We were headed downtown on a Sunday night, looking for a fun pub experience. We found it at Mac’s Place. We got there early and snagged one of the booths. A few draft beverages were sampled; the draft menu is not extensive, but the drafts were well poured and there were a few local brews on tap.
We started with a couple of appetizers: mac ‘n chese bites and fried pickles. The breading was spiced with black and cayenne pepper, and was appropriately zesty. The mac ‘n cheese was classic (a la velveta mac ‘n cheese) – cheesy, hot, and yummy. And if you like fried pickles, try the ones at Mac’s Place.
Another good thing to try would be the BBQ brisket on Texas toast. The meat is actually smoked (you can see the smoke ring) and rivals some places that just do BBQ. The sauce reminded us of Sweet Baby Ray’s (KC style), which isn’t a bad thing. The sweet potato tots with cinnamon butter are great, too.
Next time we want to try their fish and chips (another item our waitress recommended). And there will definitely be a next time!
