Mexican Food Restaurant Opening First Drive-Thru, Walk-Up Concept

Mesquite Fresh Street Mex, a family-owned concept serving a modern take on Mexican street cuisine, is opening the first drive-thru and walk-up only location on March 19 in Gilbert. The grand opening of the store on 4875 S Val Vista Drive begins at 11 a.m. with a special “golden ticket” giveaway that will award multiple winners free burritos for a year. The celebration will also include giveaways of branded stadium cups, hats, shirts, bumper stickers and other surprises distributed to attendees.

“We are thrilled to expand the Mesquite brand in Arizona by adding drive-thru and walk-up only locations across the Valley,” said Ahmad Alatrash, co-founder of Mesquite Fresh Street Mex. “There is a demand for attaining authentic cuisine in a convenient way and these grab and go designs will deliver our famous tacos, burritos and protein bowls for people on the move. We look forward to connecting with Gilbert residents and sharing our authentic meets modern Mexican concept with the neighborhood.”

As tradition for every location grand opening, Mesquite Fresh Street Mex will deliver giveaways for the community this time around as a “golden ticket” promotion. On March 19 and during the opening week, they will randomly be giving away tickets to drive-thru guests that can be redeemed for one free burrito for a year. There will be ten winners selected.

The 1,368 square-foot new build Gilbert location will have a drive thru ordering system for fast service. Customers can pick up food at the walk-up window or dine in under an impressive large covered outdoor patio. The signature custom-built mesquite grill featured at all Mesquite locations will be used to prepare the meat at this new restaurant. The grill uses real Mesquite wood chips giving the fresh meat a unique and smoky flavor. The company is focused on incorporating the highest quality ingredients into every dish and delivering on their promise to create a fast-friendly environment to eat delicious Mexican food. The menu features authentic street tacos, killer burritos, packed protein bowls, big quesadillas, frescas and family meal kits.

Mesquite Fresh Street Mex, formally Mr. Mesquite, is on an aggressive growth path opening four new locations in the last year with more on the horizon. Two new drive thru locations, in Laveen and Avondale will also open in 2022. Founded by brothers Naser and Ahmad Alatrash, the Mesquite brand specializes in bringing Mexican street food to neighborhoods across the Valley and takes pride in having the opportunity to generate jobs for dozens of residents in the communities it serves.
