Sangria's Mexican Cafe in Tucker closed suddenly on Monday, according to several reports. 

The reason for the closure is not clear, although owner Jerry Herrera "hopes to re-open" soon, said a source who wishes to remain anonymous. "He is quite upset," she added. "They are closing; not by his choice." 

A Facebook posting by the company on Monday evening said, "there will be a statement issued tomorrow. Please check back then."

A call to Herrera was not immediately returned. A county health inspection in May this year yielded a score of 64 but it's not known if that was connected to the closing.        

The restaurant opened in 1996, soon becoming a popular local hangout, and there was a second location in Lilburn for a time. Herrera is a Tucker High School graduate and an active fundraiser for local projects. "He opens his arms," Judy Spain, who works at the school, told Patch. "He's helped us big time." 

Patch will have more information as it becomes available.
