After a trip to Trader Joe's we were split on whether to seek a pint at the Taco Mac or grab som ice cream at Bruster's I chose the 100 tap selection, where I got a taste of the Terrapin India Brown and the Rye Squared. I found an open seat at the bar and started scanning that selection after ordering that Rye Squared, and man what a nice mix of brews thoroughly impressed bartender was busy pouring drafts not much small talk but the pint was kept full during my little session at the Roswell Taco Mac. Much more spacious bar area than the other Woodstock location that we had visited for lunch earlier that day, it's amazing that this is located right up the street from the other Taco Mac. I don't know I can see why this place could get a bad wrap from the beergeek considered their habit of serving fine micro drafts in those damn frosted glasses, but the bottle selection seems massive and the taps are a plenty something for everybody it's pretty daunting to see that many taps, and overall I am thankful that somebody has this as an option rather than the Applebee's where draft beer selection is usually consumed by the big three. Didn't have the opportunity to eat anything during this stop it was more the fact that I was looking for some of the Terrapin high gravity brews than anything else so I accomplished that goal. I still continue to question how they are able to rotate this amount of bottles and taps but either way it's a sight to see, I'm glad Georgia was able to establish this after the abv change in the last couple years it shows promise for somebody residing in West Virginia.

The atmosphere at this location is quite cramped and stuffy at the bar area. A lot of older folks standing around the bar behind/beside/around your chair while you try to sit and drink. I really dont like that.

I have not had a bad beer from here, but I cannot stand the damn frozen glasses. The barkeeps are on auto-program to bring you your beer in a frozen glass which is a TOTAL pet-peeve of mine. I usually always remember to explain I dont want one, but when I forget, it sucks.

The service is the same as any other TM location around the area; average at best. They let you go dry and will let you sit there for sometime usually before asking if you want another beer. I hate that, but I usually tip accordingly.

Decent draft selection (100 handles I think) and OK selection of bottles. A lot of the folks there are older and swill drinkers, so I do worry about getting a bad beer now and again, but it hasn't happened yet.

The food is OK; your typical Tex-Mex. I like the new fish tacos that are on the menu and the queso dip.

Not a bad stop, but not the best stop in the Atlanta area either. For a pint after work, it will do.

One of my normal hangouts, I've been visiting this locale for years. Yes, it is a sports bar, but it's not your regular ratty dive. The place is clean and open, usually busy, and the beer selection and Passport Club opportunities are a big plus. Family friendly as well, I have no problem bringing younger people into this establishment. The food is excellent, though a titch pricey like everything else here, but for a neighbourhood type location it's worth it. There's a large open bar, booths around the walls of the main room, with a long side room with stools and high tables. Staff is fairly knowledgable, and I've seen many of them eating or hanging out there on their day off.

This is your typical sports bar with an atypical selection would be the best way to describe it. A great place to watch a game, it is loaded down with big screen televisions and lots of good fast food. The selection is better then you would expect to find in your average sports place, a few from Rogue and Great Divide, Terrapin, Sweetwater, not half bad. The food was very good, again wings and such, but still good. Overall I would say this is a great place to watch the game, but as far as driving here with the sole reason being to get something good, I would go elsewhere, but still a pretty good place for what it is.

Went by this place last weekend to watch a football game.

Part of a huge shopping center in Roswell. Doesn't exactly give that tucked away feeling.

Atmosphere was like a sports bar, of course. Neon signs, local sports team signs, and big screen TV's are all over the place.

Service is pretty good. Brought beer quickly.

Selection was pretty good for a local bar. They did have St. Bernardus 12, which surprised me, since this is a sports bar. But, they only serve beer in chilled pint glasses.

Overall, a decent place. I would go back to watch another game.

First visit to a Taco Mac. There are several in the Atlanta area, but this one is a few minutes from where I live. It's located in an open shopping area that seems to be expanding right now.

The beer selection is above average, with some of the taps being many widely known brands such as Sam Adams. They do have some local choices such as Terrapin and Sweet Water. Your options are bottle (every beer), draught (most beers), and pitcher size (some beers). The choice of "extreme" beers is somewhat low. Most of them are under the "Strong Ale" section which only have five beers listed, and when I ordered one, they were out of it.

The bar is loaded with HDTVs, a couple of them are projection style. The rest are LCD. They seem to have a cable service sports package, so you have your options for games. There are booths along the wall where the projection screens are, so if you want to view them you should make sure you're sitting closer to the bar.

The format has several tables and booths, as well as a bar area which has several TVs. The food is mostly bar/pub food, nothing special. They chill the glasses, but this can easily be fixed by allowing the beer to warm a little.
