Mac's on Main

This is where April and I went to celebrate April's sister's birthday. Sarah H. Boatwright is holding up the ribs. Mac's on Main is known for their live jazz and blues as well as Chef Fatback's cooking. Mac’s on Main was a gem to find in downtown Columbia, SC. A great soul food kitchen and catering place where the head chef and owner makes frequent appearances in the dining room to chat with guests and promote his funk band, “Fatback and the Groove Band.” The pulled pork is well cooked and mixed with a spicy sauce. It is more tomato than mustard base despite its Columbia origin. The pork was tasty, but did not have a real smoky flavor. The sauce was OK, but as you know by now, I am not a fan of having the pork and sauce mixed ahead of time. The macaroni and cheese and collard greens were excellent. The cornbread is also exceptional. The highlight of this restaurant is the homemade cobblers for dessert. They are so good that they are sold in local grocery stores in large aluminum pans for at home enjoyment. The ambiance and central location of this restaurant are also a big plus. Most evenings include live music and the wall of fame is an impressive mix of great gospel singers and other celebrities.
