“Unique decor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

The restaurant theme was bikers. Rather noisy inside but we got seated in a booth which helped. BBQ was excellent. We got the large platter with 4 extra sides and it was enough to feed the six of us. Also got fried pickles which were spicy HOT!!! Good sweet tea. The french fries had a coating that was delicious. Everyone enjoyed the grits and collard greens as several in out party had never tasted those items. A good NC BBQ experience.

“Excellent beer can chicken”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Going to Charlotte and not wanting to stray too far from the Hotel it was recommended by one of the staff to try Mac's Speed Shop for BBQ. I had to get a BBQ sampler with Beer Can Chicken, Brisket and Ribs, because I was being indecisive and was hungry. The baked beans with the big pieces of slow cooked bacon were awesome, the beer can chicken was moist and juicy and very flavorful. The staff was very polite and attentive. The restaurant was decent with a sports bar atmosphere. There is a quite a bit of Pittsburgh Steelers influence in here - take that however you want.

“Love ambiance and food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Food is what drew us at Mac's after getting tons of recommendations - and they were on the mark, I have had many great BBQ meals there, and I've equally enjoyed the location.

“Lot's of beer, not a lot of BBQ sauce offerings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Great place to try new beers, very friendly service, but for a BBQ place the BBQ is just average. The meat is tasty but they have very limited BBQ sauces to choose from. I like a thicker sauce, must of theirs are very runny and do not hold to the meat. I go back every 6 months or so to see if anything has changed, and in 5 years it has not. No wonder they got knocked out in the first round of the Charlotte Observers best of Charlotte BBQ contest.

“Great Steelers bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

My wife and I went to Mac's for the first time and split a meal. The barbeque was great and portions very good. Great beer on tap and it is a Steelers Bar so will definately be back in the fall. Very casual atmosphere.
