“Natick/Framingham areas have a diverse population and a variety of restaurants, but we noticed the need for a Tex-Mex takeout place that offers freshly made, authentic Mexican-style flavors, filling a unique gap in the local dining scene,” Guleria says.
The restaurant initially will not have a liquor license, but the owners are actively pursuing one. The plan is to offer a selection of beers, wine, margaritas, and Sangria.
