Any such thing as a "taco stand" in NNJ?

I miss being able to just walk up to a window & order a couple of tacos from an ordinary little taco stand. I'm in Passaic county....... anyone know of one anywhere within a reasonable driving distance? NOT Taco Bell!

  1. I don't know if you can order individual taco.....but you can get three(3) for $7.95 from a new place that opened in Bogota, easily accessible off of Route 80.

    252 East Fort Lee Road


    1. Further away, but if you're in Hoboken, The Taco Truck (not an actual truck in this case, but they also have one) has excellent tacos and more...

        I second the Taco truck. Great place.

          A co-worker just told me that Taco Truck has opened another restaurant in Morristown...they're in the Burger King plaza. Across the street from Raul's Empanadas, for those who think the way I do... :-)

        2. Passaic has several taquerias. You might have to walk through a door though.

          1. not a Taco stand, but Tinga is very good:


            fast food style restaurant, but much better quality.

            in Montclair, Millburn, Westfield. Don't know if there are other locations...

            1. Hudson County, Jersey City Grove St. by PATH train, Chilango taco stand sometime's there setup w/ a blinking light. Yeah, as a child was in Cali Southland myself and remember burrito truck near my junior high school. Otherwise, you'd need to go to Manhattan, there's a couple of trucks around think one is near 14 st. Union Square. Good luck.
