“Worst service ever”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

We are locals, and usually like this restaurant. The last two times we've been there it has sucked. After being seated right away, it took our server 10 min to take our drink order, while all the tables around us were being seated and their orders were being taken. When our waitress finally came she was short and it took forever to receive our drinks (without straws). We didn't see her any where for another 10min. Finally we saw her to flag her down to get straws and to order food. This continued the rest of the meal. The food was also just poor. We will not be going back.

“Great food and fun environment”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

It's been about 15 years since I last ate here and the place hasn't changed a bit! The menu was the same - actually had my favorite sandwich that I used to get when I lived in Boone. Lot's of fun memories came back to me during my visit. Absolutely love Macado's!

“Nice Brew and Food”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

Big City Jazz and a basket of fries (order as a side dish, as it usually comes with chips) and select your favorite brew. This is great bar food it is not a NY Deli but the staff is nicer, the food is good and affordable and the atmosphere is fun. When you finish grab yourself a cinnamon sensation and one more for breakfast the next day. If you are in Boone NC make this one of your stops.

“Average, but fresh”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

We went to Macado's for lunch a few days before New Years. Service was good, but the food was definitely average. I had a reuben, which came out with "soft" rye bread. Anyone who is used to a good Jewish Deli would turn up their nose at this offering. The Corn Beef was fresh, but it was not a traditional reuben. We also had the Beef Dip which was okay and the onion rings which were also passable. If you are not too particular about your deli sandwiches, you may like this place. In an area like Boone, I would expect and want better.

“Cinnamon Buns!”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

Do yourself a favor. Go to Macado's, grab yourself a pint and order one (or more) of their cinnamon buns. Those things are awesome! You will not be disappointed. The staff was friendly, we were happy.
