I was visiting Charlotte to see a few buddies and asked one to take me to his favorite BBQ joint in town. First thing you notice are the waitresses! Not an unfit one in the place, I'm assuming that it's hiring requirement. Either way the women there are gorgeous and friendly. Now they had about 10 different brews on special/tap with what looked like at least 100 different bottles. They had a good representation of NC and regional breweries. The menu was BBQ heaven; all different styles. There was Memphis, NC, St. Louis, and TX. I had the Texas beef brisket with collards, and black eyed peas. I can still taste that good vinegar based sauce in my mouth. My buddies had pulled pork and St. Louis style baby backs. I tried a little of each and none dissapointed. I recommend this place to everyone!

Stopped here when in town for business. Stopped by here for the release of a special cask ale from Heavy Seas. The place was pretty raucous and loud when I went. Packed out, but I found a spot at the bar. A patio section sat out front and to the side. I didn't order any food this time as I had already eaten, but what everyone was eating around me looked good. I was here for the beer anyways. I was blown away by the selection at this place. They carried easily 100+ bottles of almost all-craft beer. Had about 10-12 bottles from Founders, including Devil Dancer, about 10 different Samuel Smiths, lots of Victory, Terrapin, Duck-Rabbit, Stone, Rogue, etc. They also had 27 taps with almost all good beer. Of course they had a couple average ones for the masses, but a great selection for the rest of us. Some Founders on tap as well as, Olde Hickory, Aviator, Catawba, etc. Great local representation. If I live around here, I would hit this place all the time. Will definitely be back when in town. Loved it.

Have been going to all the Mac's since they opened and this one is setting the standard. Wonderful beer selection. 27 taps and most of them are rotating. Most of the girls know the basics and the bartenders are awesome. Have had the opportunity to meet the managers and man they get it. Place has a sports bar/biker bar feel but is clean and always has good music on. Food is always great and they run food specials almost every day. Try the Cuban when they have it. IMO the half price pints on Monday is the best deal around. This place is one the top craft bars in town.

This is a relatively new place that seems to have a wanna be biker bar feel... It all seems a little put on and chain restaurant-ish. There is a patio that is quite large, unfortunately there is no real scenery to enjoy while sitting on the patio, but it is still quite enjoyable. The beer list is packed with terrific brews. Both on tap and in bottles. The tap list could stand to be a little more extensive, but what is on it is fairly impressive. The menu is about what you would expect from a BBQ joint. The pulled pork and the brisket were quite good. Not great, but very good.
Very good place to go for a few beers, but there is definately room for improvement
