It looks like much-loved Yoli’s Cafe in downtown Chandler will not reopen under new ownership after all. A new taqueria called Ghett’ Yo’ Taco instead will open in the former Yoli’s building on Friday, Sept. 29.

Downtown Chandler entrepreneur Peter Sciacca bought the six-year-old cafe from Rick Scott and chef Yolanda “Yoli” Fernandez in June. His original plan was to find someone to run the restaurant with just a few minor tweaks.

Over the summer, though, Sciacca shifted gears and leased the bungalow-turned-eatery next to The Perch brew pub to his son, Christian, who will launch the taqueria.

Ghett’ Yo’ Taco will offer a simple menu of six tacos – al pastor, carnitas, carne asada, pollo asado, pescado, and ‘‘muncher especial’’ – for $2.95 apiece.


The rest of the food menu consists of mini quesadillas ($2), beans ($1), rice ($1), and chips ($1.50-$2.50).

Beer and wine are available by the can (starting at $2.95).

The building has been extensively remodeled, including a large front mural (pictured at top) by famed Valley artist Lalo Cota and a patio that wraps around all four sides.

A late-night walk-up window will be added next month.

Ghett’ Yo’ Taco will be open 11 a.m.-11 p.m. weekdays and 11 a.m.-midnight weekends to start.
