Remember this Restaurant?: Sundown Cafe on Cheshire Bridge

Opened in 1991 at 2165 Cheshire Bridge Road, Sundown planted the seeds for what would later become Taqueria del Sol. The menu featured the Mexican-meets-Southern menu items Taqueria del Sol is now known for.

The restaurant closed in 2005 to become the third Taqueria del Sol location, which some customers bristled at.

"When we closed Sundown, people said, 'You can't do that.' They were mad and some are still mad, " Klank told the AJC in 2013.

Taqueria del Sol now has four Georgia locations (Decatur, Westside, Cheshire Bridge and Athens) and one Nashville location.
