Good atmosphere and Good food. We ate outside and it was a little loud since it was right on the street, but the food and the weather made up for the noise.

I thoroughly enjoyed the brisket sandwich I ordered for lunch. I asked a business partner to pick a place that was good and locally owned. He picked a great place.

Best fried catfish I have ever had. Came here a couple months ago when I was in town, and it was good, so I came back. Even better this time.

Ordered the large BBQ plate and it was a a mound of mushy and fatty BBQ. Highly disappointed. As the business has grown it appears that the quality has dropped. Thankfully the side dishes made up for the poor BBQ quality that day.

When we asked at our hotel, Wyndham Garden, for a good place to eat, mac's Speed Shop was the first recommendation. They were not wrong. Good BBQ, great atmosphere and reasonable prices. Yes, the brisket is outstanding!

Mac's has great pulled pork BBQ. Stopped in last Friday to get 5 lbs of bulk barbecue. Fast service and they gave me a bottle of their sauce to go with my order.

Mac's has several locations in the Charlotte area, but the South Blvd. location is my favorite. Outside seating is great. Food is phenomenal. I always get the collard greens and get a large catering tray of them during the holidays. I consider myself a BBQ snob because my husband makes delicious BBQ at home, but I love Mac's. It's the...

Our cab driver was supposed to take us to Mert's but misunderstood us and dropped us off at Mac's! Delightful surprise! Everything was so delicious especially the shrimp n grits because they were so cheesy! Cool atmosphere outside and southern vibes. Nothing like some good bbq.

This was my first time visiting this location and I was very disappointed in my experience. It was around 3/4pm on Thursday oct 13, 2016. First, our waitress tried to give my 8 year old son his drink with a large blonde hair clearly sticking out the top. I had to politely tell her before she sat it down to... More

The beef rib is excellent and not easy to find. Wide selection of draft beers. Good outdoor eating venue.
