After announcing the August 23 closure of its takeout window and upcoming move this winter, the new Memorial Drive location of Supremo Taco is now confirmed.

Supremo Taco is taking over the building located directly behind the current restaurant bordering Memorial Drive, once home to tire shop Wheel Accent, Craig Habif of Habif Properties tells Eater. Joining Supremo Taco is a second location of East Point bakery and cafe Kupcakerie, which takes over the building formerly home to L&D Auto Service and Repair in the back of the property along Chastain Street. Kupcakerie should open this fall.

Habif says these are the only two tenants opening on the property, with the buildings currently under renovation by the individual restaurant owners.

In an announcement posted to Instagram earlier this week, Supremo Taco owners Duane Kulers and Omar Ferrer indicated the move to a new building after three years at its present location was due to lack of space. The restaurant operates both its kitchen and takeout window from a small brick building across the parking lot from Grindhouse Killer Burgers. Mainly a takeout operation, Supremo Taco doesn’t include seating, other than a few standing tables on a deck and patio beside the restaurant.

With the move to a larger building, Kulers and Ferrer plan to offer indoor dining, include a full bar, and serve a few new dishes on the menu when Supremo Taco reopens this winter. It’s unclear if the pair are expanding the square footage of the building or adding a patio for outdoor seating.

Kulers and Ferrer have yet to return Eater’s multiple requests for comment on their plans for the new location of Supremo Taco.

As for the Kupcakerie, owners Henry and Kascha Adeleye plan to serve the bakery’s gourmet cupcakes, pastries, and breakfast and lunch sandwiches on the menu at the new Memorial Drive location, as well as coffee using beans from Radio Roasters in Decatur. The Kupcakerie is known for baking cupcakes in flavors like churro, key lime pie, banana pudding, and Madagascar vanilla bourbon.

Design plans call for a larger indoor space for events and meeting areas geared toward Atlanta’s creative community. Henry Adeleye says the event space at the new location also features a larger outdoor space for bigger events than are typically held at the couple’s East Point location.
