Nelson County, Virginia
This comes as no surprise to those of us living in the shadows of Mac Country Store in Roseland near the intersection of Route 151 and Crabtree Falls Highway. For years they’ve been serving up delicious fried chicken! The best around. Since current owner Betty Brown took it over several years ago, some top notch potato salad and pimento cheese have entered the picture too. Mac’s has been a long time advertiser in the pages of BRL, touting their yummy fried chicken.
Recently, a national writer by the name of Hawk Krall remembered stopping at Mac’s over ten years ago, and remembered the chicken. Years later he finally found the place again. Paydirt! Hawk recently wrote about revisiting Mac’s in the article below for Saveur Magazine. It’s a very nice writeup. Check it out!
Above, back in May 2009 in our original charter magazine, Nelson County Life, we looked at the history of Mac’s and when Betty took it over.
Congrats to everyone at Mac’s 🙂
