Two Canton restaurants on Route 44 have closed in recent days, according to information provided to Canton Compass.

Tacos Dorados, at 144 Albany Turnpike, which opened in December of 2014, is now “closed for good,” general manager Geraldo Dorado stated in a return email message to Canton Compass. He declined to elaborate further. Building co-owner Eric Leong said the partners still need to figure out their next steps.

“We haven’t entirely decided yet,” he said.

Just in December, Tacos Dorados had revamped its menu and marketed a new subtitle as an “authentic Mexican Grill,” a departure from its earlier mix of Mexican and Italian Cuisine.

Tacos Dorados represented the first new signs of life after Char Koon 1800 closed in early 2012. For nearly 30 years prior, the spot was home to the popular Margarita’s Restaurant. Area residents on Facebook have consistently urged owners to rebuild the upstairs bar area, a very popular spot during the Margarita’s era. The building dates back to the early 1800s and in Canton’s Bicentennial Commemorative book published in 2006, the late Dr. Larry Carlton states Joseph Dailey, a carriage maker, built it.

Momma Mia’s Italian Bistro, at 192 Albany Turnpike, had just opened in the fall of 2015 but has already shuttered. 

Edward Burke, a manager for building owner Valley Real Estate Holdings, LLC, said there are also decisions to be made on the future of that building as well. Posted on the building are both for sale and for rent signs. Burke said the owners are also considering exactly how to market the building but in the meantime would consider any proposals.
