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

Macs is hands down the best bbq in charlotte. I love it when I feel a craving for some mac and cheese. Very casual so leave you Louboutin's at home.

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!

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.

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.

They have a good menu, good food and good service. The outdoor seating is nice when the weather is good. I like the BBQ there, very good. Highly recommended.

I have visited the South Boulevard location a dozen times or so, and it really seems to be the place to see and be seen. Great hush puppies and beef brisket. I wasn't so impressed with their pulled pork barbecue- I've had better at other restaurants in Charlotte (Bill Spoon's and McKoy's come to mind). Their brunswick stew, as much as I hate to say it, is just awful... I ordered it three different times hoping I had just previously caught the restaurant on a bad night, but no. But if you're looking for a social hot spot that's very "Charlotte", Mac's is a great choice.

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.

our family loves mac's - something for everyone - pulled pork sandwiches are tasty and not too heavy - just the right amount of spice and flavor. but their salads are also divine. My son's favorite is the Sonya salad - a southwestern concoction. kid friendly and fun for adults too. we bring out of town guests here quite a bit.

Visited this place while on a bike ride with my brother and his friends. They talked it up a bit so I had to try it. Man was it delicious. The pulled pork sandwich was out of this world. Look forward to going back in the spring.

Mac's is certainly the best barbeque in Charlotte. It's a biker bar that is a "trendy" place to be seen. The last time I was there, a ferrari and a lamborghini were in the parking lot. The reason is because the food is great. The brisket sandwich is out of this world, the pulled pork is very good, and all of their sides are excellent. I highly recommend Mac's!

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.

Mac's is definitely the best barbeque around with a fun atmosphere to boot! I've had quite a bit of BBQ in my day (attended college in eastern N.C. - a BBQ haven) and Mac's is definitely up there with the best I've had! Marketed as a biker's bar/restaurant, it's a great mix of people and the menu is full of yummy favorites! The hush puppies are wonderful! They have tons of beer choices and the menu prices are more than reasonable! My only complaint is the lack of parking and, the place is rather small, so it's always packed (a sure sign of great food)!

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.

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.

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.

I'm not a big fan of BBQ, but I love Mac's! The atmosphere -- a biker bar -- is fantastic for a great fun, casual evening out with friends. I've had some of my best experiences at biker bars -- first in Chicago, and now here in Charlotte. Although there are a lot of bikers who frequent Mac's, it's not just for bikers; it's a mix of people of all walks of life, where all are welcome. The menu is "fun," and you'll find a lot of interesting items available that most restaurants don't offer. Deviled eggs for an appetizer, anyone? The pulled pork is very flavorful and the multiple side items from which you can choose to accompany your meal are tasty too (I recommend the green bean casserole and mac & cheese!). And, on top of all that, you won't find a better domestic and international beer selection anywhere...and value-priced! I've been able to try some beers I've never heard of before and get to try something new each and every time! And while later at night, it may not be for kids, it was fun to take three kids there and sit outside on the picnic tables for an early evening meal. They enjoyed it as much as we adults did.

Pros: BBQ, menu selection, side item choices, beer selection, price

Cons: Crowded on Friday and Saturday night, but worth it!

I love BBQ and have lived in a lot of places that claim to have the best. I think I found it at Mac's.
Very unique atmosphere but not a good choice for kids. Dining area is mixed with the "bar" and can be smokey at times.
Good place to go if you are dining alone. You can sit at one of the high top tables or at the bar and not be obvious you're there alone (unless you want to be!).
Definitely worth a try, you won't be disappointed.

Where do you start with this place. What do you get when you mix bikers, preppies, and hippies eating BBQ and wings? That's right...Mac's Speed Shop. The best wings I have ever had. Restaurants try and get away with selling nothing but bones, but not this place. You get every bit what you pay for. And not to mention great BBQ! All in a unique atmosphere you must see for yourself. Eat inside in the cool grill & bar or hang out at the patio area with picnic tables (with live music, certain nights). Stays crowded, parking tough at times.
