Rio Neuvo Rolls Into Formerly-Famous Dave's

Rio Nuevo, (new river in Spanish) a new Mexican eatery, will soon open not far from North Point Mall. After extensive interior work, it will be hard to tell the joint was a failed Famous Dave's BBQ. Located at 6400 North Point Parkway, the shopping center in which it will be located also features a Marshall's and a Dick's Sporting Goods, as well as one of the very few remaining Atlanta area locations of Fuddrucker's, and on the opposite end of the spectrum, one of a growing number of Five Guys'. I can find no evidence that the restaurant is part of any chain or restaurant group, so I'm a little worried about the success of this joint. Being an independent in this economy can be really good, or really bad. I will say that the association some will make of their name with longtime local favorite Nuevo Laredo will be a positive for them as there are bound to be those that just assume they are related.

Cool! I work right down the road and will check this place out. Not sure it will be better than Pure Taqueria though.
