We've eaten lunch and dinner here before and really enjoy when there's music outside. My husband and son got the barbecue plate and I got the quesadillas for lunch this visit. Servers were friendly and attentive. The food came fast and was delicious. The chocolate brownie dessert was a bit dry but overall the meal was great.

I love the brisket and pulled pork bbq best! Hubby and I split a combo platter of 4 and get the chicken,brisket,ribs, pulled pork option with mac and cheese and slaw. Ask for hush puppies as they are part of the entrée. Mac n cheese is a crowd pleaser in its self. Out door bands on weekends while you dine... More

We recently let Mac's BBQ do the cooking for a small family reunion meal. BBQ and the fixings were all ready on time and properly packaged for pickup. Everyone enjoyed it and numerous positive comments were received. We did get a tray of banana pudding that wasn't up to expectations. We've had it previously but this batch was short on... More

My wife and I recently dropped by Mac's Speed Shop in Cornelius for a Saturday night supper after an afternoon of working at home and running errands. We were quickly seated; there were a lot of families and ball teams in the restaurant, so there was a lot of laughter and fun going on all around us. Our server Julia... More

Lunch with wife after my semi annual haircut! I had pulled pork plate and she had the smoked beer can chicken plate....both excellent meats. Combine them with store made onion rings, the best hushpuppies in town, super sweet tea, and excellent service. BINGO

I really can't believe this place has a rating as high as it does. This is the third time we've been in about five years and it's just not good. I ordered wings.....how can you mess those up? They were so bad I didn't eat them at all. My side order was onion rings...it came with 4 rings. Really, that's... More

Right next door to the hotel where we stayed so didn't have to get back in the car. Very rustic decor but food was excellent and the draft beer selection was HUGE! Had the pulled pork which was about the best I've ever had. Smoked chicken quesadilla was very good also.

I've been here twice with friends and family. If you like sports, this is a great hangout. It can get quite noisy so if you're trying to have a good conversation, definitely go somewhere else. The food in general is good, but it's very limited for vegetarians. One of my meals was great and the other was just so-so. Everyone... More
