“Great BBQ and Beer”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Great menu choices - go with a platter if you would like a good mix. Great beer menu featuring a lot of NC local brewerys.

“If you are looking for North Carolina BBQ this is the place”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Mac's is a huge place with tons of outdoor seating. The menu was a meat lovers dream. The service on a very busy Saturday was exceptional. Some of the sides were a bit average for the price, but on the whole, it was worth the short trip from downtown. The place is really noisy inside but outside, not so much. Outside seating is wooden picnic tables almost to the curb of a busy street. Worth a look, I believe.

The best brisket!! Good service even when busy. Sometimes a little louder than I'd like, but overall, great cue and sides!

“Not so speedy and overrated food.”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Heard a lot, drove a long way, waited a long time for food and the 'que was dry and stringy. Big on sports/biker atmosphere.

“The best place I've found in Charlotte.”
Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

The food is absolutely delicious. The value is good and the beer selection is extreme. I have never had a better beef rib anywhere else. If you want a fun, relaxed atmosphere for a crazy good meal, go to Mac's.
