COLUMBIA, SC — Macs on Main will close its restaurant at 1710 Main St. after 15 years in business, but executive chef Barry “Fatback” Walker said his signature cobblers still will be sold in Piggly Wiggly grocery stores and other restaurants. Walker also will continue his catering business.
The restaurant is being sold and on Oct. 1 will become a CW’s Grill, a barbecue restaurant with a location on Clemson Road. The new restaurant will continue to serve lunch and dinner and have music in the evenings, he said, as it caters to the lunchtime business crowd and the growing number of students who will be moving to a new student housing project on Main Street.
Walker said he wanted to focus his efforts on his cobbler business, getting his line of seven flavors “in every freezer between South Carolina and Maine.” He plans to pursue accounts with other retailers.
