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.

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.

I have been to many different Taco Macs throughout the Atlanta area. I will say this is the first one that I have had absolutely no desire to go back to. Our waiter was an absolute moron, and the service was extremely slow. Myself and my party waited about 10 minutes for each beer that we ordered (3) when the place was nearly empty. One of my beers came to me wrong, warm and awful. At the end of my time in this hell hole, we asked for our checks to be split, they came to us in pairs, with orders STILL on the wrong ticket. On top of this, I had to ASK for my brewniversity card back and he couldn't tell us which one it was. So a member of my party had to tell him how to do his job and find out which card was mine (no my name wasn't on it, but I have never had a problem with it before.) Throughout this process the waiter didn't say sorry for the wait or anything to try and make our experience any better.

Thank you "Taco Mac Metropolis," you have made me never come back to your store. I will spend my hard earned dollar elsewhere.

I absolutely love Taco Mac. I usually go to the one in Kennesaw, and finally got a chance to go to the one in Midtown after a Braves game one night. The selection of beer is great, with no shortage of beers to try. the food is also quite delicious. I also love the atmosphere of a sports bar, as I love being able to watch multiple games at one time of different sports. I would suggest going to Taco Mac to anyone who enjoys good beer and enjoys trying new beers, as well as those who just enjoy sitting at the bar talking sports with friends and or random strangers over a beer.
