GREAT Tacos in a Citgo Gas Station?

Oh yes my friends this little gem inside the Citgo mart gas Station on Rt33 across from Lucentos Italian restaurant in Millstone NJ .........they have a nice convenience store with a grill and off to the side a really cozy secluded table area for eating. Now the best part they I would assume the very friendly Indian owners(?) serve killer good Latin food, & SUPER Tacos which I totally enjoyed, many Spanish menu choices also, besides cheese steaks, burgers, etc, etc, at very affordable prices. ..
the home made Red & Green Hot sauces is excellent also...Give it a try !....Thank me later!! enjoy!

            just finished off 3 tacos. $8 with a bag of chips and soda. They are quite good. Soft corn tortillas with pile of tomatoes and lettuces.
            The red and green sauce are great. Definitely recommended if you are driving by and looking for a good quick (slightly greasy) bite.

              I stopped by a few weeks ago with my kids and also sampled the tacos. My gold standard is North of the Border (mine were also greasy and a bit gristly), and these were not NOTB quality, but a nice find nevertheless. The owner/guy behind the counter could not have been nicer (threw in some cake on the house). He asked if we liked things spicy and cooked us up some hot peppers with the seeds still in. I don't know if they were jalapenos or some other variety (one was green and one red). They were oh so HOT; couldn't finish them off.

        1. There's a place like this up in Boston across from MGH hospital, the management could be Mexican - the tacos are great!

          1. We were jonesing for some of that really good pie and pudding made from that one source dark chocolate across Rt 33 from the Citgo so we had to try their food on our way home.
            As previously observed, it is not NoTB, but it is the third best food I have ever had at a gas station! Nice find Tapas.
            We ordered some of every kind of taco they had and found the pork the best of the bunch with a liberal amount of cracklins mixed in with the meat. The chicken was next, juicy and fresh, but the steak and the tongue were not as good - just skirt steak would have been better but I know how expensive it is.
            Still the best meal on that stretch of road now. I miss Pom Pom BBQ.
