So the much anticipated Taco Mac is finally open in Charlotte. I have heard so much (good and bad) about this chain, so I decided to find out for myself.

The place has a typical chain restaurant, sports bar appeal. Lots of TV's, if there is a game on you should be able to find it on one of the TV's. When you first approach the place you see all of the outdoor seating, which is nice if you are not interested in the sports bar scene inside. Once you walk in you see that the place is huge. Tons of seating, some of the tables have taps at the table. There is also an upstairs seating area. The place is very chain restaurant esque.

The service was slow and not overly friendly. I don't know if the place was understaffed when I was there or if they are still getting used to thier jobs as the place has only been open for a couple of weeks.

The menu was OK, nothing special, but not bad either. Reminds me of a Ruby Tuesday or TGI Fridays. I ordered a burger and fries, and had no complaints. The beer menu us huge (140 taps), an awful lot of those taps are devoted to Macro. Really there were only a couple of taps that I was really impressed with.

This place was not bad, but I think Duckworths is still the best beer destination in Charlotte.

I've got to say - I'm not a big fan of Taco Mac. They have a massive amount of taps, but it's more a sports bar than a great place to enjoy a good beer. It's a great place to watch a game and enjoy a brew - but the beers are too expensive and the food (what I've had at least) was pretty average. There are far better beer experiences to be had in Charlotte.

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!
