had them before and they were good, but I didn't think they were the best I've ever had.

The sampler plate is in the pic above. Their brisket is really good. I think the BBQ is mediocre.

I tried to tell them that there is better que around here than Mac's. Everything else at Mac's is OK. I love the beer selection and the pickles though.

boo introduced me to Mac's and I go there every time I'm in CLT.

Anybody been to City Smoke downtown? My buddy's brother owns that and it's really good too.

I normally just order the pulled pork, cheddar grits, and collards. However, my in-laws were with me and they ordered the meat sampler so I tried a little of everything. I think I even tried those burnt ends you were talking about one time. It was all good. Mac's does a good job.

Funny story. My in-laws decided to move down here from Michigan and the deciding factor was dining at Mac's. They're skinny people too, so to see food influence a life decision was quite entertaining for me.

That was pry the brisket....the beef rib is a giant fred flintstone monstrosity

Brisket is good, so are the ribs...but their fried pickles are meh....chips bleh.

The one in Cornelius, I seem to always be the first to tap their new beer of the day/week. I have 3 glasses from the breweries they give you for being the first guinea pig.

I use the SC mustard sauce............on my fries. I feel sorry for it, and this coming from a SC heathen.

My wife has made me a mustard sauce acceptor...not a convert but I accept it's role in the sauce paradigm and use it occasionally

I enjoy all the sauces quite frankly. I am not a sauce snob.
