Best sports bar in Atlanta | Best of Atlanta

Football is back, and fans are congregating at their favorite sports bars to cheer for their beloved teams.

This week's Best of Atlanta poll is focused on finding the best sports bars to show your support while eating delicious bites and drinking frothy beverages.

If you've watched a game at Taco Mac while diving into a heaping pile of hot wings, then you know that it's a top sports bar destination for many fans in town.

Offering multiple locations across Atlanta, Taco Mac is the No. 1 place to catch the big game, according to our voters. 

Coming in at No. 2 is Twain's Brewpub & Billiards in Decatur. Masters of multi-tasking will enjoy eating a decadent burger, playing an intense game of pool all while keeping tabs on your favorite team via the many TV screens throughout the pub... all at the same time.
