The food is good but always seem to be out of the beer I want. Also, the service is hit or miss as they can RUDE if they are busy. I have been told, when I ask about why its taking 45 minutes for my food, that everyone's waiting because they are busy. RUDE.
This place is fantastic – Mac's catered an event I went too and they got me hooked. Hands down some of the best BBQ i've ever had. And their mac n' cheese is delicious
Great BBQ!! – I luv the atmosphere. BBQ, Beer, & TVs!!!
I have a kid so its nice to be able to take her to eat while watching a game and having a beer!!
If you do not like kids then go to a club. Restuarants are for all types of people, even families!
This Restaurant is "Biker Poser" chic – I've been to Mac's three times. Each time I was on my bike. The first time actually did not count as I was heading to their Euro Bike nite only to find out when I got there it was cancelled. Instead they had some social mix and mingle for the Charlotte elite downtown banker crowd.
I have been back two other times and actually ate here. The food is not bad, but I went here because I thought it was more geared towards bike owners. WOW was I wrong. Each time the place was packed with young socialites and families with kids running around unsupervised. Sure they have a few spots out front for bikes to park and they have lots of biker crap on the walls but that is about it. Other than the occasional bike nite no bikers go here and now I know why.
Atmosphere? Fun! BBQ? Ehhh... – I'm from Eastern NC and started eating pulled pork BBQ before my mom stopped bottle feeding me. I decided to try Mac's after hearing several of my friends rave, "Oh, it's the BEST BBQ in Charlotte!!!" I must say, though, I was disappointed. I've had much better and more flavorful BBQ (even here in Charlotte). The pulled pork was bland, dry and had NO flavor, even after I poured sauce on it. I've had pulled pork so flavorful, no sauce was needed - but I didn't get it at Mac's. The sides were good - great onion rings and slaw! And the atmosphere is fun. Maybe it was just the pulled pork - because I really don't see how anyone who knows anything about BBQ would say that's the best BBQ in Charlotte.
Awesome place! – The food is awsome, mac and cheese and greenbean casserole are great!! the other reviews are old and outdated i have never seen kids running around. Parking can be tough at times but not terrible, motorcycles get first priority and are a pleasure to drive up there. Great beer selection too! Overall experience is great. I go at least once a month.
Not the best-too many kids – Fair BBQ, but not the best in town. If the service was friendlier, it might make up for a lot of problems. Each visit has the food and service getting worse. I liked it better when it was mainly locals in the area. I really hate all the children allowed to roam free. I am sure it helps to make the wait staff more surly.
Average food, horrible service, parking is a joke. – The food is average and seems to get worse over time. I will not go back. Service used to be great, now it is horrible. Parking is a joke unless you ride a motorcycle. If you park on the back street, be careful, you could get towed or your car might get broken into. Both have happened to friends.
Good food, average service – I have been to Mac's on numerous occasions. The food is quite tasty. If you're not a BBQ person, try the burger - its probably the best I've had. Mac and cheese is also quite tasty. Great beer selection. Unfortunately, I have yet to experience good service. On our last visit, we had to ask the table next to us if we could borrow their ketchup as our waitress was MIA for about 15 minutes.
Great food and fun atmosphere – I followed a recommendation from a friend and went to Mac's. The food has amazing flavor, and meals are generous and good value for the price. Also impressed with the beer selection. This place is always busy, and I can see why. Be prepared to wait for a table. Children and large groups will be best served on weeknights. Great for people and bike watching on weekends.
