I have been here many times in the past & have had both good & bad experiences -hence the low rating of 3. Food goes between awesome to gross, the same can be said of the service. Sorry, not sorry. After a hiatis of over a year, it was my idea to return. Ordered the salsa con queso, the dip... More

There is nothing to dislike about Macado's, the staff is great and the food is the best, if you don't find something to eat on the menu then you are just to picky.

I was taken up the steps to the upper level, which was fine but I have a bit of trouble coming back down the stairs. I ordered a margarita and it wasn't anything special. The food was decent with a variety of selections. If I were to go back, I'd pick the bar seating over going up the stairs. I... More

I loved coming here when I was in college and always try to stop in when I am in Blacksburg. They have an amazing selection of very fulfilling sandwiches. I especially like the Macado sauce. They just don't make sandwich joints like this anymore. The servers are very attentive as well. It is a great place to watch sports as... More

Macado's is a staple in Blacksburg. Awesome selection of sandwiches that are huge. They also have great appetizers, salads and burgers and a wide variety of draft beer to choose from. There really is something for everyone and the atmosphere is very upbeat and includes tons of TV's for watching all your sports. They open early too! We love Macado's... More

Macado's is a regional chain. Their sandwiches are good and portions are plenty. The quirky décor is a tad run down and in my opinion could use some replacement.

This place has a large menu and, I can say that we have never had a bad meal here. In fact, most experiences are good. If you avoid the busy times, it is a bit more enjoyable with respect to the noise level. They have a fine selection of brews, both on tap and in the bottle. We always think... More
