Interior is typical for a Taco Mac, long bar, plenty of booths and tables, lighting kept low, a bunch of TVs tuned to sports stations. Beer selection, as usual, is formidable, emphasizing craft brews, though they have some industrial slop to appease the die-hards. Service is efficient, friendly, and welcoming. Food is Taco Mac typical, as in a cut above most bar food. Maybe two cuts above. If you live in northwest Metro Atlanta, this is a must.

Great locally owned small chain of sports and craftbeer bars. Iíve been to several but freqent this one as itís near the mall and a family memberís house. Ths one is a bit newer and bigger than some of the others. Obviously there are Atlanta area beer bars with better atmosphere or food...but you come here for the huge selection and to enjoy a sports bar and pretty much a family restaurant in the earlier hours. This place reminds me a bit of the west cost chain called Yards but without the corporate feel. This is definitely a great place to experiment with drafts and bottles.

Went to dinner with my Girlfriend and her little sister, claimed a 100 things on tap, almost all craft including some nice things... Nogne Imperial Stout... Left Hand Fade To Black... Dinner was nice, but a tip, if you make shrimp tacos, take the tails off before cooking them. Other than that the food was good, TVís were everywhere, and I wish they expanded into Tallahassee.

I was passing through and stopped for lunch. I would have to say ChainGangGuy pretty much nailed this one with his review. Great selection of drafts and bottles at fair prices. Sat at the bar and they were as knowledgeable as it gets at a bar. Decent food.

Ah, Chastaino Mac. One of the newer Taco Mac locations, the inner decor is a distinct cut above the older joints, but it still essentially boils down to: booths, bar, ONE THOUSAND televisions. Plus, this particular locale has a decent-sized patio, if thatís your thing, but being a BIG FAN of air conditioning, youíll usually find me hunkered down at the bar. The food is pretty tasty, plentiful, and reasonably priced for bar grub. Typically, I go for their Turkey and Swiss Panini or Havana Cuban. The service, as is true for any bar, ranges from adequate to proficient. This is another reason for sitting at the bar, as it expedites the bar-getting process, plus the bar staff is usually a bit more knowledgeable, beerwise, as they spend their shifts stationed right next to the taps and coolers. I find their draft prices to be wholly acceptable and cannot remember a single time I balked at the bill, though their prices on large-sized, imported bottled beer can be a bit high. Now, Iíd wager their bread and butter is the sale of macros, the Budmilloors stuff, and in catering to that particular crowd they serve their beers in extremely frozen glasses, so be sure to ask the staff for a non-chilled glass. The parking situation, while no fault of the establishment, can be a bit tight and awkward at this venue, as, in my opinion, there just arenít quite enough parking spots to fully serve the shopping area this Taco Mac is located in, so keep that in mind. Overall, it doesnít display the grace, finesse, and the rich experience that a trip to the Brick Store Pub can provide, but, for those of us facing long drives to Decatur, a Taco Mac, with their many locations, will do in a pinch (especially as this Taco Mac is 0.9 miles from my place).
