NJ Shore version of TexMex type food. Very tasty and good selection and you can get a beer too! That's something many fast food places in NJ don't do.

While there is a full bar and eat-in service at this location I usually get takeout from here once a month. My usual order consists of the garlic shrimp taco and chicken Teriyaki taco.

If you're looking for greasy, uncooked, and downright disgusting seafood please enjoy. If you have taste buds and a serve of smell avoid this overpriced dirty bar.

This is a great place for a quick fresh bite. Their garlic shrimp and fish tacos are outstanding. There is live music on Saturday nights.

I eat here all the time. I get basically one of three dishes - fajitas, enchiladas or the maverick burrito. Food is pretty good. Service is fast - they give you a number and then bring your food. The chicken fajitas I got yesterday were decent, the chicken was a bit dry. However, the meal, with a soda, was $12.... More

We were then told... More
