We split a small platter of ribs, pulled pork, brisket, and beer can chicken for lunch. It was just the right amount with slaw and beans. The red sauce and the Carolina sauce were wonderful. Even the mustard sauce and vinegar sauce complemented the fantastic-tasting meat.

Had a delicious meal, ridiculously large and flavorful beef rib (yes, one), Mac and cheese, with collard greens. Couldn't finish the beef rib and took an apple bread pudding home. My daughter mentioned that the new beer craze in Charlotte was sour beers and the waitress was more than happy to get me a sample of three that were on... More

I stopped in for a quick lunch and the bartender was so sweet. I ordered beef brisket which was delicious and it was in front of me within 5 mins. Definitely worth eating here.

There were four of us and both couples ordered a sample Platter. Plenty of food for two people. They have a great selection of alcoholic beverages including micro brewery beers. The place has tons of Flat Screens to watch a game or multiple games. The assortment of chicken and pork barbecue were amazing. The beef brisket was very flavorful but... More

The first time I came here unfortunately was not a good one. Got a heaping helping of gristle in my 'cue. Decided to give it a few more chances and each time has been better than the last. It's great when you find out a mistake is just that and the food is actually very good. Now one of my... More

I live in Columbia, SC and a few times a year my husband and I drive and hour to Charlotte just so we can eat here. The collard greens are AMAZING and you have to try there sauces. We always purchase the vinegar base.

Love the atmosphere, and the food. The BBQ sandwich and the Mac and Cheese are amazing, seriously. It's a great place to grab dinner and a drink. The fried pickles are also amazing!

Stopped in for lunch on a Saturday and although there was a lot of people it wasn't crowded. Service was quick and the food was great. Plenty of college basketball on several tvs to keep up with the games. Recommend if in the area.

Awesome food, sauces and atmosphere! If you travel to Charlotte, NC, you must visit Mac's Speed Shop (2511 S. Blvd.) and order the platter, "A whole Lot of Stuff" ... enough to feed 2 hungry folks or 3-4 average hungry eaters! (Choose 4: Hand Pulled Pork, Beer Can Chicken, St. Louis Ribs, Texas Beef Sausage, or Beef Brisket).

Thank Cheryl S
