Restaurant Review: McKenzie’s Barbeque

If you are a barbeque lover and live in Huntsville, chances are you’ve probably heard about McKenzie’s Barbeque, located on 11th street. College students could invest their money towards many local restaurants in Huntsville, but would be unsuccessful at finding a better deal compared to McKenzie’s Barbeque, especially on Thursdays.

Customers can enjoy their meals in a family friendly atmosphere and expect the noise level to be practical.

One of the preferred dishes a customer should try at McKenzie’s is their sausage. The sausage not only complements the vinegar based barbeque sauce perfectly, but comes out fresh and warm. After trying McKenzie’s barbeque sauce, it makes sense why they are famous around town for it.

The condiments such as toppings, sauces, and beans were easily accessible in the middle of the restaurant. The disadvantage to the central, open condiment area were flies, a few seem to always be hovering around the area.

Even though the surroundings were mildly unsettling, the employees offered excellent service. The employee’s faces greeted customers with a great attitude. They explained the meal selections to first-time customers and recommended options to benefit the customers purchasing expenses.

The quality of their food is reasonable for McKenzie’s prices, and the experience wasn’t necessarily subpar. For a little extra value, every Thursday customers can buy a two meat plate with a drink for around nine dollars.

There are a few improvements that could be made to make the McKenzie’s Barbeque experience a tad better. The preparing of the food is one. Customers who decide to come from 7 p.m. to closing time, on multiple occasions, the food came out colder than usual when visited later in the night. Another improvement would be the cleanness of the restaurant. Customers can also anticipate the environment to be dirtier towards closing time. There were pieces of food and trash scattered throughout the floor.

In the end, as a barbeque lover, I give McKenzie’s a total of a three point five stars out of five for the overall experience.

The only personal recommendations to give customers who want to eat McKenzie’s is to arrive there any time before 7 p.m. to receive a better overall experience, both with the food and service. Customers should receive the same treatment and quality of food throughout the day weather it is in the morning, midday, or evening.
