Normally, I am not one for restaurant reviews. I can’t articulate into words how good or bad food is. I am no super taster. I pretty much describe food as epic, good, creamy, cakey, fresh, salty or downright awful. However, there is one restaurant in good ol Blacksburg that has a very special place in my heart.
This small chain is spread throughout the south, mainly Virginia and North Carolina. They make pretty much the BEST sandwiches in all the land. That is saying much because I do love my sandwiches. I was introduced to this place my Freshman year of college on my 18th birthday. Since then it has been a place where my roommate and I go to drown our sorrows because the Biochem test kicked our butt or for celebration.
It only made sense that my last “free” night in Blacksburg involved Macados with my best friend :)
We always, and I mean always, get the Spinach and Artichoke Dip! It is rich, creamy fully of spinach, cream cheese and artichokes. I mean I legit get a whole artichoke – how can you not like that? It is served with these really doughy pita chips that are out of this world good.
I’ve tried a lot of the sandwiches/create your own combos throughout my four years, but I keep coming back to this combo: Whole wheat bread, mesquite turkey, muenster cheese, bacon, avocado, lettuce and tomato. Simple, but awesome. They used to have this epic flatbread but they no longer serve it. Rude.
Thick. Doughy. Delicious whole wheat bread :) With a side of honey mustard & BBQ sauce because they don’t charge you anymore! Win.
And for the main event…the Madison Mud Pie <3
Served up in a schooner glass: Warm brownie, cookie dough ice cream, Oreo pieces, whip cream, hot fudge and cherry. It is the most amazing thing on this planet. I don’t really need to describe how decadent and chocolatey this creation is because I think the picture does it justice.
There you have it – our “routine” when we go to Macados because there is just no other place I’d rather go. I’ve shared some awesome and not so awesome moments there. If you are ever near a Macados I highly suggest you going!
