“Very nice restaurant in a college town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

This is a small chain of restaurants located primarily in college towns in Virginia and North Carolina. The Blacksburg location is very nice, about a mile or so from Virginia Tech's campus. The food was good and the atmosphere was really nice. No wait on a summer Saturday evening (might be different when the students are in town).

“Fantastic Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

2013 Virginia Tech move-in and found Macado's a short walk from our hotel. Our server, Ellie, was above and beyond any server we've had in a long time! Food was amazing and prices were extremely reasonable. DO NOT MISS this gem during your Blacksburg stay.

“Awesome establishment!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

We recently had a wedding rehersal dinner at Macado`s in Blacksburg, VA. I will have to say these people here were the best I have ever encountered. The food was awsome and they bent over backwards to make sure our event went off without a hitch. The management and staff were always there and asking what else they could do to help. Everyone at the party commented how great they were. In my opinion, they have set the bar for other places to shoot for. Whenever you are in the area, I hope you will stop by. I intend to go back everytime we are in town. Thanks to everyone at Macado`s!!!!!!

“Typical college town restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

Near the VT campus, the atmosphere of this restaurant is typical of restaurants that cater to college students. Lots of pub-like menu options. Food was good but not particularly memorable. Service was fine.

“Fun for families and large groups”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

We ate here twice while visiting VTech for a soccer event. The kids loved the huge King Kong and the memorabilia displays. The sandwiches and desserts were delicious. It is not fancy but perfect for a quick family meal or a large group. We were with several families and the staff handled it really well with separate checks and getting all the food out at the same time.
