My friend and I stopped in a the South Charlotte location for a quick drink and dinner and the BBQ did not disappoint! We had almost the same thing (so my photos of the meals look like dupes almost)! We loved the Barbeque tips and if you like collard greens, they are amazing too! I really enjoyed the little pickle garnish that they place on the side and the sweet potato fries were on point! We had no wait time and we enjoyed a table in the outside bar area. They had a good selection of beer and I had a hard cider. The live band that was playing was a bonus that we didnt expectit was a very casual, relaxing vibe when we went last night. I have also frequented their location in Cornelius, and the food was equally good. Macs Speed-shop also has bike nights and other activities listed for the month (posted in the restroom). Other patrons also had dogs in the outdoor area which was nice to see. I wish I had room for dessert, but Ill have to try that next time!
This location has a very calm atmosphere if youre looking to spend some time by yourself or with love ones in a not so crowded environment. I ordered the 6pc wing half hot half barbecue for about $12. I asked them to cook a little longer because often the chicken can seem a little undone or too pink in the middle. I also ordered a shrimp taco for about $5 which was OK, I cant say that I will order it again there was nothing special about it. My mother got the St. Louis ribs with two sides macaroni and tater tots, the macaroni was surprisingly good! We also got two drinks that wasnt good at all I dont recommend the drinks nothing special about it also didnt taste well. I have to mention that people came with dogs which we are not a fan of at all. The dog owners also wasnt respectful of other peoples space and keeping there dog from trying to lick guest.They did offer a lunch special but we did not order from that. I also got a banana pudding to go to try which was good as well. Overall I gave the place a six out of 10 because there was nothing really worth going back for. In total I spent around $90 at this location
This place is just getting better. I typical visit the location on South Tryon but decided to gives this location a shot. Alana our server was excellent and gives great drink recommendations. Food was hot and well seasoned. Great atmosphere. Did not have to wait for outside seating. Front door hosts were funny and entertaining. Definitely be back.
It's my wife and kids choice for dining here. I was the first time but they were not. Their specialty is BBQ. Well, I wasn't disappointed. I like their pull pork and fried ocra. Buffalo wings were also very tasty. Oh! We waited 30 minutes but I think it's worth of the wait. This place is, of course, a bar. The atmosphere was pretty good for a leisure dinning. People enjoy chatting, drinking, and good food for a good time. Definitely recommend it.
Great authentic BBQ. Beans and Mac and cheese our favorite sides. Chopped brisket and ribs favorite meats. Bone in chicken also delish. Pulled pork was not that great. Has two flights of beer so got to try great local beers too!
