This is the second outlet of Mac's Speed Shop at which we've eaten. We've enjoyed both places. The Spark Plug burger was really good. Our waitress did a good job. Now the confusing part: we came to Mac's because we were going to have an...extended family meal in honor of the birthday of my 91 year old Dad. Due to COVID people wanted outdoor seating. Mac's was one of the few places that came up on a Google search for outdoor seating. We not only phoned several days ahead (nearly a week) but we went back to the restaurant a couple of days ahead and confirmed our reservation. When we reached the restaurant, there was no indication that any steps had been taken to prepare for our group of 11 people. Instead of getting under the roof, we were out in the sun with shortage of shade umbrellas. Our waitress helped us take care of that. So, 1) I was disappointed and confused about the reservation process. When we had confirmed, it all seemed clear, when we actually arrived, we were told that's "no guarantee". Makes me wonder how they perceive a "reservation". That was a disappointment because the sun was really hot that day. However, being a bit of an older crowd, we had folks with hearing aids. So, probably, ultimately, sitting under the roof with TVs on wasn't a great idea. Instead we had hot sun and lots of traffic noise. It all worked out, but I would raise a caution about anyone actually thinking they are making a reservation here.More

We were seated outside. It was sooooo humid. Too hot out. Motorcycles all around us. Dogs were welcome outside. I forgot smoking was permitted in NC. Ugh! Our server, Megan, suggested drinks. We ordered our meals. I had Stems and Seeds salad. My husband and...friends had the pulled pork.More

So we arrived about 8 pm on a Saturdayto a packed house. We had no reservations so we had to settle for Takeout. Have to tell you that even a takeout this was great BBQ. We had the 4 Combo with Brisket, Pulled Pork, Ribs...and Beef Sausage. All were great, nice smoke and flavour with 2 in-house sauces for dipping. Recommend all but the Beef Sausage was overcooked or over smoked so Not the same level of flavour. Sides were Coleslaw, Beans with Pulled Pork, Sweet Potatoe Fries and Green Bean Casserole . All great but I would skip the fries and go double baked beans. Hopefully we can stay and dine next time but we’ll worth the $40 price tagMore

Only reason I rated it a 3/5 was because I was not impressed with the service. Other than that I went for lunch and had a great brisket sandwich and a drink. They have a great outdoor patio and bar area. Great place to grab...drinks after work!More

Real good barbecue. I had the medium pulled pork sandwich with the chili side. Everything was great including the hush puppies. The staff was very nice.

We stopped in on the way home from Fla. to meet friends for lunch. They were having a fundraiser at the time so the place was busy. Our waitress, Amanda, was awesome , had a full deck and bar and there was hardly any wait....Will definitely stop in again. The wings are awesomeMore

We've been to MAC'S twice. The first time was amazing!The second time, we were not whacked up side the head with miraculous food and service. But all are nice and they do their best. ANYWHERE, even at home, you don't have a guarantee. It's been...awhile but I am ready to toss the dice on MAC'S again! I forget the beer, but it was amazing! I think it was a German brand. I only ordered "one" because the latter beers tend to lose that first kick, if you get me.More
