. The food was served relatively quickly, however we noticed the large pulled BBQ portions were much smaller (about 60% of what it... More

We came for an early dinner about 4:00 on a Friday night, not too busy. Very good and attentive service. We have the chips and salsa with queso as an appetizer and it was really good. We ordered burgers for dinner and a kids Quesadilla which was good too. The hush puppies they gave us were super and I don't... More

I'm a longtime customer of Mac's in Cornelius, with weekly visits for a number of years. In that time I've seen the location change a lot, but fortunately the food has remained consistently great. In fact, it's some of the best barbeque in the area, period, and I'm saying that in comparison to a lot of great choices we have... More

We ate here because close to the hotel. The food was very good. We did takeout and it was very fast. The one negative is we were told by hotel that we would get 20 percent off if we showed key card however when we tried it at restaurant they said the discount was for dine in only.
