    Great meal and service. The jambalaya was very good. Nashville chicken sandwich and French fries were excellent. Music a little loud for our taste.

    The owner has created a warm and welcoming atmosphere. It is a place we hope to make a regular stop for some great tunes and good eats (and cocktails)!

    MacKenzie's offers great food, service and a wonderful staff. The music event was top notch with several of the best musicians in the DMV area....I'll definitely be back!

    I have been visiting this particular building for a number of years. When the plaza first opened it was an Asian fusion restaurant which we loved. They unfortunately closed up and a Taqueria opened. Very good food however, they didn’t make it through Covid as a lot of businesses. Wwe were so happy when it became Earps “pop-up”. Now that it is a McKenzies tunes and tonics, we love it even more. The place is comfortable. The people are friendly the food is excellent (and I am picky) and of course the tonics are quenching! I gave it a moderate noise level, because after all there are people performing. I believe you’ll come away with a smile on your face.

    McKenzies tunes and tonics which used to be Earps Ordinary pop up has continued the excellent atmosphere, food, engaging staff, and welcoming atmosphere. If you haven’t been, you should check it out. If you have then you know what I’m talking about.!

    Went early afternoon on a Sunday so didn’t have to wait or fight a crowd. Ordered from the starters/appetizer section of the menu and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food! The bang bang shrimp with green tea noodles were delicious and the hush puppy quesadilla was a pleasant surprise. Will definitely go back for more!

    Fantastic service by Carla, drinks by Max were amazing, and the food was delicious. Josh the owner stopped and said hi at every table. The music was so good we sat at the bar longer than intended and ordered an extra round. We will be back again soon!
