The chain of Mexican eateries has permanently closed its two local restaurants in Buckhead, at 1860 Peachtree Road, and in Sandy Springs, at 6115 Peachtree Dunwoody Road.

Uncle Julio’s has since removed both locations from its website and a cached copy of the locations page confirms the news.

“This location is permanently closed,” a now-deleted landing page for each location stated.

“We thank you for your years of loyal support and hope we can serve you again in one of our other locations. Thank you!”

Reps for the company on Thursday confirmed the news in a statement to What Now Atlanta but would not specifically explain why Uncle Julio’s completely closed up shop in Atlanta.

“We have chosen to permanently close our Atlanta-area locations, which have been closed since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic,” the spokesperson wrote.

“We appreciate the support of our guests and community.”

Uncle Julio’s joins a large number of local eateries calling it quits in recent days, most of which are citing financial hardships brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bummer – liked this place. Nice atmosphere even if it was a little loud. Didn’t realize it was such a large chain.

Was just talking to my buddy about CloudKitchens– he just toured their new facility off of Howell Mill.
When we broke down the expenses/overhead he would only make 10% profit.
Interesting concept though, and apparently the ones that already exist are pretty popular.

I miss the gay takeover on Friday evenings, in the early 2000s, at Uncle Julio’s in Buckhead.

I heard a while back that Piedmont Hospital was purchasing their land along with Ted’s Montana Grill for future expansion??

The one in Buckhead was going to close this year because the hospital bought the land, they talked about making a new location and merging with the Sandy Springs location, but I guess they just decided to call quits on Georgia.

Oddly enough, it wasn’t the hospital that bought the land, but rather the Sheperd center. Completely separate entity. If anything, I would’ve guessed the Sheperd center would sell their facilities to the hospital and relocate (not unlike CHOA moving away from Emory’s campus). This move makes it look like they’re doubling down in the area…
