Mac's burgers and fries are the best. This is a big favorite with locals, and a place we like to take visitors. The service is fabulous. Pam knows everyone who is a frequent customer and remembers their usual orders.

Like like local, quirkey. This fits, Food is fine, no problem. Lady running operation was not nice to me. They have small seating area, It was filled, I saw that and I ate quickly; Then I was was asked to leave BEFORE others who came in after me. I won't be back.

Glad you enjoyed your food! This review seems fradualant to us. I can count on one hand how many tables we have had to ask a to leave ONLY after they were finished eating due to crowdedness. We have had plenty of seating all season long due to the beautiful weather we have had this summer. Not sure what your... More

This little spot didn't try to get fancy or too big. It's a small spot that concentrates on 2 main items - burgers and philly cheesesteaks and they're mouthwatering and delicious. Sometimes, it's best to keep it simple.

I love this place. Excellent juicy, generous burgers cooked to perfection. Quality fresh beef, hand-formed each day. No hard frozen stuff here. Custom bun holds all the fixin’s. Best I’ve eaten in years. Hand cut fries cooked in peanut oil. Small shop near Visitors Center in Black Mountain, but open only for lunch 11 am – about 3 pm. Service... More

Popular place among locals. Chicken or beef cheesesteaks and cheeseburgers - all pretty good. Service is quick and friendly. Some outdoor eating. Be aware they close at 2:45 SHARP! Open Tuesday through Saturday.

This hidden gem is a fine place to stop and get a very good burger, Philly steak, or chicken salad sandwich. The fries are hand cut and spot on also. Seating is limited, but on a beautiful fall day the outside seating is also wonderful. They have limited hours sou lunch is the only time to get to enjoy the... More

What more could you want in a lunch place? Great service, great food, fast in and out. Amazing burgers, and great hot dogs too.

First visit, but will not be my last. Fabulous chicken salad with farm fresh tomatoes and fresh crisp lettuce for me and one of my friends. Another friend had a cheese burger with fries. It was superb. Great service, friendly staff. Dining available inside or out. Clean. Will be stopping more often.

Everyone loves a great, old-fashioned burger and Mac's delivers. On a pretty day be sure to eat outside and enjoy the lovely weather.
