From the unusual decorations to the endless menu, Macado's is a long time local favorite. Whether for an occasion or just lunch, there's something for everyone and even though it's a large space, often lines waiting to get in.

I've been going to Macado's for many years now and sometimes the service can be slow, but it is a large restaurant with many levels so the wait staff certainly get their exercise. The sandwiches are generally good and consistent, as are the salads. I have had a bad experience with the french onion soup two times in a row,... More

Came here after a party where we didn't eat much and thoroughly enjoyed the selection and atmosphere!

This restaurant makes very good sandwiches and has a very different decor. For the price you will not beat Macado's along with taste. I recommend this restaurant if you are in the Blacksburg, Virginia area.

My husband and I got sandwiches and they were enormous! Fries order was huge. We took half of our sandwiches home and had them for lunch the next day. Still fantastic! Only issue was it was a slow day and it took awhile to get the check. Would return again.

On a recent visit we were seated promptly but it took a long time for a waiter to take are order. We ordered drink which didn't arrive until after our food as a result of asking for them. Me and another person ordered the pretzel cheese dog and by the time it came out the cheese sauce had congealed. Our... More

Sit in the bar if available. Bartender is your waiter and is very attentive. Friends always meeting. Pitchers reasonably priced. Ask for honey mustard with pretzels instead of chips. Nightly specials. Very reasonably priced.

I've been to this restaurant several times, not because I love it but because it's my great-niece's favorite. If you do go, my recommendation is the fried pickle spears and their mac & cheese. The Ruben is not good. The atmosphere is bright and happening, albeit a bit noisy.

I've eaten here before. This restaurant is located at most Virginia colleges. The sandwiches are medium priced and provide ample ingredients. I had a pastrami Reuben on this visit and it was enjoyable. My one mistake was to go with the chips. They simply give you a bag of Ruffles. The restaurant is located within walking distance of the Inn... More
