Yumbii opening brick-and-mortar taqueria Wednesday in South Buckhead

At 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Yumbii, known as Atlanta's first food truck, will open its first brick-and-mortar restaurant , also known as Yumbii, at 1927 Peachtree Road N.E. in South Buckhead, serving lunch and dinner.

The Brookwood Village taqueria is the first in a series of openings planned for the expanding brand. The 1440-square-foot restaurant will offer counter service, takeout and seating for dine-in guests.

Atlanta native Carson Young rolled out the first Yumbii food truck in 2010, serving Asian-Mexican-style tacos, and kicking off the Atlanta  food truck movement.

“We’ve been overwhelmed and humbled by the enthusiastic response to Yumbii over the last six years,” Young said in a press release. “Now, we couldn’t be more excited to lay down roots in a permanent space.”

Look for Yumbii signature menu items among tacos, quesadillas, burritos, rice bowls, and salad bowls with Asian rib-eye beef, Korean BBQ chicken, stir-fried tofu, spicy pulled pork, or panko-crusted tilapia. Beginning in January, the taqueria will also serve beer, wine, and margaritas.
