Welcome to Moe's, please drive around.
Moe's Southwest Grill will open a new location at 3729 Union Road in Cheektowaga this month. It will be the first in the Northeast to boast a drive-thru.
The quick-serve Tex Mex restaurant chain has set an April 20 opening date for the newest Erie County location. Jerry Uvira is the franchisee. He bought it and three other Moe's locations from Kevin DiPirro, the local Sonic Drive-In franchisee, in November.
The new store will treat customers to a free entree and drink from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 19. It will also host a pre-opening fundraiser for Cheektowaga Central School District from 4 to 7 p.m. that day. On opening day, the first 50 guests through the door will receive one free burrito per week for a year.
The Atlanta-based Moe's is known for its burritos, as well as its free chips and salsa.
