Thanks to a reader tip received over the weekend, Eater Atlanta learned a counter-serve Mexican restaurant called Taqueria el Tesoro is opening on Arkwright Place in the Edgewood neighborhood about a half mile from Coan Park. Construction is underway on the property and, by the looks of it, the restaurant won’t open for a few months.
El Tesoro announced its opening on Facebook, telling followers they’ll offer coffee and espresso along with breakfast tacos and burritos throughout the morning. For lunch, the restaurant will serve tamales, quesadillas, and “other Mexican treats” before closing at 2:30 p.m. Dinner and a bar are eventually planned.
The restaurant is owned by Alan Raines. He was affiliated with the taqueria before it closed in 2011 on Decatur’s Church Street. El Tesoro was previously located in the house where chef Kevin Gillespie’s southern restaurant Revival currently resides.
Eater Atlanta reached out for more details.
Update: This story was updated to reflect the restaurant’s ownership and previous affiliation.
