Popular Mission-style burrito shop Bell Street Burritos is closing its original location, with plans to open another.
When Bell Street Burritos owner Matt Hinton was still teaching Religion at Morehouse and Spelman Colleges, he began making and delivering burritos to make up for fewer classes due to decreased enrollment, due, in turn, to the recession of 2008-9. At that moment, there were very few places in which he could envision opening a brick and mortar burrito shop, but the Sweet Auburn Curb Market was the right fit. So it was that he opened the first Bell Street Burritos 9 years ago. But the Curb Market sees itself as an incubator of new businesses and it is in that spirit that Bell Street announces that this Friday will be our final day at the Curb Market-- not because it didn't work, but because it did: We are not simply closing the shop but we are moving the operation to a new location--our first shop outside the Perimeter-- in Tucker. If you have been paying attention, you know that Tucker, Georgia is killing it right now and Bell Street is very happy to begin a new thing there. So, we will miss The Curb Market and all our friends who make it what it is. We are grateful for our time there, but it is time to make way for the next scrappy upstart to do good things in our place.
Therefore we are pleased to report that our new shop will be located at 4053 Lawrenceville Hwy, Tucker GA, 30084. We are not yet open, but are getting closer every day. We will have a soft opening within a month and will announce our grand opening with all kinds of crazy give-aways and what-have-you's shortly thereafter. Stay tuned.
In addition to its forthcoming Tucker location, which will take over the space previously occupied by El Tapatio Mexican restaurant, Bell Street also has eateries in the Stove Works building in Inman Park and in Buckhead at 1816 Peachtree St.
