Charlie Mac's is the winner of the 2013 Key Plaza Memorial Day BBQ Cook Off and serves up the best island-flavored BBQ in Key West. Inspired by the sizzling pits of South Carolina, Charlie Mac’s is Pat Croce’s latest Mile Zero local hot spot. Tap into two dozen brews. Order up an icy cocktail. Kick back to live music. Enjoy the great vibes right next to the Green Parrot Bar. And get lively with the Southernmost Hurricane Club on game day at the new official Key West home of the University of Miami Hurricanes.
