Stayed in Dunwoody during my recent Atlanta trip, and this was the closest beer bar. Had no choice but to hit it up and see what it was about. Here's what I thought.
Atmosphere: Here's where me and the typical "beer geeks" differ...I love the atmosphere here. I am a Falcons fan, and Taco Mac is the Official Falcons Bar. Tons of TVs and people having a good time. There's also a nice outside patio for dining if you'd like. It's good, clean, casual fun.
Quality: I thought for it being more of a sports bar, that it was great. Everything was done pretty well and it was a clean environment.
Service: Bartenders and waitstaff were great to me and I have no complaints. I didn't get any "frosted glasses" or anything like that. For as busy as they were, the service was great.
Selection: I am reading earlier reviews and am wondering what taps they were looking at. I saw Weyerbacher, Victory, Dogfish, Sweetwater...a lot of the good beers were there. I even commented about how it was like I never left PA. Tons of taps. The selection rocked. If you're knocking this place, you're too hard to please anyways.
Food: I had a Southwest Wrap and a Chicken Burrito and I thought both were done perfectly. Certainly not high-end food, but definitely not a fried food heaven (although they do have SOME of that if you want it).
Value: Very reasonable. You won't break the bank. They also run specials and have a beer of the month, etc.
Overall: I had such a great time here and loved it, but then again, I can have fun anywhere. I have nothing but good things to say about this location. If you're staying in the Dunwoody area (and don't have a tremendous stick up your ass), feel safe going to Taco Mac Perimeter. You'll have fun and have a few good brews.

Essentially the same as any other Taco Mac - friendly and helpful servers, excellent beer selection, decent food, always plenty of TVs on and blasting sports. It can get rather noisy, but they are geared towards the sports crowd. I sat at the bar and got to admire their impressive array of taps. I did not get a chance to sample their food, but I’m sure it’s the same as at the others in this chain, as in above-average for a sports bar. This is a good place to visit if you are anywhere near Perimeter Mall or the Sandy Springs MARTA station.

Buzz is the man behind the bar to see when you want an expert guide to the wall-o-taps. I also appreciated the full beer menu with a nice mix of domestic micros and international superstars. I also appreciated that the prices are on the beer menu, a rare thing and a good way not to get any unpleasant surprises. The fish tacos were good and they were happy to customize them to my liking. Beers were fresh and served promptly, though the glasses were too cold and were standard iced tea glassware. Prices were fair and food and a 3 beers had me out the door for under $25. The place lacks any real personal style, more "chainy cheerfulness" but I have to give them credit for bringing good beer to the masses.

My first time at a taco mac, kind of reminds me of home with firewaters only with mexican food. I walked right past the hostess desk which seems to be tucked away to the right and behind you as you enter.
I grabbed a seat at the bar to my left as I turn my head to the right a massive flat screen just about takes up the entire wall. Anyway I count about 90 taps on the wall and as I look at the list I notice really no local breweries beside Sweetwater. No biggie thats what I want to try. I got the IPA and 420.
All of the barkeeps were very pleasant and seem to be doing a good job keeping up with demand. I ordered the original burrito and in a blink of an eye it was there, very good too.
Maybe a bit more on the sports bar side but hey a nice tap selection, and better mexican food then taco bell. Good stuff I hope this chain makes it's way up to the north.

Pretty darn difficult to find if you're not familiar with the area. My GPS was useless and I had to call three times to finally nail down the location. This is a sports bar, so if that's not what you're after, decent beer selection or not, move on. Loads of TV's and nothing but games. The atmosphere includes high ceilings and the aforementioned flat screens everywhere. Nice sized bar with a large five door cooler fully stocked with many beers. It took several minutes for the barmaid to notice me, but once she did she apologized for the delay with sincerity and was very pleasant during my visit. I started with an Abita Purple Haze served in a frosted glass (a slight annoyance). I counted two rows of 50 taps for a total of...you guessed it, 100. My second brew was one from Georgia, Sweetwater and their 420 ale which was on draft. By 5:30 the joint was jumping. Didn't try the food. Bottom line, a nice place if you're seeking a sports bar. Large selection of nothing that'll knock yer socks off, but given that, not a bad spot.

Very much like all other Taco Mac locations. Went on a Friday night to watch a Thrasher's away game with a group of friends. Very crowded, very loud..plenty of TVs. Service was good especially for how crowded and busy it was and how rowdy my table was..server busted her butt.
Beer selection is pretty much the same as all other Macs..they've got the wall of taps and then a good bottle selection. Overall if you've been to one..they are much the same..
Food here was good (had the wings)..a good location overall...if you want a good beer and to hang with friends..it's good place to be

This is my second Taco Mac experience. The quantity of taps is THE reason why I go to Taco Mac. The Brew-niversity club is pretty cool too! The selection can be a bit overwhelming, but I'll get over it. The food seems to be reasonably priced, but I find it to be somewhat average. I would much rather go to another restaurant and go here for the beer. Inevitably, I will be coming back when I have guests in town or if I have buddies that would like to give it a try.

Went last night after school (and Mellow Mushroom closed)
Fairly crowded for a Tuesday night, we sat outside on the patio so that the smokers could get their fix (gross). It took a while for the servers to find us, we ended up just going in to the bar to order
I enjoyed it, it was my first time to Taco Mac, and I got a Passport Card. My first 3 choices were out (including 60min IPA) but eventually i settled on Heavy Seas Loose Cannon (which i didn't realize was going to come in a 12 ounce "wine glass" - bummer... for $7). The guy next to me at the bar was giving me crap for it.
My next beer was a Breckenridge Vanilla Porter which was delicious (even though their menu listed it wrong 7.4% vs 4.7%)
Location is an outdoor mall... like Collierville, TN or Southlake, TX
I felt lost in the parking lot on the way in

Not a lot of vibe at Taco Mac, simply put to me it's a sports bar with a very good beer selection. And if in Atlanta you should be close to one of the locations and they are all pretty much the same.
It's a great place to watch games with TV's everywhere and always seems to be crowded. This leads to slower service, though not bad service.
The food is typical sports bar fare, not bad but not impressive either.
It's a great place to go with a group as there is something to eat for everyone. And I can have good beer and others can have swill or liquor.

Pros - Very good beer selection. Staff behind the bar knowledgeable about selection.
Cons - Loud. Crowded. Clueless waitstaff. Loud.
Came here on a Thursday night and had a 30 -45 min wait for a table. Bar was full with folks standing (not quite two deep). Beer selection was enough to stay. Prices were reasonable. If I knew of a quieter place to go in the area with as good a selection, I'd have gone. The place is too loud and crowed for my tastes. Overall the food is marginally better than average. The beer does make up for it, thought, and, honestly, I there for the beer. Would I go back? Maybe early in the week if I could sit at the bar.
