    Written by:

    There’s nothing like a taco: corn or tortilla filled with meats, cheeses, sauces, and veggies…and some sauce to finish the jobAnd because Taco Tuesday is one of our favorite days of the week {well actually, a great thing to celebrate any day of the week}, we figured we’d share some of our favorite places in Jersey City to grab some awesome tacos — with some great Taco Tuesday deals. Here are five places to enjoy “Taco Tuesday” in Jersey City {and JC Heights}.

    1. Taqueria Mi Mariachi {213 Sip Ave}

    You can find this hidden gem tucked away in Journal Square {just minutes from the JSQ PATH}. The authentic Mexican food will take your taste buds on vacation and you definitely won’t be stopping at just two {or three} tacos.  Simple menu + fresh ingredients = awesome taco Tuesday!  Disclaimer: it’s a bit of a hole in the wall {the best usually are} and has just a couple small tables and a few counter stools, so calling ahead for pickup may in your best interest!

    2. Taqueria Downtown {236 Grove St}

    You may remember this from our post back in October, but Taqueria it is still worthy of a major Taco Tuesday shout out.  This downtown star is probably one the most popular spots {the consistent line outside gives that away} but is nothing short of legit Mexican deliciousness.  Go early and eat lots because their extremely reasonable prices won’t leave you feeling guilty. Plus, with the weather getting warmer, try and get a seat out back!

    3. Taqueria Viva Mexico Kitchen Cafe {133 Morris St}

    Not be confused with the two restaurants above, this quaint taqueria is located in the heart of Paulus Hook.  The menu has many variations of tacos to chose from and the warm and attentive staff will make you feel at home.  The complimentary chips and salsa may win you over immediately but what’s more is it’s BYOB {score!}.

    4. Los Tres Chilitos {456 Central Ave, Jersey City Heights}

    This well kept JC Heights secret is the best Mexican restaurant in the Heights {we think so at least}. They serve nothing but delicious authentic Mexican food and there is usually novela playing in the background to make you feel like you’re in Mexico at the local taqueria.  The portions are big but their prices are not…and you know it’s legit because they’re so awesome they don’t even need a website to keep the house packed.  Need to wash those tacos down with something?  Quench your thirst with a soda in an old fashioned bottle or bring your own because this spot is BYOB too!

    5. Orale Mexican Kitchen {341 Grove St}

    This self proclaimed “chilltown” has great food and even better margaritas.  The decor is awesome and pays great homage to Dia de Muertos.  What’s better than taco tuesday? 50% off tacos on Taco Tuesday!  Thats right, go on a Tuesday night, pay in cash and your tacos will be half off {that means its half the calories too right?}.

     Which Jersey City location will you chose for your next Taco Tuesday?

    Christine is a born-and-raised Jersey Girl who landed in Jersey City several years ago. After a year of living in JC and absolutely loving it, Christine and her husband decided to make it a little more permanent and buy their own little piece of downtown Jersey City. When she isn’t crunching numbers as a merchandise planner in NYC, you can find her strolling down Newark Avenue heading to Barre, running along the waterfront, trolling the awesome JC vintage shops or discovering another great place to grab a bite to eat. If she’s not enjoying all that Jersey City has to offer, you will most likely find her on her couch…watching Bravo.
