This place has great bbq . It is a speed shop so expect it to be noisy and somewhat of a bar scene. They have outdoor seating and that is less noisy than eating inside . They also have Bike Night every Wednesday night so keep that in mind .

Great barbecue and cool atmosphere. Fried fish is really good too, and a lot of it. Thirty-two characters to go. Made it!

You will not be disappointed with mac's speed shop. The service is very good and fast. The food is excellent. The best BBQ that I have ever had in America and I've traveled to almost every state in America. Take the time to stop.

The food is good and service is acceptable. I don't know why everybody thinks it's so great. I think it's over priced.

Went there for a later dinner with family and it was very good. My husband had the dry rub wings and those were delicious. Service and food was very good. Definitely a must try place.

Yes - its true... on this street off I-77 next door to a Comfort Inn is the best BBQ anywhere! You simply gotta stop in and try it out.. looks like HUNDREDS of beers on the list, and a few wines that are 1/2 off on Tuesdays :-) - and then the BBQ - OMG - a HUUGE beef rib... More
