The sausage sampler was excellent. The burgers and fried catfish platters were delicious and with great portions. The hush puppies were excellent. Service was great.

Don't get me wrong. I love all styles of BBQ except SC because I have never gotten used to mustard bases sauces on BBQ. The BBQ is very good but more Texas Style. A number of prok dishes on the menu but emphasis is on beef which puts it in the Texas or Kansas City type. Sauce, presentatiion etc would... More

From Michigan and traveling to Florida. This restaurant is next door to our hotel (Comfort Inn). I had high expectations based on the great reviews and they were met. Excellent Margarita, hushpuppies (complementary), and brisket plate. The side salad was great with shredded lettuce and Ranch to die for. Mac & cheese was great too. Added bonus that we got... More

I can't believe I have waited so long to try Mac's. I had a small bbq pork sandwich which was huge and the meat absolute heaven. I'm a bbq snob and it was some of the best bbq I've ever had. It was nice to have a variety of sauces on the table to try but the meat was soooo... More

Depending upon what you are looking for, Mac's could be the best or the worst. The typo in the review a few spots down actually is accurate--"You can go wrong with Mac's". We were a family group coming for the food and beer. Both were great. I had a quarter barbecue chicken and got a taste of the Carolina barbecue.... More

The food is normally very good. They have a good selection of wings and great brisket. the side dishes including the mac and cheese is normally very good. The inconsistency comes from the wait staff. There are some really good wait staff and then there's others that do not need to be working there. I prefer good customer service over... More

We stopped here on our way to Charleston because my wife had not eaten here. She was quite impressed! Now if you are looking for a fancy sit down dinner keep driving. This is a very good place to get great food and cold beer. It is an upscale Beer, Biker, BBQ restaurant that has excellent sandwiches. We had the... More

I frequent Macs a lot and I just can't get enough of their brisket. Its is absolutely the best item they do here. Beers are good and oh yes the Mac and Cheese is extremely great. You can go wrong with Macs!

I had lunch here during a recent visit from Florida. I had the beef brisket burrito, which was delicious. Good beer choices, too.
