Great dinner

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... read 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.

food is very tasty & service is always very good. Nice motel across the street & off the beaten path on a side street, also across from a Nascar museum. 1/2 mile from the main interstate/highway.

Were on business overnite in Cornelius on a Thursday evening. Saw restaurant next to our hotel and walked there. The smell of smokey BBQ was amazing. We ordered beers and smoked wings for our appetizer, they were delicious. For our meals my Husband ordered a hamburger with smoked bacon and cheese, and I ordered smoked beef brisket , such a...

Went here with the family. The food was super good and we got a lot on the plate. Prices were reasonable, especially given the quantity of food. The waitress wasn't very friendly, but she got everything right. The only complaint was the noise level, but that's the kind of place it is I suppose. Loved that we got 20% off... More

Beef Brisket, Beer Can Chicken and their you-create-it Bloody Mary Bar on Sundays are a must! I've been here a few times and have no complaints...you definitely should try it once!

Fun, Good Food and a great atmosphere. It is our "go to" place when we are hungry for excellent barbecue. Fun bar.

This was our second time here. This place is awesome. Great food and a great atmosphere. If you're just wanting to come for drinks, it's a great place. If you're with family, this place will accommodate. Can't wait to go back.
