“Afternoon Snack”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

After spending half the morning driving to Boone and the other half shopping, we were ready for a snack and beer. We had 2 varieties of wings, Sweet Baby Ray's and Thai. Both were very good and very meaty. They have a nice selection of beer. We were all satisfied.

“Largest Menu Ever!”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

There is something on the menu for EVEYONE. I have never seen so many items to choose from. The homemade cinnamon rolls are to die for. Lots of icing and served warm!

“Good sandwich, price and service.”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

They have a large enough menu for everyone in your party to get what they want, but since it's pretty simple food it's not overwhelming. Cost wise it was less then $50 (including drinks, excluding dessert) for five adults.

They have daily specials (Saturday is $5.85 Reubens all day).

I thought the service was pretty good for a game day Saturday in Boone. Considering that it was later at night I thought they would be rushing us, but the waitress wasn't pushy at all and was gave us plenty of time to order etc. As a matter of fact, even after paying our first bill when we decided to order a "Cinnamon Sensations" (try it!), she gave us an additional one (no ice cream) because she said it took us to long.

“Need Help!”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

This was my second visit to Macado's. First time was nice, good service, sandwich was excellent. My second visit was on a football Saturday. The food again was very good but his time there was only one hostess with a line going out the front door. She would appear every 10 minutes or so and ask who was next. Of course with 50 people waiting everyone wnated to be next. Once we were seated we were placed in the Bar area. Once again, the place was packed and the only workers in this area was the two bartenders handling all the tables (I'm guessing 10) plus the full bar as well as making drinks for the rest of the restaurant. Our experience took about 2 hours for sandwiches and a drink. 45 minutes to be seated and order, 15 minutes to get the food, 15 minutes to eat and 45 minutes to find our server to get the bill paid. This experience would have been great had the management had enough staff on hand up front for a football Saturday. by the way, we never seen a Manager the entire time.
