Taziki's is coming to Toco HillsFrom: http://www.tonetoatl.com
Birmingham, Alabama-based Taziki's Mediterranean Cafe plans to open a new location at Toco Hills Promenade. The Mediterranean eatery will open in the former Uncle Maddio's Pizza Joint at the Publix-anchored center on North Druid Hills Road. Uncle Maddio's at Toco Hills was the now chain's first location when it opened in 2009. As I reported in April, the restaurant closed due to a reported "30% rent increase."
Ironically, Taziki's will mark the return of "Mediterranean fare" to the 3,551 square foot space at Toco Hills. Prior to Uncle Maddio's Pizza Joint, Mama Fu's Asian House, and some other random Asian eatery, the space was for many years home to Gyro Wrap. Gyro Wrap, today known as Great Wraps, is Atlanta-based and known for their "Mediterranean inspired menu." This location was a favorite of my family's in the 90s.
Taziki's entered metro Atlanta in 2012 with a location in Sandy Springs at the "Glenridge Springs" development, near the Haverty's building. Taziki's added a location on Windward Parkway in Alpharetta in late 2013. Last spring, the chain opened in Athens in the Bottleworks on Prince Avenue.
