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 available both bone-in and boneless in seven flavors: Mild, Medium, Hot, Three Mile Island, Death, Lemon Pepper and Habanero BBQ. Taco Mac claims to have one of the biggest beer selections in the South, with as many as 140 different beers on tap and about 250 varieties in bottles at any one time. Several stores now have beer taps at the table, enabling customers to pour their own beer and pay by the ounce. The chain performs especially well with young adults over 21 and families with young children. The Tappan Street Restaurant Group operates the concept.
