My first time meeting with a Spell caster and I have to say, it's really worth it. It had been 6months since my husband left me without saying anything. All thanks to Dr Tunde I was able to connect with my husband again with his powerful reunion love spell and now he loves me more than he used to. Eternally grateful with The Great Dr tunde I highly recommend, His contact details babatundesolutioncentre1@gmail.com or on his WhatsApp number +2348143581382 More...

Tried this place out while waiting on Karate to end next door. I ordered the Catfish sandwich (medium heat) and a side of collard greens. The girl taking my order was really sweet and the food came out pretty quickly, about 10 minutes. Now, it was a little expensive especially since there wasn't a combo option so I had to order everything a la carte but the food was definitely delicious and the potion was large. The fish was a bit greasy but it was fried extra crispy and well seasoned. The medium heat on the fish was spicy but not too hot, definitely a comfortable heat level. The collard greens were absolutely delicious too. Overall, I'm really glad I stepped in and tried it. I will definitely be back. More...

Delicious and affordable.  I could eat here every day (and I usually do).  My body loves the wholesome ingredients and the hearty flavor.  It's filling but lean so you don't have a heavy feeling after eating.  I always feel very satisfied after eating here. The owner is friendly and charming and can make your food to order.  I usually sub extra hash browns for the eggs. More...

Had their hottest spice level chicken tenders and they were great but wait time is a huge issue. Sometimes people just want to eat and don't care if it's 100% fresh all the time. I'll just know that next time coming that it's going to be a 20 minute wait even if it's not busy. Still gets a 5 star for food quality and service. More...

I was back in Smyrna for awhile around lunch time. We lived here for 20 years up until about a year and a half ago. I was "Yelping" looking for reviews of another new restaurant that had opened since we had moved and this one popped up. Me and hot chicken have had this illicit affair going on for a few years now. (I know, it should be hot chicken and I, but hey). Hot chicken is my first love (food that is). I've totally given up on Popeye's. Popeye's is to hot chicken what Chef-Boy-Ardee is to fine Italian dining. They are a "poser" in the hot chicken world. When someone mentions hot chicken, Popeye's just doesn't cross my mind. I saw the reviews for Mack's. The biggest drawback it seems is the wait times and the way the even handle call ahead orders. It seems there is a disconnect between the time the order is placed and the time it is SUPPOSED to be ready. But I am retired - I'm not having to get back to work. TIME - TIME - TIME - IS ON MY SIDE. YES IT IS! I'll wait a good bit for some good chicken. They cook it all fresh. If you are in a hurry, the tenders cook faster.Turns out it was about 20 minutes. Hot chicken places must have an agreement about how to price their food as they are all generally in the $8 - $9 price range for a breast quarter and a side. white bread and a few pickles. Mack's has 6 levels of heat. I dialed it back one level down from the hottest which is Mack's Revenge (why you mad bro?) to the Mack Attack. Again - crinkle cut fries - the bane of my potato existence! WHY! WHY! There is such a better option in fresh cut fries! But I order them anyway, because I need an excuse to use ketchup. I'm glad I didn't get the hottest level. To look at me you would have thought I had just finished a 5K instead of a 2 piece. Some ask, "How can you tell there is any flavor if your mouth is on fire?" Know, too that the level of heat is exacerbated by it being hot out of the fryer. Had I gotten it to go, it would have been 'easier' to eat at home. Regardless of the opinions of the uninitiated - the hot chicken haters - it had really good flavor - again exacerbated by the spices - that's my word of the week. I HAD to use it twice in one day - so I got it over with in this review. More...

I went here with my friends a few months ago and I decided to get the absolute hottest chicken they had and the first thing they say to me is "are you sure" so I knew I was about to eat the hottest piece of meat in the entire world and I really wasn't far off. It was really hot and I couldn't even taste the chicken because I was just focused on pure survival at this point. Next time I'm going to get the mild and see how it tastes. Maybe it'll bump up my review to a 5 star review. More...

Mmmmm, hot chicken that's worth the trip.  My family is hooked on the fried pickles and mac 'n cheese.  The sides are perfect with the generous chicken tenders.  There are several levels of heat but for us the hot is perfect.  It's definitely spicy but not so much that you will regret it later.  If you are looking for something different,  they also have Whiting and catfish sandwiches.   Go early on the weekends because that Whiting will sell out!  I have to tell you, it is yummy!If really good, well presented, reasonably priced food is what you want, Mack's has it.  The staff is friendly, the restaurant is cozy and clean.  My family has a new favorite.

We went in to support a family-owned/operated local business and we left customers for life. We love hot chicken, simple as that. As locals, we don't hesitate to drive 15-20 miles to "the competition" in Nashville when the craving hits but now, those visits will cease to a "if we're nearby, we'll go" because now, Smyrna has the best hot chicken without the drive for us BUT WORTH THE DRIVE FOR ANYONE OUTSIDE OF TOWN!Even the plain chicken tenders we got for our kindergartner turned out to be THE BEST fried chicken we/she had ever eaten. Crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside, fully flavorful, and their house-made ranch deserves its own separate review. It may be on the saltier side but it's delicious. We also wish they served beer but that's mere feedback.Mack's is legit and I highly recommend it!For the record: if anyone docks a made-to-order restaurant because "the wait was long" your millennial-influenced instant gratification conditioning has become more of a problem than you're aware. Work on that and appreciate what goes into made-from-scratch cooking while you practice patience for what's well worth the wait. More...

If you're craving hot chicken in Smyrna, this is the place to go. This is our guilty trip, from the tenders to the half chickens, it was hot crispy juice white/dark meat. One bite and you'll see why the wait is worth it. Mac and cheese were also good, homemade and cheesy. I keep hearing rave reviews about the fish, which i can't wait to try. I do have one advice, finish the meal with their homemade tea (more like a fruit tea, absolutely delicious) and cheesecake. More...

It's always made to order so be ready for that. I've been eating here since they were just the "Awesome little Hot Chicken food truck in Lavergne".

What a great place! We went here because their website mentioned they had gluton free options ... but not just one or two things . .. virtually their whole menu can be made gluton free. They even have a dedicated fryer for GF foods. They offer a variety of burgers and seafood that is out of this world! I had their fried scallops (which I have missed since going GF) and they were simply amazing! The portions are huge, which meant I had a second meal out of the leftovers. I also enjoyed their GF fried pickles. I didn't have room for any dessert or the GF onion rings ... guess I'll have to go back and give those a try.

This was so great! Everyone was very nice. We started with the fried pickles, which were crispy, right from the fryer. We both ordered the leg quarter at the medium spice level, which was plenty hot! If you like Frank's Red Hot, this is probably the spice level for you. The chicken was fall-off-the-bone tender, and very juicy. The collard greens were tender and smokey, and the cole slaw was nice and creamy which was great after that spicy chicken! Oh, and one order of the leg quarters is actually 2 whole leg quarters.

Stopped by for an early lunch.  Being there slightly after 11 AM, there was no wait.  That situation changed quickly as groups began to file in after me.  My food order was out in around 5 minutes.  The quality of the food was good.  I had chicken fingers medium.  The spice level was good.  Left my lips tingling for a while after eating.  I talked to others that got Mac Attack and one said it made his ears pop from the heat.  I had crinkle cut fries that were generously tossed with seasoned salt.  The breading on the chicken was not too thick and was good.  The only downside was that it may have been fried in oil that once had fish in it, not 100% sure, the heat masked it a little.  Overall, the visit was good.  The food was good.  Support your local small businesses, so these guys will want to stick around.
