Cabana Grill Launches First Restaurant in Snellville

New Fast-Casual Concept Offers a Fresh Take on Authentic, Handmade Mexican Food

January 22, 2014 // // SNELLVILLE, Ga. – Offering the fun and flavor of Mexico with its authentic handmade cuisine and vibrant, contemporary atmosphere, Cabana Grill is scheduled to unveil its first location and open the doors on March 31, 2014, at 1615 Scenic Highway in Snellville, directly in front of Lowe's. The public can now track the restaurant's progress on the newly launched Facebook page at

Cabana Grill is a new concept created by San Antonio-based Taco Cabana, which has more than 170 company-owned and franchised restaurants in Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico, and has served fresh, handmade Mexican cuisine for more than 35 years.

Cabana Grill's made-from-scratch offerings begin with fresh ingredients, such as vegetables that are chopped, roasted and blended by specially trained staff for flavorful, house-made salsas. The flour and corn tortillas are pressed by hand and grilled right in front of guests. Each batch of beans is prepared on-site with special seasonings and vegetables, then simmered for hours.

Other made-to-order items include steak and chicken fajitas grilled over an open flame, as well as shredded pork carnitas and signature Shrimp Tampico. Guests can enjoy authentic beverage choices like Mexican Fanta and Coke with real cane sugar, or a selection of cold beers and tequila margaritas made with triple sec and fresh-squeezed lime juice.

"Launching Cabana Grill in Snellville is the first step in sharing our love of handmade, great-tasting Mexican cuisine with the Southeast," said Cabana Grill Chief Operating Officer Todd Coerver. "In creating an authentic yet affordable dining experience, with the added convenience of a drive-thru, we will offer a unique and compelling twist on fast-casual Mexican."

In addition to the bold, rich flavors of its food, the 3,700-square-foot restaurant design reflects a true Mexican experience, with modern Mexican music exclusive to Cabana Grill, unique street scene photography, metallic star light fixtures that illuminate the dining room, native papel picado folk art accents and an inviting open kitchen.

Cabana Grill's chef-driven, fast-casual concept offers limited table service from a friendly staff committed to making each guest's meal relaxing and delicious. The restaurant has a convenient drive-thru option as well as an indoor/outdoor patio setting perfect for Cabana Grill's drink specials offered every day from 4-7 p.m., featuring 10-ounce tequila margaritas for $1.50.
