Taco Mac Metropolis...an odd place in Midtown with a great beer selection, but not much more.

The atmosphere here is very unimpressive. I feel like I'm in some sort of a mix between a diner, a sports bar, and a night club. I really dislike it.

The beers are generally served in incorrect glassware (unless standard pint glass is appropriate), but the beers here are generally fresh (though I haven't really tried my luck with many bottled/canned IPAs - a true test for me).

The service here is not bad for a restaurant, but not good for a beer bar. The bartenders generally have some beer knowledge, but the servers generally have very little.

The beer selection is pretty decent. They have A LOT of beer, but much of it is mediocre/standard. I have a hard time picking out beers here because I've generally had everything. For a sports bar, the selection is very good, though.

I actually find the food quite decent at Taco Mac. It's not the interesting, well crafted dishes of Brick Store, but it's good for chain bar food.

The prices are actually quite high. Some drafts can go for nearly $10, which you will not see at the other craft beer bars in Atlanta.

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.
