    The Georgia locations of Taco Mac are proud supporters of Camp Twin Lakes, renowned for providing life-changing camp experiences for children with serious illnesses, disabilities and other challenges. Over the past 20 years, the company has raised an impressive $745,000 for the cause. In 2017, Taco Mac donated 50 cents from each kids’ meal to the camp, and thanks to supportive parents and their hungry children, the company raised over $65,000 to send 138 kids to Camp Twin Lakes this summer.

    “Serving high quality, great tasting food and beverages that satisfy our guests is incredibly important to us,” says Taco Mac CEO Greg Lippert. “Of great importance, too, is the ability to give back to the community. It is so exciting to deliver on our goals and send these deserving children to Camp Twin Lakes. These are children who might otherwise not be able to go to camp, so we’re proud to help give them access to such valuable experiences.”

    Camp Twin Lakes CEO Jill Morrissey couldn’t be more delighted by the restaurant group’s steady support. “Thanks to our donors, most of our campers attend camp at no cost to their families,” she says. “Taco Mac's generous gifts enable Camp Twin Lakes to provide week-long therapeutic camping experiences. The company’s support has made an incredible impact in the lives of our campers, and we are ever grateful!"

    In addition to feeling good about helping a good cause, families dining at Taco Mac can also feel good about the great kids’ meals, which include favorites such as burgers, chicken and fish served with sides of fries or broccoli, along with juice and milk selections.

    An Atlanta institution since 1979, Taco Mac offers over 100 beers on draft, the Southeast’s Original Buffalo wings and 50+ HD TVs for enjoying all your favorite sporting events. Started by two friends from Buffalo, New York, Taco Mac now has 30 locations across Georgia, Tennessee, and North Carolina. Taco Mac has been named the best sports bar in Atlanta by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Jezebel and Groupon and one of the five best sports bars in America by ESPN.
