This week the wife and I had a few hours to spend to our self. 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 anyways. 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 Macs Speed shop. I have heard good things before about Macs Speed Shop, so we decided to give it a try.
Like many restaurants that do well, they want to expand and open more.
Mac’s Speed Shop is a small franchise 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.
They also have some amazing looking burgers and what they call Sammie’s.
The food here is amazing! According to their web site they have won many Barbecue contest. They serve up a handful of appetizers, Salads, what they call Mexicue (BBQ crossed with Mexican food), BBQ pulled pork, and smoked chicken. 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 issues or complaint I had was the BBQ did have some fat and gristle in it. The smoke on it was just right, not to heavy and not too light. Very moist and tender. The smoked chicken wrap was to die for. I really loved their take on a traditional Cole Slaw dish. Had a little bit of heat, sweet, and vinegar all wrap into a rustic Cole Slaw. All in all, it was a well rounded meal that really 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.
