The name of this family-friendly sports bar is a bit misleading: Buffalo-style chicken wings—not tacos—are the main attraction. The cooked-to-order wings are sold by the pound, available both bone-in and boneless in five heat levels. Taco Mac claims to have one of the biggest beer selections in the South, with as many as 108 different beers on tap and about 350 varieties in bottles at any one time. The chain performs especially well with young adults over 21 and families with young children. The Tappan Street Restaurant Group operates the concept.
