El Nopal Mexican expands to Sixes Road

Update: Due to some building permit delays, construction hasn’t begun yet. Stay tuned for future updates!

In the former burned down Bridgemill Sales and Management office on Sixes Road, the owners of Marietta’s El Nopal Mexican restaurant purchased the land to open and build their second location in Canton called Nuevos Amigos. As a resident of the area, I can’t tell you how many times I have heard “someone should put a restaurant there for the amazing views!” Well, it’s happening early 2018!

Canton residents Greg and Diane Hammond have been in the restaurant business for 25+ years. They look forward to opening a neighborhood restaurant with a classic menu. Some of the features of this 4,900 square foot restaurant will include an upper deck (for those 21 years and older) a patio for outside dining, and a large indoor eating space. There will be a fountain and garden area to look like “grandma’s patio!”

Here is the first draft of the renderings. The concrete may change to brick as they continue to modify the plans.

This restaurant isn’t about being foo-foo, but just having great quality food in a beautiful setting.

There will be plenty of space for families and children, and the upper deck will possibly have acoustic singers or a Spanish guitar player. They want you to be able to hear your dinner date or friends. The upper deck’s current plans are to close at 11 and not be a late night bar, but a great place to just unwind.

We want this to be a neighborhood restaurant with consistently good food that also supports the local community.

One of the features that El Nopal is known for is their lunch buffet during the week. On the weekends, it becomes more elaborate with fresh handmade tortillas made before your eyes.

Since this is a stand-alone restaurant, there will be plenty of parking and you won’t have that strip center feel. The Hammond’s have been renting the location in Marietta and are excited to put their stamp on this expansion. Marietta will remain open.

You can follow them on their El Nopal Facebook page and check out their full menu here.  Their logo for Nuevos Amigos is currently being designed and we will share it when it is ready.

We also recently broke the story about Franklin Street development company on Sixes Road that will have a Waffle House, Dunkin Donuts and another possible restaurant with a rooftop.

Thank you to the Hammonds for providing us with this exclusive scoop and you can visit them in Marietta while you wait for the Canton build out. Follow us on Facebook for more updates.
