Anna's Taqueria Is Opening in Newton Highlands

A local group of restaurants that focuses on Mexican food is looking to open a new location, with this one being in a western suburb of Boston.

The Newton TAB is reporting that Anna's Taqueria is planning on opening in Newton, with the shop being somewhere in the Newton Highlands village of the city. The article says that the people behind Anna's are "actively involved" in securing a space for the Newton location, which would be their seventh in the Boston area (they currently have one in Boston, two in Brookline, two in Cambridge, and one in Somerville).

[February 2 update: According to a post in The Boston Globe, the new Anna's Taqueria will open at 27 Lincoln Street, which is where Rox Cafe had been until closing in October.]

[March 1, 2016 update: Eater Boston states that the new location of Anna's in Newton Highlands is now open.]

Anna's Taqueria, which first started out in 1995, is known for such items as burritos, quesadillas, and tacos, with the group of eateries being particularly popular with college students in part because of their affordable prices.

The website for Anna's can be found at
