Willy's Mexicana Grill Returning to Sandy Springs

Willy's is joining Trader Joe's in Sandy Springs.

Atlanta-based Willy's Mexicana Grill is returning to Sandy Springs with a new location on Roswell Road.  Willy's plans to open their new Sandy Springs location later this spring. The new Willy's will open in Sandy Springs Plaza in place of the shuttered Ray's New York Pizza.  Ray's closed this past October, after over ten years in business.

Willy's once had a Sandy Springs location on Roswell Road in the (now Publix-anchored) Dunwoody Place shopping center, but it closed many years ago.  The restaurant was a few miles north, past Abernathy and by all accounts, simply not in the best location.

Willy's has a number of new locations in the works with the heavily-delayed Cherokee Plaza location in Brookhaven now on track for a mid-February opening, followed by The Village at Druid Hills  (North Druid Hills at Briarcliff Roads) in early spring.

Where would you like to see Willy's open next?  

Please share in the comments section below.

Chamblee Plaza when it gets developed. There's no burrito place near that area (closest are Moe's in Dunwoody and Brookhaven). Excited that they are opening in that Ray's location - the nearest one (Hammond & Peachtree Dunwoody) has horrific parking and is a nightmare to go during lunch (even though I work 1 mile away). The lot at the Sandy Springs plaza is quite large, although you may have to walk a bit from the parking space to Willy's. At least you won't have to spend >5 minutes finding a parking space, though.

Can we please get a Willy's in Lilburn or Snellville? The only burrito place around here is Moe's.

@Anon RE: Lilburn / Snellville,

Please let me know if you have a great location in mind and I will pass it along to my contact at Willy's.

Thanks for your comments and readership.

Could there please be a willys in Suwanee or Lawrenceville? The only locations to satisfy my willys cravings are either Norcross or Athens. :( It's such a far out of the way drive for all of us out here!!!
