A family tradition

This place is consistently good, and reasonably priced. There is a huge selection of sandwiches that will more than fill you up. Try the carpetbagger, it's awesome. Beer selection has expanded too, with some great local stuff. And don't forget dessert- try the cinnamon roll topped with ice cream!

Food is good and there is plenty of it. Caters to students so menu is largely sandwiches but they are huge and delicious. Can get very busy, especially when VT is in session on weekends. Decor is funky and fun. Service was very good.

many kind of sandwich, basically all kind and some salads. Nothing fancy, but good for hang out and have sandwich type dinning. Service was good, but NOT fast. Parking lot is somewhat hill(?) shape, no big deal

Visited this restaurant twice during most recent stay in Blacksburg, and have been there on previous occasions. The service is hit or miss - either good, or just so-so. The food is good, and there are a ton of options. And the price is very reasonable. If you don't mind not always having the best of service, then the food... More

A late night arrival led us to Macados. The service was friendly and prompt given the late hour, and the food hit the spot. A variety of basic pub-type fare and a long list of sandwiches to choose from.

The decor is interesting and fun, but could stand a good cleaning. Sandwiches were top notch, and had fun names like "Titanic" and "Big Daddy". They have french fries on the menu, but only as an appetizer, don't dare ask for fries instead of a bag of chips when you order your sandwich, you can't get them.

My daughter and I had dinner here one night when visiting at Tech. It was freezing in there! Really uncomfortable and we're From New England! Our server was not familiar with the draft beers. I asked for a local brew, he seemed not to know what I meant. Our food was mediocre at best. So disappointing!

Nice selection and value. Great place to take your college student when you come to visit, or for a quiet dinner anytime.

Never miss an opportunity to eat at a Macado's whenever you come across one in Virginia! If sandwiches aren't your thing, I highly recommend their French onion soup or their KC's Mac n Cheese....classic cheesy Mac n cheese with juicy chicken added...Yummo!
