Plaza Azteca Coming to Boston and Hingham; 50 Other Locations Planned for New England

A Connecticut-based group of Mexican restaurants is going to be opening two new spots in the Greater Boston area--and many more could eventually be on the way to the region.

According to their website, Plaza Azteca is planning to open new outlets in Boston and Hingham, with the Hingham location possibly opening this month, based on information from a Craigslist job post. The Hingham branch of the eatery will be going into the former Chili's space at the intersection of Routes 53 and 228, though it is not yet known where the Boston location will be. Other locations are planned for Cape Cod, Enfield, CT, and New York City, joining existing locations in Methuen and Worcester, MA, along with Manchester, Newington, and Wallingford, CT. A Boston Globe article mentions that Plaza Azteca plans to open 50 new locations in New England over the next ten years.

[September 13 update: A Chowhound poster state (via Facebook) that Plaza Azteca has opened its Hingham location, making this the first to come to the Greater Boston area.]

Plaza Azteca first started out in 2003, offering "Mexican gourmet cuisine" to diners, including tostadas, empanadas, taquitos, enchiladas, quesadillas, fajitas, chimichangas, burritos, and more. The website for the chain can be found at
