A group of us went for a few beers and a late lunch during a recent visit. Not a big fan of this type of place and I knew why the minute I walked in the door.

Yes-tons of worthy taps, but the cold, corporate feel of this place hit me immediatly. Zero personality and character. Think of a glorified Applebees with over a 100 taps and dozens of flat screen TVs. Food was the expected middle of the road crap (think Applebees again).

When I visit a new town, I'm looking for the comfortable, more homie neighborhood joints, that have more character. Chains like this large, squeeky clean place leave me cold.

Bleh, one and done for me!

Thankfully none of my buddies wanted to go back here as the week continued...

Upon entering you realize it's a glorified sports bar, nothing wrong with that but on game nights it gets quite crowded. The food, at least what I had, was so-so. I went for the wings and they were nothing special. This trip was a late lunch and there was a sparse crowd, the service was slow at best.

The beer selection is second to none in Charlotte. With rotating offerings and monthly specials. I opted for a stand-by beer that I had tried before since I was eating, Carolina Blonde. The selection, like I said, was incredible but all was pricey. Ranging from $3.75 a pint for domestic swill beer to over $9.00 a pint for some specialties. I found the prices to be a bit high.

All and all in Charlotte it's a nice stop. I will be back here again.

The beer selection is awesome and always changing, but the server knowledge is lacking and a little on the pricey side. They have a beer club. I tried Moo-Hoo for the first time here, I will never forget. I love the flights.

The food selection is a little "Bar-y", but they do have other alternatives like salads and such. This a good sports bar with tons of TV's for men to lose their mind on so consequently the place is packed on game nights.

It is South Charlotte, so the parking is a bit of a pain the arse. The parking deck is helpful.

Don't go for the food b/c its not very good. The buffalo chicken tacos are okay though. The layout is incredible though - awesome TV's EVERYWHERE. They have more beers on tap than anywhere I have been too - I need to start going there more to try them. They also have awesome tables where you can have multiple taps added and routed to the table for you to poor yourself. It monitors how much you poor and charges you based on the volumes. Great if you have a few beers you really know you like and want to mix up with a group.

I was never attracted to Taco Mac for the sports aspect, but the setup they have is pretty hard to beat! HD TV's everywhere you look, and they can easily change them all to whatever sport you like. This means that it can get pretty loud if you manage to wander in when an important sporting event is going on.. The thing that has always turned my car to Taco Mac is the beer selection. They have your normal swill on draft, but they also keep a constantly fluctuating selection of Imports and Crafts in both draft and bottle. This one has 140 drafts to choose from! The loyalty program they have set up is free to join, allows you to get 6 credits a day (both of which set it above any other program I know of), has a long list of great rewards, and never resets forcing you to always be looking for new beers to try. The food is all pretty solid, and has been going through noticeable quality increases over the last few years. Most of it is pretty standard pub fair, but there is also a more Mexican geared portion of the menu that pushes the selection past most other chains around. And then there are the baked version of their already famous wings that are damn near impossible to beat!

I hate to wade into the Taco Mac reviews, as it seems that most reviewers here have an agenda, pro or con (mostly con). Hopefully, this review will be helpful to those who have not yet been there. If I want a quiet session with good beer, then I know to go elsewhere. If I'm in the mood to watch sports and have good beer, there is nowhere else in town that compares to Taco Mac in that respect. If I'm just reviewing the food and beer, The experience is somewhere in between. I like their wings better than just about anywhere in town (not breaded and ordered extra crispy). If you like hot wings, go one notch above your expected heat level, as they are mild compared to their description. They also have a great Queso Poblano, but the presentation has varied widely from one visit to the next. Service is usually decent. I've only rarely had a server that didn't have a working knowledge of beer styles. I've had one experience with poor service and the culprit was very apologetic, so I can overlook that. While Duckworth's, Vintner's , Pizza Peel, & Revolution may win out for the percentage of top quality beers on tap, the sheer number of taps at this place guarantees that you will be able to drink as much as you should in one evening and not be searching for a good beer to have next. They tend to go way overboard on price if a beer is particularly sought out, and I don't like that aspect of Taco Mac (EG, $9.00 for a glass of draught Chimay White), but the food is reasonably priced and most beers are within range, but probably 25-50 cents above what you could pay elsewhere. So, if you're OK with a sports bar atmosphere, you should definitely check this place out. If you're looking for a quiet place to discuss the beer if front of you, go somewhere else (I'd go to Vintner's) and don't complain about Taco Mac's shortcomings.
