The Toco Hills shop features a self-service ordering kiosk (dubbed a taco ATM) with a walk-window. While the restaurant doesn’t include its own seating, people are welcome to sit on the patio next door at Yumbii.
In addition to serving its namesake dish, expect loaded tater tots and nachos, a handful of tacos and quesadillas, and a rotisserie chicken meal offered daily after 4 p.m. The meal comes with flour tortillas and a choice of two sides as well as queso, salsa, and chips. The lone burrito on the menu here is stuffed with tater tots, queso, charro beans, pico, crema, and guacamole with a choice of chicken, carnitas, or marinated ribeye.
Young first opened the Queso Shop as a takeout window last March on Liddell Drive in Piedmont Heights (now home to cafe Daily Chew.) He ended up closing the shop there just three months later and announcing its eventual relocation to Toco Hills beside Korean taco and burrito restaurant Yumbii.
Two new in-town Atlanta locations of both the Queso Shop and Yumbii open at the Moores Mill shopping center on Marietta Boulevard this spring, followed by openings at Midtown Promenade on Monroe Drive later this fall. An Alpharetta location of Yumbii should also open this spring at the Atwater shopping center across from Avalon on Old Milton Parkway.
The original Yumbii location resides on Peachtree Street in the Brookwood Hills neighborhood.
