Buckaroo Burrito opening in Bayville, prev. site of BK on Rt 9

Don't know if this as been posted yet. Drove past yesterday and the sign was up. Good to see, hopefully the shopping center ( for reference-used to be a Foodtown there) is coming back to life.

  1. Correction, drove past there again this evening, it is Bubbakoo Burrito. And they are open if anyone is interested. Looked crowded.

        My office is in Toms River, and we've ordered several times from the Route 37 location - the food is quite good - it's fresh, and the menu is very flexible, i.e. substitutions/build your own...

        1. re: Quine

          @ Quine Is it a "chain type" or a franchise??

            I'm pretty sure that it's like Surf Taco with a small ownership that has grown. To be honest, however, I don't think the food is particularly good. Nevertheless, I have gone to the one here in Manasquan* a few times because they serve a hard shell taco that has the qualities you enjoyed while in a high school cafeteria. At bottom, it's got a bit of Surf Taco and a bit of Chipotle, but it's better than either if you're baked and looking to remember what lunch was like when you were sixteen.

            * I finally got to taste the Atlantic again this morning. Hell, it was the first time I've seen it in over a month - very f*cked up when it's a half mile away and you love it. Hope the rest of the denizens of The Shore are starting to get back to normal too.

              Crazy huh? Glad you were able to make it over.

              I live east of the bridges so I've been able to get there for a while. It is unbelievable. I was talking to someone today who couldn't believe how much damage there was and all I could think was it so much better now that it was even a couple of weeks ago.


        2. Tried it today as I had time to kill before work and wanted to grab something for dinner. Inside, looked comfortable. You place your order and it is made in front of you, so you can see how fast or how slow the process is going. Nothing is written down, which I think will not work in their favor. The two dudes ahead of me kept adding things to their order as it was being made, slowing mine down, so I could watch it as it cooled down to room temp. I am sure, since three people had "hands on the additions, they ended up undercharging for it. They staff was friendly.
          The burrito was large, I had the chicken Koo's style. But by the time it was wrapped it was room temp. I took it as take out. I was impressed with the rice, it seemed to have a good hit of lime and cilantro, tho I did wish that you could have had cilantro as one of the things you could add on. The chicken I could taste, the beans (black) and pico had very little flavor register. I was disappointed that there was no fish taco, shrimp could be added as $$ extra. No Taco bell, but not great Mex either.

            I went to the one on bridge ave in PP....ordered a Burrito....they stuffed it with all kinds of tasteless ingredients,.......
            I took one bite of this dripping sopping mess and threw it out the window into the trash can in the parking lot......will never return to any of their locations....Just Horrible! If anyone wants some really good Mexican food try the Bradley cafe in Bradley Beach by far the best I've had in a very long time.

              Tapas -

              Glad to see you finally made it to The Bradley Cafe. It is still one of our favorites. Love going for Sunday Brunch. And their chilaquiles con lengua ( tongue) are the best.

                Yes Missybean....the Chicken Mole is to die for at the BRADLEY CAFE` .....& the Shrimp Scampi.....I must agree the Tacos are SUPER delicious also, I really enjoy the
                Huevos Ranchero with green Chili sauce Breakfast too.....I've been there 4 or 5 times so far and enjoy it so much every time.

                1. re: Tapas52

                  I've never had the mole at the Bradley Cafe. Is it a regular menu item? We usually do mole at Azteca (The corner of 17th and Rt 71 in West Belmar) or Cielito Lindo on Rt 71 in Manasquan. It's not on the menu but if you ask Cielto Lindo will do Mole con Barbacoa de Chivo - Goat Mole. Amazing.
