49. Taco Mac, Virginia-Highland

Even though the chain boasts more than twenty-five restaurants in the Southeast, this original recipe (circa 1979) is still charmingly intimate—reminiscent of the building’s past life as, yes, a taco stand. Beer offerings aren’t as robust compared with newer, super-sized locations (twenty-four draft, 150 bottle), but it’s a worthy trade-off for service that feels more neighborhood bar and less corporate dynasty.
