“A Blacksburg Tradition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Been coming for almost 30 years and it is always my 1st stop every time I come back to town. Great atmosphere (especially on Friday evenings of football game weekends), a menu of sandwiches so extensive, I still don't think I've made it all the way through the list yet (try the Brooklyn Bridge - beyond delicious...and if you can finish it in one sitting, you're more stomach than I am). The potato skins are always a must (best I've ever had) and there's a good selection of draft beers (it's never a bad thing when you need 2 hands to lift your huge goblet). I left Blacksburg in 1991 but when I make my annual treks north for ball games, it still always feels like home.

“Macado's Rocks!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

It its not fancy, but, yes, this is one of the best meals because this place knows how to deliver good food, quickly and has great customer service. Even if there is a crowd waiting, it never takes too long to be seated. The servers will do all they can to accommodate special requests. There is such a variety on the menu, it is a great place to come with a diverse group. Don't expect find dining, but enjoy it for what it is.

“Always a pleasure, So many choices!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

The Macado's experience is always a pleasure if you like variety and great food at great value. Hit the spot after a VT game which is always a great end to the day. The family and I had a great starter dip and the entree choices are endless. I would dare say there are over 50 sandwich choices and every on that comes out looks fabulous. One of us had the Brooklyn Bridge which looked amazing. The salads are great as well.

Great place for families and kids. Very relaxed and !!fun spot
