Popular Mexican restaurant opens new location
The restaurant that EatThis.com said had the best nachos in New Jersey opened its seventh location, this one being in Piscataway.
New Brunswick-based Tacoria Mexican Street Kitchen is known for all kinds of Mexican food and claims it’s all fresh, with no freezer on site. They offer hand made tacos, burritos, burrito boxes, quesadillas and nachos.
According to their website, there are six other locations: Paramus, New Brunswick, Morristown, Montclair, Princeton and Jersey City with a location in Hoboken listed as “opening soon.”
They started out, according to their website, as “two friends of Rutgers” who REALLY LOVE MEXICAN FOOD, AND WE WANT TO SHARE OUR LOVE WITH OTHERS AT HOME. THEREFORE WE WENT TO MEXICO TO WATERPROOF THE CULTURE AND LEARN AS MUCH CULINARY SECRETS AS WE CAN, THEN SPEND MONTHS IN OUR OWN KITCHEN MIXING, MIXING, EXPERIENCING AND TASTING UNTIL WE KNOW WHAT WE KNOW. Y LISTO, TACORIA IS BORN!
They say they pay homage to the vibrant colors, rich culture and “warm hospitality of our neighbors to the south.” They want to make Tacoria a “place that inspires and enhances our local communities with amazing fresh food, great people and an amazing atmosphere”.
I guess they must be doing something right; they have over 500 reviews on Yelp! with a rating of four and a half stars out of five. Trip Advisor reviewers also love Tacoria, they still give it four and a half stars out of five.
