About Taco Mac:
Known for its delicious Buffalo wings, unparalleled beer selection, great atmosphere and excellent service, Taco Mac began in Atlanta in 1979 when a couple of guys from Buffalo, N.Y. made a pit stop in Atlanta on their way to Florida. After touring the city and enjoying the weather they decided to stay and bring a popular northern cuisine - Buffalo wings - to the sunny South. Thirty years later, Taco Mac now has 23 stores in metro Atlanta and Chattanooga, and continues to grow, with new locations expected to open in Charlotte later this year. Today most Taco Mac restaurants have approximately 35 high-definition, flat-screen televisions on display for guests to enjoy local and national sporting competitions. Taco Mac, owned by Atlanta-based Tappan Street Restaurant Group, has also made a name for itself as an avid supporter of the community. From in-kind donations for a school giveaway to an annual golf tournament that raises funds for non-profit organizations, Taco Mac is dedicated to serving the communities that surround them.
