Bell Street Burritos has temporarily closed its Tucker location as one of the restaurant’s employees Monday morning tested positive for COVID-19, Owner Matt Hinton told What Now Atlanta in an email after publishing the news to Facebook.

“The Tucker location of Bell Street Burritos is temporarily closed as we learned this morning that one of our employees has tested positive for COVID-19,” Hinton said. “Although it is not required by the state, out of an abundance of caution, we are closing to sanitize and disinfect our facilities and have our staff tested.”

Bell Street Burritos has two other locations that remain open and unaffected by the temporary Tucker closure: 1816 Peachtree Street and 112 Krog Street #1A.

“Our top priority is the safety and health of our guests and our staff and we have notified all team members who may have come into contact with the infected individual, and are working to get the staff tested immediately,” Hinton said. “We hope to be open before the end of the week, but we will not allow any team members to work unless they provide a negative test result. Follow us on social media for updates.”

  1. I love Bell Street Burritos. I have loved them for years. I tell everyone I know to go there. I’m so frustrated with their lack of social media responses to negative situations at their restaurants. I posted about a horrific experience at the Tucker location over the pandemic where I was trying to support local.
    I watched the cashier take her gloves off in frustration because she hates them. Leftover food on the tables and no one was wiping down tables (even though BSB social media said they were). A kid standing in the kitchen doorway put his finger to the back of his mouth. I put a VERY detailed message on their social media and got zero response. I wasn’t looking for free food. I love BSB’s food. I want to give them my money. Not sure I can now.
    This might have been avoided if they listened to their customers and responded accordingly both in word and in action.
