TM Restaurant Group today announced that its Taco Mac restaurant at 423 Market Street in downtown Chattanooga will close Monday to undergo a major expansion.
After completing the first half of the expansion, the restaurant is expected to reopen on July 21 in part of its newly designed space, with the grand reopening of the fully expanded restaurant planned for mid-August.
The restaurant has been in downtown Chattanooga since opening in its current location in November 1998.
The expansion project began back in May. Once completed, the restaurant will grow to 6,700 square feet with a fresh, redesigned interior space and seating capacity will increase by 50 percent to accommodate 270 guests with indoor seating and two outdoor seating patios. The restaurant will also expand its beverage options will now include 96 beers on tap, with a greater focus on local and regional craft beers, along with signature cocktails and wine. The new, larger bar area will also include additional bar seating and high top community tables.
“After 16 years, it’s time to refresh this Taco Mac,” said Bob Campbell, TM Restaurants CEO. “We’re looking forward to the expansion of this restaurant and the excitement we think it will bring to Market Street and downtown Chattanooga."
