Taco Mac Closed

On August, 4, Taco Mac in Decatur closed for renovations and is expected to reopen in October.

“After 12 years, it’s time to refresh this Taco Mac,” said Taco Mac CEO Bob Campbell in a press release.

The refresh and redo will be the job of Atlanta’s ai3, Inc., the company behind the design of fine dining spots such as Miller Union, 4th & Swift, Holeman & Finch and Lure.

Planned renovations include a new patio along Ponce de Leon Avenue, an expanded bar area with 100 draft  taps; new, more comfortable seating and upgraded LED HDTVs throughout the restaurant and bar.

T MaC- That tell’s you a lot about the folks behind T Mac. Re do your restaurant during college football season- wow.
I guess they are trying to become something they are not.

I went in that Taco Mac one time during the World Series, and every TV in the joint was on women’s soccer. I kid you not.
But the place was packed and everyone was enjoying the food and drinks and the programming; so who am I to judge?

To CEO Bob Campbell:

Please Please Please find a spot in the new, up & coming westside disctrict for a new TMac. We have 2 small crappy sports bars east of I-75 on Howell Mill Rd…but none west of I-75…so the market is yours. Fill the void.
