Mary Mac’s has been a Ponce hot spot for over 70 years, serving up some of the best Southern cooking and hospitality in Atlanta.

Since women weren’t able to open restaurants easily in 1945, Mary McKenzie opened the restaurant under the more socially acceptable name “Tea Room.” After years of serving up fried chicken and collards, Mary Mac’s was purchased by Margaret Lupo and has since expanded from one dining room to six dining rooms and a full service bar.

In March of 2011, The Georgia House of Representatives created Resolution 477, which officially declared Mary Mac’s “Atlanta’s Dining Room.”
