We've got some good news and bad news to report to fans of Sam Diego's Mexican restaurants.

The bad news first: Sam Diego's in Plymouth will be sold to another restaurant group and will likely be closed for the summer.

The owners of a pair of Mexican restaurants, Anejo, have agreed to purchase the popular Plymouth location, a stone's throw (no pun intended) from Plymouth's most visited rock. Anejo has two locations on the Cape (Hyannis and Falmouth), and to no one's surprise, they are thrilled to add Plymouth to the portfolio.

"We are excited to bring our unique take on coastal Mexican cuisine and cocktails to downtown Plymouth," said Anejo co-owner, Jamie Suprenant.  "This location has a special place in our heart, and we are honored to take over this unique restaurant space."

The new owners will be closing the restaurant for a number of months to revamp the current Plymouth Sam Diego's decor to better match the Anejo brand.  Surprenant, says they don't plan on opening their Plymouth doors until sometime in early 2024.

The good news for Sam Diego's fans?  Their Hyannis location is not part of the sale and will remain open and running as usual.

Why are the owners selling Plymouth?

"We've just decided that the ownership and management group in Plymouth is aging out. Some people are moving on. It changed hands, and we're just waiting for it to be done," Sam Diego's Dining Room Manager Karen Buchanan said.  "But Sam Diego's Hyannis is staying on, as is.  I think a lot of people think that we're closing, but they'll see when we continue to be here."
