Metro west Mexican

OUR fave place, Daniella's Cantina in Acton

has closed. This was a small, authentic mexican place with KILLER margaritas! The sign says they clsoed to allow the little breakfast place next door to other info. If anyone knows what happened or if they are reopening elsewhere, please fill us in. Otherwise, any suggestions for a replacement?

  1. Not sure if Waltham is a bit too far away, but Taqueria Mexico and Taqueria El Amigo are two of my favorite authentic Mexican places in the Boston area.

    1. Tu Y O just opened in Needham...metro west but not really close to Acton either.

      1. La Tapatia in Marlboro. It's been around for years, though we only recently discovered it. It's a great family run dinerish type place. Both my wife and I agree that it's the best Mexican we've ever had outside of Mexico.

            I just went there for lunch on Friday- it's not downtown, and it's still open.

              Mi Ranchito (not sure of the spelling) in downtown Marlborough closed this summer. La Tapatia is still very much alive.

          2. I find the Acapulcos restaurants (Southborough, Sudbury, Milford...maybe others) are pretty similar to Daniela's. Also good but a little far out, Cancun's in Grafton. You might also want to try Sierra's in Sudbury. Also check out the New England board - lots of more westerly Metro West discussion there.

            I do NOT recommend Canyon Cafe in Westborough. Some folks like it, but I've never had a good meal there. The food feels very heavy and under seasoned.

              Sierra's has seriously got to be the worst meal i have ever had, including the free ones you get in coach class on planes and elementary school cafeteria... They do have good drinks though but the food.. seriously horrible.

                It can be hit or miss. :) I used to work nearby and we went there on occasion for lunch. It was OK - more sold on the proximity to work than anything. Though I did like the crawfish etouffe. It's an app but I get it as my meal. And the margaritas were good.

                1. re: hargau

                  Pretty much sums up my one visit to Sierra's - seriously good margaritas, seriously bad food.

                  1. re: hargau

                    Agree - Sierras is terrible

                      I've heard that they're getting (got?) a real chef, so things may take a turn for the better. I will wait to hear what my sources say about it -- couldn't bear another meal there if things were the same!
                      They are known for their margaritas and bottled beer :)

                  2. re: Eatin in Woostah

                    No need to fear visits to Canyon Cafe.....they closed recently.

                    1. Canyon Cafe in Westborough has also closed, btw.

                        Didn't know! I don't get out there much any more. Any word if another restaurant is going in there?
