Taco Mac is a good stop for most anyone that likes beer. They have decent (not impressive) food and a rather large selection of beer, however the beer snob might be a bit disappointed. A portion of their offerings are mediocre, but they definitely have some high quality brews for the more selective types - just don't expect to find anything too exotic/rare.

The wait staff are what you'd expect from an average sports bar, that is rather slow and not so beer-savvy (and prone to making numerous errors in terms of giving you the wrong beer/glassware or not even giving you a glass with your $8 beer), but friendly nonetheless. For a beer snob, a good place to go if you're with a group of people who aren't as snobby or just want to have a couple drinks, but not the best place to expand your horizons or talk about beer with the staff (or other patrons) from what I could tell.

As always in TacoMac ...really broad selection in both Draft and bottle, a bit hard to get parking in this area, but that is the nature of the beast.
The wings are good, burgers are ok as well, know that you wont get fancy food like some of hte other restaurants in the area, and another great positive they close their kitchen really late and it has saved me several times while on business trips.
The service in this location its rather bad, slow and they can defenitely do a better job on this, but on the bright side, the beer, not much to add other than their beer selection is really great , they have a bit of everything and anything you might think, they might not have super rare beers but they manage to have almost one or two of most beer styles, a good amount of local brews, always some founders, great divide, green flash, etc. as well as some international options.

The wife and I were going to Empire State South (a fine restaurant!) and guess what, there is a massive Taco Mac right across the street! My first Taco ever... Inside it looks like any suburban chain restaurant, but the long, serpent-like bar is plenty cool.

140 taps! Great Divide Yeti, Dragon's Milk, Trobadour, Boulevard Nommo and Tank, Green Flash Friendship and a bunch of local/regional brews (French Broad, Duck Rabbit, Red Brick, O'Dempseys, Red Hare).

The place was empty on a weekday at lunchtime during Christmas, but the bartender looked hurried and overwhelmed, and it takes time to get a beer. Here I learned that service is the Achilles' heel of all Taco Mac locations!

The ambience is blah and bland, the food is mediocre but goes well with beer (queso and salsa).

Come for the beer only! The selection is damn good indeed.
