Food truck-turned brick-and-mortar Yumbii has set Friday, August 28 as its opening date for its Toco Hills location. The new location, the second for Yumbii, will be larger than the original Brookwood Hills space and will feature a broadened beverage program, a covered, 700-square-foot patio, and a larger food menu available for takeout, dining in or delivery.
The Toco Hills outpost will be open for lunch and dinner daily. Guests can expect core favorites, like Yumbii Tacos and Famous Sesame Fries, to remain the same, while new options will be added to the menu, including health-forward items like build-your-own Salad Bowls. There will also be an expanded beverage program with a focus on beer, wine and tequila, including housemade margaritas.
Designed by Lindsay Denman, the space features a West Coast-cool aesthetic with custom locally-made banquettes, German Beechwood countertops, blue and white tile, rattan pendants, black and white striped flooring, and peach accents. Guests will be able to place orders at a counter before finding a seat in the dining room, at the bar or on the patio illuminated by string lights. The exterior wall overlooking the patio is adorned with a graphic black and white mural by local artist Lee Arnett.
Founded in 2010 by native Atlantan Carson Young, Yumbii “pioneered Atlanta’s food truck movement serving up tacos and sesame fries all over the city,” according to a press release Wednesday. In 2017, Young opened his first brick-and-mortar location in Brookwood Hills, and Young and wife Katy own and operate two Yumbii trucks, The Queso Truck, and the original outpost. The Toco Hills opening comes as the first in a series of openings planned for the growing brand.
