Forget Chipotle! There are plenty of places at the Shore to get authentic Mexican food. Here are my seven faves. 

  • Juanitos - Red Bank

    If you want to grab a bite before a show at the Count Basie, Juanito's is a must. I would suggest the steak burrito for sure. Just a heads up, BYOB.

  • Casa Comida - Oceanport

    Two words. Smothered chimichangas. Casa is right near Monmouth Park off 36. The owner says the 100 year old structure is haunted.

  • Dona Julia - Point Pleasant Beach

    Their fish burrito is the best! You also get a very authentic Mexican feel when inside.

  • Plaza Tapita - Asbury Park

    The guac is insane! Definitely go for the chicken tostadas and enchiladas. Absolutely the best sangria I've had.

  • Aby's Mexican Restaurant

    Get a load of Hongo borracho, Portabella mushrom, Chicken breast, jumbo shrimp, asparragus and golden tequila sauce with a touch of white wine and lime juice. Oh, Aby's also knows what "hot" sauce really is. They also deliver.

  • 10th Ave. Burrito - Belmar

    The best fish tacos I've ever had. The atmosphere is tops at the Shore hands down. Do not leave 10th Ave. without wrapping up your meal with a deep fried brownie...with bacon!!

  • Azteca Mexican Restaurant - Toms River

    It's all about the guacamole! Azteca is always offering specials and quality, authentic food.
