Uncle Julio’s has left the Atlanta market.
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.
Uncle Julio’s has remaining locations in Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
