Taco Mac has occupied the location for 15 years.
“Since 2006, when Taco Mac Lindbergh opened, the climate of the atmosphere around Lindbergh has drastically changed,” restaurant officials wrote. “The combination of recent restaurant closures in the development, safety challenges in the parking garage, and a recent uptick of crime in Buckhead has made this location no longer safe for our team members.”
