Mexican or BBQ in NW New Jersey

  • 2
  • Share

Need a Tex-Mex (not Chevy's) or Barbecue place in NW New Jersey -- not too far from intersection of Route 10 and I 287 -- for Wednesday night. One of my sons moved from Texas to Montreal and really misses Tex-Mex -- but the rest of the family can't stand Chevy's -- so a GOOD Mexican or Tex-Mex place or a BBQ place would be great! Help, please!

  1. I've been to Hot Rods in Wharton which is about 10 miles away from the 10.287 intersection. You could go straight up Route 10 or take I-80 West.

    Hot Rod's is a small place with reasonable prices. Some really love the place. I found it to be fair to good on BBQ myself. If I were in the area, it would be worth considering, but I would not call it a destination for BBQ......however, in local newspapers it is always voted the best BBQ. Look at the site and decide for yourself.

    FWIW, if I recall correctly, they have an all you can eat rib night.......call to verify the day.

    1. I've never been, but Don Jose's in East Hanover fits your geographical demands exactly - about 4 miles from the intersection of 10 and 287.
