The chain restaurant Fuzzy’s Taco Shop will serve its first customers at 7 a.m. on April 15.

The taco shop is being completed in the building that was Sonny’s BBQ and has been under construction since the middle of February.

In the past week the restaurant has received the kitchen, bar equipment and a brand new sign that can easily be see from Hwy 301.

The main construction focus has been on the wrap-around covered patio that will hopefully attract more customers, Mitchell Clearman, director of development, said.

The patio will have direct access to the bar as well as two concession stands installed for customers to purchase appetizers.

“Overall, the patio and restaurant will have a bright, open atmosphere with plenty of color,” Bowser said.

Fuzzy’s Taco Shop is known for its variety of tacos and Tex-Mex style food.

Fuzzy’s Taco Shop will be open seven days a week from 7 a.m. until 1 a.m. on Monday through Wednesday. Thursday, Friday and Saturday the restaurant will stay open until 2 a.m.  On Sundays it will close early at 10 p.m.

In addition to the breakfast menu that will be sold all day, the Tex-Mex taco shop will also serve a variety of tacos ranging from pulled pork to shrimp.

At this time there is no special event to accompany the grand opening, but general manager Matt Bowser is currently working on developing something for the day and might even try out a few soft openings, Clearman said.

Customers can check the progress of the chain restaurant on its Facebook page.

Matt Bowser, general manager said, “We won’t have any specials on opening day because Fuzzy’s has specials every day for everyone to enjoy all the time.”
