The Queso Shop, a new kitchen and takeout window from the team behind Yumbii and The Queso Truck, is now open for online ordering, delivery, and walk-up service in Atlanta’s Piedmont Heights neighborhood, at 2127 Liddell Drive. It is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. or until supplies run out.
The Queso Shop’s Tex-Mex menu is available daily and includes queso, tacos, quesadillas, salsas, sides, rotisserie chicken, handmade churros, and more.
The Queso Truck was first introduced in 2017 in Los Angeles by Atlanta food truck pioneer Carson Young and his long-time friends Nick and Cammy Miller before making its way to Atlanta in 2019.
“Young helped launch Atlanta’s food truck movement when he founded Yumbii’s first food truck in 2010,” according to an announcement Monday. In 2017, he opened Yumbii’s first brick-and-mortar location in Brookwood Hills and today, Young operates two Yumbii storefronts, the Yumbii truck and The Queso Truck, with plans to open additional Yumbii locations.
“During the pandemic, we saw the rise of ghost kitchens and virtual restaurants, and we think those are here to stay,” Young said. “We’re excited to bring fans of Yumbii and The Queso Truck a new location with easy pick-up and ordering capabilities.”
Designed by Atlantan Lindsay Denman, the walk-up window mimics the “California-cool” aesthetic from Yumbii’s storefronts while tying in The Queso Truck’s color scheme of pink, orange, green and black.
