Taco Mac [Atlanta]


Don’t let the name of this restaurant fool you because it definitely fooled me. While there were a few Hispanic inspired dishes on the menu, the menu was mostly composed of American grill food items. I wasn’t really disappointed because at that point, I was starving. So, anything would have been fine.

This restaurant is set up like a typical bar and grill. There are a ton of TVs and high-top tables. We were sat almost immediately upon arriving. Our server was very good. He was attentive, had suggestions, and checked on us quite often. He seemed genuinely willing to serve us.

I ordered the Rocky Mountain Chicken Sandwich and fries. I also ordered a side salad. The salad was very filling alone. It was fresh, and had all the toppings I needed. The fries were good, and so was the chicken sandwich. It came with a special sauce, rocky sauce, which was pretty tasty. I believe the sauce was a mixture of BBQ and honey mustard sauce. An added bonus was that unlike some restaurants,  they weren’t stingy with the avocado. So, that made me happy. I will say this though, the food was good, but it wasn’t outstanding.

I would recommend dining in here. The atmosphere is fun, the service is great, and the food is decently priced.

Gladys and Ron’s Chicken and Waffles [Atlanta]

I am definitely shaking my head while writing this review. I had high expectations going to this restaurant located in Atalanta. My expectations were met with disappointment.

I ordered a chicken breast, waffle, catfish and grits. The chicken and waffle came out cold. Yuck! My butter didn’t even melt on my waffle. I asked the server to nuke my chicken and waffle, and that’s exactly what she did. Everyone knows what warmed-up fried chicken tastes like; it’s gross. She should have said that she’d have the kitchen make a fresh waffle and chicken breast. After re-receiving my chicken and waffle, I didn’t think there was anything special about them at all. Considering this restaurant is supposed to be known for these two items, I was quite disappointed that it had no flair and was just the average chicken and waffle combination.

The catfish was pretty good though, but the grits were salty. I wish that I had only ordered the catfish and grits because I wasted my money ordering the chicken and waffle. I’ve definitely had better.

The server was okay. She was somewhat attentive to our table; she could have checked on us more often. After the food was delivered, she kept away for quite a while. There was nothing spectacular about her service.

I was really excited to visit this restaurant, mainly because of the names associated with it. However, that’s all this restaurant stood on, its name. This was later confirmed by a resident of Atlanta, who said that people only go there for the name because the food is not all that good. Now, the menu offered a lot of other options. So, I wouldn’t go as far as to say that I don’t recommend it. I’d give it another shot, but I would definitely order something else.
