Cannot be beat and should consider a must eat if remotely near Frederick. Quality and quantity are outstanding! The half-rack of ribs was the size of a full-rack most anywhere else, and seasoned well. Falling off the bone good! Outstanding cornbread, and as it’s in...More

Stopped to look at the menu and decided on a bbq pork sandwich. WOW! It was one of the best I have eaten. The homemade sauce was outstanding and the coleslaw was tasty as well. It's a small store front across from Frederick Memorial Hospital...More

With all the good reviews, I had high hopes. Man was I disappointed! To be honest, I am very serious about my BBQ. I have several smokers and regularly make my own. I also travel around to taste award winning BBQ. I rate BBQ joints...More

Apparently this was recently opened, and we were excited to try it. First, skip the brisket nachos. Very poor quality chips, and very little brisket. The BBQ quesadilla was better, but also nothing special. My son had the ribs and they were dry (over-cooked and/or...More

We stopped by for lunch after seeing an ad on facebook. After seeing the address we wondered where could this place be, as we drive this street all the time. When we got close we saw the BBQ flags in a strip of residential housing...More

We bought a deal from our local radio station and decided to try Mackies out. The set up is a little odd, almost feels like you’re walking in to a house which is what I was converted from. Food was ok, not great... service was...More

Tried Mackies for the first time over the July 4th weekend and it was great! Instead of cooking for the family get together we ordered a selection of meats and sides from here and everything was delicious. So many compliments from all - they sure...More

Saw a review in the News-Post newspaper in Frederick MD,so we were curious. Stopped for lunch. The beef brisket sandwich was a good potion but chopped not slices and the roll was a little dry. The chicken salad sandwich had tasty chicken but no extras...More

When I saw a restaurant go into this location, I thought that was poor planning on their part. Turns out it was a stupid assumption on my part. Their food is fabulous!! Our favorites are the brisket & the crab cake. Besides getting their take-out,...More

As a native Texan, I'm pretty brutal on judging BBQ. That said, it's not exactly fair to compare Maryland BBQ to that in Texas. Mackie's would be easy to pass if not for the large BBQ sign in the front yard. If street parking is...More
