Before deciding to eat at Mac's Barbecue, one would be well-advised to remember that only a couple of miles away is a Rudy's. The brisket Dr. Susan and I ate (I only managed to eat half of mine) was greasy and mostly tasteless. The green beans were straight out of the can without benefit of bacon, onions, or seasoning.

I only had the BBQ sandwich for lunch, but It passed the test. Ordered a sliced, lean sandwich and it was great. Juicy and tender with a taste of oak wood and slight sauce. This is a masterpiece of slow cooking and good meat. Next time I'll order the sliced brisket plate. PS Good value.

The potato salad was so full of vinegar it simply could not be eaten. have not been happy with Macs on earlier visits but thought... More

I ordered the two meat plate with pork ribs, jalapeno sausage, potato salad and green beans. I was given two wimpy looking pork ribs and a bunch of sausage. The tips of the ribs were dry and chewy. I felt like I was eating jerky instead of succulent ribs!! The potato salad had big chunks of sweet pickles-yuck! And the... More
