While in Atlanta, one of my coworkers recommended going to a local chain with a large beer selection – Taco Mac. One evening, a couple of us popped out to enjoy a brew from their extensive beer selection, and give the food a try, too.
After arriving, I was shocked at how extensive the draught beer selection was.
I was impressed with the beer menu.
What was even better, there was a great selection of Georgia beers. I’m a big fan of both Terrapin and Sweetwater breweries, so I was excited to try some beers that are generally unavailable in Las Vegas.
They didn’t just have beer, though. As our reader is probably aware, Coca-Cola is housed in Atlanta. Evidently, Coca-Cola is trying out a new drink dispensing system – basically a new kind of soda fountain. Taco Mac, being a local Atlanta merchant, had this new system. The beverage selection was, just as much as the beer selection, extensive.
After surveying the beverage selection, I did, in fact, decide on a beer. One of my all-time favorites – Terrapin Rye.
I also ordered a bite to eat. Boneless chicken fingers (known as chicken nuggets or chicken fingers when I was in elementary school) and French fries.
As it turns out, the food was actually really, really good. The fries were perfect and the tenders were juicy with great sauce. It was all top-notch, which I didn’t really expect. I generally expected the beer selection to compensate for what was otherwise mediocre/lackluster food. Not the case, though! The beer was everything I hoped for, while the food exceeded my expectations.
I topped it all off with a second beer – Sweetwater IPA. Georgians definitely know how to do craft beer.
It was “just a bar,” but everything about it was a step above everything I expected. I made my way back again (to a different location – it’s a local chain) while I was in Atlanta, and found it to be just as tasty. I was even more excited when I heard that Taco Mac had opened a shop in our very own, Charlotte (South Park)!
