This eclectic restaurant has been in Blacksburg over 30 years. It has a wide variety of food selections. They make great sandwiches with fun names. Their desserts are huge. A must stop for anyone visiting the area.

Macado's is a Blacksburg tradition, and I've been doing it these past ten years I've lived here. The food (extensive, though unimaginative sandwich combinations) is very inconsistent. Sometimes, I'm loving Macado's; other times, less than meh. The very 1980's super outdated crowded bric a brac, memorabilia, and oddities might have had its charm but it is so filthy that it...

This lunch I was solo and I sat at the bar. I had southwestern quesadillas instead of one of the many sandwiches and it was tasty and quite filling. They had good happy hour specials but, as I was driving, I stuck to water. :)

Even though ambience is an important part in a restaurant, I will not criticize their decoration too much, although for my taste it's quite creepy and decadent - to each his own I guess. The food, for the choices in the area, is quite average, although the selection is certainly large and I've never had a not-so-fresh experience. Although for... More

For anyone new to the Burg, this place has not changed in years- and that's a good thing. Tons of food choices reasonably priced, great tap selection, and friendly service. I tried the philly cheese steak tacos and was very impressed. My teens love the place too- there is something for everyone!

Macado's has a HUGE menu of sandwiches and other great food. I have visited there many times and I've never been disappointed. The menu can be a bit overwhelming, but if you can always create your own sandwich and be done with it! While there is a large variety of food, I'm always glued to the sandwiches. Very large portions...you... More

Great atmosphere, great service, the food is good and the prices are very reasonable. There's a selection of craft beers that are priced reasonably also.

Go here! Great service, just incredible sandwiches and a neat atmosphere. There are easily 30 different gourmet sandwiches in the menu-amazing, as well as other choices. You can sit with family on the quieter side or in a lively bar area at large sturdy tables good for a party of any size and see the multiple sports screens displayed. There... More

Our food was good, the atmosphere was fun inside, however, our service was very slow and I thought I detected an attitude from server, when I asked for very little and was pretty friendly. Kids noticed it too..maybe off night for her? But anyways, food was good.

Happened across this place during our last trip to Blacksburg and the food and atmosphere were very good. I'm sure we will return upon our future visits.
