We had 4 different meals - one salad, two different burgers and the ribs. Great quality and good portion sizes. Well worth a visit.

False advertisement...... the feast for 2????? Wrong...... A divine swine meal for 4 easily!!!!! There is no better value on this island than what you get in shear quantity and quality of moist tender meat....... FYI the outer bark on the ribs is simply delicious!...More

We got two excellent burgers. One of the best for my US trip. The brownie was below average, and is better ignored

We came here to grab a snack before headed next door to the Green Parrot. The BBQ was delicious, as were the sides. Huge portions. Friendly service. Highly recommended.

Charlie Mac's is the winner of the 2013 Key Plaza Memorial Day BBQ Cook Off and serves up the best island-flavored BBQ in Key West. Inspired by the sizzling pits of South Carolina, Charlie Mac’s is Pat Croce’s latest Mile Zero local hot spot. Tap into two dozen brews. Order up an icy cocktail. Kick back to live music. Enjoy the great vibes right next to the Green Parrot Bar. And get lively with the Southernmost Hurricane Club on game day at the new official Key West home of the University of Miami Hurricanes.
