By applying mirror symmetry to D-branes in a Calabi-Yau geometry we shed light on a G_2 flop in M-theory relevant for large N dualities in N=1 supersymmetric gauge theories. Furthermore, we derive superpotential for M-theory on corresponding G_2 manifolds for all A-D-E cases. This provides an effective method for geometric engineering of N=1 gauge theories for which mirror symmetry gives exact information about vacuum geometry. We also find a number of interesting dual descriptions.
