A Charlotte-based barbecue joint is coming to Raleigh's Five Points neighborhood.

Driving the news: Mac's Speed Shop is opening in the former Lonerider taproom on Glenwood Avenue potentially later this year.

Details: Founded in 2005, Mac's Speed Shop made a name for itself in Charlotte's South End neighborhood before South End became a hot spot for apartments and offices.

  • The restaurant sells items like pulled pork and brisket and flaunts an aesthetic built around motorcycles.
  • Mac's has expanded to locations throughout the state, but this will be the restaurant's first Triangle location.

Zoom out: It's been a big year for Charlotte restaurants expanding to the Triangle, with Midwood Smokehouse and the Common Market also planting roots in the area.
