Jose Castaneda, the new owner, has plans to open Don Tequila Mexican Cantina at 219 Wolf Road this fall. He signed the lease about a month ago and is already deep into renovations. He’s working on getting a liquor license and hopes to open the doors in October according to Albany Business Review.

This will be Castaneda’s first restaurant in the Albany area but his fifteenth in New York State. Castaneda, who is based near Buffalo, has successfully opened several restaurants in Western and Central New York.

The Wolf Road location will feature a similar concept to his other cantinas, with a menu full of traditional Mexican dishes and a modern twist. When asked what we can expect, he said:

We are more modern. We push the liquor a lot more. We are more, I would say, fancy.
