“Average, but fresh”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

We went to Macado's for lunch a few days before New Years. Service was good, but the food was definitely average. I had a reuben, which came out with "soft" rye bread. Anyone who is used to a good Jewish Deli would turn up their nose at this offering. The Corn Beef was fresh, but it was not a traditional reuben. We also had the Beef Dip which was okay and the onion rings which were also passable. If you are not too particular about your deli sandwiches, you may like this place. In an area like Boone, I would expect and want better.

“Cinnamon Buns!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

Do yourself a favor. Go to Macado's, grab yourself a pint and order one (or more) of their cinnamon buns. Those things are awesome! You will not be disappointed. The staff was friendly, we were happy.

Excellent place if you are in downtown Boone to watch a game and get a cold beer. The menu has a very large selection of pub food! Friendly staff and fast service!

“Great sandwiches!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013 via mobile

Had sandwiches and beer for an early lunch while watching the Christmas parade. Delicious sandwiches! Portions are large, lots of fresh meat and veggies, would definitively recommend.

“Don't expect to watch football here”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

We were looking for a place to watch football games on Sunday while in Boone. While Macados does have the NFL ticket and at least two large screens in dining room, it is almost impossible to sit and see more than one TV at a time. Also, even of bar is empty, they will not change TV to a game you request. Bartender says that if they change one TV they would be changing them all day. So, since the food is average and service less than average, we went to The Rock on Blowing Rock Rd. where there are plenty of Tv's and they are 100% willing to change TV to the game you need.
