That Chuy’s at Akers Mill just opened and you deserve some Tex-Mex

Well, would you look at that; it’s Tex-Mex time!

(Editor’s note: It’s always Tex-Mex time)

And it’s a good thing because the Chuy’s at Akers Mill Square opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday.

The 6,500-square-foot restaurant at 2955 Cobb Parkway, is the third metro Atlanta location for the 34-year-old Austin chain. 

“We are so excited to open this location because Atlantans love their Tex-Mex and we wanted to bring out fun and fresh cuisine to the city for everyone to enjoy,” said store owner Bryan Turner.

The first metro Atlanta location of Chuy’s opened in Dunwoody in 2011 and the second opened in Kennesaw in 2013.

This restaurant announced in January that it was looking to fill 165 positions.

There’s plenty of non-traditional decorations for a Tex-Mex joint: a shrine to the absolutely-not-Texan-nor-Mexican Elvis Presley,  a “La Chihuahua Bar” with “framed pictures of local dogs” and a hubcap-covered ceiling.

The whole Cumberland area is expanding in a hurry with SunTrust Park and the accompanying mixed-use development The Battery.

This location will be open seven days a week. Sundays through Thursdays, the hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
