WILLIAMSBURG-Another Mexican restaurant is making its way to Williamsburg.

Juan’s Café & Cantina announced on its social medial channels on June 22 that it is opening a location soon on Richmond Road in the city of Williamsburg. The establishment is taking over the building that once housed a Qdoba Mexican Eats. Qdoba recently closed for business due to a lack of workers.

The new Mexican Restaurant will be called Juan’s Taqueria & Cantina and will be located at 1220 Richmond Rd. adjacent to Extraordinary Cupcakes.

Juan’s Café & Cantina is a family owned and operated restaurant that specializes in authentic Mexican cuisine. The restaurant has three other locations in the area, two on the Peninsula in Hampton in Peninsula Town Center and in the Jefferson Commons shopping mall in Newport News, and one in Gloucester on Route 17 not far from the Coleman Bridge.

Juan’s Café & Cantina is one of many new Mexican restaurants that have opened or will soon open in Greater Williamsburg. 7 Mares Mexican recently opened on Richmond Road. Meanwhile, Taqueira Maria Bonita announced last week that it is opening a third establishment, also on Richmond Road. Midtown Row, meanwnhile, previously announced that California Tortilla will also open a restaurant in their development soon.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
