And be sure to check out the daily drink specials! On Tuesdays, get $2 off draft beers and kids meals for $2.49 with the purchase of an adult entree; and on Wednesdays, enjoy $11 PBR buckets and $5 Jameson shots.

Mac’s makes all its food in-house daily, including its sauces and dressings. Of course, hickory-smoked barbecue is the name of the game here. You can’t go wrong with the signature pulled pork, chicken on the bone, beef brisket, St. Louis pork ribs, or sliced turkey—all served with your choice of two sides, Texas toast, and house pickles. Those sides are equally as delicious: Choose from mac and cheese, fried okra, tater tots, dirty rice, BBQ beans, broccoli salad, and more.

Elevated bar food favorites also grace the menu. Think starters like nachos, fried pickles, and pimento cheese; salads; wings, burgers and handhelds; and tacos. You also can’t beat the $10 Speed Lunch options!

Bikes (and More)

Despite its bike-centric MO, all are welcome at this come-as-you-are casual sup and sip spot, whether you drive a minivan, truck, or anything in between. Pop a squat at the bar to throw back your favorite bev while catching a game on one of the TVs, grab a table with your crew, or sit out in the sun to get some vitamin D. And don’t miss live music on the weekends!
