EL Dorado in Monmoth Junction has the best TEX MEX BRUNCH in NJ..They recently revamped the whole place/menu after they hired a new chef and the place truly rocks..I used to go there very often for their drinks but their food was pretty average..I recently went there and noticed a whole lot of changes including their menus,food,presentation and ofcourse service..This has become my new favorite place to hang out.Their calamari and jalapeno poppers were simply divine and the best I have ever had..

      thanks for some reason my linkie never showed up :-)

        Thanks eM for the link. browsed the gallery and there's lots of photos of NJ's beautiful people drinking and assorted Mexican themed bric a brac and decor but conspicuously missing are folks dining on actual food.I would like to have a decent Mexican place close by but am a little wary of a glowing review of essentially bar food by a first time poster. Have you eaten here and how is the food?

        1. re: Duppie

          Have not eaten there, just looked up and posted the link. Given that I live only 10 or 15 minutes from Red Bank and Long Branch puts me in close proximity to many Tex-Mex, Cal-Mex and Mex-Mex places. No need to travel nearly an hour for my Mex fix...

            1. re: equal_Mark

              Just curious =M, which places do you consider Cal-Mex and Tex-Mex and which are your favorites?
