According to a news report by the Birmingham Business Journal, Taziki’s, a Birmingham-based chain of Mediterranean restaurants, has officially opened their 10th location in the Greater Birmingham area. Located in Gardendale, the new location has been opened since November—however, the team celebrated the restaurant’s grand opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday, December 7th.

The opening comes just a few days after two national restaurant chains—Olive Garden and Longhorn Steakhouse—announced plans to open new locations in Gardendale by 2023.

“We are so excited to welcome Taziki’s to Gardendale. A new restaurant with healthy options was a common request presented to me and Taziki’s fills that void. We appreciate Keith Richards and his team investing in our city. “
