Stopped by on a cold January evening. Good parking around back. Patio out front for better days than this - right on the corner of the plaza, so you could watch people and traffic. Homey sports bar feel inside. The wait staff was a little distracted due to the great We’re Out of Tanqueray Crisis of 2008. 300 bottles, 100 taps - who could consider that anything but a great selection. Food is pretty good, nothing too fancy. I had the tortilla soup and a chicken sandwich and it was both filling and tasty - served up hot and promptly. They have a pint night on Thursday, so if anyone’s still lacking a few pint glasses...
Very good beer selection... the list does change from location to location.... so what you see on their website may not be at a particular location. My one huge complaint about Taco Mac, is that sometimes they don’t serve the beer in the proper glassware and it is always too cold (as they chill their glasses) anyways, if you can look past their lack of understanding, it is a great place to find a ton of beer on tap and in bottles.

Not a bad stop for some food and beer. The tap selection includes alot of swill but some interesting micros and imports as well. The bottle selection is fairly impressive. A large bar type atmosphere. I wouldnt go out of your way to go here but its worth checking out if you happen to be in Alpharetta.

Huge selection of bottled and tap beers. Typical american sports bar with a lot of screens showing any north american ball game. Recognitions for usual visitors on the walls. Worth the visit.
One of the smaller restaurants in the chain, but cleaner than some, and much better service than the average. Massive beer menu, with 90 on tap, some are rotated seasonally, and well over 200 in the bottle. They have a new menu since the last time I was in (some years ago), that is head and shoulders above the old one; still, it’s better quality standard bar fare. Moderate prices for the area, a great lunch place.
Your typical Taco Mac - plenty of seating, lots of taps, lots of TVs - including one freaking huge one the size of a movie screen - all tuned to sports stations. Service was not the most prompt I have experienced at a TM; however, when I did get served, the waitress was very helpful. Food, as usual, is darned good - maybe not gourmet, but still superior to most bar food. This place is worth a visit if you’re going to spend time in the Alpharetta area.
Just like every other Taco Mac, IMO, except that the selection of beer does change location-to-location. If you’re looking for a specific micro, it could be hit-or-miss, although they do have a large selection of macros and micros on tap and in the bottle. Great place to go to watch a game with friends if you’re not into drinking the macros at a typical sports bar. Food isn’t all that spectacular but I like having the option of wrapping up burgers in tortillas instead of in a typical bun. Service is pretty timely, but servers are not usually knowledgeable about the beers there, although some bartenders are, but again that’s a hit-or-miss. Worth checking out if you’re in the Alpharetta area.
