The food is pretty good. Portions are big. I especially like the chopped beef sandwiches and the ribs. The potatoe salad is not great. Pinto beans are all you can eat for no extra charge.

Had heard much about this place. Showed up and had one of THE WORST barbecue experiences of my life. First off, the food wasn't great. Second, they got the order wrong. Third, when I went up to the counter to correct my order the guy standing behind it looked at me like I had just shot his grandmother.

Really enjoyed the food my husband who I shared. They make some good barbecue. But I think that a lot of their items are just a little too much.

Their chicken is the most tender and moist BBQ chicken I know of and I am not usually a big chicken fan but theirs is much different

From the moment you walk into McKenzie's you feel at home. They have good BBQ, old fashion hamburgers and great old fashion french fries.

I ate dinner here last week. It was good bbq. My only issue was that you're other allowed to double up on one kind of meat for a two meat plate. It doesn't make much sense to me.

I worked at McKenzies years ago while in college and every time I go back to Huntsville I have to go eat some BBQ at McKenzies and stock up on sauce and spices. The ribs have always been great, the meat is tender and the spices are what bring it all together. People come from miles around for the sweet... More

While visiting Huntsville we decided to try this restaurant because my son was craving barbecue. I quickly looked up reviews on Tripadvisor and saw that people really liked it. Well, unfortunately, it is very average barbecue. The best thing about it was the tender brisket and the beans. The potato salad wasn't good, and the sausage was very bland. The... More

This place gives you more than you can eat, and everything they fix is great. Went here with large group of friends and had a wonderful place in the backroom. Good place to go with a group.

We come here once a week. I just love baked potatoes and this is the place to get them. My husband usually gets a BBQ plate. When you do visit, you must try the Oreo pudding. So decadent!
