50 taps with only a handfull of BMC, lots of bottles. Nice selection, bunch of locals, a few Belgians. I went on a Monday night, so it wasn’t crowded and the bartender was pretty attentive. Drafts were reasonably priced at $5-$8. There was one annoying guy at the bar downing pints of Guinness telling everyone how it was "so thick and heavy" and "it’s like drinking a meal". He was pretty amusing.

Ah, Suwano Mac. All Taco Mac locations essentially boil down to: booths, bar, ONE THOUSAND televisions. The food is pretty tasty, plentiful, and reasonably priced for bar grub. Typically, I go for their Turkey and Swiss Panini or Havana Cuban (until discontinued) or Smothered Kettle Chips (until discontinued). Okay, so, I guess it’s just the Turkey and Swiss Panini for me! 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 and knee-buckling (particularly with the shape of the economy). Now, I’d 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 for this particular location is acceptable, as it’s a stand alone building with it’s own parking lot wrapped around the joint. Overall, it doesn’t 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. This particular unit, regrettably, only has 50 beers available on-tap. According to the bartender, they’re limited due to some silly city ordinance. I cannot verify the veracity of that statement, but that certainly sounds like Bible Belt rules to me! So, with one beer-hand tied behind their back, the selection is somewhat bleak. Though, at the time of my visit, they had Victory Yakima IPA, Victory Wild Devil, Terrapin Dark Side, Duck Rabbit Baltic Porter, so, at least they’re not simply sticking to only Budmilloors fare. However, the Buford location is only one exit further and sports 100 beers on draught (plus the beer engine), if you’re in need of a few more choices.
