If you enjoy BBQ, and burgers then this is the place for you. Casual setting makes a great place to watch a game, grab a beer and catch up with friends or meet new friends. Everytime I come here I love my food!

My wife and I have been here a number of times and always enjoy it. Their BBQ is great, as are their sides and drink selection. They always keep many local craft brews on tap, which I appreciate. They recently (within the last year) remodeled their outdoor area, which now has a covered bar area complete with tvs, in addition... More

Excellent BBQ! I would recommend trying a combo platter and sharing it so that you can try a little of everything.

My husband and I goto Mac's speed shop whenever we want grilled/ smoked chicken - be it Wings or beer can chicken, this place is one of the best for the people living in Charlotte uptown. You never get bored of the options available, they have a variety of good sauces and my favorite is smoked burnin' hot. The only... More

I needed a quick place to grab as couple of BBQ sandwiches and pulled in this place. It's a busy place but I'm glad I made the stop. Bartender was extremely nice and friendly, even though they had just opened and she was busy getting her register in order. I had my sandwiches in less than 5 minutes and had... More

Working my way up through the south and making some side stops for BBQ. I actually found macs online as a place to get beef ribs. The ribs were excellent. Staff was ok Not bad, not great. Food was great. We had the beef rib and Mac cheese. Both made us glad we stopped!

Visited here for the first time in years last Firday evening. Got seated right away, which was a surprise. The three of us ordered Brisket, Barbeque and and a burger. All were delicious, and served quickly. Service was great in every respect. The place was noisy, but still fun. Suitable for our family dinner. The sides were also delicious.

So, it's loud. It's busy. The craft beer choices are oddly overwhelming. The fried catfish dinner is amazing. I'd order again. Onion rings were good, but next time I am in town, I'll be back just to get a double side of the collard greens. They were tender, flavorful, and frankly, the best I have ever had at a restaurant.

I admit I'm from Kansas City area where we have the world's greatest BBQ. I also smoke my own. So potentially I'm just a BBQ snob. But this place was a miss for me when it comes to BBQ. In the future I'd go with the burger or wings or non-BBQ items. BBQ....we all have our favorites. I had the... More
