Sharing is caring!

This week the wife and I had a few hours to spend to ourselves. What do you do when you have a date night with your wife? You go look at houses right? Well, that is what we do anyway. We were looking for ideas to get our creative juices flowing for our upcoming house build. Somehow, we ended up in Matthews NC. We quickly searched for local restaurants and came across Mac Speed shop. I have heard good things before about Macs Speed Shop, so we decided to give it a try.

The History of Mac’s Speed Shop

Mac’s Speed Shop is a small chain of restaurants that got its start in Charlotte, NC. Like many restaurants that do well, they want to expand and open more. That is just what the owners of Mac’s Speed Shop did. The first Mac’s Speed Shop opened its doors in 2005 and currently, there are six locations throughout North Carolina and one located in Greenville, South Carolina.

The Food At Mac’s Speed Shop

They also have some amazing-looking burgers and what they call Sammie’s. I ordered the pulled pork plate and my wife ordered the smoked chicken wrap. Both were excellent. The only issue or complaint I had was the BBQ did have some fat and gristle in it.

The smoke on it was just right, not too heavy and not too light. Very moist and tender. The smoked chicken wrap was to die for. I loved their take on a traditional Cole Slaw dish. Had a little bit of heat, sweetness, and vinegar all wrapped into a rustic Cole Slaw. All in all, it was a well-rounded meal that pleased the palate.


In conclusion, make sure to watch our video from our visit to Mac’s Speed Shop in Matthews, North Carolina. There will be a link here and below. If you are ever in the area, stop in and give them a try. I am sure you will not regret it.
