Hungry Coyote Is Opening in Needham

by Marc Hurwitz

It looks like not one, but two Mexican restaurants will be opening in a western suburb of Boston.

According to an article from The Needham Times, Hungry Coyote is planning to open on Highland Avenue in the former Orange Leaf space, with the restaurant having a connection to Hungry Coyote in Whitman, as head chef Francisco Mendez manages that dining spot as well as Avocados Mexican Taqueria in Stoughton. The post says that Mendez, owner Matthew Saiia, and manager Leona Leon (who is the wife of Mendez) are looking to have a counter-service area by the entrance and a full-service restaurant in the back that includes alcohol, with the place being open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If all goes as planned, Hungry Coyote hopes to open sometime in July.

As reported earlier, another Mexican restaurant called Pancho's Taqueria also plans to open on Highland Avenue as well; currently, a location of that dining spot can be found in Dedham.

The address for the new Hungry Coyote in Needham is 1185 Highland Avenue, Needham, MA, 02492.

[August 12 update: Based on multiple Facebook posts, Hungry Coyote has gone through a soft opening and someone who says that she works at the place mentions on the Needham, MA Facebook group page that its official opening takes place today.]
