Taco Mac has enjoyed serving the Decatur community for over 20 years, and we have made many great memories with our guests, team members, and the local community. While it is always a difficult decision to close a restaurant, we are committed to finding immediate placements for all eligible managers and team members and we look forward to welcoming guests at nearby Taco Mac locations, including Virginia-Highland and Midtown.
Going forward, we will continue to invest in our other 27 restaurants and maintain our commitment to growing the brand into new markets.
Taco Mac is owned by Nashville-based Fresh Hospitality, which has a portfolio of 20 restaurant brands, including longtime Atlanta restaurant Mary Mac’s Tea Room. The chain has more than 20 locations throughout metro Atlanta and Georgia, as well as locations in Tennessee and Alabama. A Taco Mac in the Lindbergh area closed in 2021 after 15 years, citing crime.
The menu specializes in chicken wings, with more than 15 sauce options, with other menu offerings including salads, burgers, quesadillas, tacos and sandwiches. The full bar highlights beer through its Brewniversity rewards program, offering more than 75 beers on draft.
Taco Mac Decatur is one of several longtime metro Atlanta restaurants that have closed this year, including Houck’s Grille, Doc Chey’s, King + Duke, The Original El Taco, Little 5 Pizza and the Lawrence. The Rusty Nail is set to close this weekend after nearly 50 years on Buford Highway, and the Glenwood will close in East Atlanta next weekend after 16 years. Taverna Plaka on Cheshire Bridge Road is set to close in November after 20 years.
