I recently moved to Belmar and I noticed that I have been spending a ton of time in the small Monmouth County borough next door, Lake Como. Even though it is 166 acres, in Lake Como, you can find one of the best Jersey Shore bars, Bar A, and one of the tastiest Monmouth County steaks... yes, I am talking about the N.Y. strip steaks from McCann's Tavern. If you know, you know...

Here's another one you might agree with... Lake Como is also the home to the best Mexican Restaurant in Monmouth County. I understand that is a bold statement but I'm standing by it, here's why...

The other night, I ate at La Sierra for the first time and I can't stop thinking about it. I am not exaggerating when I write this, it was easily the best Mexican food I ever had. The atmosphere is one-of-a-kind and the food is spectacular. I literally inhaled my chicken enchiladas. I was third-wheeling with my parents, but that didn't stop me from drinking two frozen margaritas. It was both my mom and dad's first time going too. They ordered the chimichangas and they liked it just as much as I did. Some might not agree with this, but my mom thinks La Sierra is better than Jose's in Spring Lake. Do you know how big of a statement that is by my mother?!?

La Sierra gives you the true Mexican food experience. Many will say it's a tough place to eat at because there's not much seating. Don't let that stop you from going in and trying it out. La Sierra is a great place to eat with family, friends, and significant others.  The truly authentic Mexican restaurant is a must-go-to spot in Monmouth County.

La Sierra is located at 1621 Main St, Lake Como, NJ 07719. You can call and pick up an order at 732-749-3081!

P.S. - Don't forget to stop at Rudy's on Main after eating at La Sierra. They are right next to La Sierra! Rudy's offers great Italian ices, bavarian pretzels, and gourmet fudge.
