Authentic tacos that require no travel have just touched down in Closter, NJ. El Taco Bar, which is currently having its soft opening through March 11th, is bringing the lively atmosphere and authentic flavor of a real Mexican taco stand to its newly opened spot in downtown Closter. The official grand opening is the week of March 14th, and your taste buds will thank you for stopping by.
On the menu designed by Executive Chef Aura Montoya, find classic tacos, burritos and quesadillas that will transport you to another place. Taco options include the Carne Asada, Baja Fish, Carnitas and Raja (Vegetarian), among others. All tacos are prepared on their handmade corn tortillas that serve as the backbone of the taco, and pair well with their special house salsa -- which range from mild to very spicy -- for extra flavor. Burritos can be served on tortilla or turned into a burrito bowl, with menu items overlapping the taco options, plus the California burrito (steak, cheese, fries, guac) and Bean & Cheese burrito. Be sure to leave room for their delicious sides, including the Loaded Fries or Nachos -- both great for sharing -- and Street Corn served with mayonaisse, cotija cheese and chili powder. And if you're still hungry, or simply can't resist the call of a delicious dessert, try their Churros served with caramel dipping sauce.
You'll find authenticity in the ambience of this taqueria as well if you choose to dine in. Find small tables and standing booths to eat at -- no reservation required -- with ceramic tile tabletops reminiscent of a Mexican market. Mix and match tacos or grab a few of your faves, but be sure to come hungry.
