This was my last stop during a recent business trip to Atlanta. Shoud have been my first. Nice rustic look but a few too many high school kids hanging out for my taste.
The selection was incredible compared to what I'm used to. 200+ bottles and over 100 on tap. Too bad I was driving or it would have been a much longer evening.
Being a Buffalo native I was kind of skeptical about their "famous" chicken wings...boy was I wrong. I tried an order of three mile island and they were some of the best I've ever eaten. This will be my first stop next time I'm in Atlanta.

Sports bar featuring an array of television sets showing whatever the game, match, race de jour (and the occasional "WOO!" and "GO [insert team or player name]!!").
Beer selection is above average, but, in terms of the overall Taco Mac franchise, is under par. With only 50 draft selections, it can be difficult to find anything beyond the standard, basic macro beers. Why not make the 7.0 distance to the Kennesaw locale, which is, IMHO, a better Taco Mac.
The food isn't phenomenal, but it's serviceable and does its duty of soaking up copiously consumed alcohol. It's a wing joint, so what do you expect? I usually get the Smoked Turkey & Swiss Panini, but that's just me.
CGG Fun Fact: CGG and friends enjoyed a beer and some greasy grub here on September 11, 2001 -- they were determined to not let the terrorists 'win'.

I've been to this Taco Mac three or four times now
It looks like a typical Taco Mac. Its a sports bar. I've watched a couple GA Tech games here, always fun.
This Taco Mac is better than most in that the beer selection is both good and fresh. I've never had a problem with draft beer here, though admittedly they have a smaller selection than others. The bottle selection is very good! Lots of great stuff both domestic and European on the menu.
The service is hit or miss, and can really range from poor when a big game is on to great in the slower times. This is the only Taco Mac I've been to where they not only gave me a glass, but a correct one. However, I've had to wait nearly 20 mins for a beer before, so be prepared for a possible let down on occasion (know whats going on to know what to expect)
The food is ok. It's Taco Mac. I've never loved anything I've eaten at Taco Mac. I hate the wings but I am admittedly pickier towards wings than I am beer.
All together, this Taco Mac is an above average place to have a beer, and a star in the chain. I just wish this was my local TM.

Your pretty much average Taco Mac location I stopped in here on my way through, more or less to see how many of these I could actually hit in the course of a day in town. This one was setup similar to most with lots of TVs for the game and about 50 or so taps with about double that amount in bottles. Most of the local stuff and regionals with a good amount of imports mixed in. Sad to see that there are still macros around in here, but they have to do what they have to do. Everything seemed fresh and the place was fairly full even for a weekday afternoon. Not a bad stop but they are all pretty much the same.

Taco Mac was my local for several years. The wife and I always enjoyed coming here for good tex-mex and draft beer. If we came on Friday or Saturday night, we would have to wait, which is why we usually came on Thursday. I really miss this place now, having moved down to Savannah, on the coast. The lure of 50 tap handles dances in my dreams now. They were always adventurous on their selection of beers. The little lady and I always had a good basket of hot wings or tacos and a pitcher of Rogue Dead Guy Ale or Sweetwater Exodus Porter. There is much less of a variety to choose from down here off the coast.

Just down the road from me on Dallas Highway. That makes me happy. Atmosphere is like alot of casual restaurant/pubs in suburban Atlanta. Lots of TV's, lots of wood and cute waitresses. Good place to go see a game I'll bet. Anyway, took my family there one Sunday for lunch and it doubles nicely as a good beer bar/family-friendly restaurant. Lots fo beers on draft but alot of crap on tap. Too much macro variations (i.e. Bud, Bud Light, Coors Coors Light, Miller, Miller Light) but I would say at least 25 solid beers on tap. (Sweetwater, Dogwood, Sam Adams and Rogue varieties). Bottles are much better, much more varieties. Lindemans, Rogue, Sierra Nevada, and locals. Hopefully more to come soon now that the cap has been popped. I had a couple pints of Sweetwater IPA that were really tasty, stood up well to my Three Mile Island hot wings. They also offer mixed beers, mostly with Guinness. There is the usual Black and Tan, Snakebite and Half and Half but also interesting combinations like Black and Blue, Guinness and Sweetwater Blue. My wife loved that one. Food was really good, not the best wings I've ever had but above average to be sure. Service was prompt and friendly. I'm not sure if they knew their beer but they seemed used to people ordering outside of the norm. I recommend it for a laidback good time.

This used to be one of my favorite places to get a beer and some wings, but I have since moved. They have a decent selection on tap, with a better selection in the bottle. They have numerous locations in Atlanta, my favorite being in Virginia Highlands. The food is great and the only problem is bad service every so often, not bad but just things like beers being brought without pint glasses and then funny looks when we ask.
