Cheeky to Open Sandy Springs Location


Taqueria Brings Latin-Inspired Menu, Festive Atmosphere to Chastain Park Neighborhood

Cheeky, the lively taqueria dedicated to redefining Latin-inspired food with an unwavering commitment to quality, community and sustainability, is excited to announce the opening of its fifth Atlanta-area location in Sandy Springs. The restaurant, located in The Gateway live-work-play complex near Chastain Park is opening for dinner on Monday, Sept. 19, with lunch to follow soon after.

“Since our first opening in Suwanee almost 10 years ago, Cheeky has been about providing a dining experience big on personality and flair, centered on from-scratch food made with locally sourced ingredients,” says president Jalynn Barr. “We take a lot of pride in our creative menu and are thrilled to bring our playful environment to the Sandy Springs community. We invite them to get ‘Cheeky’ with us.”

The new outpost features a walk-up station, allowing visitors to place their order and take it to go, perfect for those on their way to events at Chastain Park Amphitheatre or just headed home. The location will be dog-friendly as well, with complimentary treats for four-legged friends.

Cheeky serves up a chef-driven approach to Latin favorites with bold, flavorful recipes. All dishes are made from whole, raw ingredients—never processed—and are fully prepared, cooked and tested in-house. Even the tortillas are locally made. Menu selections range from enticing appetizers like taquitos and Cheeky wings to mouthwatering tacos, sandwiches, plates, salads and Cheeky bowls stuffed with rice, black beans, cheese, lettuce and more.

The beverage menu features made-from-scratch skinny margaritas, top-quality mojitos and signature cocktails with fresh-squeezed juices. A staple in every Cheeky is location is the “pour your own beer” wall of craft beer. Cheeky was the first restaurant in North America to feature this technology and the first in the world to have the wall of do-it-yourself taps.

Much like the other locations, the Sandy Springs restaurant will feature an open kitchen, garage doors that can swing open to connect the interior and exterior, menus that hang from the wall, and “Cheeky,” the winking, mustachioed mascot.

The Sandy Springs restaurant will also share Cheeky’s dedication to making a difference in the neighborhoods it serves. “We take our communities very seriously,” says founder and owner Jose Hevia. “We’re committed to working hand-in-hand with our local schools, charities and other organizations.” (press release courtesy of Emily at Melissa Libby & Associates)
