Chepe's Mexican Grill was a well-liked dining spot for many Johns Creek residents, but now the doors are closed and the parking lot is empty.

Johns Creek resident Poncho Wilson said he noticed while riding his bicycle in the area recently that it had closed. He stopped and snapped a photo and sent in to Patch. 

According to city records the restaurant opened Nov. 3, 2011. Patch has attempted to reach the owner of record, Thomas A. Little, but as of the deadline for this story, he has not returned our call. 

While it was open, several diners took the time to post a comment on the restaurant's directory listing on the Patch site:

"We really like this place. It makes a great addition to our neighborhood. They are great about taking coupons, including mobile valpak coupons for other Chepe's. Be sure to get their rewards card. The manager always comes over to say hi and has comped us things several times. They love their regulars!"

Another simply wrote: Great place, great food!!

The restaurant, located at 3005 Old Alabama Road, was part of a chain of five restaurants including one in Cumming and another in Marietta which have also apparently closed.

The restaurant's phone number has been disconnected and a notice on its website indicates the domain name expired in December 2013.

Chepe's Mexican Grill served up soups, salads and other favorites like nachos, quesadillas and chimichangas. And you could even get a beer or mixed drink to wash it all down. 

Were you surprised that it closed?
