Munchies Lab Gets The Green Light To Reopen in Columbia County
A few months ago we reported that Munchies Lab had permanently closed its doors at its Walton Way location. The last official day of operation was supposed to be September 16, but ended up being a few days earlier.
At the end of the report and via social media Munchies Lab owners were hoping this wasn’t a goodbye, but more so a see you later. Fast forward 3 months later and they have announced they have a new location in Columbia County and will be back!
Munchies Lab is owned by Patty and Ramiro who also owns Taqueria El Rey in Augusta.
If you have been following them on social media, they updated their profile picture to their Munchies Lab logo with an “under construction” sign over it.. that’s when community members started to think good news for the restaurant would be coming soon and it did!
Another thing that might’ve gave it away that they were coming back is the Munch Mobile car cruising around town.
One of the main reasons for closing was the lack of foot traffic in the area.
They are hoping to reopen in the new location the second week of January. They are currently waiting on the store front sign & menus.
While the owners haven’t announced the official new location, they have dropped several hints on where it will be located in Columbia County. For example, the Munch Mobile can be found parked in front of the location or even from the small video clips via social media.
If you aren’t familiar with Munchies Lab they are known for their creative food choices and risque theme.
Here are some of the items they had on their previous menu:
- Fried Pickle Roll – Dill Pickle, Cream cheese, Bacon, Tempura fried and covered with Chet dust
- The Munchies Dog – Brioche Hot dog topped with french fries, melted cheese, chili, sour cream, diced onions, and sprinkled hot Cheetos dust.
- And interestingly shaped waffles – if you know, you know.
