Visited for dinner, since it has been years since I visited. The menu is huge with many great options. The staff was friendly and helpful. Food was well prepared and tasted great. The atmosphere is nice with plenty to look at and talk about.

Went for lunch on the recommendation of a colleague while touring Va Tech. Fun decor, friendly service, delicious sandwiches. Huge menu.

It has a unique atmosphere with all the crazy decorations and the food is pretty good. The menu consists primarily of sandwiches but they have other things like wings, pastas, and huge salads. The best day for our family to go is on Tuesdays when they have Kids nights. I recommend the Titanic Sub!

Eat lunch here occasionally and service is usually pretty good. Decor is dated. Large wall pieces jumbled together. Food has always been great. Hot and made correctly. Comes quick. The Honeymooner is my favorite sandwich! Ham, bacon, Swiss on a hot buttered croissant. There is also a build your own sandwich option so you can put together any sandwich you... More

Took our Virginia Tech student there for dinner and were offered a booth in the bar as soon as we arrived which was about 7:30. Bartender/waiter promptly took our drink orders. We ordered three sandwiches and then waited for almost 30 minutes with no one checking on us. We finally flagged our waiter who seemed to acknowledge that we had... More

This eclectic restaurant has been in Blacksburg over 30 years. It has a wide variety of food selections. They make great sandwiches with fun names. Their desserts are huge. A must stop for anyone visiting the area.

Macado's is a Blacksburg tradition, and I've been doing it these past ten years I've lived here. The food (extensive, though unimaginative sandwich combinations) is very inconsistent. Sometimes, I'm loving Macado's; other times, less than meh. The very 1980's super outdated crowded bric a brac, memorabilia, and oddities might have had its charm but it is so filthy that it...

This lunch I was solo and I sat at the bar. I had southwestern quesadillas instead of one of the many sandwiches and it was tasty and quite filling. They had good happy hour specials but, as I was driving, I stuck to water. :)

Even though ambience is an important part in a restaurant, I will not criticize their decoration too much, although for my taste it's quite creepy and decadent - to each his own I guess. The food, for the choices in the area, is quite average, although the selection is certainly large and I've never had a not-so-fresh experience. Although for... More
