Recently used Bo-Macks for my contribution to a potluck and their cooking was among the most popular items. Great cornbread, barbecued pork and chicken. Order was ready when I arrived - friendly service

Best old-fashion skinny wiggly fries in the world!! Bbq is excellent, and cornbread and honey butter are to die for. The staff used to sing, but I don't know if they do that anymore.

Hey Cheryl, Thank you for your feedback, however, we do not have fries anymore. We still do the cornbread and honey butter and BBQ Brisket, Pulled Pork, Chicken, Sausage and Ribs. We used to have those fries at the other Restaurant on 1st Street. Thank you again for stopping by 315 S. Lyon St., Albany. Hope to see you soon~Momma... More

Bomax catered our Christmas party. They always do a phenomenal job. The people are incredibly warm and friendly and the food was a plus. I would recommend them to anybody that wants a good catered barbecue for friends and family.

Hey John, We are so glad you gave us a try, however, we would love to know what you think we could do differently. We have been in business for over 9 yrs. and have done a lot of catering and serving customers. Most of the time they love our products and feel like we do a very good job... More

Bo-Mack's has awesome food. We love the pulled pork, brisket and the macaroni and cheese. We really miss the full service restaurant. They have limited seating but it just is not the same. If you want great BBQ come here and get your full.

Keep in mind this is a really small restaurant, they specialize in take-out and catering. We ordered a Wagon Wheel at 3pm on Saturday, they were already out of chicken and pull pork. We were told at the time of ordering and they made up for it with more of the other meats. But we were trying sample each of... More

Same great food, same warm and friendly service. I went in around noon and the inside seating was close to full. I would anticipate taking the order out and look at it as a bonus if you get a seat inside during lunch hours. Off hours I am guessing there are plenty of seats. I thought that parking would be...

If you like hot BBQ, kind of messy and a lot of it, this is the place for you. It was just a bit over the top for me, but if you are feeding hungery men they might like it. Kind of a downhome 1960's feel.
