[CLOSURE ALERT] Huey Luey's Goes Silencio in Sandy Springs

Huey Luey's Mexican Kitchen & Margarita Bar has shuttered its Sandy Springs restaurant at 6650 Roswell Road.  The two level, 6,500 square foot eatery which opened five years ago reportedly closed earlier this week, which would seem to coincide with the completion of a five year lease. The Sandy Springs closure leaves the locally owned group with two locations, the original in Hiram which opened in 2011, and a second location in Acworth which debuted in 2014.  
Huey Luey's was created by serial restaurateur Richard Stoll.  Richard, along with his brother Bobby, previously started and grew Stevi B's "The Ultimate Pizza Buffet," a chain similar to CiCi's Pizza, to 28 locations before selling it to Argonne Capital Group in 2008.  (Today, the chain is down to just thirteen units.) The brother started Cheeseburger Bobby's in 2007, a quick-serve burger chain that now includes thirteen locations.  Richard left the quick-serve burger business to start the full-service Huey Luey's.  

The Sandy Springs Huey Luey's was a first generation restaurant space when it opened, having previously hosted retail tenants including Sandy Springs Funhouse, a family entertainment facility, Steinway Piano Galleries, and at one point, a Kroger.  The second floor patio space was all-new for the restaurant and gave it a little more curb appeal in a center it shares with a Goodwill thrift store.  
Sources close to the restaurant indicate the former Huey Luey's space has already been leased and a that new restaurant will soon open in its place.

They were great when they first opened. Then, they weren’t consistent with the items in their menu. They also changed their manager frequently. We stopped going there 2 yrs ago.
